Let me explain this with the sample.
We have a car community in UAE that is totally unique and helpful to people.
Just a while back someone came with "Nissan Altima CVT gear issue" everyone helped her in the right direction and she manages to save 2/3 of the proposed cost from the dealership in 3 pages (20 replies) content size.
Now when we search with the exact title, the result appears as a 2 of 8M results.
Title: Nissan Altima 2013 engine stop issue
Now, this thread has a lot of keywords, that can really help thousands of other people searching for a similar solution but this thread doesn't appear anywhere in those remaining searches. And also surprisingly when searched on google.ae no other UAE based results pop, all from US.
When we have this locally relevant and useful content, why google bots are not showing this....?
On the contrary, as per our recent audit, we have found 60+ long-tail keywords of transmission, CVT, problems etc. that can really help those people with a laser targeted content in UAE.
Now, this is just one of 100's of similar useful content we have that only appear in the exact title search and not on phrase / broad search.
Any help in this regard is highly appreciable. Thanks in advance.
