I've been working on seo for my website for the past couple months, hence been reading a lot here :) .

Achieved some pretty decent results from google. though not yahoo and msn.

did the URL rewriting , optimized meta tags ,images name-titles-and alt,headings tags, submitted the site map , got loads of pages indexed ,built content,a few backlinks. Got PR1 for a couple of competitive keywords , page 1 to page 3 for loads of relevant keywords.

whats left to be done{and more concerning} :
controlling the landing page for keywords.
Understanding exactly how a search engine will take a specific keyword query to a specific page .
of course getting PR1 for more keywords :) .
getting backlinks --> why would a PR1 site link to me ?

well seo is part art ,part science.

How to go about with learning the science part ? cos i'm the one in the startup who took the seo part , wary of so called " training seo institutes" , and outsourcing a big No.

ne help , suggestions, or advice would be of great value .

You need to do more reading. This forum and other well known established sites that write on SEO as a minimum.

By the way, you are mixing PageRank (PR) with the ranking of the page for a keyword, i.e. your page in SERPs.

SEO is a very wide and complicated process, which never ends. New tricks and techniques keeps on developing, so you always need to be active in order to become an SEO Exoert. After getting a complete knowledge of SEO and its techniques, the only thing which is remaining is that understanding the Search Engine and its algorithms. If you got success in this, then no one can match you and your knowledge.

Worry less about the PR of the page.
Worry more about whether the link would be useful to the people visiting the other site.
