    Perhaps someone would be kind enough to advise me on the following –

    I’ve had my web site for about 3 years. I built it myself and did my own optimization and on the specialized searches I’m always on the first page. On the more generic searches however, I don’t seem to appear at all, at least not in the first 50 pages I’ve bothered to look through. The point I don’t understand is that for the very same searches on images I’m always near the top of the first page. Could someone please explain this massive disparity between the 2 search methods.

    Thank you

    Hi Gareth,

    Without knowing the exact site, it’s very difficult to tell. You say you’ve done your own optimization, could i ask if this was all on page? have you done any outreach or link building?

    Google quotes that they use over 200 hundred ranking signals to rank a site, of which links factor heavily, irrespective of the negative press surrounding them. For a specialist site talking about a specialist subject area there may be so little competition that on page factors and domain authority is enough to give the site visibility. For more generic keywords, competition and search volume will mostly likely be a lot higher, with a lot more competing sites for the same space. In these instances, off site factors will affect the ranking algorithm, for example factors such as links, social and engagement.
