So, this is a three months old SEO - related thread and links have just been brought up once by martinibuster and that mentioning generated no replies? If this were a Google - related thread, the word links would have been used at least three times in every reply.
I'm just trying to wrap my head around this: bingdude talked about every little detail (even meta keywords for cry sake) yet he did not mention links which Google puts at #1, #2 and #3 in their Design and content guidelines and the entire section of their "SEO Starter Guide" titled "Promote your website in the right ways" is only about backlinks (their term, they don't call it just links)
So, would anyone see this as an indication that links (internal and external) are not as prevalent in Bing's algo as they are in Google's? Or is this just an attempt at avoiding mentioning the elephant in the room?
