    Google Vs Yahoo


    Hi,

    I want to tell you my case bacause making a search on google I almost killed my self.

    I am ranking in some words in google and in yahoo in good positions, but I want to tell you about a specific word.
    I rank first for a two word key word in yahoo and I get hits from it. I got there by accident because I was persuing this word on google.

    The word is on my title one time and the title contains exactly 57 caracters. The word is not on the domain. The word is 2 times in my meta description and it contains exactly 205 caracters. I now the number for this is 160, but I dont know if this is affecting me. The word is a number of times in the meta key words, wich no one gives unless it affects density, am I right? The key word dont overlap 300 caracters.

    The density of the word including Meta, alts and title is 5.06%. As I know the ideal density is 7%, am I right?
    I give free stuff online related about the word and I have good text related about the word. My site is PR 4 and googledance shows 20 back links to my site from where I stand. I have a good number of back links below PR 4 with the exact word on them, inlcuding internal links.

    Until now you must be asking yourselves, so what?
    Well the thing is making a search I found out my site is ranking for that word on the page 35 on google, exactly on the 352nd position. Its on the damn north pole.

    For some time I have thought my sites doesnt rank for that word because I am not an authority site. The fact is I am not.

    Here is what bothers me most. On the sixth page for the same term there is a site ranking 68th position. He has PR 0 in that subdomain. The main domain doesnt even exist. There is a we have moved text and thats it. Googledance shows no back links for that site and non back links for the main domain.
    And it surelly is not an authority site. He doesnt have meta description, key words or text on his site conserning the term. He does have the word 1.5 times in his title with exactly 38 caracters. At least that is the last title google picked, because the one they have now doesnt have the word in it. The word is not on his domain.

    The google density tool doesnt even show a density for that word on his site. He doesnt give free stuff. All is charged and redirected to other sites.

    Both mine and his are adult sites wich I am allowed to mention here as I was prohibited once. The term is non porn. IT is more of an authority term. Like scientific term. Lets say its g-spot, wich is not. G-spot is not a porn term, it is more of a term for wich sites ranking could be kind of medical. Well my word is exactly the same case.

    So why the hell is this guy on 6th and I am on 35th pages????????????????????????????????

    I would be happy if that guy would be on the 35th, but he is not. He is beating the **** out of me and all the fact point at me at least getting better rankings than him. I dont ask for the 1st or second page. I just wonder what the hell is wrong with google?

    Do you know what is it?

    Appreciate any repply.

    Regards,

    Andy

    PS: What is wrong with digitalpoint.com? Isnt it supposed to show the first 999 results for a given word? I had to do all this by hand.

    Ah I didnt know it was the first 200. Thanks for the articles I can use many infos there.

    I forgot to tell you my site has the key words in H1, H2 and H3. Also in bold. I have the robots file and this: <META NAME="robots" CONTENT="index, follow">

    Did you read my full post? It seems like you didnt.

    In the first line I tell I rank first and in other positions for some words. I dont consider myself a newbie, but I do have a lot to learn.

    I would appreciate more specific answeres and people reading all my post.

    Thanks anyway.
