Google show different page than optimized page

I have a website that when searching for one of the keywords I'm trying to optimize for I get a different page in the SERP than the page optimizied for that specific keyword.

Lets say you have a website optimizied for the keyword: funny videos
And when people search for funny videos, the first page listed in the SERP is a page displays a funny video. Instead the SERP should first display the funny videos page (funny_videos.aspx), a page displaying a list of funny videos. There the user can click on a specific video to view it. The keyword phrase is plural, so it shouldn't go to a specific video page but instead go to the page showing a list of videos...

I'm not sure what to do. The funny-videos.aspx page is optimizied for the keyword funny videos.

This site don't show much text on each page, just tags and video titles etc, so keyword density might be high :confused:. A I mention the keyword many placed on the page: title, headline, text under the video etc....

any suggestions?

    Make more links to the other page.

    Also is the page you are targeting indexed?

    I think for a start it could be a good idea to create some backlinks to the funny videos page. Using the funny videos keyword. So maybe google will associate funny videos with funny-videos.aspx on my site.

    Funny videos are not my actual keyword, but it's an example which explains my problem very well

      As of today no backlinks are created to this funny-videos page, I will start creating backlinks.

      I've checked the first 1000 page in the SERP and the funny-videos page isn't listed there. It was listed for about a week ago. Instead I find several other pages related to my site (the page showing specific videos). Maybe funny-videos.aspx is de-indexed?
