    I currently am getting around 250 hits a day. I only have 2 back links. I don't know anything about tags but I think that might help. My website is setup using wordpress.

    Building high quality links and writing SEO friendly content is key. The phrase "content is king" is more than true in SEO. Focus on doing keyword research to see what things you want to rank for, write content about each of these keywords. Then, once you have a good amount of content, focusing on building anchor texts to these pages. But remember, build a wide range of diverse links.

    Numbuh,

    You have come to the right place. I would first concentrate your efforts on your website. Develop a list of target keywords for your website. Choose the keywords and their variations that you want to include so searchers can find your content. Use a free tool like the Google Keyword tool to generate possible ideas. You will also want to use some type of keyword research method to determine which words are the best to use (words/phrases with moderate competition that work well with your copy).

    I would also recommend starting a blog. Wordpress is a great platform for blogging so you are all set there. Come up with original content and post at least twice per week. Optimize your blog posts by using keywords and linking keyword phrases to other parts of your site. I recommend either Yoast or SEO Ultimate Wordpress plugins which make optimizing a Wordpress site a snap.

    You will want to include these keywords in the content on your website as well as the architecture of the website (meta tags, alt tags, and titles). Choose keywords that are important to the product or service you are marketing and build a page around each one. There are certain characteristics as to how you do this such as keyword density in website copy and the number of relevant keywords you should include in meta tags.

    Another thing you can do to start is learn about what white hat and black hat SEO are and their differences. Depending on what you want to accomplish, there are some tactics that may not be good to practice.

    The tasks mentioned above are known as internal or onsite SEO and are related to website architecture that you have direct control over. Another aspect is offsite SEO which can include creation of external web properties that contain target keywords, article marketing and syndication, optimization of video, document sharing, link building and a number of other tactics.

    Here are some links to the resources I mentioned above,

    Google's keyword tool,

    This post explains the results to searches keyword research method,

    Here is one on keyword density,

    SEO wordpress plugins

    I saw someone on ebay selling 7,000 back links for $14 and I looked at their feed back and 10+ people said it was good. Should I buy this persons service? It seems legit.

    You can consider get someone write up a press release, then distribute it to sites like google news and etc.
    This is a guarantee long term strategy that works.

    Stay well away from these kind of services, as after recent google updates they will penalize your website.
    Stick with organic seo, comment on relevant blogs or have a look at some of the white hat services here at BHW.
    Spend some time making 20-50 very good quality web 2.0s and use services like the ebay one to them rather than directly to your money site
