    I've come across a weird issue. I posted 20 articles in one day for a bunch of easy keywords on a well established site that sees around 40k pages views a month. However, none of the newly published articles are ranking for anything, despite them all being naturally indexed.
    Before anyone asks, I know the keywords are easy, I'm not relying on tools to tell me this, I've done manual competitor analysis and there are very few if any competitors addressing the keywords in the post titles. It's the same method I used to get to 40k page views.

    My question is, is there some sort of filter with google if too many posts are added in one go? It seems to be very strange.

    Yeah, but I can normally publish a post and expect to see half a dozen keywords show up in ahrefs within a few hours. It's true that ranking takes months, but I expect to see some movement within 2 weeks.

    Firstly, I'm going to let you know that consistency matters with Google. So, if you are consistenly posting 20 articles here or there, Google loves you (given that they have proper on-page SEO).

    However, if you're not consistently posting articles and then randomly drop 20, Google isn't going to rank those solely on the basis of you posting them.

    So, to summarize:
    1. On-page SEO is important, always do it.
    2. Post new content often. Every other day or three times per week if possible.
    3. Backlinks come after you've got the first two down.

    Hi mate,

    Patience, my friend patience...

    You just need time to rank:
    - Aged of website
    - Popularity or KW competition
    - Other seo variables

    Cheers,
    Commoner

    The console looks fine. The link is interesting, I'll need to do more digging.

    I don't think it's that. It's the exact same method and techniques I used for my other 100 articles, the only difference is I posted all of these in 1 day.

    Make sure you have optimized your content for keyword intent. Keep your site active by posting content consistently and user engaged. Gradually build backlinks and increase relevance.

    Despite being naturally indexed, I manually indexed a handful of posts in Search Console. However, it was throwing up errors about not being able to retrieve the index. The posts that I did manage to index again after multiple attempts are now ranking... so, it's definitely something funky with google.

    Still battling with Indexing in Google Search Console, constantly getting this error when trying to inspect a URL:

    Any suggestions?

    Posting is not enough. Also I would rather schedule one article every 2 days rather 20 articles in 1 day and then nothing for the coming weeks

    Try Drip feed method and it won't get rank easier in SERP additionally you have to try other seo methods like blog commenting, article submission, graphic submission, social bookmarking, outreach and web 2.0.

    If I have 20 new articles going onto a site, I schedule them over a couple of weeks, sometimes over a month. It looks more natural unless of course, you are posting 20 new articles per day, everyday.
