What are the keywords you’re targeting?
i.e. what phrases are your customers entering into the search engines?
Do they appear on your web pages, if so is their density too high or too low?
For most sites a density of 5 – 7% is disireable. Ie. Your keyword should appear 5 – 7 times e.g. 100 words.
Too low then your pages are not sufficiently relevant.
Too high and you may be tripping spam filters.
Are you using your keywords in each of your tags, title, description and keywords.
Remember that shorter tags are more focused than longer ones.

Links on relevant sites are much more valuable than none-related sites.
