1. Stop trying to be rid of paid links.
As long as links play a major role in the ranking of a website for a given term or terms...
The paper about PageRank is called,"The PageRank Citation Ranking: Bringing Order to the Web." It's citation ranking, not link ranking. The next step is to think about the different kinds of citations there are. I think Google is way out ahead of webmasters again, this time over link-less citations [webmasterworld.com].
