how do I get the other 50% of referrals?

Currently ppl that find my site do so through search engines. My reporting tool shows that with 5 general kw's I get about 50% of the referrals.

Unfortunmately those 5 terms are fairly general, so i was looking for better kw's to attract more visitors.

While the first 5 get a lot of hits, there's a myriad of lesser-hit kw's so as to get to 80%-90% of the referrals, I'd need to add another 20-25 kw's.

In your opinion is it worth doing so, ie. 'spamming the meta tags'?

I would build the content to support the additional phrases.
If you target say "dancing shoe" and would like to attract traffic on "fancy dancing shoe", you need your pages to support this phrase too. A good rule-of-thumb is that you shouldn't put in keywords in your meta that is not found in your copy.

Do some research on related searches to your specific keyword phrases and extend your pages to support these phrases. Or simply build new pages to target more phrases.

Spamming the meta keywords won't do the trick for you.
