    So I have written a blog post on the blog on our ecommerce store, the keyword is low competition, I have the keyword as a page title, and that's about it for onsite seo. I posted the article last night, pinged it, shared on facebook, tweeted and added to dig, this morning the article is ranking 14th for the chosen keyword.

    What would you guys suggest to send this up a little further?

    Make sure the post is linked to from the most powerful pages on your site - Homepage, Top Ranking Pages.
    Add RSS feed to feedburner, and other high pr syndications.
    Try to create (or fake) more social signals towards it.

    Sounds good. You could submit to hacker news and some subreddits, the social traffic may trigger a positive signal. Other than that, submit it on Google+(yuck).

    You're doing pretty well already, nice work. I would write another couple of blog posts on related topics, and interlink them (only where relevant). Share the new posts like you did the other one. You might also be able to get some very targeted backlinks by manually commenting on recent blog posts from related niches.

    You can create a couple of Web 2.0 properties and link them to your article.
