    Hi Everyone,

    So I set up my website, wrote a bunch of articles myself and included the keyword at a density of ~2% properly into the body and I've posted them (Title of the article is the keyword i'm trying to rank for). Only problem is that it's been a month and although all these posts have been indexed by Google, they are nowhere to be found in the search engine results page (SERPS). I am using various tools to check the serps and none of the posts are to be found, not even on the last page (ie page 21) of a google search (they're not ranked at all). I have built a minimum of 5 backlinks (Web 2.0) to each post and they has been indexed and it shows so on market samurai & Ahrefs and they are still live, yet despite all of this not a single post is in the serps. I did check that I didn't over-optimize any of the posts and pretty much tried everything. Additionally all my keywords are low competition. I'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions on how i should go about solving this problem.

    Backlinks the links you have in place and give them a little boost & add more content to the site as well as to the articles on the site. BTW, 2% is pretty heavy these days so lighten up a little there.

    You need quality backlinks, create contextuals as many as you can with your main keywords as anchors, and you will appear within the serps.
