    I cannot say that drastic strategy changes are needed now. Everything is the same: on-page factors, thorough keyword research, perfect content, natural links, social media presence. Pretty much the same it was in 2012. Just need to be more careful about several particular factors.
    I know very few SEOs that were pissed of changing their strategies, because they do not need to change them. It still works and I believe will be working for months or more.

    Bes Link Building is Drip Feed with Link Diversity..It is better to build 100 Links per day Manual through Out Months for 2-3 Months and see effects. Main Thing is If you do 1 single Type of links like people in Mid of 2012 Were doing only or I say Mostly Blog Comments with help of Scrapebox.That is no more effective.
    Now if you do Daily with quality you get results..
    Tools are Part of Game not Full Game Plan in any Link Building Strategy.

    The basic rule of thumb : Look at the top 10 competitors. Analyse their backlinks and see how they have done their anchor text. On the basis you can build links.
    There are some niches where all the top 10 competitors are copying content but still google ranks them. So its all relative. See what top 10 are doing..or atleast top 5 and you will get a good idea on how to proceed

    And this is evergreen method.

    Agreed with hardcorebiker the best way to find and build backlinks is by analyzing backlinks that your top ranking competitors have. Then sort their backlinks by PR and Alexa and try to get backlinks to your site from sources that have PR of 3+ and Alexa 200,000 -

    I just automate everything, just diversity your link, control your link velocity, spun content still works for me even for tier 1, spent some time to monetize and spin your article properly, make sure its media rich (image/video), use h2, h3 tag randomly, avoid using same number of paragraph/sentence and link placing.

    Not just it, there is few of my competitors who ranking with few bad quality backlinks comparing to my thousands of backlinks. and many of competitors backlinks coming from private blog network when this is banned from Google.

    I still do what i do back in the 09.

    The difference is, i use more branded name/domain name, naked url
    more than my real anchors.

    Every other things remain the same..

    I think the same that went for 2012 goes for 2013. You need to have quality content that is completely unique. Then start to build links
    in a natural fashion, don't rush them, and don't keyword stuff. Get involved with social media. Write articles and post them on blogs.

    Even the strategies of linkbuilding still are similiar, now the content is more important than ever.

    Its sounds like a typical dogmatic phrase from Google, but... Each day i see how this factor is becoming more relevant.

    Use Google plus as much as you can. Get people in your Google plus circle as many as you can. Stop doing Anchor text too much. Do it only 10-20%. Use phrases like "click here" "visit our site for more info" etc. in your anchor text. Write quality content which solve a problem don't just write anything. Write daily. If you do this then believe me let Google do whatever they doing but they will be in Love with you.

    Definitely feel the thread. The way I move forwards with it is a lot of varied links. For example (as someone said) don't always smash the same link building. Instead of throwing out thousands of blog commenting, space everything out.

    Generally I plan my days via the week, eg:
    Monday - directories
    Tuesday - forums
    Wednesday - blog commenting
    Thursday - web 2.0's
    Friday - guest post, etc, etc

    This is easier for you to manage and know what you are going to automate (or do manually) and for Google (and my extensive experience) it seems natural enough, as they ALL get approved at different rates and times, etc.
    Use similar tactics but be smart about their quality and the execution.
