    www.searchmetrics.com have published a report of a comprehensive SEO case study they conducted a few months back:

    "This white paper deals with the definition and evaluation of factors that have
    high rank correlation coefficients with top organic search results and aims to
    provide a more in-depth analysis of search engine algorithms. The data collection
    and its evaluation refer to Ranking Factors and Rank Correlation for Google.com
    in 2013."

    I took some quick notes whilst reading and here are the main factors you should be concerned with if you are too lazy to read, but this is a interesting report for anyone involved with SEO. Numbers next to the ranking factors are on a scale of 1-0, with 1 meaning important with 0 being less important.
