    Hi Kharim,

    Excellent tips here.

    I leave comments on blogs, visit forums, use social networking and bookmarking sites, and write guest posts. I would say to be all over the place, meaning to expand your presence through as many channels as possible.

    The keyword tool you shared looks very helpful. Thanks!
