blue jeans are great: about a few hundred words about blue jeans - you can always break the page up with a
<h2>the history of blue jeans</h2>
and a couple of links to well ranked sites, such as this <a href="http://www.anothersite.com/" title="the making of blue jeans">blue jeans</a> website has some great information about how to make jeans.
mentioning the phase blue jeans a few times but not making your content unreadable - a <b>blue jeans</b> wouldn't hurt.
get some links pointing at the page that say blue jeans i.e. the link would be <a href="http://www.yousite.com/blue-jeans.html title="blue jeans information">Blue Jeans</a>
I'm sure there's plenty more that you'll learn on these forums but that seems like at least a starter - and as people have already mentioned read through bretts 26 steps [searchengineworld.com...]
Hope thats of some help - and if some more experienced SEO'ers want to correct me that's fine ;)
