    yeah, where do you get your DB? you just scrape them?

    and how do you do your SEO on the song pages?

    i've seen most lyrics sites use alot of headers

    mainly <h1> at very top of the page

    with alot of <STRONG>'s

    but last time i tried that i got penalized for over optimizing, just wondering how these guys do it

    I scrape it from other sites using a simple php script I wrote. Regex is your friend.

    For SEO, I change it up from time to time depending on SERPs, but generally speaking you want to have headings surrounding things you want to emphasize .. in a lyric site being the artist name & song name. Don't make your site look like spam though with 11ty headings
