Add a descriptive page title and meta tags to your web pages.

Place your targeted keywords in H1 headers.

Be sure to have your keywords well placed in your website content.

Get quality backlinks which are relevant to your website.

Make the site easy to navigate - if you use buttons for your navigation add text links at the bottom of the page so that search engines can index all of your pages

Don't overstuff your page with keywords.

Use the title setting in your links. For example:
<a href="http://www.hooverwebdesign.com" title="professional web design" target="_blank">Hoover Web Design</a>

Use alt tags on all of your images For example:
<img src="images/460x68_flashphtoogallery.gif" width="460" height="68" border="0" alt="Flash Photo Gallery"></a>
