Link Building for a B2B Website

Hi all. Am looking to develop links into a business site which at the moment is a TBPR1 and is being beaten by TBPR3 & 4 sites in the rankings.

I am looking for some tips. so far I have

1) Dmoz - checked the status of the site in dmoz.org and its listing is on a zero ranked page, I think it could have a second listing so will be going for that. Is dmoz still important?

2) Yahoo directory? is that valuable these days?

3) what about other paid sites like business.com ?

4) Reverse engineering competitor sites: I have looked at a few enemy sites and found where they got their links from and where appropriate plan to get links from the same places. But this is only going to get me towards what the enemy are doing, it will not permit me to beat them!

So that is what I am thinking of at the moment.

Looking for tips, it is some time since I did this last.

What would you suggest?

First, 86 TBPR, means nothing. Second, develop natural links where possible. Don't pay for anything. And give it time. Time is your friend, not your enemy...unless you need to make a buck three-eighty over night. In which case you are screwed. (Figure out what a buck three-eighty is and you'll know what I mean).

Hi tangor. Thing is, natural linkings for a business site does not seem like such an easy idea. I mean who would link to a site selling widgets from their site?

There is a link to the the forum Library at the top of the page.
Invest a few hours reading through it - its all there.

Widget enthusiast clubs.
Information sites about the widget industry
If you have a B&M outlet then a variety of local information sites
That's just from a few seconds thought.

I doubt there will be any enthusiasts sites, this is a technical / industrial widget :-)

Information sites, there are some, looking at them now.

"B&M"? what does B&M stand for?

I am going to reverse engineer my enemies sites in bing (look for inward links) because it seems to show more than google.

I don't have a lot of ideas about local links at the moment.
