    Getting to page 1 Google


    Hi

    So you've done your keyword research, got awesome content, submitted sitemaps and have started building back-links. Anyone have any idea how long it takes to get to page 1 of Google when your keywords are extremely highly competitive? Let's say you're only using 1 to 2 keywords tops per page/post

    Thanks

    You won't get there by building back links.

    wouldn't you say quality backlinks build trust and increase traffic hence increase rankings?

    Unfortunately you cannot say you will or will not get to the first page.

    Exactly how competitive are the keywords. For example if Wikipedia is ranking for your keyword then it is unlikely you will top them because of the amount of authority the site has.

    If you site has a good overall authority then it is likely you can rank on the first page of Google, but the question is, how awesome is your content and what kind of backlinks are you building?

    The only thing you can really do is try and see what happens... it can take up to 2 or 3 weeks for Google to decided how to rank the page.

    I would do the following:

    1) Make sure you awesome content is not just loaded with text. Break up the text by adding images (with keyword on the file name and alt tag). Add information using bullet lists (allows the user to scroll). Add some graphs to back up the data you are providing. Add headers and sub headers (H1, H2s, H3s etc).... essentially break up the article so it is easier to consume and that in term will keep the user longer on your page.
    Also, what every keyword(s) you are targeting, try and add related words to the keywords (LSI)

    2) When building backlinks make sure you get links from:
    a) Authority websites
    b) Sites with traffic
    c) Sites that are related / relevant to your niche.
    You will probably discover you will need less of these links to rank as they are authoritative.

    I think that would be a good start

    I believe the content from an SEO perspective is good. Keywords added in titles, meta description, images with alt tags etc. Assuming this is correct then I'm assuming the only difference between myself and my competitor is the Page and Domain Authority and the amount of traffic flowing the page. Besides building backlinks a sharing on social media, are there any other strategies?

    This is something basic you have done to get started with. Still, a long way to build brand awareness, create engaging content, share it to the desired target audience and much more to do.

    For the page 1 google Apply best SEO strategies and start on the first day. The first step is keyword research, which is main and very effective to get on 1 page. Try to select highly searched and low competitive keywords.
    The second step is required best user-friendly, engaging and meaningful content which is not copied.
    Now work on the metadata, here also be careful about metadata. And at the end sitemap. Finally, start to building backlinks.
    According to SEO strategy Above steps are definitely works and you get your result on the Google's first page.

    Yes, but you can't build quality backlinks.

    It is so difficult to compete.

    Previously, like 3 months ago I was ranking #3 for a certain keywords. All of sudden, the keyword and my page are ranking #9 which is a big drop.
    I am aware that Google has many ranking factors, but seriously does anyone have an idea how I can improve. Because apparently I have done something right but other pages are not sitting still...

    I have checked the Keyword MOZ checker, and the DA & PA of my page is much higher than many other pages ranking for that specific keyword. When I check the domain linkings, my page has so much more than the other ones. So how can I improve. According to a SEO specialist I have spoken to, it might be the quality of the backlink. I have taken good care on which page I wanted to have a backlink on, so I can't imagine that that is a big factor.

    Any idea's??

    The spam you've been building that you call backlinks is failing you?

    Well, I have been using some website with good DA & PA but other websites I am competing with have the same mention on these website's so it should affect all of us - which it didn't. And for this certain keyword I am trying to rank, I haven't done anything crazy.

    Any idea's?

    I do not have the answer to your question, because I do not have any factual data in hand to drive conclusions but this is one thing you should ask yourself and answer it out of the box.

    Assuming the only difference between yourself and your competitor is the page and domain authority why should a search engine rank me higher than your competitor?

    The Answer is none.... Sry to tell you that...

    Give SEs a good reason to rank you higher by answering questions in a better way, by providing more data, provide a better UX, etc... and then you will stand a chance. On the other hand if you try manipulate PageRank (because PA and DA are just made up metrics that are not taken into account by Google in any way) then you might see short terms results but will burn you site in the eyes of the big G and you will have lost countless hours of your time for nothing.

    Its not a easy task to get No.1 google rank page. Keeps on update, its a flow of working on to Linkbuilding, Social Sharing, Reviews, Backlinks etc..

    It is not one time process, it is continous process.
