This has a great overview with some practical steps to take.
I have used its techniques with good success.  All of the mentioned techniques are white hat.

Yes, the poster is asking for a personal recommendation.  I know the guy who runs http://www.seologs.com -- it's a pretty good blog for SEO information.
