    Hey guys,

    I've worked on a football streaming site for ages and for my main keyword its been stuck at position 15 for months. I've done directory submissions, article submissions, scrapebox, xrumer, added content etc etc

    Can't get it to page 1, i'm starting to think about abandoning the project. If anyone can help me get it there or if I can even pay someone to get it there I'd appreciate it.

    I'm in the same boat... got from page 12 to page 2 in 2 months, but for the last 3 have been stuck there

    Horribly frustrating

    Build up better backlinks to your buffer sites that link to your main site. Make sure the majority of your backlinks get indexed also. People often make the mistake of assuming their backlinks are indexed and counted. I try to create anywhere from 2-5 levels of backlinks pointing back to my site. I dominate SERPs doing this.

    It's just one keyword you are hedging all your bets on? Are there some long tail keywords you cna also work on? What's does the competition have over you? Is it authority, i.e. backlinks and age?

    Is it a .com .net .org or .info? I will never buy another .info domain, had the same problem, the mofo wouldn't move up.

    Thanx guys sorry been busy. Keyword is watch live football in the uk google. Not competitive at all in US one. I've got 14,000 links in webmaster tools and im at position 15. The other sites have google directory listings which may be the deciding factor. I'm in dmoz but not been added to the google one yet. Got some traffic from smaller keys but I'm also after live football online which i'm page 2 and watch football online which im also page 2.

    I believe Jericho is talking about link pyramids (correct me if i'm wrong jericho)

    Look them up :) pretty much you just blast sb and xr links at web2.0 sites (articles and stuff) to give them more juice and point those at your site.

    After awhile google looks at you as a trusted site.

    I've had this,you need better quality links and add more content.Add a new page and put some info,football scores,match previews etc.
    I took the risk of actually changing the template and it worked page 1 !

    It's frustrating but you'll get there.As stated get some links to your 2nd and 3rd stage links.
    It's almost like google wants to see how much you want the first page.
    Don't give up some great advice above.

    gotta get some high quality links in the mix. in my experience xrumer and scrapebox type links can only take you so far in competitive niches. gotta buy some high pr home page/run of site links.

    I think we've all been here at one point or another. You gotta stick with it as you are "2 feet from gold" it would be a shame to abandon/sell the site and have someone else dig just a couple feet and strike it rich. Keep pushing, you'll get there.
