    I've been blogging for almost 2 years, but when I search my domain on google, it still shows some other info, my blog isn't on first 30 pages, I don't know why.

    My domain is pcmate.org

    when I type pcmate on google, it doesn't show nothing.

    Can you kindly give me any advice to get ranked for it?

    You need to do onsite and off site seo to make your website rank higher

    Answer is simple. When you search pcmate, google shows result for PC mate. It is a motherboard by msi. So all the top shopping and review sites comes up.

    Now your site is about SEO and websites, so why would you want to rank for keyword pcmate?
    Instead target your niche related keywords.

    With all due respect, you have a site about SEO and you can't even be bothered to change your theme from the default wordpress 2016 theme and no logo on your site.

    Looks seriously amateurish.

    As for ranking, @arpitagarwal82 hit the nail on the head. Why do you want or need to rank for pcmate???

    Why I shouldn't rank for my own domain, I want to be a brand name that people are going to search for it and why the heck to show some grahpic cards instead of my site, none of them was helpful.

    Abot the theme, I'm sure that you are amateurish by yourself, the theme doesn't have even a single impact on SEO, you can look seo by the sea uses the same theme and it rocks with ranking, read more dear.

    @kittykut thanks a lot.

    First change your brand name to something different and unique because, 3 main reasons.

    1) your current brand name is already associated with something else and going to be hard to rank no.1 just for your brand name.
    2) You do not appear to own the .com of the brand so someone else could come along in future and hijack your niche and brand name if your site becomes big!
    3) A unique brandable .com name will easily rank no.1 for the keywords since its not associated with anything else.

    Edit @claysmithpc : Archve.org shows your site was previously registered and used for some Chinese seo in 2014 so damaged goods and now useless for ranking pruposes: https://web.archive.org/web/20140106084217/http://pcmate.org/

    So looks like you didnt do your due diligence before choosing your brand and domain name!

    Take it whichever way you like, I was just trying to be helpful with constructive criticism.

    SEO by the sea may rank well but I wouldn't buy shit from that site or yours because it doesn't come across as professional and it certainly doesn't look like you know jack about SEO!

    People had already given great hints and still you want to rank unrelated content? It's impossible
    Please update us how it is going so far.

    Why do people start websites about SEO, when they're clueless about SEO?

    Work to make sure that your anchor text has your domain in it.
