    Hello,

    I created a brand new domain and put four 1k word articles on the site. After two months the site still has nothing in the search queries field of webmaster tools. The pages have been indexed and it shows keyword information in webmaster tools, but none of the pages are ranking. I even built some blog comments and forum links to try and kick start things but nothing happened. I have no idea whats going on can someone help me figure out what went wrong and how to fix it? Thanks

    Possible issues:
    Fresh Domain
    Partial match domain (something keyword.com)
    Keyword Stuffing (I might have gone a little keyword happy. I removed a lot of keywords, but still no movement/query info)

    First of all keyword stuffing is a really bad idea. It may have worked ten years ago, but not today.
    You probably chose keywords that are too hard for you. Look up your ranking on those keywords - you will probably not be in the top 100.

    Well I didn't really mean to stuff.. I looked at my article on SEOquake to see the percentages and everything was below 1% but I don't think I took everything into account.

    I'm not sure if this counts as stuffing but let me give you an example:
    Keywords:
    Ford - 12
    Ford car - 2
    Ford Mustang - 9
    Mustang burnout- 3
    cheap ford mustang - 1
    Mustang - 10
    Ford Shelby - 2

    A lot of those keywords have reoccurring words, but SEOquake acted like it was a really low percentage overall. No particular word was over 1%

    I've found that the more frequently you update with quality content the more you get those search queries in webmaster tools. 4k words on a fresh domain isn't going to magically start getting query hits. Not unless you do a helluva lot of backlinking.
