Meme Site Developed. Now What?

I've SEO'd sites before but my newest creation (hollywoodtotshots DOT com) isn't like any site that would be found through organic search.

Typically I would target specific keywords and use typical SEO strategies to get those keywords to rank high in the SERPs. However, I don't think visitors will come to my new site via search engines.

    Gallery sites can ave a tougher time ranking, take the time to use more descriptive file names, at least you use pirates.jpg rather than cryptic numbers like some, but if you named it: Pirates of the Caribbean parody.jpg and used alt text you may get more image search matches.
