    I have recently set up a site and I am planning to do SEO for it. The primary keyword is ‘free casino online’. When I searched my site for this keyword, it was seen on the 2nd page. I want to improve the position of my site for the main keyword phrase. I am aiming at the top position. However, I do not know what the related SEO services available are. If you can help me with the same, it would be great. I also want to know about a reliable SEO service provider who can do all the SEO work to increase site’s ranking.

    Make a signature of your website & start Forum posting & Blog commenting for it & after that start social bookmarking.These are the primary steps for SEO.

    If you have recently set up this site, as you state, and you already are on Google's page 2 , I don't think you need to hire a SEO service provider to bring it to page 1, unless of course you don't want to spend your time on it.

    I think that to get to the top position all you need is to build quality backlinks to your site ( and you can outsource it if you want).

    Would you mind disclosing the URL so that we could have a look at it and perhaps come up with some other suggestions?

    Getting to page 2 for such a competitive keyword is a good achievement. To get to page one, keep building links to your site using "free casino online" as your anchor text. Do you use that key phrase in the text of your homepage? Have you added it to your title tag?

    I agree with both junglekid and Fergal that getting to page 2 is a good achievement, but I disagree with junglekid that you do not need an SEO provider to help.
    The owner of our company has compared getting ranked on Google to an American football game. If you are on your competitor's 40 yard line, it doesn't matter if you get 10 yards - all you get is a chance to get 10 more. The closer you get to the competitor's 10 yard line, the harder the defense is going to work to keep you from getting a touchdown.
    To put it in SE terms, there are only 10 positions on page 1. The people who are already there spent a lot of time and money to gt there, and they are going to fight as hard as they can to stay there. Therefore, it is going to be much harder to rise from page 2 then it was to get to page 2.
    Regarding your search for a reliable SEO provider, I don't want to use this post to advertise myself, so I sent you a PM. I eagerly await your reply.

    Great analogy Joseph, I've had some keywords hovering around the 11 - 14 positions in Google and I can relate to the fact that it's difficult to nudge them up to the first page.
