But what are some specific tactics/methods that you can do on your own for SEO/M?
I would say learn the basics then get your on-page optimisation sorted (Good start [google.com...] and then start thinking about how you can actively seek links. There is lots of information out there on SEO and the forums here are very active.
I would say though that SEO can feel a bit never ending - no one ever knows exactly how the search engines work but everyone has their own opinion. Try not to get sucked in too deep - just follow the guidelines and make incremental changes and be patient.
The one thing everyone agrees on is that links are important so I would recommend checking out the Link Development forum [webmasterworld.com...]
