    My domain is around 4.5 months old and my static website (no blog) was first online early June.
    I have several keywords and for the most part I cannot even rank for any of them.
    I understand that maybe the keywords are competitive and the website and domain are brand new, but shouldn't I be able to rank for all words even if I only show up on google page 1000??

    when you say you can't rank for these keywords, what position are they in your serptracker software?
    Also please say you have a decent website, that is finished, looking good, and has plenty of articles on it.

    i think im gonna set a bot to post unlimited articles on webs 2.0 however without internallinking them. this way i have a web 2.0 with more relevancy than one-page-blog. Comparing to other people bulk posting articles on webs - where link juice spltis on all posts - I'll save the juice just for one article and G robots will pick the other articles from sitemap that is included in robots


    its easier to rank a website with 100 relevant articles than with 1

    I'm using SEO PowerSuite free edition. I changed the threshold to show results in top 1000 pages and only a few show up.
    Doubting if the free tool was really any good I paid for one month of SERPLab only to find the results are the same.

    The website is finished, looks good and has NO ARTICLES because its a static website, in HTML/CSS only, as I mention in the beginning. The website has a HOME, ABOUT, CONTACT and a JOB DESCRIPTION page. The job description page is a special 2 word keyword for my niche which is also part of the domain name. This is the main keyword I target on the Job description webpage.

    How can I publish articles on a HTML/CSS only website? Only by adding more pages I guess?

    But even like this shouldn't I rank all words somewhere? Page 9999 even? Why no show at all? I thought that even without visitors, etc, etc, Google would at least have a look at it and then put it somewhere, right? I know it's indexed because searching site:mydomain.com shows all the 4 pages.

    Now the interesting part is that on Bing and Yahoo I can rank for my main keyword and show up on page one (7 and 8th position respectively) as I've also created a Bing Webmaster's account and not just Google Search Console.

    Why would Google bother ranking a super thin site with no content, no backlinks and for a competitive keyword?

    Yes I've been working on On Page SEO and when I use online tools I get pretty good SEO scores. Also I have good page Speed (GTMetrix speed: 98%, YSlow: 91%).

    I don't know if it's competitive. On KWFinder.com I get a difficulty rank of 22. Looking at the competition it shouldn't be a problem to rank at least on page 3 or 4 or something like that!
    My issue here is WHY NO SHOW AT ALL??? I'm not KW stuffing or anything...

    The speed of your site means nothing if your content is dirt.

    If you want to hear it, okay... Because it sucks and you have no idea what you are doing. End of story.

    And religiously following any automated KW competition tool will lead to exactly this.

    Crap...
    If that's the case I might as well just delete the Job description page and keep it a simple business website with 3 pages.

    And even if the KW is medium competition, I still do not see a reason why you should rank anywhere. Google shows top what, 300 results only anyway? Your site is thin, you have no backlinks, your onsite is most likely bad as well. Why on earth would google bother ranking you anywhere?

    Why can I get laid when it comes to ugly women and not with women that I would actually want to get laid? Lower standards.

    Do some more reading on SEO before you spend any more money and time on this. My 2 cents.
