    SEO is not dead. Since the panda change, people are just adapting to the new system. If you don't do that much blackhat, you shouldn't have seen that much difference (or at least I didn't). Just think quality content, links, and proper SEO on websites like usual.

    I believe that backlinks still count in google's eye. They have hidden the backlinks from us in hopes that it will deter us and throw us off. There are a lot of other factors at play now though. SEO is far from dead. If there is a system then there is a system to manipulate said system.

    On Page SEO
    Build local google + for your products and services if they are local.
    Build great content
    linkwheels still work
    Diversify what you use just as always and don't just do backlinks
    and so on....

    SEO is dead.
    Now google is putting all sites related to a niche in a hat, and decide the rankings that way.

    One way backlinks. No footprint, drip fed.

    Social Bookmark + BMR posts all day.

    Those people are failures.

    How do you think G is ranking sites for billions of search terms today? Casting chicken bones? It is still a bounded algorithm with a fixed number of factors that can be derived through multivariate analysis.

    Very well said, with the change of time you need to change your strategy to survive in this IM world. Its working pretty fine for those who are not pin point to one single strategy.

    SEO definitely is not dead! I am doing better than before. The major advantage of Panda updates is that all the garbage sites who were above me have all been removed. My sites are info sites with in sidebar affiliate offers. Quality!

    Also I am also using senuke, xrumer, etc. But I use it in a certain way that benefits me: i.e. not blasting at my money site

    Maybe black hat spamming/scraping techniques are dying, but my white-hat sites are currently flourishing better than ever.

    I would second BreakAllTheCocks...

    SEO is not dead, it can't be dead. I am optimizing my website for search results and I am pretty happy with the results.

    Every year optimization techniques are coming in and dying out, and those who are still sticking to old school techniques are saying about the death of the SEO.
