But the advice I got from Experian was to get at least three more credit cards! Using one and paying it off doesn't work.....they are itching for me to go into debt to get a better credit score!

Sorry, you are misinterpreting the advice. The advice is NOT to go into debt. The advice is to get more credit and use it responsibly by using the additional accounts the same way you are using your current account - use them regularly and pay them off.
