Major search engines look for relevant content. They want to provide a good experience for there users without lots of ads and spam. So the way to start is by giving them what they want, Content. Start by writing a keyword rich article relevant to your niche. Use note pad and save them. If you have a niche that sells MP3 write 2 or 3 articles about MP3. You want to use your main keyword once for every 100 words in each article. Find 2 or 3 secondary keyword and sprinkle them around the article. IMO articles between 450 and 1200 words is optimal. Wordtracker is is the best way to find Keyword You can use the Free Keyword tool.

Stay within Googles TOS. If you are selling products like MP3 Players, ipods or free online games insert 1 or 2 well placed links to those pages. Don't be to spammy. Make the page look authoritative.
After you have your article set up and your Digg and StumbleUpon icons in your postfooter using Feedburner or Digg Tools or sidebar you will now tell the social sites about your article. Simply click the icon and then go to submit. When you submit the story the submission should include tags. Keywords relevant to the story. Use between 4 and 12 tags.

One way to market on the Internet is to search for relevant blogs and leave a comment and include your sites URL. allows readers to leave backlinks and comments.

If the reader is engaged they will likely stay on the page and look around. You can also trade Diggs and Stumbles on Web Master Forums. There is also sites like Piqq that trade Diggs Stumbles and Propels.
What the site owner is looking for is 'BackLinks" not necessarily sales. Though sales are nice. Search Engines are looking for relevant content for there users. Once they find good content they will follow it and the pages move up in rank. You want and make sure the speed that content is added looks to be natural to the SE's. If the search engines see content being added to fast they will think it is generated and it will take longer to rank. Add one article at a time. 2 or 3 a week for a blog.
