Default building links????

Recently I had built some information pages with good content and keywords. I built about 20 pages but I see only 4 pages out of them crawled by Google on January 7th (in google's cache). The remaining pages are not crawled: last crawled dec 23rd. Do you think I should submit the remaining 16 pages to http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl to be crawled by Google? Will this make any difference in having links to my page? Or is that considered spam?

Its not considered spam since it is google's url submit location, but it is more like a placebo than a solution. To increase google's spidering of your site you need to increase the linking to your site/pages from other pages established in google. The higher their pr, the quicker it will happen as google's spidering is dependant on this. Have you considered increasing your links, and in particular deep linking where the links are directly to your internal pages? That's where I would spend my time.

i would suggest creating a sitemap in html and xml format, create a google account, point the sitemap's url and from there your pages will be crawled.

Internal linking via a site map or via regular text links within your site is one way to get more of your site indexed, but Logan's suggestion of seeking out more deep links is the way I'd go.

The more (quality) links in to your site the more likely Google is to dig around in search of more content.

I am not quite sure what deep linking is. Do you mean other pages such as business directories etc referrring directly to our internel pages? Or the pages within my site referring for more information directly to that specific page?

A deep link refers to a link that goes to a page "deep" within your site. In other words, something other than your home page.

A lot of people try to build links just to their main url (domain.com) without realizing the value of also building links to inner pages. (domain.com/page.html)

Instead of linking back to main page of site, a page that is one level down. If you had florist site you might do this "Christmas Flowers" to page that sold christmas flowers and not the main page. The idea is to get the crawlers to drill down into the site.
If you don't have some sort of a site map then you should really try and start on that.

Navigational structure also plays big role- the links you have as your standard nav links site wide.They should be your stronger terms and pointing to "important pages". This can give pages a boost.
HTH!
