Links are still the king for old testament SEO but don't think for a second that the new ranking currencies like social can't be gamed just as easily.
Sites that are ranking that have no backlinks but are kicking butt with social media? Like, none.
The social media currency is worthless to businesses looking to rank. It's probably pretty good spending money for SEO companies looking to sell services to clueless companies though (I'm doing some of that myself).
