In fact we did not do back linking. The only thing we have been doing is posting articles, social bookmarking and maintaining social profiles on (FB, Twitter and Pinterest). No Back linking in past 18 months.
You aren't large enough. Doesn't anyone get it? Google is trying to give results that people not only want, but expect. When searching for online dates, they want to present the big players; match, zoosk, okcupid, etc. Google doesn't care if you've optimized to take advantage of certain words, they want to present the big players.
Small sites are not in Google's future. You WILL be pushed out.
