I'm chasing a keyword with 2900 searches per month and 590 in USA, and my site had this keyword in title and adress. I'm having this keyword in about 12 posts. I'm only on 4th page of Google.
I'm also having 2-3 long tail keywords with 50 - 200 searches per mounth. My keywords are very poor at CPC (I didn't know that when I chose them 2 years ago).
I saw that my competitors had between 0 - 40 backlings to their page where they had my keyword. Most of them have 0, but they all rank better than me. Also most of them had more than 3000 backlinks on their entire domain.
I don't think that I have a big competition for this keyword. I only want to beat them and be in the first 5 results, and then I want to make other websites with profitable keywords, not like this.
What should I do next to climb in SERP?
