I started a relatively new website and have used mostly pay-per-click to generate sales. I want to start generating more organic traffic through SEO. What methods are effective and which ones are to be avoided.

Any advice would be appreicated. Thanks.

    SEO gets pretty in depth on what technique's you can utilize. Its more like, you have 250 different practices you can do, and most of them are weighted about the same as others when it comes to how beneficial it will be in ranking your site. Often people are miss led into doing lets say 5 types of SEO practice's and simply ignore the others. those good practices won't counter the bad ones and it will hardly help you. You need to research every aspect in creating a strong SEO website and utilize every technique to get the best performance.

    STAY AWAY FROM OLD SEO INFORMATION

    I recommend finding a blog that gets updated regularly like this one

    These blogs will teach you allot about seo and have tons of information. Search for more blogs as well, follow at least a couple and utilize every bit of information.

    Do a search on White Hat Seo, Black Hat Seo, and Grey Hat Seo.

    Stick to the white hat methods..

    Link baiting is the most effective form of backlinking strategy. Learn to do that well and you'll have all the traffic you ever need hitting your sites.

    Let's see.
    There is article marketing - submitting articles to popular article directories such as articlesbase.com, ezinearticles.com, and goarticles.com (These also increase backlinks, and therefore your position for selected keywords).
    There is video marketing - you can upload videos to youtube, dailymotion, and other sites. You can even use tubbemogul to spread your video faster.
    There are press releases, which you can write about a certain product or hot topic on your site that you can submit for lots of traffic to press release sites that people read.

    You can also, of course, buildbacklinks and rank your sites for particular keywords on google. This will require high-quality, and IP-diversified urls with the anchor text of your keyword that you wish to rank.

    Good Luck!

    All methods are effective because they help each other to rank the website. It is really good to do simultaneously. Example, today you'll do article,directory,rss,blog submissions and tomorrow start doing social bookmarking, profile link building, forum posting, web 2.0 sites and/or any of the methods you have.

    Hope it could help you.

    Cheers

    Off-Page optimization is one of the most effective SEO technique.
    There are 4 effective ways to build links to your website and get you better SEO rankings.

    1. Article Submissions

    Write unique articles on a topic relevant to your website and submit them to do-follow with high PR article directories like ezinearticles, goarticle, etc. Most of the article directories allow you to put 1 to 4 links to your website either in body of the article or in resource box or both.

    An extra bonus of the article submissions, you will get some traffic form the article and if it is good article it will be republished on more websites and blogs etc.

    2. News Release Submissions

    Write a good press release(News) about your company or product(services) and submit it into high page rank press release directories like prweb, freepressrelease etc. It helps to get more traffic to your website.

    3. Social Bookmarking

    Bookmark your website in the select list of exclusive do-follow social bookmarking websites. Helps build high quality do-follow backlinks to your website.

    4. Document Sharing

    Sharing your documents(Articles, Press Releases, presentation) to popular online document sharing sites like scribd, docstoc, slidshare etc. You can also use the old articles that were already submitted to the article directories too. The main advantage of distributing your articles and PRs to the document sharing sites is that the description of the article will get crawled by Google within 2 days

      Why would you ignore a perfectly valid TLD like .info and equate it to a sub-domain like .co.cc? You realize they having absolutely nothing in common right?

      I have yet to see a see a shred of evidence that G de-values a .info any more than it would a .net. While .co.cc sites were all de-indexed, so there is no dispute as to how worthless those are.

      If you can provide something to backup your comment about .info TLDs from any authoritative source, I'd love to see it.

    For organic traffic, you need to write quality and fresh content to your site. If you have not added a blog to your site, i will suggest to do it right now. Google needs not only unique content but also fresh content. Also too many advice is given on onpage seo, you must follow them and you will see huge increase in your organic traffic. Give fresh content to Google, Google will return you with fresh visitors.

    I would say Image Tagging is definitely key in SEO. It wasn't mentioned here, but is definitely crucial.

    I would agree though with directory submission
    bookmarking
    blog comments
    forum posting
    article submission
