I have a site with 20 posts, I was trying to rank this 1 post targetting a keyword with only 1k MS , it's 3 and half months old, and I still can't rank it. #1-5 are all forum threads with low content and 1-3 backlinks at most with hardly any keyword density. My site is in #6 with over 70 backlinks to this 1 post and over 200 links over the whole domain, all backlinks are web2.0, 301's with blog comments and web2.0 behind them, 1 PBN post and 50+ blog posts. Somehow I still can't get on top 3 for a 1k MS Keyword even though ON Page SEO is on point, got 30x more links than the forums ranking on top 3 while all links being quality links and only 100 sites have this keyword in the title. keyword revealer gives it a 19 in terms of difficulty.
