    my site is www.ImageShuffle.com
    He is not first for the phrase "Image Shuffle"
    The site is indexed and up for almost 2 weeks.
    How come he is not first for the 2 words in the domain?

    Thanks for help.

    you could easily rank for something with the word image in it... that wasn't a very smart answer. I'll bet you $100 I can rank #1 for "pencil train volleyball horse of man image" within 3 hours.

    just because you have a keyword in your domain doesn't mean you will be ranking 1st for it, you would need the right amount of content+backlinks.

    Maybe because you have it optimized for "imageshuffle" without the space? It really is kinda weird.
    That's a lot of dicks there in the gallery :)

    Well, for starters, your index paged isn't optimized the slightest bit for any keyword phrase. If you are trying to rank for the keyword phrase, "image shuffle" (for whatever reason that may be), you need to add that to your title, meta keywords, and meta description. Then add that keyword phrase throughout your page. Use an h1 tag somewhere. Also use the keyword phrase with a bold, italic, and/or underline tag. That would be good for a kick start.

    However, I don't know who is going to be searching for the term, "image shuffle" so you might want to think about another term to target if you want any traffic from optimizing your site. Then get some backlinks with anchor text for the keyword phrase.

    OP - you've got no on page SEO done. None of your meta tags are set, and your keywords are no where to be found in H1 tags etc. Also you need a fair few more backlinks with appropriate anchor text.

    There are loads of basic SEO PDF's here on this site that can help you out with this.

    Very simple answer. 1. Only your title says the actual phrase ImageShuffle on your page. 2. your meta keywords and descriptions only say this: "Image Hosting & Photo Sharing"
    3. You have no real text based content on your homepage. If you want to see what google sees check this link for your sites cache: http://74.125.155.132/search?q=cache:http://www.imageshuffle.com/&hl=en&strip=1
    that is all the content that Google sees on your site.

    So how do you fix this?
    Add a paragraph or two of original content to your homepage. Make sure it is text not a picture. Include the word that you want to be found for in it. Improve your Meta description with a real description of your site using the keyword you want to be found for. Start getting backlinks to point to your site and if possible try to have the anchor text say...can you guess what Im going to say...Thats right ImageShuffle, or what ever words you want to be found for.

    The main think people forget is optimize the title tag, the meta description, and add real text content to your pages. If there is no text for the spiders to crawl, then there is nothing to get indexed.
