The easiest way to increase your Google rankings is to increase the size of your website. That's the reason why Wikipedia ranks #1 on Google for so many keywords.
The simplest way to increase the size of your website is to add a blog and post to it as frequently as possible. The more frequently you can post, the faster you will see an increase in rankings and traffic.
Focus on producing the highest quality articles you can for your blog. Educate, inform and entertain... don't sell! Adding value (instead of selling) will result in more links to your website and higher SEO rankings.
Ask yourself these questions:
The nuts and bolts of SEO marketing are keywords. They are important for one reason and one reason only. They allow businesses who seek search engine rankings to target their rankings by using the correct language.
If you think about it, this is what good marketing has always done. Marketers deploy language for the purpose of persuasion. They hope to get their target audience to think about things by using the correct language and getting them to think and take action. SEOs do this using a specific type of language that is intended for two audiences.
The first audience is the human audience. You want your online content to speak to your human target audience in a way that your human audience takes action. That action, you hope, is to do business with you.
Your second audience is the search engines. Or their spiders. Search engine spiders are computer programs that crawl the Web through links and analyze the content on the pages. Today's search engine spiders are very sophisticated compared to the spiders of fifteen or twenty years ago. They analyze keywords, links, images, and a host of other on-page and off-page factors to determine the rankings of web pages for specific key phrases.
Because search engines have a ranking system, search engine optimizers try to target their content to the spiders in order to influence them on that ranking system. The goal is to increase their chances at getting good rankings.
Keywords are the nuts and bolts, the basic building fundamentals, of good SEO. If you want to rank well, start with good keyword research.

If you can imagine yourself thumbing through an old card catalog system at your local library, you'd find that there is a certain quality to the system. Every book is cataloged according to a numerical system called the Library of Congress cataloging system. And you see all the same basic information with every listing. It's designed that way on purpose.
While the Internet is certainly not your public library (and much of the information you find online is suspect), in terms of finding the information that you want to find, there is a quality system built into the search engines where people go to search for information.
Each search engine has its own quality guidelines, but the leading search engine - Google - sets the standard. You can learn more about Google's quality guidelines on its website.
Bing, the No. 2 search engine online, also has its quality guidelines. Note that they're not a great deal different than Google's.
While there are similarities to the quality guidelines, there are also subtle differences. That's why website owners will often find their web pages doing well in one search engine while not doing so well in others. But you also have to consider the level of competition. For almost any niche there is quite a bit more competition for Google search rankings than for search rankings at any other search engine - even at Bing.
So what should you make of this? As the owner of a business who is trying to get your web pages to rank for your key terms, it's important to know the search engine guidelines and to abide by them. There are penalties if you do certain things wrong. And the rewards for doing all the right things right include higher rankings, more targeted traffic to your website, and more revenues from good landing pages that close the sale.
