Without any results whatsoever, I kept plowing along. I am targeting literally one of THE HARDEST search terms possible. Here's what I'm targeting:

"Celebrity News and Gossip"

I haven't even ranked in the top 100 in Google for 2months, yet I continued to publish 10-15 daily articles. All unique, all 300+ words, all with relevant images and optimized for my readers.

Today, I checked Google. I'm there on the third page for "Celebrity News and Gossip" on Google.com. I didn't believe it..

I loaded up two web proxies, and it's correct. I'm now ranking third page for it, roughly 25th..

I feel absolutely amazing. My posts now rank high for search terms such as "Kristen Stewart Pregnant" and my base URL is getting somewhere.. Guess I'll stick at it!

    Excellent!!

    I would suggest to share your site on Facebook and Twitter if you haven't done so far. It will have a great impact.

    Do you get much traffic from page 3?

    Yes, the more content and more regularly you add content to your site, the higher you'll rank, and you'll find your backlinks become a lot more effective too..

      I'm not familiar with this effect of new content causing your backlinks to become more effective - can you point me to some evidence for this because I'd really like to know more.

    I only hope that you continue to excel. No doubt the niche which you have chosen is one of the hardest. But keep working on it like you are doing and you will reach.

    Also I have noticed social media really goes well with this niche like facebook and twitter. I am sure you should use them for your benefits.

    Well done on the hard work. Keep in mind that your primary keyword phrase only gets 320 exact GMS, so you need to keep working on your long tail phrases.

    Congrats for your hard work and achievement mate, though why do you focus so much on search engine traffic for that particular niche? I'd think you'd have a much easier time driving traffic through social media since your topics are very suitable for social traffic.

    Congrats!


    But you have to ask yourself that when you reach page one, are your visitors going to just bounce off your site?
    Because if they do, your rankings will not stick for long...

    While the search term doesn't get much traffic, I'm much more focused on getting results from search engine traffic on latest search trends such as Kristen Stewart Pregnant.

    I'm also getting roughly 3-5k visitors per day. I would say 2K is from search, 3k from social media.

    More greese to your elbow, what I can say is that keep the fire burning.

    Diversify your anchors, links and use do & no follow.

    The most difficult stage of SEO is not the easy terms, medium or difficult keywords but out ranking the first 10 sites on Google. Within a couple of month of good BL you should be way up 100.

    Cheer

    Hi OP,

    Great results - but I'm a tad confused. Why are you trying to rank for the low search longtail (celebrity news and gossip) and not (Kristen Stewart Pregnant) etc. There is really no point trying to get the mentioned long tail when it doesn't generate any traffic. You have M9.3 exact search competitors on the long tail - for what? 390 unique visits/months. Imagine you get to #2 for this, you still only end up with something like 40-50 clicks only. The add conversion of say 5% and you get 2-3 "sales" which ever that would be - CPA/Ads/Aff etc.

    Now, [Kristen Stewart Pregnant] is a whole different story with exact local US of 5,400/month but here you also have different competition: 359,000 exact SERP (great) and 2,500 in title comp. (excellent). So this looks like a good target but.......

    Bigger questions - do you want to monetize? How? If Adsense - tough luck. The KSP long tail has 0.1 CPC and no advertiser competition.

    Give it a thought.

    Good luck to you. It's always great to see when hard labor really begins to pay off!

    Awesome. I hope you see an uptick in traffic with being on the 3rd page.

    Hopefully within time you can creep up even higher up.
