Search engine ranking question
« on: 12-13-2011, 21:06:05 »
My site ranks No:2 in the search engines for a particular keyword.
The site that is No:1 for that keyword has a lot less back links than i have and their site pages are very poorly optimised.
other than they have had their site running longer than my site, why is it that they are No:1 and i am No:2
If anyones knows the answer please let me know.


thanks,

It may be your website is not very popular as their website. Search engine loves quality of back-link better then quantity of back-link. so, i suggest you to go for quality back-link for your website. I hope it will solve your problem.

Make sure to check whether the competitor use keyword in their domain. Google gives weight for the niche domain names. If so don't worry. Keep build on quality backlinks which helps to beat your competitor.

It depends upon the competition of the keywords it might be possible that your keyword which is first page has no more competition as compare to the keyword which is on second page.

As you said your competitor site is running longer than your site, they may have advantage of site settlement. This means that they are highlighted more in the eye's of search engines. Make your presence strong by having quality optimization in both on & off site work.

Ranking depends on many factors, not just the backlinks, content plays the major role. A well optimized site -  having quality backlinks have upper hand in ranking, even the traffic and bounce rate plays an important role in ranking, if your website has higher bounce rate than competitor, then his website will be in top of yours.

Well, I would like to say one thing, just take a look again your website and check content whether it is quality content or not. Apart from this, if you are already doing SEO, then it is good, so just make it clear that you are sharing your link in social media sites or not. Apart from this, Do you prefer SMM strategies?

All major search engines rank web pages based on the number of links that point to them.Google uses backlinks as the most important factor when ranking sites. Yahoo and Bing also use link popularity in their formulas.
