Writing content on long-tail keywords but Google webmasters says they don't even show up ANYWHERE on the SERPS for the keyword I wrote. I'm very good about writing SEO friendly content.

I have 0 back links as of now, is that my problem.

As well is scrapebox a must have should I get it or is there something else?

Thank you

    There are situations whereby the weight of a site that has high DA and PA across multiple pages can pass on the weight to a new page created targeting a long tail keyword, if that was the case you would have already seen in in your Analytics.

    If not, then you have to build backlinks to either that page to rank for the keyword in question and build the weight of your site in general to benefit in the long term for many longtail keywords

      I second AzzamS's comment. We need more context to really understand what's going on here. If your domain already has high authority and your new pages are not showing up in search results even for exact-match queries, then there may be an issue with your infrastructure or information architecture. If you have low domain authority and you know for sure your infrastructure and info architecture are keyed in, then you need to put some effort into getting your content out there on the web.

      Hope this helps. Hit me up with any questions.

      Okay, I'll definitely try to guest post in some niche related sites and check out your links about seo, thanks!

      One question, for guest posts, do I have to write a new article for the site I'm posting on, or can I publish an article I already posted on MY site?

      Oh and also, are backlinks from blog comments bad now?

      Yeah I think my site has low DA and PA as it is fairly new, I figured I'd see some small results without backlinks.

    So when people say get my content out there do they mean backlinks or also guest blogging? With guest blogging can I take articles that I previously posted on my site or do I need fresh ones that I havnt posted on my site?

      For best results a fresh well written article that engages the reader. Quality content is very important. Google can easily see the metrics of the amount of time users spend interacting (reading your content)

      I wouldnt suggest scrapebox, especially if you only have one site/and or are new to SEO. If i had to pick an automated system it would be GSA because it can post across more platforms.

      But I would again only use this to send links to tier 1 and 2 properties you create around your website ie: youtube videos/wordpress blogs/press releases.

      Not directly pointing at your website.

        Thanks for answering my question, yeah I'll have to write fresh content, it would hurt my site because of duplicate content if I didn't so!

        What I would use scapebox is to find high PR blogs that are dofollow that I could either leave my link on with a comment or even a guest post, is even that worth it?

        I'm struggling for backlinks!!

          Honestly comment backlinks are pretty much the lowest backlinks that you can get. And could end up hurting you if they are spammed out by the hundred with scrapebox. Instead maybe try hunting down some links manually. And build up an actual active profile in the community/forum that you join.

          You wont get penalized for that..

          Then if you want to still use scrapebox or GSA instead hit the profiles that you have built up in those forums with the 100s and 1000s of scrapebox links.

          This is known as the Parasitic strategy method.

    For guest blog posting you have to write new original articles and you cannot reuse the already posted articles in your site.

    Blog comments, if done properly and manually in low obl niche relevant sites are not bad, but it is not effective as earlier. However you always have the benefit of traffic, if you post meaningful and thoughtful comments in your niche relevant forums and websites, as people always tend to see the website to which the links is leading to, if the comment is really helpful for them.

    "Okay, I'll definitely try to guest post in some niche related sites and check out your links about seo, thanks!

    You need some authority to rank. Just "SEO content" is not enough. If you don't have authority...aka links, Google won't show them.

    You need to have some authority links from a relate website. You may make friend with other bloggers and add link to their post sometime, they will link back your website soon. Otherwise, you can use some SEO services as:
    -Bookmarking at high PR bookmarking site( >PR 6)
    -Write Press release and submit it.
    -Guest post
    You may not see the results immediately, the ranking grow up from 1 months to 3 months with medium keywords.

    Basing your business model on keywords is risky and leaves you vulnerable to Google updadtes. Make sure your content is as close to 100% unique as possible.
