Who said this to you? No link building is still effective for SEO. But yes there are lots of changes have from time to time. As Google has been so smart, you can't use black hat or spam techniques for creating backlinks. Natural link building has always worth.

I think link building is still effective as before.
Google improved his algorithm in many way, adapting it to an environment (the Web) in continous evolution.
But links between sites remain the "core" of Google and of WWW in general.

Links still matter and it is still effective in SEO. It is still the best way to improve search visibility. Link building naturally goes hand in hand with other online marketing activities. It sends positive signals to Google, and can help improve a bad backlink profile. When done correctly, link building can help create and propel new relationships.

It is still effective but not at all like it was like 5 years ago when automatic softwares were used to build tons of links.

Nowdays link building is more leaned towards quality then quantity of the links. It is till close to impossible to rank without links, but if links are spammy or irelevant you are risking to get penalized.

Lots of people here repeat them selves, however there is one key element you need to know about the changes of link building.

Google has reversed the process, so now it matter more whats on the website where your links are coming from, - hence shitty links give you shitty results (worst case a penalty) - than what is on the website where the links land.

In other words, make sure your links are relevant for your own website, and that they are coming from strong domains with a lot of trust.

Earlier link building was done even from websites which were not related to the niche. But as Google started rolling out updates these low-quality links were classified as spam. Hence if we speak in this sense, then the link building has lost its importance. But even today whenever links obtained from quality and niche relevant sites it does help to get a better position for the website

Link building surely still works, but not the same way it did 7-10 years ago. The focus now is on earning quality links from relevant web sites. That begins with building relationships and networking.

I think third party referencing is still compelling as some time recently.

Google enhanced his calculation in some way, adjusting it to a domain (the Web) in continous development.

In any case, interfaces between locales remain the "center" of Google and of WWW when all is said in done.

It is still compelling yet not in any way like it resembled 5 years back when programmed virtual products were utilized to assemble huge amounts of connections.

Nowdays third party referencing is more inclined towards quality then amount of the connections. It is till near difficult to rank without connections, however in the event that connections are spammy or irelevant you are gambling to get punished.

Earlier quantity link building used to help to increase the traffic and ranking of the website. But now building quantity of links will negatively impact your website as now Google gives more importance to the website who are focusing more on quantity links.

If you will build quality of backlinks it with the help your website to increase the traffic and ranking, but if you will focus on building quantity of link than it can also get your website penalized by Google Algorithm.

When it comes to linkbuilding, relevancy and on-page quality are the most important metrics that you need to focus on.

If you can get a link from a quality site that relates to your domain then you should be good. There is no such thing as “natural” linkbuilding you just have to make sure that you use common sense when choosing to place your links.
