From page 1 to page 6. What does google want???????

Last Update: October 01, 2014

In the beginning,100 days ago, my ranking as #2 on page 1 of google was a great feeling.

My niche was a review of our small town restaurants called PAHRUMP,NEVADA RESTAURANT REVIEWS. I only had 3 fast food reviews on there and I am ranked #2. Wow I thought.

Now, 3 months later, after writing 17 more reviews, I am on page 6. Who is going to find me there?

So my question is "What do the google spider crawlers want? How do I fix it?


Any suggestion would be helpful. Thanks in advance. bingopauls vegas

Some things that Google likes to see is more than 400 content on each page, some italics and highlighted words. Those are just a few I have heard about.
Also, are you getting indexed by Google crawler bots?

I just found this article that has a tool to test your site and help give you answers for this. I have not used it, but I am sure anything is worth a try. http://www.feedthebot.com/spiderview.html

Bingo. I am not sure what they want, but I just started doing the Fetch in webmaster tool that Robert (boomergp08) provided. If you have not already done this for your crawl after posts, it may help. Here is the link. Hope it helps.

How long have you been off page one and do you have a link to the site?

A couple of weeks. What do you mean by link to the site? All my pages, post and sites all link back to WA or my other sites which also link to WA. All related

When you say links I thought that meant links to WA. But after researching SEO google, They are looking for outside links in your text to validate credibility to what you are saying. I understand a little better now. They want links, I'll give them links. Working on it right now
