    Long story short, I'm a hard worker who's moving to a place where "real world jobs" are very competitive. I figure since it will be hard for me to get a full time well paying job there, I should put my work ethic to good use, and decided to try my hand at IM, which I've had my eyes on for a long time.

    My Question: Sorry if this is painfully noobish, but I'm having trouble grasping how google finds you. I understand that backlinks from high PR sites give you better results, but I have no idea how to optimize a keyword. Lets say my niche was ebooks on basket weaving, and I used Market Samuari or MicroNicheFinder to determine that i would do great if I targeted the keyword "basket weaving lessons." Do I just make sure that "basket weaving lessons" is included somewhere in the title and body of my page? What if I have a keyword that doesnt fit into a sentance naturally, ie "ebook basket weaving"? Would google still show me when people searched ebook basket weaving if my page contained "______ our ebook on basket weaving"?

    All help is much appreciated in advance :)

    Just a quick tip that might help with those keywordss that don't fit naturally.

    Google doesn't recognize (or at least pay attention to) punctuation.

    So you can sneak your keyword in like so.

    ebook basket weaving (hard to fit in)
    (keyword)
    Thank you for your interest in our ebook. Basket weaving when done properly can be a fun and enjoyable task.



    Hope this helps.
