    I have a client that is stuck in the 6th position for a fairly competitive keyword (nationwide). He has an OK site. Nothing fancy, but not horrible either. Do you think that's holding his rankings back?

    I have thrown everything, but the kitchen sink at the site (WEB 2.0's, guest posts, bookmarks, comments etc) consistently. In 4 months, I got him from the 3 page to the middle of the 1 page.

    Any thoughts, inputs, suggestions?

    Please give us more details about his site and the backlink strategy that you applied,else it's going to be a guessing game...

    It will rank, But we need to know how much you have diversified the keywords and the pages indexed. If possible add more pages and diversify the backlink profile more to stable the rankings first. Then, you can concentrate on moving up. If the site is currently dancing then you need to build links in chunks to keep the flow.

    Pick up two/three sites from serp #1 to #5 for his keywords. See their back link profile. They must be getting some niche related links...try to get those links...and you should be where you want to be !

    Spend a few hundred on 5-10 keyword targetted youtube videos (hosted on his branded channel)

    Thanks for the input guys!

    Duffers5000 I like your Youtube idea. How do I go about targeting keywords on a YouTube? I have never used that for SEO purposes. Some direction would be awesome!
