If you want to be lazy, high quality content is the way to go. If you have good content, over time, people will find it one way or another.

If you want to be diligent, do blog marketing, forum marketing, etc.

I think you should get many good back links so your site will have a good ranking to search engines...

There are hundred + factors which need to be focused when we talk about SERP listing.

Regarding my personal experience I would like to say that one should focus both:

-On-Page Optimization
-Off Page Optimization (Quality Inbound Links for the better results)

1. Post well-written content that appeals to the long-tail. That means content that is specifically written with your product (and hopefully your business) in mind. Google favors the long tail.

2. Time and persistent effort--it won't happen over night.

3. Build backlinks with social media sites and by posting on forums and other people's blogs.

4. Set up a blog that serves your niche, not your business. I write web content. But rather than write about writing--and having already written small business articles for various sites--I set up a small business information blog designed specifically to appeal to my niche. I have another one on a different topic in the works.

5. After you establish your creds, guest blog. (I'm available!) On Copyblogger, Jonathan Morrow has a good post on this subject that contains links to even more good information. See the latest issue of www.copyblogger.com.

6. Following Jon's advice--which I agree with--write less often, but produce quality content. He--and others like him--is his own good example. I never see anything on Copyblogger, Problogger, or the other very successful sites that is sloppy or thin, and the posts are worthwhile and easy to understand.

Read the comments following the current article that I'm talking about: The Three-Step Guide to Getting More Traffic by Writing Less. Some well-known and top-notch bloggers chime in to say that he is right. Interesting and helpful stuff.

You can improve your ranking of SERP by using your keywords as a anchor in the dofollow blogs and forums. and by doing blogging etc

Make sure you link across your blog so all previous posts still have some links and will be able to be read.

Having intra-site Optimization is something I have been lazy about but am only just starting to improve, after spending months in off site.

Funny how you go all over the world and the answer is often in your own backyard....

The only thing that can improve SERPs is the quality back links and back links can be increased by variety of ways like performing OFFpage techniques such as :
Directory submission
Article submission
PR submission
Blog commenting
Forum commenting

Holy Quran and seo

Also, keep in mind, search engines determine the relevancy of a page to the search term. So putting the terms in your meta description and title, then writing content that is not relevant to those titles and descriptions will get you nowhere... and fast.

Each page of your site should be targeted to 5-10 keywords and/or phrases that are (generally) related. That way you will have individual pages ranking for different key word searched.

Hope this helps!
MRchamps no one could give you a better answer. The only thing I could add to it is if you target longer tailed keywords and provide your user's with relevant content or information that keeps them there, eventually you will naturally rank for shorter keywords naturally doing anything special to rank for them.

At least that is how my sites have been working out

Meta tags and anchor text are two most important techniques, try DoFollow blog commenting and forum posting (signature). Other than this Content can play an important role, uniqueness and quality are two most important factor in content writing. Update your blog in an regular basis, use ping services to increase crawling rate...
