There are some important steps in doing the SEO of your website.

Don't Forget your Meta Tags. Meta tags are very important, be sure to add the title, description and keywords tag. Make the Title precise, make sure that the keyword that you want to target exists on your title tag and keywords.

Don't overdo your keywords, Search engines are intelligent now, if they see that your page is clogged with Keywords, they it will not index it.

Make sure to use H1 tag, enclose your main keyword in an tag, search engine treats H1 tag as one of the important content within a page.

Emphasize on your keywords, within the content, make sure that you emphasize (bold or italics) your keywords at least 3 to 4 times. Don't overdo emphasis also.

Link Building, start building your link partners, find websites that have a high page rank and are willing to exchange links with you. Ask the web master of the website that you are linking with to use your keywords when linking to your website. Note that Search engine treats incoming links to your website as a vote. So the higher number of votes the better.
