    Hi BHatters,

    Lately I'm trying some methods I got here on BHW. I decided to focus on Micro Niche sites, which in my opnion seems to give more return to the effort you put in the sites.

    So, I found what seems a good keyword according to Market Samurai. 1,300 daily searches, Less than 100,000 competitors, CPC 0,20$, OCI 24%.

    My keyword was going to be "aparelho ortodôntico" or "aparelho ortodontico". The phrase to broad is 100% for both keywords. I bought the domain (aparelho-ortodontico.com), did general SEO, on page SEO, meta tags, etc.. You guys can take a look better visiting the domain I listed above.

    I have 2 competitor for the same keyword (aparelho-ortodontico-sp.com and aparelhoortodontico.net) ranking #3 or #4 with only about 20 backlinks from Social Bookmarking sites, so I thinked "Well, I can beat then in a week or two surely".

    But I'm having a big bad time with this domain. I have 147 backlinks according to Y! Site explorer and I'm not even in top 1000 (used market samurai to get the ranking).

    Google already indexed some pages and I can find my site if I search by Exact Match for my domain, but only this way I find it.

    Could you guys help me out to discover what the hell I did wrong?

    I'm quite newbie at this, so any help are very appreciated!

    Thanks!!

    Build more back links and add more content and give it a little time. Your not going to make bank in a day. Do as the ninja's do assess the enemy and make moves based on theirs. You are competing in a niche where a lot of those first page websites have a lot of domain age and tons of pages. Sure there may be two or three that have a limited number of backlinks but they just may be doing the google dance. concentrate on building your site and you will eventually get these

    They were registered early september and october 2009 respectively.
    So google will consider them more important now.
    build links consistently and you will see improvements.
    general time frame is 2 months.
    our site is not even 20 days old. so just wait. to speed up make more back links in the mean time.
    and best of luck.

    LazyFrog,

    Uhm, great info you shared with me, didnt know these stuff. Only knew that domain age counts for SERP but thought that only really old domains with 1+ year was in that frame!

    Thanks you too LazyFrog!

    Am I the only one troubled by a thread where the chief posters are called "tooled" and "PigBenis" respecively? :)

    At OP. Backlinks are not everything. You also want to get the right sort of backlinks.

    I see you are using WP on your site. Use the SEO plugins. Also, you want to be sure that you are highlighting your blog's language so the search engines rank you in the right places.

    Good advice, but the whole point of pursuing the Micro Niche business is to pick keywords that have competition that can easily be eclipsed. If the websites that are currently ranking have lots of pages, you'll have a difficult time competing with a 4 - 6 page Micro Niche site.

    Judson,

    Kinda funny. LoL. But thanks for the advice.
    I'm already using Platinum SEO for WP and GEO targeted my site using GWebmasterTools.



    c210flyer,

    So you're saying that Micro Niche sites that have less pages gets better ranking? Do you recommend for me to decrease the number of pages to rank better?

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Supamanjon,

    I thought that google ignores hypen, dot and other kind of character when searching. Could you give me a direction where you found that, please?

    Longover,

    Uhm.. Thats nice to hear. I'll take a look into it today. Could you tell where'd you gather that data, please?

    Thanks again guys!
