    Hi there! I ranked my site 1# in google in just 2 days. It is pretty amazing.
    However what is not so amazing is i ranked for the wrong keyword.lol

    Example.

    I wanted to rank for "book worm". But my site ranked for "bookworm".

    "book worm" has 50,000,000 exact searches a month, while "bookworm" only has 500,000 searches a month.

    "book worm" competition is 6,090,000,0000 while "bookworms" only has 226,000,000

    My domain was bookworm.net. an exact match to my keyword. Obviously you can not have a space in the domain name.

    The keyword does have spaces written on the site and in the title.

    I have not made any backlinks on my own yet.

    So where did it go wrong?

    are you sure you are ranking?
    try clearing your cache and history and log out from google and see if you are ranking

    LoL guys. The keyword was an example. Not giving it away for obvious reasons. I just wanted to know if anyone has any information about the spaces in ranking. I would really like to rank for the keyword without spaces.

    Does anyone have advice about this?

    Yeah sure, i´m about too. But my site is not even ranked at all on the same keyword with spaces. That´s why i´m frustrated. How come i managed to rank 1# on the other on without any backlinks at all?

    I guess it will be wiser if you could just change or update the content writing with the wrong keyword. However, the wrong may not be happened by any one, rather it may cause if some one else trying to get rank for this keyword; but your domain name has exact match with the keyword so you will lead in this case.

    It's called the Google Honeymoon, when your new content has an temporary artificial boost in the SERPS, this period can last up to 2 weeks. Wait 2 weeks and then we're talking, no real reason to get excited after 2-3 days.

    I'd say that you've done nothing wrong and that you've got a very good start. Give the site backlinks for the keyword combination that you are looking for and over time you may rank well for it... (depends on the competition for the desired keyword combo of course).

    I think you did nothing wrong - sometimes websites just don't rank. It's now time to give up and start working on other projects. But just to be safe, try building at least one backlink to your site. Also, 50 million exact monthly searches is too little, there is no point in ranking for such a low-volume keyword.
