There seem to be three camps of people when it comes to their focus on SEO: the avoider, the dabbler and the committed. Regardless of which camp you belong to currently, you must realize that the changes to search-engines are perpetual and with each change comes new ad- justments that increase or decrease the impact to anything you may have done to “improve” the performance of your site.

When one method is overused, creating a poor result-set, the mighty Google will adjust the weighting to rebalance the results.
