I have an articlce on my website that is doing very well and driving
some good traffic to my website. It's ranking on page 1 for a number
of keywords. The article is however ranking on page 5 for the keyword
I wanted most to be on page one.

I must say my article is richer in content and more helpful to the
readers than most of the articles on page one and most time it's when
the readers have run into trouble and they're finding the way out that
they get my article rank on page one for the "query" term.

Is there an expert in the house who can help me move my way to page
one please? I know there's a way out but I don't know how.

Hi Neksummi, Laura makes a good point. Seems like everything is working well for you with this article. Messing around may have negative consequences.
If it ain't broke don't try to fix it.
I personally would leave things the way they are, and write another great post.

All the best,
Michael

Thanks Michael for your response. It actually ain't broken so I'll just let it be and hope Google would be nicer to for my number 1 keyword.

You are doing great Neksummi. I think you made the right choice of leaving things the way they are.
I am sure you are going to write many more posts that are going to rank number one with the keyword.
Best wishes,
Michael

I just checked and this one is already coming up. It's now on page 4! I have over 160 comments on the article and with my replies, we have 312 comments! I'm sure it's just a matter of time before it gets to page 1 and number 1 for my desired keyword.

I thought I could make the process faster but I'll let it take a natural course.

Thanks.

Hello, I a bit confused. If I understand, correctly your post is #1 on Google but not ranking for the keyword that you intended?

As long as your post is ranking, it doesn't matter what the keyword is. Google sees it, and people are finding it, and it is bringing in traffic.

If you mess with it, you may lose your #1 ranking.

If I have misunderstood your intention, please explain it better.

Ok. Thank you for your input. Yeah you understood me correctly. I probably need to give it more time to move up to where I'd like it to be for the exact keyword.
