    I use to own a wordpress site which was 7 years old, PR3, and I had no problems adding articles to the site and ranking them in google. I sold this site and now im trying to build up traffic to my other site.

    My other site is also a wordpress blog which is also 7 years old but a PR1. Im having issues to rank pages in this site. I have added 2 new articles and I am trying to rank them in google.

    Im using the same methods that I used for my first site to rank pages but im having no luck with this site?? When I do a search in google %keyword% the article does not show up in the top 1000 results (Which it should do as its a keyword with very little competition) But the home page of my domain ranks position 60 for this keyword (Which I dont want)

    if I search in google for

    site : domain name %keyword%

    the url comes up 1st. Any ideas why it is not showing up in a normal search in google ??
