Words – Every word you use on your site matters. Write content/copy on your site for humans, not for search engines. The content has to relate back to what your site is about and don’t even think about keyword stuffing. If you want to check out which keywords are best for your site, use both the Google Keyword Tool and the Bing Keyword Tool.
Tags – As in Meta tags. There are special tags you can add to the head section of your webpages which is read by search engines. According to Google, “Meta tags are a great way for webmasters to provide search engines with information about their sites. Meta tags can be used to provide information to all sorts of clients, and each system processes only the meta tags they understand and ignores the rest.”

Reputation – Your site can earn a good reputation by producing relevant content often, and having good incoming links from other reputable sites.

Searchmetrics aggregated billions of data points looking for the answer to one basic the question: “Which factors are relevant for a good ranking in Google search results”?"
