Submit your startup website to trusted business listing sites and try to gain the maximum exposure among related blogs and forums. There are many communities devoted to starups, by becoming active there you will both create awareness among your potential customers and partners and get backlinks.

As for SEO, this post http://blog.leweb.co/2015/01/5-point.../#.VSOtmculilM can help.

I have gone through the above URL. There are many elements in On Page besides Page titles & URL structure. I completely agree with your perception regarding business listing sites.

I would advise @Debbie to opt for paid advertising such as PPC and Social Media Ads. Your website will not only receive quality traffic but also enquiries which might convert into sales. Among Off Page SEO techniques, Press Release is best for website promotion.

Reputed business directory is always a good place to start your submission efforts, however, it is essential that you try and get your site listed/submitted in google and yahoo approved directories. Make it a point to start a blog and keep it running, update it with fresh and unique content. This will be a good strategy to kickstart your business website.

SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. As such, short term success finds nobody unless you are in a market with no searches. Meaning, you are the only site/content; highly unlikely.

Key steps for SEO.

1. Setup Google Analytics
2. Setup Google Webmaster tools - This will allow you to submit your site.
3. Make sure you have good/helpful content to human visitors
4. Make sure your site is mobile friendly (April 21st Google is taking action to reward sites that are mobile friendly in SERPs).
5. Have a plan to continue to develop your site. This is pretty broad but know what you want to say, who you want to say it too and what value you give them.

For a startup, outside of SEO that I like is to have you find an audience of influential people in your space it is worth reaching out to them via Twitter to have them look at your startup. If it is worthy or they find it interesting, they will tweet, writeup, comment, etc. on it.

Good Luck...

Ryan

Start with keyword research, website design, on-page like meta title, descriptions, heading1 to heading6, robots.txt, sitemap, footer link, canonical tags, 404 page and more.

You can't "list" a site in the search engine results. In other words, it's not up to you whether your site is included, and if so, where. That's up to the search engines themselves.

That said, there are some things you can do to help influence them to decide the way you'd like.

There have already been some good suggestions in this thread.

Make sure your site is user friendly, both for your human visitors and for search engine spiders. Intuitive navigation, descriptive link anchor text, logical site architecture. No coding impediments. It isn't necessary to pass W3C validation, but Google Webmaster Tools may be able to help you determine if your code is up to snuff.

Get to know your customers. Use the same words and phrases in your content that your target audience uses to describe what you're offering. If your startup is offering something new that people might not already be searching for, you're probably going to have to resort to paid advertising. Being listed in search results for a specific term doesn't help if nobody's searching for that in the first place.

Use every available means to let the world know about your startup and what you offer. Do NOT make the mistake of relying on organic search to bring the bulk of your traffic. Develop traffic streams from social media, your blog, referral from other websites, direct (branded) traffic, etc. For safety and long-term stability, your target should be for no more than maybe about a third of your traffic from organic search. (Really.)

You may also want to take a look at the information posted by our own Debra Mastaler and by Eric Ward (aka "Link Moses"), who are both experts at linking strategies.

And ask lots of questions! We're here to help.
