    Create a valuable service that people link to, or viral marketing.

    just put your blog URL under your signature. it will help google to crawl your site.
    and you can do link exchange with other sites/blogs too.

    I wrote a short article about finding people to link to you and there is a small interactive tool there as well. Finding Sites to Link to You.

    That was funny. Someone posts a message about using proper English, and then makes a mistake himself. :) haha "you" should have been "your". English should have been capitalized too for that matter.

    In my case (about):

    10% natural links.
    20% link exchanges.
    15% links from my other sites.
    5% paid links.
    50% directories.

    By time I want to increase the natural links by increasing the quality of my sites, those are truly the most valuable.

    Ok .. Let me give you one now. English is my second language though, so I hope i can raise to your expectations:

    Another suggestion i can give you, is taking a class for proper gentlemanship. I'm sure your potential forum coleagues will appreciate that very much!

    ;)

    Hegs : Some advices :

    1. Put your website in the signatures of forums, like DP for example, or any other you may visit.
    2. Put your website in any e-mail you send.
    3. Subscribe your website to directories.
    4. Make scripts meant to be taken by webmasters, and put on their website, with a link back to you.
    5. Create a web directory for your website, and participate in reciprocal exchanges, with websites related to your theme.
    6. Ask friends (who have websites) to help you with some links, because you are "small" for now, and you want to grow.
    7. Write articles for subjects you are good in, in specialised websites, and put your author signature (including website link) there.
    8. Buy links form text link brokerage firms, or from forums like DP.
    9. Make a personal blog (there are tons of open-source blogs, including a very handy one, free, online : www.blogspot.com ) and write your thoughts there. Put a link to your main site.
    10. Make an open-source Windows XP professional software, and ask every user to put a link back to your site, as gratitude. That should get you a PR 23 for starters. ;)

    Cheers.

    One more advice:
    try to start co-branded services, offer it to other webmasters and in return you'll get links back to your site.

    Just a tip, the more articles you submit, the more value they each have.

    Every time you submit an article to a site, a link is created to your author profile.

    The author profile becomes a hub of information that is highly targetted to your niche, and provides a very powerful one-way link to your website.

    If you submit to loads of article directories, you have multiple hubs pointing directly to your website. These are often on PR6 or PR7 sites.

    Whilst initially these hubs will appear in SERPs more than your own site, eventually you will raise above the article sites.

    If you have submitted a few articles, just do a search on your own name.

    You will also see this effect from posting on forums, and some forums allow you very extensive ways to customize you user profile, in effect making it a mini site driving traffic to your site initially, and eventually raising your own site in the SERPs.
