Optimize the pages with targeted keywords and use Keyword Analyzer to check keyword ranks.
Don’t create unnecessary pages and content.
Keep updating the content to avoid duplication as some one might copy content from your site.

Create your site’s sitemap on regular intervals and submit them to various search engines.
Avoid using various tools like Ajax, Flash and Non SEO friendly technologies for important parts of your pages.

Keep pagination on the category pages seriously and make sure most important/best selling products appear on first page.

Link directly from your homepage to your best selling products.
Don’t create multiple landing pages for minor product differences (color, size etc).
Remove all the dangling and broken links.
Use targeted anchor texts by using the keywords that appear on the title of each product/category.
Use text hyperlinks to link between your products and categories.
Build links that point directly to the product landing pages and don’t focus all your link building efforts only on homepage.

Use rating and reviews.
Create events and contest to engage the customers.
Imbibe blogs on the site so users can interact with you and within them.
Plan email marketing campaigns and keep in touch with users.
check the feasibility of the affiliate program if you can.
Avoid spammy methods to promote the site.

Choose the domain name wisely. A .com or a country specific TLD can really make the difference.
Host the site on reliable sources.
Make the site mobile friendly.
Use cross sell & up sell to boost the sales.
It is good to have multiple payment options like Credit card, debit card, cash cards, Net banking.
