My site has been online for around 14months. So I think Im outta the google age delay.
Im currently happy enough with my Yahoo and Msn rankings for my keywords, but google aint as good.
Im searchable by google and some of my keywords are actually ranked on page 1, so not too bad. But my major really competitive keywords Im absolutely no where to be found. When I look at my site compared to the sites who rank well with these keywords I do actually believe my sites content and layout is a lot more relevant than any of them, let alone the top 100. Yet Im not even ranked at all for these major keywords relating to my site.
I like the layout and im happy with my visitor conversion rate to sales, so the site is good in that respect.
I currently use PPC to get myself ranked high on my major keywords but I would obviously love to be naturally ranked high on google.
So after that large post Im actually getting to my question
Would re-submitting my site to the major search engines and directories help me at all?
Or would the likes of google class it as identical content and look upon it as spam resubmitting my site again?
Thought I'd check with you guys first before going ahead with it and it having a negative effect or just being pointless.
Sorry for the long post. Any advice is much appreciated.

No, resubmitting what they already have would just be a waste of your time and their bandwidth.
All I can say is you need to better optimize your site and/or become more popular than the other sites. Read our Tips for Newbies to make sure you've done all you should do.
The other suggestion would be to refine your keyword phrases so that you're not targeting highly competitive ones only. There may be hundreds of keywords that get a decent number of searches per day that you could be optimizing your pages for that you're missing out on.
Once you become an active member of our community, feel free to post a site review here which would allow us to see what you're doing now. For now, set aside some time to do a lot of reading up on the subject so you can try to figure out where exactly you're going wrong with your current optimization.

Kinda sorta, but not really.
More links doesn't mean a whole lot.
When I say more popular, that's exactly what I mean, more popular. The one who has the most links isn't always the most popular. They might have just purchased some link bonanza extravaganza software. Or they may have joined a text link ad program to purchase link ads.
None of those things mean a site is necessarily the most popular. Not by a long shot. And apparently the engines are starting to agree and realize that too (or are at least learning to figure out the difference).
