    This site was built last month and then all we focused on was backlinks. We have very little content whatsoever. Obviously you can tell who's algorithm sucks. :)

    My content rich e-commerce site recently got moved down to page 2 from a #3 spot for primary keyword. None of the sites that are now above mine can even compete in terms of relevancy, content or site age. Some are nothing more than adsense sites. Some of them have more backlinks than me but some of them don't. Google sucks...can't wait for some one to knock them off their high horse.

    Google's algorithm is a myth for everyone. Apply for google re-consideration and they will manually look at your blog and do the need full.

    Backlinks probably always will be god from now on but having the content to go with it is definitely the way to generate lasting results. These days I see sites with few links and lots of good content rank just as I still see sites with little/duplicate content ranking due to lots of links.

    If you have both content AND links you are laughing all the way to the first page usually.

    This isn't very informative... If you have excellent do follow links from really high authority sites, this isnt anything new?
