At the present time, blogging has created a deadly taste in the minds of many. The reason for this interest in blogging is the “opportunity to earn income from blogs”.

But, people are now taking blogging as a professional business or career. And so, in this case, it is normal to create a lot of competition.

We all know, to make income from a blog,

“That blog needs thousands of unique visitors every day”.

And, in this case, Google search can give a lot of organic traffic to our blog every day. And so, as a blogger, we always try to bring visitors or traffic to our blog “Google Search Engine” for free.

But keep in mind, Google search engine has many limitations.

If Google finds any objectionable information or activity in your blog or blog article, If so, Google will never index or rank your article, blog or content in its search results.

Below, we know about each of the reasons why Google may not rank your blog or website.

1. New Blog or Website

If your website or blog is new, Google Bots will take time to crawl that new website.

It may take about 1 month for a new website to be indexed and ranked in Google search.

So, if your blog site has been newly submitted to Google, then the entire blog will take time to be indexed and ranked on Google.

You can go to Google search and type “”.

Think, name your website in place of

Now, if Google has indexed your website or blog completely, then you will see the entire pages of your website in Google’s search result page.

And, if Google has not yet indexed the page or article of your website, then nothing will be shown in the result page.

So, through this process, you will be able to know what Google has done to index your website pages.

Now, even if Google indexes the article pages of your website, it is not easy to get ranking on the first page of Google for a new website.

Because, when your website or blog is new, when the domain authority (DA) of that website will be much less.

And, Google does not rely on the content/articles of websites with a new and less domain authority (DA).

So, no matter how good and high-quality content you write, the chances of a new website getting ranked on the first page of Google in the first 2 to 3 months are very low.

Hey, when you regularly publish articles on your blog, the DA (domain authority) of your blog site will gradually increase.

As a result, if you are writing good, high quality and SEO optimized articles,

Then no one can stop them from ranking in the first search result page of Google.

However, this suggestion was for a new blog or website.


2. High competitive keywords/niche

As I said before, there is a lot of competition in the blogging industry now.

Every day thousands of blog posts are being published on the same subject and they are being indexed by Google.

Now, if you are creating a blog on such a topic or writing an article targeting such a keyword,

Google already has thousands of information/websites on topics or keywords,

Then you have to deal with a lot of competing websites to get ranking on the first page of Google search with that topic or keyword.

In this case, if the content quality, SEO and domain authority of your competitor websites are all high quality,

Then it will be almost impossible for you to rank the website with that keyword or topic in Google.

However, even if it is possible, you have to do a lot of work to rank the website for such a competitive keyword.


  1. Creating backlinks
  2. Proper off page SEO
  3. Proper On page SEO
  4. Social media sharing

So, maybe high competitive keywords are being used in the articles or contents written in your blog.

And for that, your blog articles can’t rank on the first page of Google.

For this, I have only one suggestion.

Before you write an article, you must do “Keyword research”.

Through keyword research, you can collect information about any keyword searched by Google.

In Google search engine, how many times a keyword is being searched every month, how many articles have been written by Google targeting the keywords, it means that the keyword competition, you can know the whole through keyword research.

3. Lack of quality content

If you are not writing quality content, then there will be a problem to get ranking on the first page of Google search.

Now the question is what does this “quality content” or “quality article” mean?

The answer is very straightforward.

Quality article means writing articles in such a way that your visitors can find the right answer or solution to their question.

I’ve seen a lot of bloggers around the world who don’t write articles clearly.

Somehow he wrote an article in 300 to 500 words and published it.

Moreover, they do not have any rules and regulations for writing articles.

As a result, visitors do not like their articles and Google does not rank the article pages.

So, if you are also publishing an article in any way by just writing in 300 to 600 or 700 words,

Then of course there will be a problem to get ranking in Google search.

So always try to write a detailed article on any subject.

Try to write articles in short paragraphs and at least try to publish an informative article between 1500 and 2000.

Remember, you are not just blogging about anything.

Google search already has a lot of web pages with any topic or keyword.

So, why would Google rank your website for low quality content when it already has a lot of good content.

4. Check Manual actions

If manual actions have affected your blog site in any way, then your website is not shown in Google search.

And, if the website is not shown in Google search, how to get ranking and how to get traffic.

Manual actions are that process,

Where Google officials see any kind of illegal activities, spamming and fraudulent or fishy activities on your website.

As a result, Google employees manually block or penalize your website’s domain.

To verify that manual actions have an effect on your website, go to the “Google Search Console”.

Click in the “security & manual action” tab of the Google search console and then click on the “manual action” tab.

If your website has been penalized by Google, you can see it here.

Moreover, Google also informs you by sending an email to your registered email address.

5. Is Google crawling your website properly?

Many times Google cannot crawl every page or content of our website due to various crawling errors and issues.

And, when Google bots do not crawl our website properly, then the pages of the website will not be indexed and as a result, those pages will not be ranked in Google search.

So, go to the Google search console account associated with your website and click on the “Index >> Coverage” tab.

If your website is not being crawled by Google due to a problem, a red “error” will be shown.

In addition, why Google can’t crawl your website or specific pages of the website, it will be explained there.

  • Take a look at the robots.txt file. 
  • Each of our blogs or websites has a robots.txt file. Type “” in the browser to check this robot file of your website. 
  • The job of this robot file is to instruct or tell Google or other search engines which pages of the entire website should be crawled and which should not. 
  • If by mistake, you have reversed and edited the robots.txt file on your website, Google will not be able to crawl and index your site. 
  • Make sure your robots.txt file is not blocking google bots

6. Is the “no-index” tag being used on your website?

The “No-index” tag is used to prevent a complete website link or some links from being indexed by search engines.

So, if you forgot to use this tag in a web page,

Then, the web page that is no-indexed in the search engine will not be shown or ranked.

Moreover, if you are a WordPress user and using Yoast SEO plugin on your website,

Then there is the possibility that you did not set your Yoast SEO/Rank Math SEO plugin correctly.

As a result, some part of your website (page) or the whole website is no-index.


7. Low quality backlink

Whenever Google crawls, indexes and ranks any page of a website,

Then, take backlinks as a ranking factor of that page and rank it.

Your website or website pages do not have low quality backlinks high quality backlinks,

But that is a very important issue in Google search ranking.

So, if you are creating low quality backlinks for your website,


  • From spam websites,
  • From low quality directory,
  • Buying low quality backlinks,

If you are creating or buying this type of low quality backlink for your website,

Then those bad backlinks will definitely have a bad effect on your Google ranking.

Moreover, as a result of bad and low quality backlinks, Google can “penalize” your website.

And as a result, your website’s Google ranking will be severely reduced.

To increase domain authority, Google website ranking and website traffic, “backlinks” are definitely very important.

However, try to create high-quality backlinks.

Remember, the value of 10 high quality good backlinks is much higher than 100 low quality low quality backlinks.

So, there is no harm in making backlinks less, but try to create backlinks from good high authority websites.

Here are some tips to create high-quality backlinks

  1. Write and publish high quality content on your blog. As a result, people will automatically be forced to give you backlinks.
  2. Post guest on high authority blogs.
  3. Comment on other do-follow blogs related to your blog/website.
  4. Add your own blog to the top high quality blog directories.
  5. Share/submit your blog post on social bookmarking sites.

8. Website penalized by Google

There are many times when our website’s Google search ranking (Google search ranking) suddenly decreases automatically.

The sudden decrease in Google search traffic on the website may mean that “your website has been panelized by Google”.

In fact, Google penalizes any website that violates Google’s Google quality guidelines.

And in this case, Google can completely remove some or all of the web pages from its search result page.

Let’s find out, for some of the main reasons why Google can penalize any website.

  • “Over keyword optimization” means that if you use too much of a keyword in any article, Google can penalize your website or web page. 
  • “Black hat SEO techniques” means that even if you do the bad SEO optimizations that are done to increase the ranking of the website illegally in Google search, you will get 100% penalty from Google. 
  • If you are publishing thin content on the website and not writing quality content, then there is a chance of getting a penalty. 
  • If your website has low quality spam backlinks or paid backlinks. 
  • If the bounce rate of your web pages is much higher.

So, if your blog is trapped by Google penalties, your ranking will definitely go down.
