    I'm amazed a blog post with literally no new info. can get "987 tweets", "331 Likes", & "80 comments", let alone an extra backlink.

      If they posted a Nazi manifesto, it would get just as many likes and shares.

      ...it may not be new info, but ALOT of people could do with the reminder.

      It's just because they're a well known "authority".

      I have never read anything remotely insightful or helpful @ seomoz.

    Don't believe everything you read. Test things for yourself, that's the only way to get to the truth.

    Apart from that, what Yukon said.

    Nope, content isn't the only important thing. I'm currently ranking sites with just 3 lines of keyword stuffed text using xrumer. It's about how you backlink that gets results. Granted they don't stay forever, but they've been up there for nearly 2 months now and counting!

    I also use very poorly spun content with auto submitting software. All of it is 100% unreadable, but very very unique. Actually is doing very well for me at the moment.

    Didn't some guy that works for SEOmoz say negative SEO wasn't true and impossible, then his personal website got blasted by negative SEO and he quickly lost rank then got a message from Google telling him to remove his backlinks immediately. Then he cried he got negative SEO'd and said Google was unfair?

    I remember reading something about this..,
