Is SEO Dead?

I remember the good old days when SEO was easy! There was a course I took called "Stomping The Search Engines" written by Brad Fallon that basically was a perfect road map for ranking your keywords on Google, Bing and Yahoo!

It was really cool and really easy. The basic premise was to get as many backlinks as possible pointing to your site or a particular web page and make sure the link was using the proper anchored text.

Well, viola, as soon as you did that, the results started to appear almost instantly.

That was then, and this is now. Things change and one day Google decided to turn everything on its head. Basically, all the sites that were doing what worked, were delisted from google or sent to the dungeon of search results in a swift kick in the ass algorithm change.

So the question remains. Does SEO still work?
