What am I doing wrong?
Hey everyone...I have to admit, I'm becoming really frustrated. I feel like I don't know what else I can do. I'm picking low competition keywords to put in the title and elsewhere in my articles. I try to research what keywords others are using in their headlines, but when I search those keywords in Jaaxy, I'm seeing either way too much competition or the average searches and traffic are less than 10...yet these sites are ranking on the first page in Google.
I consistently write articles of 1500 words or more, using good images, getting comments on the site from Site Comments, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I make sure to use Google Search Console to get my pages indexed faster. The only thing I see is that I haven't been able to post as frequently as I want to. But can that be the big reason my articles are seemingly lost in the abyss that is the Google search pages?
I frequently search for the keyword phrases I use in my article and the pages that are ranking don't even have the phrase in their title, first paragraph, and sometimes don't even include it, but may have a part of the phrase here and another part there.
My site is nearly a year old and I have yet to have a page rank on even the first couple of Google pages. I really want to make this work and help my family, but I feel like I'm trying to break through an iron wall with a feather. Can someone help me figure out what I am doing wrong?
