    Lycos uses FAST results for its search. FAST is very similar to Google.

    You should put your keywords in the normal places such as the Title and META tags, link text and a few keywords in the content of your page. Putting your keywords in a couple of ALT tags couldnt hurt either.

    So what should I do? I've done these:

    1)meta tags
    2) meta description
    3) title
    4) put some keywords in text on index

    Anything else I can do?
