How can I find more keywords like this?
How can I predict where a page will rank on SERPs once it's published?
How can I determine how tough the competition for the keyword is?
Thanks a lot,
In time as the article gets buried within your own internal links it will likely slip from #1 unless it gains lots of backlinks or is in a relatively non-competitive sector.
Writing lots of articles just like it will hasten it's drop from the prominent position on your site it now has which affects internal "weight" dramaticaly.
edit: you could counter balance the drop in weight by removing other links from the index I suppose but eventually you just run out of "juice" to go around. The trick is to keep the articles that bring in 1000+ visits a day linked from the index and reduce the number of other links to keep those strong until natural links build up and you can safely unlink them from the index. It's not as simple as that, hundreds of variables exist, but that is a very basic explanation.
Hope that helps.
