    Hello guys,

    i have been trying to push one of my sites really hard. because of my limited funds i do everything manually. i got the free version of Traffic travis and started following my competition. the guy ranked number 1 has the exact match domain name as mines . hes a dot net and im a dot org. i cant seem to understand why he is beating me like crazy with less backlinks. i saw his site and IMO i have better content.

    [​IMG]

    as you can guess i am in the frugal living niche. i am ranked 9th and he is ranked 1st. i was ranked 5th 2 days ago so i am blaming this on the google dance. i am really fighting for tha t1st position.

    any advice and feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Yeah I am pretty sure I pulled up your site, and the onpage needs some work.


    <title>Saving you money</title>

    <meta name="description" content="" />

    <meta name="keywords" content="" />




    If this is your site, You will need to fix these things with your keywords to get it ranked. PM me if you need some help.

    Get some basic seo course first. and more links doesn't always mean you will rank higher. The quality of backlinks does matter

    Also get some links from related pages, this will work wonders for your site. At the moment all your links aren't from non related sites.

    By the way it's quite easy to know your url...

    From your screen shot, most of the sites have "extreme couponing canada" on their url :p

    So its relatively easy to guess the keyword
