I haven't said that social media and old link building aren't factors. They are.
Don't you think that SM, # of links and pages targeting long tail KW are what makes the search results biased, inaccurate and not-so-good?
Wouldn't you prefer that search engines shell put more weight to these signals: page-was-printed, page-was-emailed, page-was-bookmarked (and revisited), something was downloaded, time-on-site, bounce-rate, exit-rate, visitors-buy (covert), direct-traffic, pages-per-visit, traffic-from-other-sites (including SM), traffic-from-newsletters etc. etc.
