It's funny. Just after a first glance I see your website has a lack of media info - video, pictures. Your website has uncomfortable small font. Unreadable address. All of  these is the reason of worser behaviour factors.

You are absolutely to redesign your website nad improve usability. Remember that links are only ~40% of succeed

i know that. my question is specifically what they are doing that the search engines count to bring them higher...it's not links, keyword density, freshness of the content...

You should focus on the on site of your website rather than off-site or link building and you should always use quality content on your web pages as well as in your shared content and content marketing.
