seo is something that shouldn't be understimated, because based on your rank in the search results, the number of people who can reach your website might double or treble, probably the cr dev team already knows, but still, I noticed that in cr there're some flaws that might affect the website rank, for example the meta-keywords tag is missing from the home page www.crunchyroll.com:

This is a partially-complete seo analysis: powermapper.com. Alternative analysis service with video guides: seoworkers.com. The Crunchyroll channel on Dailymotion is not linked to Facebook nor Twitter, and is there a reason why Crunchyroll has no Vimeo accounts?

Most of the major search engines no longer rely on the meta tag to search for pages, and way page content much more heavily.

Despite the lack of meta tags, I just did a search for "anime" on Google and Bing; CR was the second result on Google (below the Wikipedia article) and sixth on Bing (under the same article and a number of illegal streaming sites).

Same for me, but when I tried searching in Bing today it still didn't list Crunchyroll in the search results, not even in the first 30 pages, even though everyone is using Google, Bing is probably the second or third most used search engine, maybe it's not even related to the keywords and the problem might be somewhere else, though the keywords are just a line of code worth less than 100 bytes.

EDIT: it might be related to the Bing crappy localized and filtered search results.

Also the YouTube channel (like Dailymotion) is not linked to any social network (except G+), even if it seems useless, advertising the CR social pages is not a bad thing, since it doesn't cost anything and it requires like 10 seconds to apply.

Note: searching "manga" in any search engine doesn't give any result related to Crunchyroll (except in Google on the 2nd page).
