    I want the keyword "keyboard cat".

    My domain is keyboardcat.com

    Im sure its highly possible with that domain name alone.

    This is my current meta tags:


    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
        "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <head>
    	<title>Play Him Off Keyboard Cat</title>
    	<meta name="keywords" content="keyboard cat,play him off keyboard cat,keyboard cat playing him off,keyboard cat cnn,youtube keyboard cat, funny keyboard cat,funny cat keyboard,piano cat">
    	<meta name="description" content="Keyboard Cat is the latest internet sensation which has taken the internet by storm. By combining funny internet clips the keyboard cat during the climax of the video. Play him off keyboard cat.">
    	<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="EN">
    	<meta name="robots" content="FOLLOW,INDEX">
    
    and i have the following text as "content".

    I tried following some tips, like having the keywords in the content but im not sure if im doing it correctly. Any tips?

    start over. Make it with wordpress. Then get a shitload of backlinks withyour keyword(s) as the anchor text.

    shouldn't be hard for the keyboard cat keyword

    i want to avoid wordpress because i have it coded so users can add their own videos.

    so backlinks should help for positioning?

    Meta tags haven't made a difference since 1995. What you need to do is go to every forum and social bookmarking site known to man and post about keyboard cat, of course linking to your site. This will not only bring you traffic, but backlinks. By my estimates the meme will lose it's appeal fairly quickly so I would start sooner rather than later.

    yeah. like with my other sites i really dont do much work and it gets up there on google, mainly because it has content.

    This site is video based. Do you think adding some sort of comment system might help?

    It'll bring in more content/text.

    I was also told that backlinks dont help with position, just PR

    backlinks help a lot with position if you use your keywords as anchor text

    Description and commenting system would help a lot. Backlinking, good title, good structure, descriptive title and header tags, etc. I think there's a lot that could have been done with it. Nevermind what everyone says, Google actually does not ignore meta tags. And meta-tag keywords are still indexed by search engines like Yahoo.

    Some small things you can do:
    Change your permalink structure to just show the postname, delete the date stuff. WP will handle redirecting any existing traffic to the old links automatically.

    Read about header tags and SEO, your pages don't seem to have any. This is part of how google understands the hierarchy of important content on your page after the title tag.
    At a bare minimum repeat what's in the title tags in your front page in a logical place between h1 tags. Make each video title an H2 header.

    On subpages, make the title of the video, the big link an H1 header, and make some secondary content the H2 header.

    All that said, backlinks is still the biggest thing. Adding an Addthis or Sharethis plugin to show bookmarklets on your Post pages can't hurt.

    In the bottom labyrinth of the internet, apparently, there are ogres chasing spiders.

    domain name should honestly be good enough as long as you do the minor shit

    i've seen some junk ass sites reign supreme after a couple months if they have the domain name

    the more back links, the better.
    or even mentions of your domain on sites(google counts that as a back link, although not with as much weight).

    what kingtoad said, too.

    i'll link to it on a couple of forums :o
