It seems Google is reducing the importance of links and moving forward to something that we hardly know :) . Visitors stay, bounce rate etc as my small SEO knowledge is concern are going to play major role in determining ranking. So, could you or anyone else from Google give us more information about it and I am not asking you to reveal the secrets though :). I think we need some detailed information apart from producing great content, engaging visitors and all that. And though I am an SEOer by profession, I will appreciate if the value of links as a major ranking signal take a beating.
