Title will be displayed as a link in search engine results, so you need to attract the visitors via writing a attractive title. Also, you need to add your website name in title and a few important keywords. All webpages should have different title.
2. Add description via META tag
Beside title, search engines are interested in META tag too. This is a description to describe the contents. And also you can add some keywords into META tag. But now META tag seems not really useful, but SEOers often do this.
3. Add your keywords in bold font
Search engines attach importance to bold font text, because text in bold means important content. So make sure add a few keywords in bold font, and try not to use image as title. Remember, add a few<> tags will be helpful, but add a lot of them will be dangerous.
4. Make sure your keywords in the first paragraph
Search engines hope that they can find a few keywords in first paragraph. Google loves the webpage which is in every 100 words there are 1.5-2 keywords. Other place you can put your keywords in to ALT or COMMENT properties.
5. Navigator must be clear enough
6. Create special pages for a few important keywords
SEOers do not recommend to use bridge pages to cheat search engines, these pages will let the whole website be in danger. But you can create some special pages include different keywords or key phrases. For example, you do not need to introduce all your services or products in one page, you can use many pages to do this, so that every page can have its independent keyword.
7. Submit your website to search engines
It seems not very useful at present, but if your website is really good and search engines have not capture your website, you should submit by yourself. Remember, do not use any software to submit your website automatically, that is unhelpful and dangerous.

Make sure your website is in Open Directory, this directory provides contents to main search engines. It is very important for Google.
10. Be professional
Make sure your website has a focus, like Education or Finance, because professional website can have a lot of fixed visitors and target customers. You can submit your website to professional Yellow-Page system, that is useful sometimes.
11. Request the links exchange
You can ask some similar websites for exchanging links. The best choice should not be the big traffic websites because the webmasters will ignore you, you can consider about smaller websites. Friend-link should be an independent page. Remember, notice the quality of target website.
12. Write articles with your website address
You can write some free articles and publish them to professional news websites, you can use short description about your website to promote it. You can get a lot of links if you can successfully do that.
13. Print your website address on Name Cards, Printings, Books, etc
That’s a traditional way but it is really useful sometimes, make sure your domain is easy to remember.
14. Promote via traditional media advertisements
Traditional media should not be given up. Both newspapers and magazines are really helpful for you if you can show your website address on them. Please put your website as add-ons, to remind the reader to find more at your website. Professional magazines are even better, because the target readers are fixed.
15. Provide free services
Everyone love free services. Free services can help you to attract more people to visit your website.
