    Hi,

    My website was this week in google on # 5 and #6
    The main page was on #6 and a subpage was on # 5

    So the sub site ranking better then the main site on same keyword.

    What happend today is that the main site droped to # 29 and the subsite is stil on # 5

    I do not understand how this works and why the main site drops to #29.

    If someone could explain this to me would be nice.

    Thanks for reading and for your time to share your info.

    Regards

    Thanks a lot for helping.

    Martin

    Its almost like google finds one of your pages more relevant then the other page and is ranking the more relevant page without you even having to backlink it.

    Just keep writing related content and internally linking it to the page you want to rank. Google will get it figured out eventually.

    No problem Martin:)

    This is going to sound WH, but it is not meant to be.

    Just write good quality articles that are close to wikipedia standard and then put that content on your site in a category that is meant for that particular genre or topic. Then put a link on that page (it doesnt really matter where) in the text is probably best, and link to the page you want to rank. Just keep writing these articles and putting them in that Cat. and linking to the page you want to rank and before long, that page will be killing it in the serps. Its the Siloed site idea really. Also make sure the keyword is in the meta title and description of the page you are targeting.

    Cheers:)

    Hi RealEcon,

    That was really helpfull thanks a lot for the info.

    And i think that is all i can do at the moment, the website has more backlinks than the #1 site in google, so i really do not now why i do not get the #1 position, maybe this is the reason. I hope i get a better rank now and make it to the #1.
    I really need that #1 position and if i got it, i will let you now and i will send you a beer or cup of coffee, up to you :)
    Cheers and have a good week-end

    Hi txhepoker,

    Thanks for you reply.

    You mean building backlinks to the cats or deeplinking in the website?

    I did check the website from #1 to #3 they all have less backlinks then my site, and they do not have content at all (it are webshops) and they only have a view intern links)
    The keyword in not competive, only 1600 exact searches a month.

    Regards
    Martin

    Hi Martin,

    I dont really know how to explain this. It is really best when deep truths are found at an individuals own pace, so if you dont get this now, dont worry you will soon. It will all fall into place:)

    Basically, backlinks are a mirage in Googles current algo. Its why everyone gets so many different results from using backlinks right now. So dont worry about your competitors backlinks, concentrate on creating lots of detailed content, that links to the page you want to rank. And optimize the meta title and description on all pages.

    You, along with everyone else will start to understand the current algo very soon, and you will be amazed at how easy it is to rank once your old perception of SEO is broken:)
