    There are hundreds of thousands of pages for even the most obscure search queries. Just because you mention a word does not mean you will rank in the top 20 pages. That isn't how this works. Read about the basics of SEO if you actually want to see results.

    If you have 18-pages indexed then you are in Google. 5-weeks isn't that long. To be honest, who is searching for abulo? Is your website in anyway related to the intent for that term? I think you might just be misunderstanding how Google works and how websites rank. You do not just get to rank because the word is in your domain.

  • Shane Bellone replied to thread Google increased length of snippets

    I would bet longer snippets is actually an indicator of diminishing the number of links per page. I imagine they will continue working to drive down the number of sites on the 1st page as low as they can without detracting from the search experience or lowering ad revenue. In fact, removing organic results will likely increase ad clicks thereby increasing their revenue. I would imagine domain names will eventually be removed too and replaced with some type of related brand name. I would expect the search results to more closely resemble an app store styled page focusing on the reputation of the author and the quality of the content.

    If Google noticed the content will be pushed down. It will not completely disappear though. Once everything is fixed, resubmit your sitemap and request a full index. They will start moving up again once Google is aware everything is working properly again. Google luck.

  • Shane Bellone replied to thread Which service is the best value for the money? Ahrefs vs. Majestic vs. SEMRush

    None of those are needed unless you are providing SEO consulting services. They do not actually benefit you as a site owner. It is easy to get caught up with cool tools and products but your focus should be placed firmly on creating quality content. You should also focus on building a website that is easy to use and navigate. Focusing on anything but the user indicates that you are looking to make a quick buck without actually earning it. Build with purpose and you will rank. The rest is just noise in terms of sustainability and profitability.

    1. Did you submit your sitemap to Google's Webmaster Tools? 1. What is the status of the sitemap in GWT? 2. How may pages are indexed in GWT? 3. Are there any errors/blocked resources in GWT? 2. How long has the website been active? 3. Are you using any SEO plugins?
