Link Building Then and Now

Using the same tactics that built my success, but seeing no further improvement

a couple of years back i created some rich content pages and did some link development - submitting each page to 2 quality directories (a mixture of paid and free submissions), the result was happily that the pages shot up the rankings (espec on google).

over the last couple of months i've tried to boost usage of these pages as they've been static or declining since the first time around - again submitting each page to a couple of quality directories - this time nothing.

these pages won't appeal to bloggers and have no press value, its just editorial content to attract users to my site (which is largly search based), but users do enter via these pages they tend to stay and the site has good PR. any ideas on what to do here would be welcome... thanks!

It might be a good idea to add some fresh content. You should try getting links from places other than directories to create a more diverse and natural linking pattern.

Just need more links. SEO is not hard. Don't dupe and get links.

herbie, how often do you publish fresh significant original content that benefits your end users? I ask because its not all about links anymore.. and webmasters won't link to a site that is not thriving.

If you beef up your content, webmasters will be more likely to link to your site.
