    The purpose of this post is not to self-promote. A few clicks isn't going to help me whatsoever. I just want advice.

    I just started a website. http://new-electronics.net/

    If you search for newest electronics, my parked domain, http://newestelectronics.net is the fifth result (which isn't too bad.)

    I need help showing up on Google results better. Though you can kind of find me by searching "newest electronics" you can't find me at all when you search for "new electronics."

    How do I increase exposure and profitability?

    Thank you.

      In my opinion, I would do a 301 redirect to whichever site you want to rank the highest and use Google's Webmaster tools to tell Google that all rank gained at the parked domain should be permanently transferred to the main domain.

      Link building along with best SEO practices is the best way to improve page rank, and building a link network for one domain is hard enough.

      You can email me at chris@pricelessimprinters.com if you want to learn more.

      P.S.
      This is what I do for a living. Good luck!

    A few of my hubs have made it into the first page on google/yahoo search, like "lenovo y550p review" "how valid are iq tests" and etc. So I have the basics down, but what should I change about my site to make it more visible? It's only been up for about a day but I KNOW that it has been indexed for sure (Try searching for the exact domain.) For some reason I can only find one of my domains online hmm

      Google Algorithm takes in consideration about 200 factor for ranking. Among which the top priority goes to Content.

    I am no SEO expert but I think that google only indexes one of your sites because they are both very similar and doesnt see the need to have both in its search results. I think.

    Someone correct me if i'm wrong

      wrong, in a way, google has an algorithm, it doesn't actually care how many similar sites you have,

    I ran a useful meta analysis over at http://www.submitexpress.com and came up with the following results, perhaps you'll find them useful.

    Title:    This tag contains too many characters.

    This tag contains 128 characters. This is too many for what we would consider a 'robot friendly' web page. The maximum number of characters we recommend for this tag is 80.

    Description:    Found no description meta tag.
    The description meta tag is used by most of the search engines. Consider adding a description meta tag.

    Keywords:    Found no keywords meta tag.
    The keyword meta tag is still used by many search engines. Consider adding a keyword meta tag.

    Robots:    Found no robots meta tag.
    This tag is not really required but helps spiders to index the web page.

    Author:    Found no author meta tag.
    This tag is not really required but helps for your (company) name recognition.

    Web page analysis.
    This page contains too many URLs.
    This tag contains 115 urls. Some Search Engines have problems with more than 100 urls on a page.
    The size of the web page is to big.
    The size of the web page is 57442 bytes.

    first you have to stop searching for your own stuff while SIGNED in to google accounts on google when attempting to find google placement

    You are most certainly not first page for newest electronics and you will most likely NEVER be first page for "New electronics"

    Asking how can I make my brand new web site rank on the first page of google for a tech niche is like asking for the formula to turn lead to gold.

    The answer is get to searching and learning and write tens of thousands of words and get tens of thousands of backlinks.

    I would sell it on ebay, starting bid $99, allowing for best offers, be happy to let it go for $50

    Than go buy 7 new domains with more useful and conquerable keywords

      Okay, this is hilarious. In google. I can't find the web page I built for my husband. In scroogle his business name is number one on gig park and the #2 is the site I built him.

      What's up with this?
      And thanks for the link. And sorry for hijacking.

    you are seeing personalized search results, while signed into google accounts (gmail,adsense,analytics, calender etc) you have visited your own page a billion times Im sure, now when you search for that term your past search history is perverting the returns.

    You must not be signed into any google accounst whensearching for how your site ranks, or use a plug in for your browser or use teh google search link i just gave you

      You are just doing more harm to your good ranking website by having the same content on another website with different url.  Google will only recognize one website otherwise people would be buying 1000s of urls and posting same content.   You could make all new content on new website and start over if that is what you want.

        I didn't do that, I just changed the main domain name. Now the old domain redirects to the new one.

    oops, end of last year google extended personalized search to every computer via cookies - you no longer need to be signed in

    http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/ … ryone.html

    which makes finding a non-cookie search engine like scroogle or using a plug-in even more important than ever

    i actually am going to have to do some checking on my own recent work as i dont always bother with the plug-in - google fascists

        erase all your cookies and search again on regular google if you dont believe me, i am done..you have the knowledge, roll with it

        before putting any work into that term, how many people search for "newest electronics" what kind of competition do you have for "new electronics"  ...foood for thought

            ..thats broad! and your level of competition was explained by the latest posters, think about what type of searcher is using that term in "quotes" ...what level of internet savvy individual is familiar with advanced google operators, hint, not your revenue generating traffic

            Its a dead horse

            once you get to the #1 spot, and don't see 27k users a month, go back to your adwords keyword tool and change it from "broad" to "exact"

      I hate to burst your bubble, but sunforged is right. I didn't see either site listed in the top 30.

      I'm really not trying to be mean or anything, but there is just no way in hell your going to rank top 10 within a day with 52M competing for very competitive keywords when you didn't even have meta description tags in place. #1 & #2 are PR8 & PR7 sites. Those are even higher PR sites than HubPages is.

  12. Cayden Ryan profile image56
    Cayden Ryanposted 7 years ago

    Allan, you own an exact match domain name, that IS gold, if used properly, you need to do keyword research on a site like adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal for the keyword/s you want to rank for, and use that information to help yourself rank. however, ranking for a term like your going after is like trying to outrank google, on google, it's tough, for instance, you will NEVER outrank adobe.com for the keywords click here, I promise

    1. MyWebs profile image82
      MyWebsposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      In my opinion new-electronics.net is great because it has the dash separating the keywords in the domain name. Thats the one I would focus on. Yes that is a great domain name for sure. I think I would be trying to flip it for some quick $$$

      The other one would probably be seen as one long word, not so good. I have a hub about how to pick a good domain name that gets into some of these things.

    Thank you all for trying to help me.

    Yeah well i've now realized that it seems to show up for certain people but not others (a majority do not see it)

    I've ran a test on half a dozen locations, and it seems like people with certain ISPs tend to find mine more easily. Otherwise, my site is kind of invisible. I've messed with keyword density, meta tags, and more, and i've submitted my site links to be indexed...

    I even am using google webmaster tools now

    But it seems like it's not really working or hasn't worked yet, because maybe google thinks that i've plagiarized because i've submitted alot of my articles in multiple places.

    One of my main goals is to get my 2010 laptop buying guide on the first page of google when you search "laptop buying guide" or "laptop buying guide 2010."

    To accomplish this, i've messed with keyword density a whole lot, replacing "computer" with laptop, etc etc

    I've also backlinked in a few places.

    If anyone could help me achieve this, or explain to me why it won't work, or what I need to do to fix this, please help.

    Thank you smile

    1. MyWebs profile image82
      MyWebsposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Now I will agree with you. I see newestelectronics.net placing #7 on Google.com for "Newest Electronics". Much of this is probably the freshness factor, because your site is new. Once Google pulls this signal away your likely to drop like a rock down the SERP's. So don't stop working on it just because your at the top.

      Keep working on getting more and more back links so you stay there!

      Why is your title "New Electronics" when your targeting "Newest Electronics" here???? THAT makes no sense at all and your giving up a valuable signal in Google's algorithm. I would make it "Newest Electronics" and never change it.

    The trick I found to get my husband's name to #1 on google was gigpark. It didn't get our website up there, but the company name and phone # is number 1 in it's industry. You might want to give that a shot for more promotion too. Good strong backlink.
