    I have a website with about 230 reviews, mostly for electronics. I am hoping to rank for the product code, which has 10 to 100 local searches in my country.
    Example: "Olympus E-PL3" is the title of the article, url is mydomain.ro/Olympus-E-PL3 and the keyword is "Olympus E-PL3". All articles are at least 300 words, written in Romanian language, 0.5-1.5 keyword density, all unique handwritten but not the best quality (8/10 overall). I have set the location to be Romania from webmaster tools.
    Few of my articles ranked in top 10, but maybe only 4 or 5 out of 230. Articles now have about 2 years old, and never ranked.

    Can anyone with experience join this conversation and help me fix this problem? 230 posts are a lot, and even that they have low search volume, i should have a lot more traffic than 30-50 UV/month.

    P.S.: my guess is that google doesn't know he needs to rank my website for google.ro, and puts my keywords in google.com serp, where the competition is fierce.
    I also have this problem with Structured Data, but that is only for rich snippets, i don't think it has to do with my rankings. See the image below.

    Do your site has more authority than your competitors (known stores/sites has probably high authority)? Do you build links?

    Also you said 10-100 local searches which means 10-100 searches per month, so 30-50 UV per month doesn't seem bad considering you are not number 1 (as you said top 10 and not number 1).

    Build some buffer sites for your main website.. If it doesn't work, build contextual blast to buffer site..

    I have 230 kw to rank for. if we consider an average 30 local searches for each, should be 7500 local searches for all. I am getting 30-50/month, because my keywords are nowhere to be found in the top 100.

    230 kw to rank means for each keyword you have competitors, so for each keyword: do you have more authority than your competitor for that keyword? Do you have better site and content in the eye of Google in comparison to your competitor? There are so many factors that Google use to rank a site. Having an article with some keyword density does not guarantee you will rank well even if searches are low.

    I have previously ranked same kind of keywords, only with a good article. The problem is none of my keywords are in top 100. I understant you need a good seo strategy for first page, but i am saying that my keywords are nowhere.

    I'm glad you know what gender Google is. Can you tell me how you found out?

    I have other english websites, with 0 backlinks, only ranking from well written articles.The keywords for this website are ranked in top 100, even for 10.000 global searches, where the serp competition is high. On my Romanian website, keywords are not ranking at all. And how much seo competition do you imagine a 50 local searches keyword might have ??? Even my grandma could rank those. Please stay out the topic if you don't understand my problem.

    Even if i would have 50 extremely strong competitors on a 10 local search keyword, i would still have to be in top 100. I checked if site is penalized or sandboxed; it isn't.
