    I am doing my best to make a site rank.
    This site is already more than a year old.
    I am using prestashop so this should be good with SEO.
    I even made some custom adjustements.
    Started creating a link wheal by making blogs that link to each other and also link to my website.

    Al my blogs appear on the 2 page of google with the keyword...
    And my website is no where to be found???? :(

    Could this just be a matter of time.
    I already made a reconsidiration to google and they reviewed it and said they could not find any penalties.

    In google webmaster help there is no suggestion...

    All the blogs I have have unique content so that should not be the case..
    This happend to 2 of my websites.
    I do have 1 who has number 1 with this method!!

    What can be the problem any ideas?

    When you create link piramids, DON'T link the blogs from the link piramid, just do blogs and separately link each one only to your website.

    Don't do interlinking between your web 2.0's piramid

    Have a nice day

    It could be a matter of content, do you have original content (text)? With the latest updates to Google's algorithm they put an emphasis on original content not only for the page but for the website. It also could be that you over optimized for you keyword (built to many links with that anchor) just a thought.

    look at your keywords and competition and go for longer tail keywords 3 words is ideal more narrowed to your sites topic. you probably need to find keywords with less than 100k pages indexed in google to rank. Try to get some high quality back links to your site from related sites. also book mark your pages first to all major sites then bookmark it on your blog last if it is wordpress or blogger.

    I have unique content. I however did use translate for the text and the blogs itself are ranking good but my money site is not to be found...

    I used traffic travis and score for both sites an A+ also used
    WebCEO and this also had nothing to say.

    The keyword I am targeting for is a very low competition keyword phrase.
    Using this method I am ranking number 1 for an even harder keyword...

    How will I know if my website has too much keyword relevance?
    What is a good keyword relevance?

    I used the keyword in the H1 tag, and in the h2 tag.

    Does it matter if an h4 tag is above an h1 tag in the HTML code?
    Because I have that on one of my sites.

    "Could this just be a matter of time."

    I have found that it's a mix of many variables that determine how long it takes a keyword to rank #1. Sometimes it is time, sometimes it is the difficulty rating on the keywords, could be the niche that you are targeting or it might be 100 other reasons.

    Maybe to start out do some checking if anyone has been scrapping your content first and they get indexed before you, this can throw an obvious penalty, even though you are writing original content.

    One site is a webshop where I use dropshipping.
    This automatically pulls in products but also their description.
    Could this be the case?
    Because I am not the only one dropshipping from there.
    So that would be duplicate content.

    But that still does not explain the other domain?

    I already have the domain names in google for more than 1 year.

    The webshop is now hanging on page 5
    And the other site was at position 12 but now it is over 100...

    have you been using the terms in the title and headings of the pages ?

    have you been using the terms on the back link anchor texts ?

    are you using seo module from prestashop or so ?

    I am using the terms in title also in headings and on the pages.

    Not using any SEO modules for prestashop.
