    Make sure you have the correct keywords embedded in your text. That's all I did and I am in the top 10 for almost every search result I want on yahoo and google.

    It can take 30-90 days for a search engine to crawl and reindex your site...

    Spend time reading what Kiril linked. It is GOOD stuff.

    I agree. It could take a month or two before you see any noticeable difference in rankings.

    Googlebots crawl every 40-70 days (there is a debate on the exact amount of time and they keep quiet). You can study free SEO materials on SEOMOZ.org or on TopRankTactics.com. Good luck and I hope you have time because content (copywrite) and backlinks are both hard to get and both are what you want.

    What do you mean by "content (copywrite)"?

    I think that depends on the site. I have posted stuff on this site, just to find it on google less than an hour later. Perhaps chance, perhaps not.
