Hey SS19, SEO is a very long drawn out process and it takes a minimum of 4-6 months to get your website on the first page of search engines if it were optimised by an expert team of SEOs. As far as I know it's based on:
1. Content of your website
2. Meta tags (tags within your web page code which search engines can read)
3. Site Map (A one page linked listing of all pages on your website)
3. Link Building ( exchanging links with other popular websites)
4. Non-Content Optimization (lots of techniques where you exploit every search engines pare rank technique)
Constantly keep updating your website. Content is still king. Not just update it, keep it relevant.
Link building works in an interesting way. If some popular websites link to your website telling "this site kicks ass", your website may go up the search engine rankings.
Optimizing for search engine ranking works for a brief period, but whenever the search engines change their algos, your rankings can dip again. And not just that, every search engine does its ranking differently. So your website can be optimized for google but would rank low on yahoo or MSN. Search engines are always defining newer parameters to rank pages to try and keep the search engine as relevant as possible to the end user.
If you do a search I'm sure you will find great tips and techniques online. But SEO at the highest level is still a specialists job. Hope that helped.

in your content, include something/words like:
#1, most amazing, world reknown/famous and guaranteed best-selling, best of the best, earth-shattering, website of the century/milineum by ss19flyover... :D

The number one search term is still the three letter s-word (I am not going to type it out in full so that Google bot won't accidentally think that this is a s-talk forum) :D
In another words, if you really want to attract irrelevant attraction to your website... you know what to do :P
Anyway, sticking back to the real topic, it is important to include as much description and terms regarding your website in the <meta> tag. Most search bots rely on these in order to index the websites. Google ranks website based on "connectivity" and "linking" between other websites. This means that the more websites link to yours, the higher the chance you can get your website to be in the top 20 (or whatever).
I hope this helps. :)

Well, I know somebody who wanted to get his website first in Yahoo and Google, and he has done it. He did it part-time, he is not an IT graduate and in 2 months I think. He studied the methods used by Google and Yahoo, and he designed his web site to suit their engines. I really admire his determination.
Go search 'wedding planner malaysia'. His website is first on both search engines. I just checked.
Of course, people searching have to use those key words. But if you were looking for a wedding planner in Malaysia, wouldn't you?
