As someone who is only able to pug raids since my guild isnt there yet, I would suggest that the most important thing is to 1) know people on your server, and 2) make sure that you are geared as you can be. Knowing people means actually reading trade chat ( I know! yuk! ) and noting the people who are there all the time looking for people. Whisper them and let them know that you are dps and let you know if they have an opening. And them to your friends list. I have people check with me regularly (I'm a mage) to see if I am available. I have also made sure that my gear is as good as it could be pre-raiding. Knowing your stats is key! This cant be stressed enough. Enchants and Gems (more importantly the right ones) make the world of difference

One other important thing is geting a decent reputation.Now I havent really tried to pug raids since it just seems too much of a hassle to only end up disbanding after 1 wipe but back in wrath, I pugged every week. in the begining, geting in a group was difficult as dps but after that I only had to advertise that I was looking for a group or whisper to whoever was forming a group(out of the few raid leaders I trusted to pug) and I'd be accepted without having to show achievements or have my gear inspected. They knew I was a decent dps, polite and could handle a few wipes. The worst thing you can do is get yourself a bad reputation or be in one of those guilds who just refuses to speak english and is constantly spamming raid\trade chat in whatever language they speak. Then people wont really be willing to give you a chance.
