    Link building is one of the best ways to improve your keyword ranking Hansh and Sahil has pointed you to a thread with great information on that.

    It's also important to include the relevant keywords in the content of your site. However, don't over do it, to the extent that it looks unnatural and the text is not comfortable to read - this is known as keyword stuffing and the search engines can penalise you for it.

    Search engines will also give greater priority to text that is included within certain HTML tags, on your site. Examples include the header tags (H1, H2, etc) and strong tags <strong>. Again don't over do this or make it look unnatural on your web page.

    Hopefully this will help you a little and please post back if you have any further questions.

    All you have mentioned are the backlink methods. To improve ranking positions, you should write unique and keyword enriched content on the website. Search engines are hungry for fresh content and index the pages with content more that those without content.
    Secondly, you can try to target your keywords properly in all the SEO elements such as Meta tags, image tags, title tags etc. on the page. This way, search engines will understand what is the theme of your webpage and tag your content with the related keyword.
    Then, You can do the website promotion by the methods you have mentioned above.
    Believe me, If you have right set of keywords, good content, quality backlinks and you will be the winner.

    When working to improve your keyword ranking, another important factor is to make sure you select the correct keywords for your site. Google's Keyword Tool can be very helpful with that.

    John Peterr & gtt thanks for your replies, but can you please give a little more info. Advising someone to do on or off the page optimization without giving any additional information, doesn't really help them, does it?

Also try blog commenting.

    To improve the keyword ranking in your website just do not target very competitive keywords, choose correct keywords then build quality backlinks.And also use main keywords in forum posting.

    I would personally suggest you to give away some thing really handy and resourceful to your customers. Something that they would like and appreciate as well. If you live up to that, then you don't need to promote your services as such. people will automatically spread the word. that's the power of social media.
