I think it remains hard, no matter what one does. Link exchanges are
artificial and very time-consuming to get. There is also a chicken-and-egg
situation, for generating word of mouth, much like newspapers that establish
status _over time_.
A few sites I can think of as helpful are the various geo-url's. Beyond this,
if your site's content contributes to or extends some peripheral project,
your link will be included because it is desirable and relevant. The latter
is how I got started. It was important stream of a dozen visitors back in
late 2004. The other useful step was subscription to content (e.g. via RSS),
which brought visitors back. I don't know if that 'syndication wagon' is too
later to catch up with now... many people /still/ don't use feeds.
