    Recintly I made website like pastebin. I want to rank my website for keyword "paste" and want to know is this even possible? Competiotion is very strong and the word is to simple... But


    My domain is - paste7.com


    I think I will get some good backlinks in the future... I made meta tags almost 100% matching with my content... Internal linking is good. What should I do more?

    I will suggest you to be a little more specific regarding your keyword cause just the keyword "paste" gives you a fairly broad category and high competition. Go with a long tail keyword with 2 terms. but along with the competition you need to determine the search span too. There are multiple programs that help you find the statistics and help you figure out the right keyword. I am gonna try to link one

    How to chose the right keyword

    Yeah you have to use more specific keywords. Ranking for paste is near impossible and even ranking short term using some of the lesser-known methods will not last and will ultimately get your site pummeled by Google.

    I also want to rank one of my websites for "loans". Hope I can achieve it. :rolleyes:

    Jokes apart, it might be possible to rank in paste but that would take ages as the higher the competition the higher is the filtration and manual checks. My advise would be to try paste but add a large list of related keywords which are easier to rank. Maybe you would rank the other keywords soon. Then if the rest works, you might finally go for the kill in the few years from now.

    Look at the screenshot below.
    [​IMG]

    There are 2 authority website, 2 Wikipedia articles, one of which is about one of the authority websites; and Google News in the SERPs. The chances of you ranking for that keyword with your website's current state are slim to nil.

    Instead, you would have a much better shot at ranking for the keyword "paste text", although even that keyword would prove difficult to rank for with your website (although the chances are much better than ranking for "paste").

    Edit: see my post below.

    I just checked the seo competition and i see a useless site sitting there on the first page with very few links for the specified keyword so i guess you might just get lucky provided that your on page and off page seo is perfect but then its going to be difficult with a fresh domain.

    I see the website you're talking about in the SERPs. I tried looking for the domain age of the site, and it was created on 2014-07-10, so it's only a year old. Here's some other information about that site:

    • Keyword density (paste): 4.91%
    • It has 1 backlink from a Russian website that was created on 2011-11-06
    • It has a page in the Apple store
    • The owner created a VK account for the site (it appears that the owner is Russian, as some of the posts are also in Russian).
    I suspect that the owner has more backlinks for that site than we can see.

    I dont think he does. The onsite of the page looks amazing for which i guess he is able to rank .He would rather spend money on ASO than SEO . The keyword "paste " is not really competitive as it sounds and also It has an average monthly search of only 49,000 .

    Ranking for "paste" would get you a lot of not so targeted traffic anyways. I'd rather have 10 ultra targeted visitors than 1000 non targeted visitors that are gonna blow my bounce rate to hell.

    Just look at at all the meanings of paste. Your gonna get kids looking for something to eat or who knows what. More defined keywords will get better traffic and better return all around.

    Agreed. The site reminds me a lot of pastebin so try to figure out how people find them and slowly leech off their traffic. Even if you ranked #1 for paste, I don't believe you would get more than 50-100 visitors who stay on your site for more than 60 seconds.

    Its really not that simple. You would need to build links, have good content, social, and a lot more. Just browse this forum and you would find a LOT of really helpful information.

    This is going to likely take you MANY months or years to achieve even if you are real good at SEO. And even then #1 for a one word term like that will be impossible given comp.

    Find a lot of longtails that equal out to give you the traffic you want and build landing pages for each.

    Reminds me of the time when I was an SEO newb and tried to rank for the keyword 'acne'. Those were the days!

    I had zero SEO knowledge at the time though and you sound like you know what you're doing so you might as well stick with it. One word keywords are pretty darn difficult to rank for though.
