While both are necessary, good content attracts natural links. Focusing on link building can be harmful. So content is higher on the food chain, so to speak. But without links, it won't be seen.

Yes, Content is more effective than link-building but link-building also important.

Both are important as without quality content you can't get quality links so if you focus on creating good content then it will result in good back links..

Both are important to get better ranking in Google SERP. But the value of content is more then the link. If your content is unique and informative then people will link you back automatically.

So focus on high quality content.

Content and link building is very much important for SEO. Without content we cannot build link for the website.

No off course not why because posting unique content will not provide you a backlink and it won't help to rank in the search engine. So both content and link building is important, combination of both resulted in to good rankings in the search engine

Both, the link building and content are important to rank your website in search engine. As search engines use links to crawl the web; they will crawl the links to find a new web pages. After this crawling process the content of those pages are indexed and depending on the quality of content, search engine decide to rank or not the web page. In this way, to get crawl links are important and to rank quality content is important.

I hope you get my point.
