Reached 1st Page on Google from 3rd page for HP keyword with one change in content

by richardsonharry 47 replies
Hi friends,

I have just reduced the keyword density by seeing the changes on my keyword ranking.

Now I am very happy to say that I have reached 1st Page on Google for the keyword How to remove dandruff
My blog= Holistic Doctor Online

The changes I have done.
The number of keywords I have removed.

Naturally=2
Dandruff=1

Also removed 2 Tags for which I have not ranked yet.

My blog is just 5 months old and I reached 1st page, So domain age is not important to reach first page.
Also I have very less back links.
page rank=0.

In my case only keyword and content did this.

I think this thread will help new bloggers, because I also learned all this methods through forums.
Try reducing one keyword and see the ranking difference for post which has high keyword density.

Thanks.
If you have any queries post on the comment box, friends.

        exactly google tend to favor local content. thats why when you type google.com on your browser, it automatically redirects to your country's google. For example am from Nigeria if i visit google.com it redirects to google.com.ng.

    Domain history is factor for ranking but the most important is content. If your content for focused keyword is the best-I mean long article, video and images included and outbund links in than you can outrank older websites. One more thing you have to include in article related keywords.

      I agree with you that content is very important but still backlinks plays a major role in seo .

      • But in my case I have very less back-links then how I got ranked on the first page for the keyword How to get rid of dandruff naturally

  • Each blog post has to be search engine optimized.

    Each new blog post title and body of text(H1, H2,H3 & H4) has to have keywords and LSI keywords in it. With the correct balance of both, it's easy to rank on the 1st page of Google.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11145038].message }}
    • Also try to include the keyword on the first para and at the last para to.

    I think article content will be important factors to help you have high traffic and fast index, in addition to the link between the internal and external links are also important factors to help seo to top
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11145042].message }}
    • To get index faster try to share your content on google+ as well as in Reddit.

    Like Yukon said, you are at the bottom of page 2.

    However, this page is a good example to show people that you do not need to have great content to rank a page. The content on that page is pretty bad. It reads horribly, and you still made it to page 2.

        It doesn't matter how much research you do or don't do. Google cannot tell if you researched the article for 3 weeks or just made up the content in an hour.

        My point was that the content would be considered pretty low quality as far as the level of writing is concerned. It is full of grammar mistakes and poor English.

        For those that constantly claim "content is king" and that you need to have great, well-written content to rank, your page shows the opposite.

        The content is poorly written and there is nothing that makes it stand out over any of the other content in the first 3-4 pages of the search results.

        It is a great example of showing that content is not king.

        Kudos for sharing that.

            BS. Grammarly shows a ton of errors, but just because something goes through Grammarly doesn't mean it is grammatically correct or reads well at all.


            And no, I won't point out all of the errors. If you want me to rewrite the article, you will need to pay me.

            The English is broken. I would be careful writing articles in English if it isn't your first language. If that website gave you no errors, then it can't be working properly. I will correct the English for you for free because it bothers me looking at it.

            "Every day our body replaces old cells with new cells. This is seen on the scalp and cells are also shed as flakes regularly. When the cells are shed at a faster rate, it becomes a cosmetic problem and flakes are seen on hair, shoulders and the back like snowflakes. Here we will discuss the causes of and how to get rid of dandruff.

            Causes of Dandruff

            If you have dry Skin or oily skin, don't shampoo enough, or shampoo too much, this can produce dandruff. Chemicals present in hair tonics, shampoos, conditioners, hair oils and hair dyes can produce allergies or hypersensitivity and increase dandruff. Cold climates can also produce dry skin and dandruff. Normally there is bacteria (staphylococcus), fungus (malassezia) and yeast present on the scalp. When the immunity of the person decreases (stress, using steroids etc…), the conditions worsen and produce dandruff. Other conditions like eczema, psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis can also produce flaking.

            Fenugreek

            The best way to get rid of dandruff is to apply fenugreek paste to the scalp.

            Soak 3 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in one cup of water overnight, grind it in the morning, apply the paste over the scalp, then massage the scalp and wash it off after 30 minutes. It is a good hair tonic and keeps the hair silky and smooth. Use this twice a week for the best results.

            Neem leaves

            Neem leaf is a very good natural remedy to get rid of dandruff. Grind a few neem leaves with a little water to make a paste. Massage the neem paste over the scalp and wash it off after 15 minutes. Neem leaf acts as an excellent antibacterial and antiviral agent.

            You can boil neem leaves in water and after it cools down, apply over the scalp and wash it off after 15 minutes.

            I'll do the rest later.

    IMO domain authority is what matters the most, then how well you have optimized your website according to your targeted keyword and how well coded is your website. These are the things to consider these days.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11145208].message }}
    • My domain authority is zero. and I ranked for many keywords on the first page.

      I believe on both content and keyword density.

    Congrats. As for the ranking, Google changes search results like the wind it seems. Although some lock in their page 1 spot for weeks, but it takes a heavy obsession with SEO and community building and relationship building and some sweet, valuable link building to get it done.

    When I had a quick few days on page 1 for "how to submit a guest post" and "how to rank on page 1 of google for a competitive keyword" about 1 year ago, I found how being subtle is one key to nailing down a sweet ranking. Like how you switched things just a wee bit.

      Keyword and content, both are the key to page one.

      without keywords how Google will understand about your page.
      I wrote one article for the company I work
      with the title =Marketing software for startup companies I ranked on 1st position on google.

      The content is not about Marketing software for startup companies but using keyword effectively I ranked first on google.

      Actually in India its on the 10th position now. Not a personalized search, I cleared all my cache and opened with incognito.

        No, you're ranked #21 top of page #3 now while searching from the US.

        Your webpage is dropping in Google Search.

        BTW, when using incognito (Chrome) you have to close every single instance of a Chrome browser or Google will use the history from any browser that is open. You can't have a regular Chrome browser open and then open an incognito (Chrome) without getting personalized SERPs.

        No doubt you're still looking at personalized SERPs.

      No, traffic will never search Google via NCR, they'll use their own ccTLD Google search.

      Google has GEO located servers all over the world, AKA local SERPs.

      Example, you're not going to get all German text webpages while searching Google from Houston Texas.

    great job!! As a content writer I will tell you this: The quality of content on your blog matters the most, you may appear on the first page but if your visitors come and go just like that you will have a high bounce rate and find yourself demoted to "other SERPs"

    Jus make sure that together with your strategic use of keywords, you also provide engaging content that attracts visitors to not only stay but also share the post on their social pages.
