I have an older page on my site that does not get good ranking. How can I move it up in the SERPs. My site is a retail site so I don't want to get inbound links in the classic way. I do want to get it to rank well for it's main keyword.

Appreciate the help...

      Hi all,

      I am giving some important tips to achieve better ranking:

      -Always add unique META descriptions to your pages.
      -Search-engine friendly urls will help you boost your page rankings if you use them the right way.
      -It is important to understand that a lot of SEO has to do with individual page optimization. You won't automatically have great rankings for all pages even if you have it for one. However, if you approach SEO at a holistic level, incorporating it in everything you do, the sum of all the factors will improve your general site visibility.
      -Indexing allows your website to be added to the search engines and is the first step to climbing their ranking positions.
      -Start building backlinks to your website - these are the in-bound or external links that point to your site -- by adding its url to relevant online directories, swapping links with partners.

    Before going to struggle for high rankings you must analyze your site and figure out the spots where your site should be to get the relevant visitors. The page is a retail store now the question arises whether this store is dedicated to one region or its targeted clients are all over the world. If you are targeting a specific region than you need to target the local search engine so that you can drive relevant web traffic. To get the high ranking you must fulfill the requirements which search engines have from the sites which tends to rank high. You should Google the requirements because you need to study them in detail

    I'd suggest optimize your content (On-page SEO) for the specific keyword. Keep the keyword density as 2-3 %. Since it's a retail page, I'd suggest that you hire someone writing PR and submit to PR directories. It works.

    Without seeing your site, and knowing certain factors about the page in question, it's harder to give specifics.

    However, I'll just go ahead and assume it's in need of general help.

    1. Check Your Content

    Any expert would tell you that it's critical to know your content is fully optimized by the use of keyword richness. Your keyword should be mentioned between 3-5% within your article.

    Also, using relevant synonyms is also a good practice.

    Your article should be around 500 words.

    2. Use H1 Tags

    Use your keyword in the title of the page as an H1 Heading. This helps the search engines quickly determine what your page is all about.

    3. Site Map

    The use of a site map is powerful and helps give relevance to your internal links for both Google and visitors.

    4. Page and Site Updates

    Regular activity for your pages and site in general is a good idea. Google recognizes this as a valuable contribution for the information it is looking for. Fresh content and unique content seem to stimulate Google bots when crawling your pages.

    5. Links

    Both inbound and external links are also key. Be sure you are linking to valid and relevant sites, and not just any old site that barely relates to your niche. In fact, it's better to have 20 relevant links, than to have 200 links to sites that have no correlation to your information and content.

    6. Socialize

    It's amazing how much traffic you can generate just by getting social. A Facebook fanpage can support you with traffic, free traffic, if you simply add a comment, picture, response, input of any relevant kind to your fans.

    Ezine Articles linking back to your site is a great method. That includes any of the reputable article marketing sites--but this takes time and effort, but doesn't have to be your time. This strategy can be farmed out/outsourced to a writer for a minimal fee.

    Just a few thoughts for you.

    Basic things you can do now to improve your search engine rankings on Google, Yahoo, and Bing are:
    Title tags - every page needs a unique and descriptive title tag.
    On-page content - every page needs unique, informative information that is easily read by spiders and humans alike.

    Freshness of content - every site needs to keep their site regularly updated with fresh content that will bring humans and spiders back for more.

    Start building backlinks targeted to your sub-page and have the anchor texts as the keyword you want to target it for. Your main domain and your sub-page both will benefit from the backlinks to your page.

        This may take some time and all you need is more patience. I know, the end result will be worth the wait. Try building back links that should be related to your sites or blogs. And make sure to keep your articles updated and with top quality contents. Use unique and original content and not some copy-paste style of updating your articles.

    When it comes to this matter, this is will take quite a long time since you don't want to put inbound links to your site. So I think that you have to rely on your site's content and proper on page optimization must be done.

    Just do some proper Onpage SEO, quality contents and have authority one way backlinks to your site/page. Keep building the links slowly, remember to mix the links with high PR, low PR, do-follow and no-follow, have to look everything natural in the eyes of search engines. Only that way you can get better and even high rankings.
