Often times a website is available via the http://www.domain.com and http://domain.com formats. This is called a “canonical domain” and is easy to fix as long as you are aware the problem exists.

Although canonical domains do not cause a problem with your website, it is considered by the search engine robots as having two separate websites with the same content on two separate domains. This must be corrected as it can have a negative affect on your search engine rankings and is something we look for as part of our site and server analysis.

You also want to set-up a proper 404 (see Google Webmaster Tools) and proper 301 redirects. Don't forget to include a privacy page (if you collect e-mail addresses) and an .xml sitemap (again see Google Webmaster Tools).

I think targeting right keywords and using them in anchor text when building backlinks would still be effective for ranking in SERP.

Let's not forget about the most important factor of being in business in the first place, (ROI) Return On Investment.

As you already know (By the information originally posted by the thread starter and other members posts), Link building, Content, image optimizing, on-page optimizing, etc... are the starting factors.

Now lets forget about the search engines for a second since you've already optimized the site & focus on optimizing for viewers. One can sit in the #1 spot of google for a popular term generating 20,000 hits per day, but if the site itself has little interest to the visitor, no conversion takes place.

With that in mind you also need to understand that after years & years of research, the average visitor will make a decision to continue viewing a site or leave within the first 3 seconds of landing on the page. This means that the landing page needs to capture interest immediately to achieve retention.

Retention is the threshold for ROI. The longer you retain their interest, the more they start to trust you, & the more comfortable they become in the conversion process. This is where a stimulating design, complementing theme graphics/images, & "call to action" phrases come into play to complement the site content already drawing the traffic from your seo efforts.

The main key is targeted traffic visiting, meaning the people coming to your landing page already want what you have to offer & aren't just random hits (Something you already achieved Via your organic seo efforts & strategically targeted marketing / advertising campaigns). A strategically targeted campaign makes all the difference in the world.

I could go on & on, but I'm sure you get the idea & direction I'm going with this.

Hope that helps, good luck!

There are lots of ideas when it comes to link building, but my favorite part is communicating with other bloggers or webmaster to ask for a link back or to write a guest blog post on their website so that we can place our link on their site. It is not tricky as other SEO strategies and all we need is good convincing power

The answer lies in quality content. If your content is unique, lucrative and engaging, it will help you attract the search engines and readers as well.
