Get writing new pages full of great info and concentrate each page on a search term your customers will be typing in.

3. Get Tweeting and Facebooking
Post links to your homepage and newly created pages using Twitter and Facebook. Ask friends, colleagues and customers to do the same for you. It creates backlinks and Google loves a social buzz about something.
