not ranking

Hi Guys!

We have recently added a new site,, to Google which does not seem to rank well. Even for search terms such as jobs in australia.

Any ideas why this could be?

Thanks in advance.

Tough vertical to break into. The dominant places have a LOT of age/trust/back-links and are network affiliated with major publishers (News/Fairfax etc).

If you’re site is relatively new, it’s not likely to make a dent in rankings unless you get some significant back-link equity helping you.

its normal for a new site… i suggest to read google seo starter guide:


Wouldn’t the point to be ranking in .au? Or is this for people in other countries
to go work in au?

I think a .au domain would be better and a au server might help also.

Other than that, try getting some links from sites in .au
