Before I submit my question and ask for suggestions/help/advise. Let me quickly describe, whats going on. My friend had a blog and on 15th September, it will celebrate it's birthday. He handed over the blog to me. He already had some 160+ posts and are getting good traffic from long tail keywords. After I got possession, I saw there is one keyword with 10,000+ per month searches. My friend blog surround that keyword topic but didn't had a post target that specific keyword. I create a 1200+ words post with bullets, images etc. (my on page optimization seems good but suggestions are welcome) 1: I bookmark (Digg and Stumbleupon ). 2: I share it on facebook, twitter. Summary: 1: Blog is one year old. 2: Blog has 160 Posts (self written and unique). 3: Blog is getting traffic. 4: Post is created for targeted keyword with 1200+ words with good on page optimization. Question: What else should I do to rank no1 and monitor my progress in serps ? Suggestion/Advice please. I will daily/weekly update you guys on the progress.
