Another way to think of it is, how your site earns traffic and gets to the top search results because of it's content, how frequently it's updated, and the quality sites that link to your site (quality backlinks).
An important thing to keep in mind is that each search engine has it's own standards for "good" SEO, and each search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc) can change those standards at any time, so try to keep up to date as much as possible or just keep your site filled with quality content.
