1) Does keyword research matter anymore? If so, what's the best keyword researcher tool out there these days? I hear the Google Keyword Tool is going away.
2) What about links going back to your Wordpress site? Does Google penalize you for them like I'm reading?
3) What about Social Signals like Facebook "likes". Are they vital now? If so, with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, etc... What are the most important ones?
4) Will articles on sites like EZines, HubPages & Squidoo hurt you? Some seem to think so.
5) Is there a guide out there on the Warrior Forum or "somewhere" with the latest info that is highly recommended these days? Not interested in a WSO where only the author or the people promoting it makes money...
