    Default Rakning for same keyword

    Im ranking on a keyword on a page buried deep on my site, which was a mistake. I now appreciate the importance of this keyword and want to put more focus on this. But since the page that is ranking for this kw is buried deep on my site I decided to create a new one but as an easy-to-get-to page. The problem is I will rank for the same keyword on these two pages and the content will be somewhat similar but with a better build up.

    How would you guys handle this? I have a top 10 position on the first page but it will probably stay that way but creating a new page will have better potential of reaching higher and see much more traffic than the current one are. Should I 301 direct from the first one to the new or just keep the first one?

    i would beef up the ranking page, give it exposure from your side menu. if google wants to rank that page, why bother creating a new one

    You definitely don't want to keep both pages. It will only confuse Google and lead to keyword cannibalism. What you need to do is to Set up a new one and run a permanent 301 to it. Then build out your content.

    Keep in mind that it really doesn't matter if your page is buried deep within the site. You can still give it exposure by including it on the main page (in the menu) or as a recommended article. Thousands of high authority websites have popular articles buried deep within their sitemaps, that still generate great traffic.

    I would keep the first page and optimize it to rank amongst top #3

    If your page already ranking in the top you should add it to menus or something, if you'll use 301 you could lose some positions there.

    Nothing is lost till you creative enough! Also answered on other forum to you about canonical link from old page to new page, you should try it.

    if you have similiar pages targeting the same topic but you need both pages (i.e. don't want to remove the page), you can set canonical tag that point to the page you want to rank. or in your case you have better build up topic, u can 301 from the old topic to the best topic that already build.
