Keywords rank differently with no spaces

Hi,

I have website that has about 10 pages that I created 3 month ago, it took almost 2 month to be indexed but is still not ranked on my keyword ?

In fact it is ranked but only if I attach my keywords ex : " my keyword " is ranked but not " my keyword " why is that ? and whether I do 2 or 3 keywords it is the same thing ?

I tried to type my entire title for the page and it is ranked but that is the only way it is ranked. For the 2 or 3 keywords terms it is only ranked with no spaces between the words ? why is that ?

my web domain is not a .com , could that be the reason ?

Thanks,

I assume you meant not to have a space in one of your two examples - e.g. "mykeyword" compared to "my keyword" - am I correct?

If so, you'll probably see at least part of the answer in the estimated total number of results. Many more websites would intentionally use the separated version rather than the concatenated version.

I rank in the top 4 for "widgets" and for "wid gets" I'm well and truly outside the top 100. All my major competitors are able to rank on the first page of results for both. I have not been able to figure out whether it's an over-optimization problem or due to a lack of backlinks with that particular anchor text.

yeah, I have the same issue as you and can't figure out why and see that I have the exact keyword in my domain name too...I really don't understand what is wrong.. maybe google needs more time to rank me... but 3 months is already a long time...

I'm wondering if it's the case that you either target one or the other and not both - then you'll rank naturally for both? Looking at the first page of serp results for "wid gets", in 8/10 of the pages, there is no occurrence of the keyword "wid gets". The 2 remaining sites have it in their title tags and in body text but interestingly, do not rank well for "widgets".

I used to be over optimized for "widgets". I created a backlink with that anchor text and reduced the occurence of the keyword on the page. That seemed to do the trick - within a week, my page turned up.

However, "wid gets" occurs only once on my HP in some introductory text and another 3 times in the code. I'm thinking I should bring my site in line with the others and delete it outright and at the same time build a backlink with that anchor text.
