I have to agree with what wheel stated above about having quality content that will generate links on it's own. It just doesn't seem to happen as much anymore on most occasions. I wish I could be more helpful with my response, Amy.
Self-placed links on forums and profile pages/links seem to be boosting pages towards the top of SERP's these days. I have seen it happen over the last few months with a site that I've watched for a while now, and much to my dismay, that site is ranking higher and climbing the rankings each week for certain terms with ease. Those seem to be the one way links that count now, and that's just disturbing to me. Can't stop shaking my head about seeing those results...and it's for a one-word term search.
