Hey guys, So lately ive been trying to rank a dummy (but not spammed) site on very low competition keywords but it seems that my efforts are futile as it has been 2-3 weeks and i dont see my site in top 100 serps, which is really soul crushing. Im not here to whine as that wont lead anywhere, but im here to try and understand why i cant rank in these very low competition long tail keywords. (They are "how to *" for the matter) So here's what i have been doing for this site: 1) i bought a new domain, non emd. 2) did the kw research and i am targetting very low competition keywords, where the top 10 serps are blogspots or some weebly blogger. Niche is non affiliate and non profitable, as i want to understand what i am doing wrong or if its just google. 3) I have written about 10-15 articles myself fully optimised, with pics, videos, tags, meta tags and outbound links to high pr sites (Wikipedia or so) 4) for the offpage seo, i have been doing everything manual. I have been creating squidoo lenses, weebly, blogger, articles from high pr sites and yes, every site is indexed, even the backlinks. 5) I have been doing this for the last 2-3 weeks without any success or any signal of whether or not i am on the right track. So basically thats what i have been doing to try and rank this site on very low competition long tail keywords. I really dont know if im on the right track or not. Ive been using serpfox in the last 4 days and all my pages for the keywords im targetting are on serps #120+. Again guys, i am NOT whining about why this is happening, but i am trying to understand what i am doing wrong as i really cant see what i may be doing wrong. Here are some stats for some metrics that could be faulty but which i dont think they are: 1) anchor text is: 50% generic kws, 5% the main kw, 4% (8 times) secondary kws, 3% lsi, 10% either naked url or click here and similar kws. 2) kw density on main site: 1.5% main kw, 1% lsi, 2% generic kws. (I try to combine the kws in 1 article, but i am also making articles targetting only lsi or generic on backlinks) 3) kw density on backlinks: 1.5% lsi, 2% generic kws, 1%-2% main kw ( asni say this percentages are distributed on articles and these percentages arent in 1 article; so 1 atrticle could be about only lsi, or other for generic kws or another for the main kw or 1 article using 2 percentages like maybe click here and a synonym) With that being said guys, i would love to hear your opinion as i am utterly lost here and really dont know what to do next! Then again, this is not a rant as that serves nothing, but i am trying to understand what i am doing wrong as really, the only thing i can rank are churn and burn bloggers that dont bring any $$$ somehow... Also, remember that this site is nonprofitable and its just a test site with no real way of monetising, exept maybe, adsense. Thanks for your advice, guys!
