Senior Google Engineer Matt Cutts discusses links versus social signals. According to Matt links are still extremely important, and are not going away anytime soon.

Discussion around the Web:
From Search Engine Roundtable

My take away was that Matt Cutts says links are still, for the foreseeable future, going to be a more powerful signal for search rankings than social signals.

From SearchEngineWatch

Are Links a Dying Signal?
No. “There’s a perception that everything will go social and links will be obsolete but I wouldn’t write the epitaph for links just yet,” he said.
