Doing my boss - site goes up. Otherwise - silence.

Hi, wanna talk about some weird shit going on.
I've been working for a year in one bookmaker company and interesting stuff happened there. My boss told me to make simple site with free LP theme and it will go up eventually with simple text. I checked his site, saw the text, nothing special, simple good article, around 700 words and NO CSS AT ALL. Simple h1 and two p. And this site goes up in a few weeks.
I tried this myself and nothing happened. More important I've made some good LP's with good articles, good relevancy and not too spammy. Tried different keywords. And silence. First time I tried niche and nothing worked. Before that I made several different shops and they worked. But with this niche I can't get any traffic via seo, only after several months of linkbuilding. Tell me, what could go wrong.

You know, the funny thing is that my boss can't tell what is my problem too. That's bothering me so much. Like, I'm not looking for easy ways to get traffic, I'm not lazy. But this thing is just bothering me.

TL,DR:

Boss: 700 words article, LP with no css, iframe, no ads, no linkbuilding - 3 weeks and it's getting traffic.
Me: 2000 words article, good LP with free bootstrap theme, working with site everyday, updating everything constantly - 1 visitor per week.

WTF?!

If it is an established and recognized company, then it may be that existing customers are looking for information about this specific company and therefore they are getting traffic, and if they have a brand name or a unique company name then that also contribute and could explain the phenomenon.

We were doing brand keywords.

Ok simple to start looking at:

- How old is your boss' site and how old is yours?
- While you cannot fully rely on Majestic/Ahrefs, compare them in there pretty sure yours will suck in comparison...

CSS/Styling in itself is 0 ranking factor... Only when it impacts UX and thus say bounce rate may it play a role... or of course if your styling increases pageload ...

Domain Authority > Links > Good onsite.... Content is only King if there is no competition and/or the keyword is easy. Sure you have seen spammy SERPs what crap ranks with the right links..
 
Create a new page, copy his 700 words article, change the text so it doesn't look like duplicate except for the keywords he is ranking for. Keep the same keyword density and have them at the same places as he does sit back and watch what will happen. If that page doesn't rank it means that he has some (hidden) powerful backlinks that you're not aware of. I'm assuming that you're talking about global ranking, not local.

Sites are totally new.

Ahrefs and majestic won't show anything good because they are month old.

Imagine situation, where you create site, put article and after 3 weeks it starts getting good traffic.

And my boss somehow can do that. And I can't. I'd love to hear version, but I asked him yesterday and he has no idea. It's like I'm cursed or something, I don't know.

Has he done it repeatedly? Or is it just one site he made that somehow ranked that quickly? Not all keywords are equal.

No, I'm talking about traffic from one country, doubt you can count it as global.
Basicly, how I wrote articles - collect 10 top pages for 1 keywords, combine them create something unique, then update site everyday, change one or two words, update sitemap.
relevancy was around 95%.

There were no backlinks, I checked every one of his site. And no ads too.

All the time during this year. Almost all his keywords like this:
"ACME betting football"
"ACME official site"
"ACME working mirror today"
etc
 
@KONODIODA
  1. what is your keyword density as compared to your boss's?
  2. what about number of times the keyword is mentioned in the source code?
  3. what about the number of times your keyword in mentioned in <p> tag as compared to your bosses?
  4. what about H tags?
  5. What about your keyword being in the first <p> and last <p> of the page as compared to your bosses page?
