    Don't go for target keywords just by staring seo in beginning, go for long tail keywords then after some months google will take your target keywords

    Whew! Maybe your site does not deserve better rankings that the other sites.

    Sounds like the backlinks are not the issue. Spend more time working on the other priorities of SEO.

    Hi deaddiction;
    You say use "long tail keywords" do you mean several words like "kids bedding sets", if not, could you please give an example! I would love to chat about keywords if you don't mind and keywords is of interest to many! A very hair pulling subject!

    Hi @deaddiction!
    did you get my point? what is the main issue i write for,
    when i add word "classified" with any other keywords my url comes on 2, 3 positions on 1st page
    for example car dealer classified theme, automotive wordpress classified theme, and these keywords don have searches in google planner.
    actual keywords are car dealer theme, automotive wordpress theme
    what can b the reason for this issue?

    You've answered your own question, those keywords are clearly much more competitive.

    @ivandrago they are of 100-1k monthly searches with low competition as mentioned in google planner tool
    even if they might b competitive, i worked on them from last 6 months url should come at least in 100 to 150 positions. but its not
    it only comes with combinations of classified word

    car dealer classified theme - About 1,030,000 results

    car dealer theme - About 10,200,000 results

    The keyword planner gives no indication of how hard it is to rank organically for something.

    It's also likely the off-page stuff you're doing has had no effect.

    If you've spent 6 months working on something and haven't cracked the top 100 I'd recommend a total rethink of your strategy.
