Anyone else having this problem?

When checking in GSC or site:example.com, my posts are indexed.

But in GSC, Ahrefs or Semrush they aren't ranking for any keywords.

About 3 months old.

Any ideas? DR 35 domain, healthy link profile, 11 months old, VPS hosting, HTTPS

Yeah these are easy keywords, my site isn't in the top 200, even for fairly difficult keywords I'd expect to be in the top 200.

I have very similar problem, all old posts are ranking fairly well but those which are added in last 3 months are not. What else can I do instead of waiting? Nothing.

You use the right keywords. See what happens after you use strong articles :) :) :)

Same, I have 2 posts that just won't rank no matter what I do to them. I've even re-written them and made sure there are no issues in regards to plagiarism. I then decided to get some backlinks to them to see if it would help, but nothing so far has helped. One of the pages did rank for 1-2 days at #8 then vanished forever. (I have no penalties, anything bad that would affect it either)

It's annoying since they do get good traffic from my interlinking.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one. My old posts are ranking from #30 - #8 so it's not like I have a penalty either. Odd because they're ranking in Bing no problems. I wonder if this has anything to do with the updates and covid...

What on earth are you on about?

what did you do?

Requested homepage to be indexed again - what's interesting is my homepage is ranking for these keywords, not the posts themselves. Something wrong with Goog

You have to use right keyword and strong article.

Ranking of keywords depend on the competiton. If you did good keyword research and you are in low competitive niche then you might rank within 2-3 months. If you facing the issue then you must check the domain history that you are using. May be it was registered with another person a long time ago and hit by Google.

It depends on competion, build relevant link from trusted sites and also check with on page optimization, this can help.

How about the keywords competition? add few long tails to the articles.

Things just take time, I've had the same thing again when I started my new site two weeks ago. Since a few days, everything is going fine. Just wait this kind of stuff out :)

Normally I'd agree, but these posts have been up for over 2 months. The fact they haven't entered in the top 200 shows there is an issue. These keywords are fairly low comp, I'd expect a brand new domain to be in the top 50/60

Something definitely is fucked up with Google, 3 independent websites doesn't show for (almost) anything, brand new domains and while I did not expect to crush it, at least should have some impressions for the keywords, but nada. Nothing. Everything is indexed, and has been for weeks.

Sounds like the same problem I have - things are indexed but don't rank for any keywords. I can't for the life of me figure it out.
