Myself Brianna, i have some issue about indexing articles...
I am running a blog since 3 years and getting good result in Google but last 20 days i have published 10+ articles, each and every article indexed by google but didn't show article in serp result, even i searched article's title using exact match...
Example: "15+ Free Responsive Magento Themes For eCommerce Store"
But didn't see my webpage url.. Instead of this google showing third party url where i have shared my article for promotion purpose...
Does my blog penalize by google or something else.. please give your feedback... i have checked google webmaster tools but didn't find any massage regarding penalties...
Here is my blog: blogs.perceptionsystem.com
need your help to find the solution....
waiting for positive response..
THanks & Regards
Hi, your articles are indexed properly.
You did mention searching your blog post using exact query like "15+ Free Responsive Magento Themes For eCommerce Store". Google shows most relative link to this query. Plus there are people or companies advertising using Adwords- that means there is phrase in this query that may sell product, after these- will be search results ranked by SEO.
This is what I saw in search 1st place ranked by seo
and your exact url
I have not checked in depth (using more tools), but your competitor got some backlinks leading to this post and these help that post to rank higher
In several words- you can build your own choise high quality backlinks or you can try to steal these from competitor.
Here is what I see you should get backlinks from if you try to steal competitor backlinks:
Have a nice day
