I find SEO a little bit like trying to understand a cloud. There is some stuff there but when I try to understand it I try to wrap my hands around it, nothing is there. So I just thought I would ask those with a better understanding then mine, what are the 5 most important SEO things you can do on a site?

yep.. that's what we need to focus on a site for SEO. However, we also need to care about proper site navigation, internal linking, W3C validation, etc...

The most important thing in your SEO process should be thinking from the visitor point of view and creating and optimizing your site for visitors and not for search engines.
If you have proper content related to the niche' of your site and the meta tags also have the relevance, then it will have a great effect on your site.
Also, SEO requires you to have a lot of patience, so you should refrain from any short-cuts as you can have your site penalized for that.

For off-page SEO:

-directory submission
-keywords as signatures in forums
-article submission and PR if possible.
-social networking
-blog commenting on other relevant blogs

on page SEO should always be done, and it makes off-page SEO much more effective. make sure your title tags describe what your page or website is about, and make sure those same terms have a definite presence throughout the copy of the webpage.

header tags are also a plus. hope this helps.

oh yes!! all the mentioned tips are ok,but what is important as well ,,,is the promotion of the site,though I think if the service and product which is offered by the site is good, the site itself will have success

Another very important matter to pay attention to is the age of the websites.

Even if you do everything in a professional way, add hundreds of EDU and PR 7 links to your website, write unique contents, you will need to wait for some time because you already are competing against sites which have been at the top for years.

I totally agree but its just one side of optimizing your site.. The 5 lists you have mentioned only tackles about On-Page Optimization.. Doing that On-Page isn't enough, you have to participate in doing Off-Page Optimization.. This tackles about building links.. You need to build links in order to get higher rankings, higher PR and generate more traffic on your site..

Ahh, finally, someone mentioned RESEARCH!!!!

Regardless of how well you implement SEO, there's no point in doing so if you have no traffic is there?

1. marketplace research
2. keyword research
3. content/article writing and submission both onsite, and offsite
4. link building (works in with reciprocal linking and backlinks
5. correct use of meta tag and html markup
6. correct implementation and usage of available tools and information provided by search engines that are there to HELP you! - use them!

Theres probably more, but these should get you heading in the right direction.

HTH
