It took a while but I was finally able to get the Google algorithm to play nice with Koala Rank.
We have multiple blog posts ranking at the moment, with the first one targeting keyword "content team roles" at position 4 for the US (our main target).
These are all keywords that have low to medium search volume as they are easier to rank for.
All posts and pages are showing positive SEO signals (apart from one which got kicked out of SERP #1 yesterday for some reason 🙄) with Google Search Console giving us a clear picture of where to improve and what keywords to optimize for going forward.
Looking forward to work on the main pages as well which require a much "heavier" hand with backlinks.
Wish me luck 😁
