Instead of just running a photoblog, add descriptions to every photo so google has something that it can read.
Obey the quality guidelines. Don’t try hiding text in your site so it looks fine to readers but says something totally different to the google spiders.
Just say not to duplicate contest. It’s occasionally fine to take a direct quote from wikipedia but make sure that you add in plenty of your own thoughts. It’s better to just paraphrase it in your own words because google won’t index content that is exactly the same.

If your site is just filled with affiliate links it may be considered useless spam & you will have a difficult time building a readership.

Play in the sandbox. The google sandbox may or may not be a myth. It’s thought that google doesn’t rank new domains as high as it does old domains. It does this so people can’t just create a lot of new sites linking to one main site & drive up the ranking of that site by having a lot of inbound links. If your new site isn’t doing well, just keep creating fantastic content.
