The best way is to make sure your meta tags are good, and try to build links with other sites.(other sites belonging to other people, where there will be cross traffic). se use this to crawl across the web

Just add a few words to Billystyx solution

The part of the meta tag is as follows

<META name="description" content="Everything you wanted to know about stamps, from prices to history.">
<META name="keywords" content="stamps, stamp collecting, stamp history, prices, stamps for sale">

This way which allow search engine like google to locate your web easier

By the way, try to find some so called Webring, so that you can get ranked
