It feels as if the axiom that every successful strategy (in this case, SEO around links) eventually eats itself holds true. This begs a few questions. Are Google and Bing far behind? How does a search engine that ignores links perform? Finally, once all the SEO madness wanes due to algorithmic obsolescence, would links again become a strong signal, thus creating a cyclic pattern with ever decreasing half-lifes of link utility?
