Is there anything else that should be on this list? Aside from specific techniques or practices, what were some of the noteworthy changes in the SEO playbook and organic search landscape for 2007?

The ability to associate your domain with a region/country via Webmaster Tools was a biggie that I don’t see listed. It provided the ability to change the way your site appears in regional search results.

Wouldnt sponsered/paid for links also be included in that list? Though it is similar to Sponsored Blog posts I guess.
