could it be that im over using my keywords thats keeping me rom geting a beter SERP even though Im ading conent. Ive got 60 pages so far but im on page 6 for my keyword? I do have a bad habbit of 'I have to have 1 more keyword than the next guy to get listed ahead of him;' and tend to over do my keywords i think. any advise on how to find out how to the correct balance of keywords on my index page / my total content?

Jay, better than adding one more keyword than the next guy add one more inbound link than the next guy has. Matter of fact, some of us have been noticing that pages with fewer occurrences of keyword phrases have been doing better recently.

Now, you mention "keyword" in the singular. Is that one single word you're going after? If so, you might fare better by going after 2, 3 and 4 word phrases that include the word, including different forms of the keyword. Those are generally far less competitive, easier to rank for, and often very targeted so they can tend to do pretty well.

Thanks for your reply. I am using 6 movies at 12 sec each or a 3 moive 25 sec movie. (MGP rules). and I use a box in the table to describe the movie. hers is where I put all my keywords phrases. I should have meniontioned that I use a keyword phrase (2 words) not 1 keyword. Ive been told to try to find one thats between 150-250k, is that correct?

Thanks alot for yout help,

well I personally can guess what <snip> 2 word term you're trying to hit but it will never happen with mgp/tgp <snip>. try making more traditional content pages on your preview section. it's better, both bandwidth wise and will get better traffic overall. trust me.

Well let's not make presumptuous guesses or jump to irrelevant conclusions, anime_otaku. It makes little difference what a type of site any site is, the same principles apply across the board and your suggestion about "traditional content pages" is sound reasoning.

What it sounds like is that there's a table with descriptions in one column and links to film clips of some sort in another column, much like there would be with software downloads. Regardless of the content, the topic, or the structure, it's still all just words.

Whatever the case, write the descriptions in a natural manner designed for site visitors and if you can, put a paragraph of descriptive text at the top of the pages with a bit of added text also at the bottom of the pages if possible. That gives the opportunity for more actual "content" per page.
