    Ye so i've been SEO'ing for a pretty tough keyword for the past 2 months. Almost there (Middle of page 2) but it's getting harder now. I check my stats everyday and they haven't moved in a while. Links still rolling in slowly so it's patience!

    Thing is i hate having to be patient!

    Anyone else feel this way? I thought i'd setup a thread for people who are patiently waiting for keywords to "pop" into the top 10.

    :cool:

    In my experience, 80% of SEO is keyword research. If you feel like you're hitting your head against a brick wall you might want to go for some less competitive keywords, and then use the money from that to gradually rank for tougher ones.

    Just wait for the monthly algorithm check.

    If you see that you do not like the results then go for a less competitive keyword.

    on the tough competition keywords moving even 1 position up can require lots and lots of work and time

    since you are stuck for a big time, you may try to redo your linkbuilding strategy and see if that will help. Maybe getting few high quality, hig pr/pa/da do follow backlinks can bring in better and faster results

    When there is a strict deadlock, It is better for you to check the whole backlink strategy to make sure everything went well. Because, Big-G is unpredictable, after a long stuck, it might lose the rank too.

    Create more quality backlinks and also keep the ratio in your mind too.

    Sometimes, only one super quality link can change the picture, so you should re-consider your link building strategy. Instead of wasting time in searching for lots of middle quality links, focus on getting "the link" that will change your ranking picture

    Buy some quality posts and keep buying them. The only way from 30 to top is quality links

    Lol are you posting this from the summer of 1999? That monthly algo update stopped being monthly years ago.

    I seriously hope your not offering "secret seo services". Your clients are gonna be -60 before long if you are!

    I'm not worrying just yet. A few more links will do it.


    Well i had to reply to an actual decent reply that wasn't spam!

    Ye it's a pain having all the patience. Still, when it's there i'll be a happy chappy!

    Good luck!

    two months and no movements, it's safe to say that you're doing something wrong if it's a medium to low competition keyword.

    High PR links, link diversity, anchor text diversity, fresh content... Put all chances on your side!

    You are stuck, i think its time to buy few good services. Maybe few guest posts and some high pr homepage links.
