    Hello, I have been working on a micro niche site for over 2 years now i have 94 pages indexed and 313 backlinks however these backlinks are from a long time ago as i have neglected the site duo to my graduation from college.

    So in the last month i gathered some really nice keywords with high cpc and extremely low competition all related to my niche then i posted 3 articles and noticed i'm not ranking very well after 2 weeks.

    Today using moz bar i found out that my domain authority is 1 ! (it was 16 before )
    any idea why this happened ? and the most important question is there any hope for a site like this if i work on it ? and what should i do to get my domain authority back. Thanks

    link velocity is a factor, if you were building links, and suddenly you stopped for a year, that doesn't look very natural at all,
    As for the domain authority, i wouldn't even mention that, its just a 3rd party metric, what counts is your traffic and earnings.

    i posted 3 articles with some very extremely easy keywords for 2 weeks now but sill not ranking in any of them.
    some tags just ranked in the 3rd page but not the page itself

    if your not ranking for anything check webmaster tool for manual action. If your ranking but really high up give it more than 2 weeks thats way too short of a time frame. If your scared some of the links are toxic, run them through semrushs link toxicity checker find the toxic ones and dissavow.

    Here is a screenshot from SERP Checker after 2 weeks. those are extremely low competition keywords. also noticed that only the "tags" are ranking not the pages any idea why ?

    I am not familiar with serpchecker so forgive me if the answer is in the image...have you verified that your three new posts are even indexed? and are they good posts or 400 word articles with the kw repeated a bunch of times.

    Hello, thx for helping me. i posted 3 articles each has 5 keywords in it. 1000 words each. and yes all 3 are indexed.
    is it better to have each article focused on 1 keyword and repeat the keyword 3-5 times. or should i include 5 keywords in each article but not repeated

    the article should be focused on the reader not the keyword. 5x is likely too many unless it reads really sensible; I would have did 1x and use lsi's (kw in title and h1 is often plenty for a test or easy ranker). while it can get messy, is the home page or any indexed internal pages linking to the posts? 2 weeks is also not a long time for "very well rankings" or any rankings though that may not be the issue. 313 links 94 pages .....sounds suspect... and you let it go, tells me it wasn't successful at the time... perhaps it had or has a penalty. feel free to share the site and pages and I will have a look. DA or any metric will be irrelevant especially if you are not ranking at all. you can simply brainstorm 20 easy rankers and check the serps for the DA of page 1 results....90% of them will be zero metric inner pages of sites.
