There are a lot of (suggested) techniques in getting your website ranked high on the major search engines. By far, one of the most effective methods is to create “backlinks” to your website.
Backlinks (or back-links) are incoming links to a website or web page. In the search engine optimization (SEO) world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page (though other measures, such as PageRank, are likely to be more important). Outside of SEO, the backlinks of a webpage may be of significant personal, cultural or semantic interest: they indicate who is paying attention to that page.
Here is a great resource in building said backlinks:
SocialMarker is a new bookmarking tool that lets you use a singular service for submitting links to more than 2 dozen social bookmarking sites. This is a Firefox plug-in, so you’ll need to be using a Firefox browser in order to enjoy the benefits of SocialMarker.
Once you’ve added the SocialMarker submission button to your browser toolbar, you can use it whenever you come across something you’d like to bookmark online. Highlight some text on your desired webpage, and click the SocialMarker button. You’ll be taken to SocialMarker’s site, and there you can edit the description, tags, title, URL, etc. Choose which social bookmarking sites you’d like to send this too (they’re all chosen by default, so really you’ll need to de-select the ones you don’t want it sent to), and hit submit. There are also options for you to select the Best, or only the News social bookmarking sites.
Success Story Example:
