Mr Koolkrazy - hello :)
As an extreme example, totally different from your website, take a look at mine: Laser Eye Surgery (http://www.blogstudio.com/woodgnome/laser.html). I have no links whatsoever to anyone. Why? I have concentrated my keywords & Search Engine Optimisation for all the different pages - so that they rank well in Google for many laser eye surgery orientated phrases & keywords. (It's also a big bonus for Google Adsense earnings as the only way out is a click on an adverte ;) )
I think you need to look at your SEO a bit. Although meta tags are not that important anymore, I notice you have shakira, laundry service as yout two main keywords. I doubt anyone will be searching for them, although you do have those words used once on your page.
Equally, crazy & cool in Google brings up zillions of other sites before crazy with a "K" is found.
What are your competitors doing on other "crazy cool" sites? Right click and "view the pages source" - check out their meta tags. Use "ctrl F" on your keyboard - how many times do their keywords appear on their pages - and how many of their keyords are likely to be the words that people are using to find a "cool & crazy" website?
I hope all this helps :)
