    Hi,

    I'm new here. I hope I post in the right section of the forum.

    Please is someone here to tell me why this page
    hxxp://www uhdwallpapers.org/p/ultra-hd-wallpapers-3840x2160.html
    is ranked after these keywords 'hd wallpapers (3rd page), 4k wallpapers (1st page), ultra hd wallpapers (1st page)' instead of the root hxxp://www uhdwallpapers.org/

    The problem is only in Google. In all other search engines the root domain shows instead of that page. (not necessarily in exactly that page results as in google, but in other engines it shows the root link)

    That page is not bad, but the root domain is updated twice a week and honestly I would like to appear instead of that page.

    Thank you for any feedback from you guys!

    Over optimization man. Your desired page ranks due to having "too many keywords" or "trying to hard to target certain keyword". ;)

    Optimize your site and you will see results,

    I hear this a lot but I tend not to see any evidence for it in the data... Take the keyword games for example:

    Number of times a keyword is used never seems to hurt a page... When you get into the terms like DUI attorney the counts get into the thousands. Still never seems to be the problem.
