    For instance, you could create a geo targeted Adwords campaign. Once you figured out the best converting keywords, you can build optimized pages for those keywords and start link building campaigns to get good rankings. You'll find tons of information how to do that on BHW.

    Exactly what peter2002 said. Depending on if you have a budget or not, of course.

    Start with pay per click (adwords), find out what keywords convert and deliver a ROI, and then optimize your pages/site for those keywords. I'd suggest you read up on both on and off site optimization, because everything needs to be optimized. Names of files and pictures, URL's etc.

    For off site, without going into much detail, get backlinks from sites that are both relevant and have a high PR. That's better than to just spam post and get 2000 backlinks from blogs/directories that aren't relevant at all.

    Click on the White Hat SEO subforum and read the sticky threads there. Then browse through the other threads in that subforum to get some additional tips and tricks.

    After you have a fairly good understanding of what White Hat SEO is about and have applied at least the basics, go to the Black Hat SEO forum and look through the sticky threads there. Then browse through the other threads in that subforum to get additional ideas.

    You'll probably want to do just about everything suggested in the White Hat SEO forum, because that will establish an SEO foundation that google and the other SEs will be happy with. Then be selective about the techniques you find in the Black Hat SEO forum so you can add techniques that you can apply to get a little more advantage, but without risking to much chance of having negative results.

    For most long term realworld businesses, you should really concentrate on long term White Hat tactics because your business is a long term project. Only do massive blackhat strategies for websites that aren't planned to be long term projects.
