It's definitely not a waste of money. It just takes a considerable amount of time and planning to have success. I incorporate SEO as a long-term strategy and use LinkedIn for immediate leads for my business. Here's a good tutorial on LinkedIn here: http://www.udemy.com/linkedin-for-entrepreneurs

I'm sorry but what you're saying is completely wrong. SEO is the most important part of ranking a web page, how else are you going to rank unless you're extremely rich?
Definitely not a waste, especially since the changes. Quality is the focus, so SEO becomes that much more relevant. Quality back links can be generated quite easily using the WebFire Tool.
You must back link from a relative topic for it to be useful/helpful. It's nice that Google is recognizing this as it eliminates the spamming that was so prevalent.
I disagree, SEO is not a waste of money. However, it is important to remember not to put all your eggs in one basket. Make sure you have other revenue streams than the search engines. A few other ideas for revenue streams could be:
After Google Panda and Penguin updates many of peoples think that SEO is now dead but its just their imagination, according to me, and my experiance till yet now SEO is based upon only on quality and authority work, don't use the grabing or scam or spun articles just unique content is the king, and the links from low PR websites are now cancer for the authority or your money site. Just tries to get the links from High PR websites and sue lot of social signals.
I think this is good in Google, if we will do the same task every time, we get bored. If Google change his algorithm then we search new things and experiment on that. It always good for us. Few years back only directory submission and link building was enough but now we have to perform lot of stuffs to maintain the ranking of the site.
No its not waste of time or money if you do have a proper approach and follow the Google guidelines you can easily get traffic to increase exposure of your business..!
SEO not waste money, It just take time.
