Can't forget Spike!!!!!!
Caryn and I were interviewed by The Sydney Morning Herald back in the day. We thought wow, we've made it!!!!! They asked us about our inner city apartment, what cars we drove, etc etc, and when we went to the local newsagent a few weeks later we were shocked to find that a photo of her and I was on the front page of the paper, with BOLD RED TEXT:
WILD RIDE. THE TEENS THAT RULED DOT COM!
The feature went on to make it out like we were the reason why the dot com crashed, because we charged excessively, and we were the ones rolling around in hot cars and lavish apartments.
FUCKERS. Absolute fuckers.

@BLIND First in the country... did I even say that?! LOL that's 100% missing "some" of the first!!! I had a hand in designing the very first e-commerce mock-up for Telstra. I also had a hand in designing the very first Foxtel Australia web site, Canon (which I used the 'blink tag' would you believe?! Haha!) and a few more.

Can't add much to what Dave has said.
::there are no tricks, if it's a good site it'll get out there::
That kind of sums it up I think. There are a lot of people out there (the vast majority in my experience) that think 'SEO' is a plugin you can just install to make your site 'rank no 1 on Google' but as @Dave has explained, it's about how your site is built/written/updated.
@JustinFox my point about Coke was:
::Although if you search a company name on Google and it doesn't come up first I would be worried.::
Coke is first when you Google 'Coke'. But so are 99% of the world's companies when you **search for their company name**.
::I think SEO only comes into play when you are looking for "cola drink in Melbourne"::
When you don't know a company and you **search for something based on other information** (location, category, etc), that's when SEO is important.
::For the record, Coke is second on the list when you Google that.::
Karma Cola came up first in my Google search using this example.
