I've been reading through these forums for a few weeks now, and I have learned a TON! I decided to finally register so I can say Hi and start contributing to the community.
I have a question for you. I have a wordpress blog that is about 6 months old with a total of about 30 posts. Over the last couple months, I started targeting a specific keyword that gets about 4K exact monthly global searches and a somewhat weak competition. I built a post structured like this:
mysite (dot) com / my-keyword-title-of-post (example URL)
<h1> My Keyword: Title of Post </h1> (Example title structure of my post)
<h2> Official My Keyword </h2> (This is actually IN the post Bolded and underlined)
Then in the body of the post, I have a keyword density of close to 3% and italicize and/or bold the keyword throughout. All 100% unique content.
I also have the keyword in meta description. Keyword is all over the place including: URL, H1 Tag, Title, H2 Tag, Meta Description and a has a solid keyword density.
I then started writing similarly structured posts but with different post titles. So the new Post titles look like this:
<h1> My Keyword: Different Post title </h1>
I have about 3-4 different posts with the same keyword in the title, H1, H2, URL, Meta description, keyword density. (Obviously the actual post title is different, and the post content is unique to each post title).
Each of these posts has started climbing up the G ranks for that keyword (17, 24, 25, and one farther back). I've been wanting to create more posts with this structure as this keyword is one of my categories and a serious part of my website.
My thought process was to try to rank my site for that keyword, but I have since been hearing that it's not your SITE you should be ranking, it's your PAGE.
Am I going about this wrong? If I make more posts with that keyword all over of the place, will it have a negative impact on my post that is ranked 17 and climbing? I don't want my new posts to hurt my other posts for that keyword.
BTW, This is a growing blog that I continually post to with adsense, CB ads, and Amazon links sprinkled throughout my posts. It isn't like a 5 page Amazon site with a main money page.
I'd love to hear recommendations and suggestions. Thanks for your help!
