The problem with similar articles on the information site
« on: August 08, 2017, 11:30:23 AM »
Hello.

There is an information site with a large number of articles that are optimized for similar keywords. In general, the articles look something like this:

How to paint a fence
How quickly to paint a fence
How to paint a fence with a roller
How to paint a wooden fence
How to paint a metal fence

The problem is that Google cannot correctly determine which page to show on what request. For example, on request "How to paint a wooden fence" can get out an article "How to paint the fence", because it mentions a "wooden fence". But this article will not respond well to the user's request and as a result, will take a low position.

Advise, what can be done on this? Is there anything that can be done without combining or deleting the "extra" articles?

You can solve it by putting a link with the correct one on the desired page.

In your case, on the page "how to put a fence somewhere in the text (preferably at the end) enter the phrase" like you will be interested in how to paint a wooden fence?. "The phrase "how to paint a wooden fence will be an anchor, as the changes get indexed, after 1 -2 weeks everything will rise to the right places.

The main drawback, you have to do everything manually. There is an option, acceleration, using the plugin "similar articles", where H1 will be an anchor, accordingly, it will create such links but you will have to adjust them.

Interlink them with each other so that in the article the phrase like "How to paint the fence", "wooden fence" has a reference to the article "How to paint a wooden fence" and so on.

The mistake was made initially is what I think. It should have been in one article. Such requests do not need to be divided into separate pages.

What you can do:

1. So combine some pages, rework and add content, re-link and put redirects from the old ones.
2. Simply re-link without merging the pages.
3. It is good to think about the semantic analysis of the text.

The fewer the intersections, the less there will be the chance of competition in extradition. And if the page mentions painting with a roller, then there should be a link to the page with the text mentioning featured article. This should help to increase the relevance of the pages in its narrow category of queries and eliminate unnecessary leapfrog in the search results.

Ps: for micro-ncs and a pile of unique queries, incorrect pages can still be displayed, since too many pages that are relevant to the same queries cannot always be correctly ranked

So this is your cannibalization of requests.

How can you get rid of it:

1. Remove all occurrences of keywords that pull irrelevant requests on the page 
2. Remove irrelevant pages
3. Use 301 redirects from an irrelevant page to a relevant one.

Hope this helps

1. Take a list of keywords.
2. Take a list of articles.
3. Make new pages when there is no keyword under the keyword of one article (for example, methods of painting fences)
4. Link those keywords where there is an article about them for a particular keyword.
5. Look at what you have about the fences yet, order/write/buy something else about this topic....

You just need to think through the structure, for example, make a team article about all the techniques and links to them.

I would also suggest you check how the competitors structured their articles for fence painting requests if your articles are ranking lower in the search engines.

Thanks for the advice. I will think what to do and how to relink. The problem is that there are more than 1000  articles on the site.

Without unification, two options are possible: to make changes to the texts so that they do not have much in common, or to try to relink the articles so that the anchor is the key phrase.
