    " What is the most recent myth in SEO that you stopped believing in? "

    I am trying to do a crowd sourced post / Interview post sort of stuff on my blog but I don't want to sound noobish to those big Pro bloggers and reduce chances of getting answers. Actually what I want to do is to ask pro bloggers about the myth that they had been believing in and they stopped believing it in the recent past. Like the latest ones they stopped believing in.

    Any corrections to the question will be really appreciated.

    It's already correct.

    Could also say it like this:
    "Whats the most recent SEO myth, that you stopped believing?"

    Personally, I would write it like this:

    I think it's OK for the most part. Maybe "What is the most recent SEO myth that you stopped believing?"

    Lol at some peoples suggestions having worse grammer than OP.

    I think your OP was fine OP.

    Also I dont see any problem with claiming a belief in a myth? It doesnt have to be true for someone to believe something. Never stopped Bible bashers.

    What SEO 'fact' did you most recently find to be fiction?

    Just an idea

    I also think your version is fine. However just to throw another option out there, this is how I'd write it.

    Are there any SEO techniques that you recently discovered to be myths?

    ^^^ Good! Before I scrolled down and saw this^^^^ I was going to suggest using the phrase "What SEO method have you recently discover to be a myth?"
    The OP original wording was not bad it just sounded a little clumsy.
    Good Luck!
