    What keywords are you trying to rank for?

    You don't need wordpress to rank a site, I've ranked simple HTML sites just fine.

    I can't say that your site can't rank, because it can still rank. My one-page site is still ranking in Google for some good keywords.

    But bear in mind that having only one page of content, the value of your site, in Google's eyes, is low, because Google loves content. So, if the term you are fighting is not too competitive, you MAY rank. But if your competitors is strong, better get someone create a wordpress site for you. I think it's better and cheaper to create your own wordpress site, it's easy and fast.

    Two things I'm going to advise to you now are:

    1. - Never post your site URL.

    2. - Never post your keyword(s).

    I'd suggest that you remove these now for obvious reasons.

    You might have a hard time ranking for the first 3 keywords. You do have some work ahead of you if you do plan on attacking them.

    Big G's network algorithm is complex, to derank a website is not simple unless irrelevant content or mfa site
    Try to generate more content of direct associate or relevance to the website

    It's not about the site itself, it's about your SEO strategy.

    I'm guessing you're new at SEO. Get to know SEO, get acquainted with it, make it your friend. Then study your competitors, look at their backlink profile, then do it better.

    It will not rank on its own. You will need off site SEO too, such as good backlinks and social signals.

    I suggest using White Hat SEO like directory submissions or guest posts, does help at the very least

    Its not true. But if you can make that HTML website, you can make a wordpress website.

    Wordpress will output the website to the user in simple HTML, the PHP processing just works on the servers side and generates the HTML on the fly. Google won't be able to tell the difference, nor would they give a fuck. How your website is made is no interest to them, good quality content is all they care about. That and fingering their butt holes.

    I don't think there is any miracle ranker nowadays. Try different things. I can recommend you high pr blog posts. Work best for me now.
