    Right now there's the main page, where pictures are sorted from new to old.

    Each image with a link to it's own .html page, which kinda loads the main page but with this image as "starting point".

    Those image htmls all have their own keywords depending on the images tags/name.

    First I thought this was the best way to do it, but now I guess my page has way too many keywords (we're talking about ~9k images).

    I really want to keep the .htmls as "starting points" but am flexible in things like keywords etc.

    Sounds like something that would have a stronger social media/viral campaign than it would at having any luck with being an SEO campaign.

    Be sure to tag images with proper description that would help you a bit with seo

    All done. Sitemap / Imagesitemap etc. All images can be found on google with proper names. The problem is that I rank with 10k pages pretty badly.
    Maybe add some sort of description to the top of all pages, no matter what image. And also add some main keywords which shall always be used?

    In short: I think it's extremely competitive to rank for funny pics. There are tons of pages like that out there. So LanceV is right, you have to try to go viral. Try faceb**k and pinter**t. Maybe you want to hire some of professionals here to get you going.

    Just make sure that all those images have proper ALT tags and captions, they would help search engines identify and rank your picture better. And get them viral by sharing them on social media since such funny images go viral on social media really easy...
    This would help them since these would act like backlinks and social media backlinks are really powerful these days, also they would help in bringing more traffic directly from where they are posted.

    I would make a facebook fanpage and post 1- 3 of these funny pictures a day linking back to your site. Promote via virality, likes of a picture will mean it will show on users newsfeed to their friends, which results in more page likes for you. Watermark each of the images with your site and eventually you should see traffic coming through that way.
