Just as a matter of interest, what _are_ the latest SEO techniques?

I regard the following as broadly helpful for SEO, but has anyone a more 
definitive or current set of guidelines?

1. Nice to have a common keyword in the domain name - but not in the 
"free.get-your-hot-sex-viagra-doodads-here.com" sense
2. Keyword rich titles
3. About 200 words of well-written copy, including about three natural 
occurrences of relevant keywords
4. keywords within anchor tags linking to documents whose titles include 
the same keywords
5. keywords near anchor tags linking to relevant documents
6. Non-reciprocal links from respected sources that use relevant 
keywords within or near the anchor text
