Is it a good thing that I take this domain name in my niche?

jaap replied to thread Is it a good thing that I take this domain name in my niche?

When you've found a correct domain name, check if it's indexed by Google by doing a Google search for “site:www.examplesite.com”. You can also search for “www.examplesite.com” to see how often Google encounters this domain name on other websites. Check if the domain name has a “spam” score. You can check this with the free tool opensiteexplorer.org. The higher the spam score, the greater the chance of inbound links from spam websites. Check in Google if there has been negative publicity around the brand.

No rankings from 6 Months

jaap replied to thread No rankings from 6 Months

It always depends on many factors. You cannot successfully compare one keyword with another that has a good position in the search results. Where one word has only little competition, this can completely differ for another word, so that the approach for ranking will be different.

Quick solutions are often fairytales. Seo is a long road without end.

my website is rank 25.how to rank top 5

jaap replied to thread my website is rank 25.how to rank top 5

At least I can't answer questions that contain so little information. It's like someone asks me, I drive an old Volvo now, how can I drive a Maserati?

In general, you rank higher if you offer more value to your visitors than the competition. Because there are hundreds of ranking factors, it is impossible to give a comprehensive answer to your question. This requires a thorough analysis of the website, keywords, competition, technology, etc.

No rankings from 6 Months

jaap replied to thread No rankings from 6 Months

Your "supplements to boost immune system" is in 3 alt tags only. Google can consider this as keyword stuffing. Try to add it also in your decscription. and in one H2 tag. If this is the main keyword for the page, add it in your meta tags too. Then link from another page with the exact text to your page. And if possible with some varitions from other pages.

A few backlinks from relevant high authority domains will do the rest.

Why is My article not ranking?

jaap replied to thread Why is My article not ranking?

Compare with your competitors. F.e.

https://theinterviewguys.com/low-stress-jobs/

has 1294 backlinks from 56 domains (DR 56). Your site has 21 backlinks from only 13 domains (DR26).

More relevant back links are needed for sure.

Promising a client to rank soon is a challenge if your competitors are for long time ranking on a keyword. So use also an internal linking strategy to speed up things.

Why is My article not ranking?

jaap replied to thread Why is My article not ranking?

Try to improve your technical seo. Lighthouse gives points to improve.

With Google's mobile first in mind f.e. your CLS is much to high. UX is a major ranking factor, so improve your performance first.

Can PageRank drop significantly after server error?

jaap replied to thread Can PageRank drop significantly after server error?

Can PageRank drop significantly after server error? Yes, it's the perfect recipe for a 100% bounce rate.

A signal for Google your content isn't what people are looking for. So your rankings will drop.

Recovery takes serious time. Change the publication date of some articles to today. Giving 1 or 2 articles a lift in this way every day can contribute to a faster recovery.

Tried Everything, Google Will Not Index WordPress Site, (DNS Issues Highly Likely)

jaap replied to thread Tried Everything, Google Will Not Index WordPress Site, (DNS Issues Highly Likely)

You told it shows up around page 10. So it's indexed.

A new domain, 94 days old with a DA 1 and a PA 1 needs time and work. Don't expect fast results.

Ohter simple sites you made, rank probably beter because of less competition.

It all depends on many factors.

In your https://gro-usa.com/page-sitemap.xml are 2 links. Your https://gro-usa.com/post-sitemap.xml is empty.

Add more informative, high-quality content for you visitors. So there is a reason to index your site. And relevant back links will do the rest.

There's a tweet about your issue from John Mu. https://twitter.com/JohnMu/status/1387874087045844996?s=20

Unfortunately there's a bug there in Search Console. When we we show "Failing / Insufficient HTTPS coverage" in the Page experience report, that can just mean we don't have the full data (instead of saying "not enough data" we incorrectly say "failing"). We're fixing it.

jaap replied to thread SEO - new webshop

Start with proper meta descriptions. Back links should be of high authority and relevant. For a new site you can start with adding your link to some good directories. Start blogging about your products. Use H1 tag only once per page. What's the bounce rate? Use f.e. hotjar the see what your visitors do and don't Don't try to sell, but to inform visitors. etc, etc...

jaap replied to thread Page is not mobile friendly error

Content wider than screen, make it smaller. Maybe images? Text too small to read, make the font 16px to read easy on mobile Clickable elements too close together, move them further apart.

It would be easier if you provide us with an url.
