    I have recently set up a new website www.drivinglessonsdrogheda.ie and I am worried that I can't get ranked. has anyone any advice for me? It has been up there for two months and it's barely on the second page.

    Patrick ,
    There are something you are doing that could look spammy
    i.e.

    Driving Lessons Drogheda - Driving Lessons Julianstown
    compare that to Driving Lessons Drogheda - Driving Lessons Mornington
    Just changing one keyword on these pages isn't going to be that interesting content wise for Google.

    it generally goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, you need more links to your site

    fix the content on pages like Driving Lessons Drogheda - Your Car
    Driving Lessons Drogheda - Choosing an Instructor
    Driving Lessons Drogheda - Apply Online

    Change the title around put Apply Online - Driving Lessons Drogheda instead of Driving Lessons Drogheda - Apply Online. Or better yet write them so that they are clear to read like Apply for your test online with Driving Lessons Drogheda and not just vague keyword infused blocks.

    Thanks for giving me a heads up with this. I didn't actually do much of the work on the site. But your right I'll take on board what you've said and have a good look at changing all the content.

    Plus from a punters point of view - your description in the SR's is no that appealing, in comparison to the other results. OU're not making the most of that imo

    Is backlinks as big a factor as it used to be. I thought with penguin/panda they have moved away(not ignored) backlinks as priority and have moved back to large quality content. I think even with the last update from Google algorithm was to lower priority on pages which had little content??

    Getting your new site to rank will take time. To develop page rank you need to add in-bound links to your site regularly.

    Hi there I am by no means an expert but I am not seeing enough written content the site has lots of very nice images, if content is king then you need more written content, perhaps add a blog. I know in wordpress based websites and using yoast seo they always tell you to have at least 500 words per page and from what I have seen in a few of the latest google updates they are saying about more text based content. But as I said I am by no means an expert.
