    Advice to help ranking on a single keyword


    Hi there,

    Just wondering what efforts can I do to increase the ranking of my website. I am currently number 3 under the keyword "bin collection cork" on google.ie

    I understand they have older websites, but they have terrible websites. I have updated the meta descriptions/titles/keywords throughout the website to try compete.

    I appreciate any advice.

    Thanks,

    CJ.

    And even internal links with those keywords can help. Build more content on your site showcasing "bin collection cork".

    Just a side note, the keywords meta tag ... I would recommend you remove those from your site altogether. No search engine, meaning Google and Bing, etc use that meta tag anymore for seo purposes. All you are doing is helping your competition by letting them know your targeted keywords.

    Oh really, I never heard of that before. So you are saying to remove the keywords I am hoping to rank for?

    The keyword tag does nothing. Both Google and Yahoo/Bing/MSN announced long ago that they do not use it.

    You should read The Sticky for Meta Description, keywords, keyword density, and title tags

    I am specifically meaning this line of code....
    Code:
    <meta name="keywords" content="cheapest waste collection in cork, waste collection in waterford and cork, waste bin collection, bin charges, refuse collection, pay as you go bin collection, bin collection cork, bin collection waterford, recycling, cheap skip hire, junk removal">
    Because of the language barrier, I don't want you removing keywords from your "CONTENT" ! That would be a mistake and not what I meant.

    The backlinks needs to come from authority websites if you want any higher ranking. You need methods like guest post and get the backlinks from .gov or edu websites.

    Hundreds of near-identical pages certainly won't be helping.

    Internal Linking structure and strong backlinks i.e from high authority sites will help you out.
