hi bhw let's just get to the point. i'm trying to do local seo ie rank sites in my native country but using links from bhw. the links would be in english but since english is pretty much the secondary official language in my country i decided to go ahead anyway. so i have a few questions: 1) how do i rank for broad search? i'm no.5, first page for my main kw but for exact search. i can't seem to get no1 for people who just type in kw without quotes. 2) i have exact match domain, kw in url, kw in title, kw in article (2 kws in 300 word article) and i have 150 backlinks to my site all homepage links. even with all this work put in, i still can't get no1 in a top10 serp consisting of fb pages, blog posts(not homepage), directories(yellowpages) and just people who do not know seo at all. no PR, and ZERO backlinks. i'm very confused.. things to note: it's a brand new domain. is this the reason i can't rank? should i just rank a web2.0 instead and do a redirect to my site? suggestions please..
