Keyword density is one of the most helpful SEO (Search Engine Optimization) strategies because search engines like to give Internet users with the most appropriate websites for particular search terms. Let those relevant websites be yours!

SEO is not only determined by keywords, but also usage of backlinks (also called inbound links) to other high ranking webpages, meta tagging (that is keyword-rich) headers (titles for posts and sub-headings within them), steady activity on your site with articles, video input and so on.
Here’s a hint: accelerate the process of search engines finding you by registering with their directories – even the minor ones.
Last but not least, another resource for traffic is the use of social media: appropriate forums and platforms such as Yahoo Answers; popular social tools such as Facebook & Twitter and social bookmarking sites such as Digg, Technorati and Delicious. Becoming a helpful partaker will win people’s trust and attract them to your site.
These are only some of the internet marketing strategies that will launch you to a page one ranking, and very fast.
