    Any comment on this?

    Please evaluate my SERP.

    My blog is just a month old. It's about SEO so I am focusing much on seo-related keyword.

    Today, I tried to check google and I found out that some of my pages/posts are ranked faster than the keywords that I am targeting. I understand that the keywords/key phrases I am targeting are very competitive so it may difficult for me to get my site on top in a short period of time.

    As mentioned, I am targeting SE-related keywords but the following keyphrases put my blog on higher google position when I checked today.

    "moneymaking forums lists", "moneymaking forum lists", "money-making forum lists", and "money making forum lists" - 1st place on 1st page.
    "money-making forums" - 10th on 1st page
    "moneymaking forums' - 8th on 1st page
    "top social bookmarking sites" - 7th on the first page.
    "Lists of SEO Blogs" - 3rd on first page


    What do you think?
    Do you think my ranking is improving? The age of my site is 6 weeks, and the above keyphrases are not my target... I'm far away from my target keywords.

    I guess it depends. How much traffic do you get from those keywords? If it is a decent amount then you're off to a good start. If the amount is small then all you did was target easy to rank well for keywords.

    Keep in mind, it is only a month old, so it takes some time to develop. I'd say just keep monitoring, adjusting, experimenting, and it should rise slowly but surely.

    Probably the most important thing for a blog like yours is the quality of traffic your getting to the site. If the right people are viewing it, a lot of other good things will follow including good search rankings.

    Not a huge amount of traffic but still very nice to have. From here you should start to target more competitive, and thus higher traffic, keywords.

    Thats great that you are already ranking for those keywords with a new blog.
    Now concentrate on keywords w/ high monthly searches.
