I made my first site a year ago. It was an affiliate site with some unique content based on the products I was promoting. At the time, I had no clue that I needed to pick keywords to rank for but it got lucky enough that the domain I chose turned out to be a keyword phrase with 1,300 monthly searches and 25,000 competing sites haha. I have been manually building links, and scrapebox blasting, but I don't know why I haven't been able to move from spot #4 for over 3 months now. I have the meta tags in, description with keyword phrase, and phrase in the articles I published on the site when I created it. Am I not doing something I could be?
