    hello everyone

    I have a news blog with a nice theme. I know basics about link building and keywords and what not but what i am thinking is how could i rank it seeing as there are always new keywords everyday so i cannot build links for each of the 4-5 articles i post everyday.

    The blog is half copied content from sites such as huffingtion post, RT, CNN and other big news agencies with a sources and a link back to them.

    Other half is personally written content.

    There was 1 article i copied from intependent.co.uk about GMO babies one of the huge page on facebook shared it and my site got 100k hits in a day and that article ranked on 3-4th rank and i never did anything.

    But since I cannot build links daily for 4-5 articles each day (or should I? and how?) how do i go about ranking it

    Also if anyone could recommend me some wordpress plugins which could help me in this would be great!

    So any help would be awesome

    The best way to get your "news" site ranked is to get it listed on Google News. The requirements are pretty long, so you could rather follow the instructions in this article and post here if you're stuck somewhere.

    I'm trying to rank a technology news website, so just say my main keyword is "technology news" and then I have articles/product reviews that are SEO optimised (keywords, headers etc.) to the product, eg. "Samsung Galaxy S5 review" would be the keyword.

    But how would I optimise my website so whenever searches "technology news" that my site shows up if it mainly consists of articles/product reviews?

    This is what I use, and it is really powerful.

    Especially when your realise that wordpress doesn't just mean wordpress.com ;)

    I've found that it only posts my featured image and not the actual blogpost that links to my website?

    Dude why would you want to copy other people's content?

    yeah so you guys mean I just make new content and it will rank itself? So how do keywords in news sites get ranked when i search for ISIS for example there are a few sites that end up on the first page or say something random like a report on the noble prize commite do i make backlinks for each article with the keywords i use? There are 3-5 articles i post everyday

    and to make backlinks for 3-5 keywords each day would be a mountain of a task!

    To rank a news site, you don't need to build backlinks to every article you publish. All you have to do is increase your root domain's authority. Once your domain has gained a good amount of authority in Google, your articles will rank well without additional links.

    This is the answer I was looking for.

    But for that, do we build backlinks to our SEO optimised articles?

    Rewrite copied content using wordAI for example, correct it manually and post, create a lot of contextual backlinks, build your PBN for this. You can use high PR tumblr expired blogs for backlinks, you can buy them for cheap at seoclerk.com or screpe using scrapebox. Register them and write unique articles with your link inside, it should help you to rank

    You can use copied content but don't use lot of copied content in your site. Before posting copied content do manual correction. your article should pass the copycat check. And do more link building. If you post more unique and HQ content your site will get rank automatically :)
