I hope you've checked out our SEO lessons as well. We see a lot of affiliates rushing out and spending hundreds of dollars on software when they haven't even mastered the basics of on-page optimization. It's not *as* important as off-page, but it lays the solid foundation for your off-page efforts.
Also make sure you've done your market research and you know which search terms you're going to be targeting. Then use Traffic Travis to peek at your competition and see what you're up against. Check out the backlinks of your competitors, as well as their other vital stats. Sometimes it's easier to go around the back way and target a less popular search term before hitting the competitive ones head-on.
Also be sure to run reports on your keywords regularly in Traffic Travis so you can see your site moving up the results pages... it's very satisfying ;)
