austtr I agree with everything you've said..almost. I've never outsourced my link development, have stayed oldschool whitehat on my main site, and it mostly works. I got disheartened last year, but I'm re-energized with a new project that I think is going to give me plenty of new links by leveraging social media. All I did was twist what I've been doing before - answer the question 'why would someone give me a link'.
It's either harder than it used to be for sure, or maybe one just has to keep coming up with new ideas. My old stuff wasn't working anymore is all.
