    Hey,

    I have a relatively new (around 3 months old) website built on an aged older domain with clean history. I am targeting relatively easy (some super easy) keywords, which are ranking really bad. There was and is link building in progress. I did a lot of onsite SEO grooming, changing densities and so on, but I have a feeling that there is something wrong. Currently I have around 20 articles, each at least 1500 words long, some at 2000.

    I should also mention, that this site had trouble indexing. Some inner pages wouldn't index even after a small package of social signals and that I had to index them "manually" through webmaster tools.
    I would appreciate if some more experienced member could take a look and help me out. Because I have no idea what to do with this site and whether there indeed is something wrong. Send me a PM please, thank you.

    Aged and clean history but does the site have high TF and DA? Just these stats do not mean your posts will naturally rank without any link building. I can look at the site if you want.

    I have my own PBN, so figuring out domains is not an unknown thing to me really. This one was fairly decent when it comes to TF. I didn't expect to rank right away, but after onsite SEO, some offsite SEO and interlinking, I would expect most keywords to be much much higher than that. I feel like something is not right there. That's why I would appreciate someone to take a look. I will also provde viewkey from Serpbook for faster analysis.

    Your site sucks, your off-page sucks and your on-site probably sucks. Is this what you wanted us to say? How could we know what the hell is wrong with your site that no one knows URL? Dont PM me URL, I am not interested

    You can't expect that much help without giving out the URL. But anyways, use webmaster tools and "fetch" in the panel to get the pages indexed.

    The first rule of the BHW is not to share your sites here publicly, so I don't really understand the complaining behing "not sharing the URL". Every single thread where URL is posted, gets immediately 458 posts with "edit your post, don't share your site here". And now all of a sudden it's a problem that I didn't do so. Wow, what a lovely contradiction. Not that I would expect anything helpful from you really.

    I know what to do to get pages indexed, I mentioned it just as an indicator that something is possibly not right.

    I am not an utter retard when it comes to SEO, just wanted to see an opinion and insight of someone else. But thanks for help everyone... not. It's getting pretty downhill with the "great community" that BHW used to be.
