Contextual links versus non contextual link

Hello,

What is the value on a scale from 0 to 10 of a contextual link versus links on under each other on a page (kind of a directory even though there are only less than 10 on the page).

Did google devaluate non contextual links ?

Please help...

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
