Hi Fellow BHW's, I have a few clients I do SEO for and the majority of them I can rank within 2-3 months and get them to spot #1-5 on page 1. Now this applies for long tail keywords as well as local keywords. The usual link pyramid and blog network post will get the thing up to page 1 FAST and keep it there. HOWEVER, with highly competitive keywords and national keywords, ie "web design" I literally tear my hair out trying to get the thing to stabilize and sustain long term rankings. Regardless of what I do it seems that these keywords refuse to move past spot #10 or so. I mean i try everything! Guest posts, blog posts, fresh content, etc. So guys, how do you tackle these highly competaive keywords? I was thinking adding more high pr guest posts and blog network backlinks as well as increasing the anchor text ratio and focusing more towards the money keyword. Your thoughts?
