I own a fairly high ranking web site for the keywords I'm targeting. Now a few years ago, I had a similar site in the same industry and found I was able to get a good amount of traffic by writing articles relating to my main topic and then linking back to my home page. The articles are written based upon keyword research (good ratio of searches to competition), and then I write the articles 100% originally and actually try to give the person searching what they are looking for (completely white hat, just optimized for the keyword I'm targeting.). Now when doing this many years ago I had incredible success. That could very well be because the times have changed, and I might be getting penalized somehow for targeting these individual domains (though it isn't obvious at first). So my question is, what methods would you use to target these more niched keywords branched off from your main site. All the URLs right now are in the form of: /niche_keyword_here.html, and are linked off the home page (PR5) and an articles page (PR5). All the articles are ranking terribly, even though the homepage is doing great for some really tough keywords. Should I try to get inbound links to each individual article? Is this even a valid method any longer? Sorry for all the questions, I've just been a bit frustrated after putting all this time into a completely white-hat method and getting no results. Thanks.
