Website is not ranking
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

I am working on a brochure website that isn't ranking in the US

It is an Irish based website targeting USA students looking to go on a summer camp.

It has good backlinks including edu links, speed is good, content is decent.

Anyone got ideas of what I could be missing in order to rank in the US?

Whats the best approach for getting ranked in the US?

The site does not have a physical address anywhere in the US.

Links I have built are US based links

Did you go into Google webmaster tools and tell Google you want to target the USA?

First thing you should have done!

The way you say, including .edu, makes me think you don't know what a good back link is.

A backlink from a .edu domain is good if, and only if, it comes from a page that's got a bunch of good links of its own (or a lot of links from pages on good sites that don't have any backlinks).

The same is true for everything else.

You probably are not ranking because you don't have enough link-juice.

You need more (possibly lots more) of the kind you already have, or a few good ones.

(I am assuming you've done keyword research well.)

Try to purchase a software that does automation. Like autopost to social media sites. Available in jvzoo. There many of them make sure to watch their video sales page telling on the inside of WordPress or how does their plugin works. It tells u on how powerful it is.

I guess in every business there is always investment.

I also look for a 30day money back guarantee just incase if you are not happy they will refund you the money.

Is your website OnPage ok or not? If it ok. Then you create some Good Backlink. I think you will be able to get website rank.

Simply go with website source code and change the duplicate content and place the right keywords and URL, then it is possible to getting the rank.

You might need to do keywords research on the competition level and search volume.

It is the starting point in order to rank. Period.

Best,

Like some have said... I think the type of links that you have aren't as good as you think. So the first thing I would do is familiarize myself with what are considered quality links. I would also make sure that the website doesn't have certain links that are affecting my rankings.

There are many things that are preventing the website from ranking. The keywords you are targetting may be too difficult to rank for, so you might want to make sure you are properly doing keyword research.

For example, I came across this article: https://www.nohatdigital.com/blog/em...ir-experiment/ , he seems to have been able to rank #3 for a keyword in 3 days. Only way that is possible is if proper keyword research is done.

His other post, also on that website might help you out as well: https://www.nohatdigital.com/blog/iterative-seo/

So pretty much make sure that you're doing the right way (not saying you are).

If you have all the backlinks and other stuffs then I do not understand how is possible that your website is not ranked? There is probably something more that you miss on your website since this is the only explanation.

Are targeted keywords locally represent or not? Kindly tell. May be the keywords are not locally representing the US target market.

I am an SEO expert and specialise in getting web sites on page 1 for the past 10 years. Sounds like your domain authority is not noteworthy yet and unique content may be not good enough from googles criteria.

List your company web site on other high volume traffic web sites and have people visit your directory listing then click into your web site. Over a period of time, this will give you domain authority.

there are also 200+ SEO requirements you need to meet or near enough meet to get listed correctly. Having a exact match domain name will help. Having 10+ domain names/websites with similar topics in the title but not exact unique content will sure to help.

I think you should do on-page and off-page seo for increase ranking on a website and if you only target US for ranking then u should also do off seo on US Local website that can helps you to gain ranking.

Are you optimizing for long tail keyword? If not - this may be the reason why the competition in search terms is hard to beat. Don't you mind sharing the website actually? It would be much easier to help :)

Well one thing I would say is to make sure the content isn't just "good" but that the content is GREAT.

Then also what do you mean by its an irish based site targeting US students?

How is great content going to be seen when good content is not seen?

Have you used Google Webmaster Tools yet?

It has several tools that youll need to use to get your site ranked.

The most important are the XML map submission, the site ownership verification and the site geotargeting (select USA).

If you attach a blog to your site and keep the info fresh and regularly updated, Google will rank your site.
