I would take a step back.

Look at the page seo and usability first. For example:

Is the page designed and written in a search engine friendly way?
Have you carried out extensive keyword research and then implemented appropriate meta-tags and incorporated into content appropriately.
Have you got tip top, unique content?
Have you submitted your site to webmaster tools?
Have you uploaded a sitemap?
Do visitors interact with the content they find.

Nail all the on page stuff first before you move on to the off page stuff.

Good luck!

I agree with stoffa , I would also do a competitor analysis and look at the usability of your webstore. Good user experience = good seo.

The better your webstore is the more often your visitors are likely to return but also share your website both online/offline.

Hi Kulesz,
Good luck with the business. I also have an online shop I started about three years ago and if you are anything like me you are about to embark on a steep learning curve. You tend to learn something new everyday. I completely agree with the other posts by stoffa and paddym and begin at the roots of the site.
Webmaster tools and sitemap 100% vital.
Then start using google keyword tool to research what search terms people are using to find products which you sell.
Then ensure all pages on your site are title tagged. For example if one of the things you are selling is an umbrella and your target market is Ireland this might be "Buy umbrellas online Ireland"
Then there is the meta description tag (maximum characters should be 140) and in this instance it might be something like. "This stylish large red umbrella will keep help you stay dry from the rain in Ireland"
Then there is keywords (some people say google ignores them now but I'm not 100% convinced)
In this instance your keywords might be umbrellas ireland, buy umbrellas online, buy large umbrella, red umbrella.
Move on to the next page and do the same thing!

We use different steps for getting back links. Such as, directory submission, article submission, forum posting etc. In case of directory submission, you must fill a form. and after that, you must found a message, such as: waiting for approval. After some time, you check your mail box and just accept that mail, which is relevant with your directory. In this way, you can understand, your link is approve. After day by day, when you link to check your back link, then just use this, link:site url. If you have seen, the number of back links is increasing day by day, then you think, your working style is good.
SeoDataService helped me to improve my rankings dramatically.

this is great info lads and exactly what ive been looking for

ive had the very same problen with my site (Ireland) Home of the best Irish country music & Irish traditional Music CD's & DVD's

im on page one of google for my keyword in ireland but page sixteen! in the UK
this is a real pain as my site is kind of targeted to both area's

Im guessing if you buy a version of your domain name, it will have no effect of the ranking?
I think there's something you can do with redirects that might help? I don't know for sure but someone might be able to advise...
