    You can't speed up it, only add some backlinks everyday from sites which also have high authority.

    You have to ad more pictures to your site because it is the most important signal for Domain Authority. just kidding :)) here maybe this can help ..

    Pick the best of the best out of these links, and plan strategies to take a hold of them. You won't just simply run into them; you'll have to plan for the. Lets take for instance, you see a great resource page that is of high PA, all you need t do then, is make a strategy and a piece of content that would suit for that page. Then get to know the webmaster and suggest the piece of content.

    Whew.. I'm glad you edited that and added that you were just kidding. When I read the first version of your reply about having to add more pictures, I was wondering what on earth you were talking about.

    While it does appear that in many instances, Google is looking at "user engagement" which could include photos and video, there are many websites that have little or almost zero photos, yet still have "authority." Take a look at the About.com sites - many of those have very few and many have no photos at all on their articles.

    First - it probably won't stay long.


    • Google dance happens with "other people" not just yourself. New post - ranks real high for a few days or weeks..then pffft gone. You could be watching someon elses shuffle.
    • Is it an authority site? Does it have a PR of 4 or higher, an Alexa rank below 50,000? Does it have over a quarter of a million words on it? Authority gets to push other sites out of the way sometimes. Maybe you don't think that's fair? But that's the way it is
    • Are you SURE he's number 1 - not just number one on your PC doing your search. Personalized results - essp in a field or search term you visit often are a ball-ache. How have you checked?
    • EMD means next to nothing these days. EMD authority transfer is perhaps the biggest nerf in 2012
    • How good is your content?
    • How good are your links?
