Search engines send out programs that 'crawl' the internet, examine websites and rank them in their database. The higher the ranking the better!
Some key points to think about:
- add 'meta tag' keywords within the <head> tags of your code. These should list key words and phrases (like cabins, holidays, fishing etc)
- on your Home page include some copy text that includes key words and phrases and repeats them as often as possible
- get as many external sites (like online directories) to link to your site as you can
- ensure that their are hypertext links from evry page in your site to every other. If you use a java script menu (that does not use HTML) include <noscript> tags that generate a hypertext links for those visitors whose browsers are not java enabled. This allows the search engines to follow your site right through all pages
- be patient!
SEO is a big subject and no doubt others will follow this with more advice.

Oh and anthoer thing if you want to advertive like this site does when you type a certon word e.g laptops then go here click here and you can get paid if someone clicks on the link like laptops.

In other words if you click on the word laptops that site will get paid.
