    Google Rankings

    I would like to know what I am doing wrong to rank badly for my main keyphrase. I know that it is a pretty broad question, and it seems like I am not doing great.

    Thank you

    Someone will only be able to answer that when you provide the keyword and the page you are trying to get ranked for that keyword.

    It would help if you could share the keyword and a little more info about what you've done so far, including your domain name.

    EDIT

    (Snak3 was faster )

    One of my main keywords is: Bath and Body Products and my domain is my link signature.

    Page 2 is Ok with 8k backlinks on this competition 23,100,000 But you can do better. Getting more backlinks can get you in top 6 and even more..

    You need to need to get relevant backlinks with "Bath and Body Products" as the anchor text. The next step is to make sure that you align your H tags, alt tags, title, strong, em and other seo factors to the anchor text that you target.

    should it be Natural Elements? and not "bath and body products" as his anchor text?

    Ok, done with my analysis. I have to admit that the amount of SEO done on that website alongwith the investment is really impressive.
    1) Your on-page Seo for 'bath and body products' is perfect considering the keyword density and placement within the 'b' tag, <h1>/<h2> tags, title, meta keywords/description, body.

    2) Your Domain age and length of extension is perfect too and i see no reason for you being in the sandbox.

    3) Your page has 8,481 backlinks, many of which are niche specific and pretty strong ones too.

    4) Link diversity is pretty good, site is Dmoz listed and is also in the Yahoo directory.

    You're currently ranked on the 15th spot for that keyword i guess. The only thing i see you lack is that you don't have your keyword in your URL and considering how much you've invested in your site, i don't think it would be smart to build a new one on a better domain.
    I suggest you keep building more links, try to acquire links from your competitors if possible and so also check their backlinks and try to acquire them if possible.
    I didn't have time to analyse your competitors' edge over you so i leave it on you.
    Good Luck.

    As Snak3 said, the amount of SEO done for the site is indeed very impressive.

    The only problem I can see, is that most of your backlinks do not use the words "Bath and Body Products". From what I've seen, the anchor text used most commonly is "Natural Elements Skin Care", which is a keyword that you rank #2 for.

    You should start building links using the anchor text "Bath and Body Products" if you want to rank higher for this keyword.

    Thank you very much.

    Keywords in domain url did not have huge weight when I buy it, and honestly my wife choose it.

    I know some competitors don't have keywords in domain url and they are doing well, I guess it depends on how accurate the SEO is on their site.

    I wonder sometimes if I need a second site and target differently the keywords, add more contents and build links not so heavy like Natural Elements but something that can provide more information on the Hawaii or tropical topic which can support the main site.

    Most of my competitors duplicate more or less their site on different domains with tons of deep links pointed to the main site. I really don't like this concept, because it is repetition of the message you provide to your customers or visitors.

    Or I can just develop more and more on my main domain.

    Your analyse and suggestions are much appreciated.

    Thank you for your help, I start to enjoy this community
