I learned my lesson about depending on Google and trying to game their system.  In the long run, it’s just not worth it.

My sites that gave Google what they want have survived and are still getting lots of free search engine traffic.  What they want is simple – high quality, unique content that gets shared by readers, and legitimate links from relevant sites.
