It totally depends upon you what kind of keywords you are choosing and how much competition have on that keywords.One more thing and that is how much quality have your backlinks created?
If you will optimize your website in a right manner and will focus on quality link building work then you can get your targeted keywords fast.
The main point is trying to gather links which will eventually lead to getting top ranks and I do not think it is possible to target some competitive niches and hoping that within one month, some top ranks will be gained even with top links.
Sometimes only after months of link building, will improvements in ranks occur. You are recommended to keep gathering links for your site, the ones coming from relevant sites and directories with the targeted anchors would truly help.
I think the geographical target do affect your keywords ranking. Are you targeting specific location or you target global? Forum posting & classified posting are the best place to target specific location and generate backlinks. Do spend more time on both, and be patience
First check your keyword competition by using Google keyword tool or any other tool. If it is more competitive then it may take more time to come up in top 100. The shared seo channels are good and work as well but choose only top sites in respective channels means digg in bookmarking, DP, V7 and WHT in forums, try to choose directories which approve sites fast.
You also should check that your site link in respective channels are index or not. Try to choose do follow sources for promotion.
It is difficult to offer constructive ideas without the benefit of knowing what the website is, which keywords have been ranked and which is the one that hasn't. But if your other keywords are doing ok and you have treated them all equally then it does suggest that the problem is with the keyword itself,i.e. it has very high competition that the others do not.
But as has already been pointed out, one month is not a long time.
Google doesn't like being tricked. Full-stop. Link wheels are a trick, Google doesn't like them.
Google apparently doesn't like anything, so what do you suggest, we all just stop trying?? We already know that Google wants only natural links but the fact is that some things do work even though they aren't supposed to, and forums such as these are surely to discuss and evidence what does and doesn't work, not to state Google policy?
I think the keyword which you are targeting is quite competitive one. In that case you have to maintain the quality of the backlinks at the same time links have to be relevant. keep these in your mind and you will be able to rank in no time.
First you should keep patience for competitive keyword. All activities i think you are almost doing. If your website is new please don't over do that also focus on quality rather than just keep submitting, Also check if your submitted links been crawled or not else its of no use.
using the right key word density is important. also try linking to websites that have a good ranking in ALexa
No-one knows what the "right" keyword density is or even if it matters very much. Alexa rank cannot be considered as a measure of a website's authority for linking purposes as it is only the result of information collected from Alexa toolbar users.
I think I may have found the answer to this. The OP's home page is now showing in their profile, so I visited the site. The meta keyword tag contains four keywords, and a check on them showed three as being ranked by Google while the other is not (in the top 100).
The keyword which doesn't rank is high competition but there are very few monthly searches for it.
Looking at the page source, although it is in the meta tag it doesn't appear anywhere in the content, the only place I could find it was as being an Alt tag for an image.
If a keyword is not targetted on a web page then it is not going to rank well, especially given the high competition and low number of searches for it.
My apologies to the OP (should they return to the thread) if I have made incorrect assumptions as to the website and keyword concerned, I am going on the information that is available in their absence.
No-one knows what the "right" keyword density is or even if it matters very much.
Of course it matters. Along with your main targeted keywords, you also need to include related terms to that topic, so if you're targeting 'buy red roses', you should also consider using words such as 'flowers', 'bunches' etc. even if you're not targeting them.
Please give your reference for that, i.e. a link to where it is stated. If I am wrong I will happily admit it but I would like evidence of it.
I've never seen any evidence that keyword density is an algorithmic component that affects rankings.
The frequency or placement of keywords CAN impact it, but the term keyword density refers to a formula by which is the ratio of keywords to total text is somehow suppose to help search engines assign an appropriate ranking. From all of my experience and discuss with those in the industry, this is only a popular myth.
That said, it goes without saying that you should consider targeting related keywords. But in order to determine what those other keywords should be you must research not only KEI and searches but also your target market and what they are likely to respond to in a way that constitutes a positive conversion.
How to bring competitive keyword in top 100 within month.
As I done with all other seo strategy -

Still one of my keyword is not in top 500.. So what to do more for it please do suggest
All these are off page techniques. Check off page of your site also check your targeted keywords, check there competition etc and come up with better solution. Keep updating fresh and unique content on your site.Hope it works
Well, it depends on your keyword selection. Try to find out less competition and more demanded keyword. You can search best keywords by google adwords keyword tool or wordtracker and focus on quality backlinks as well.
Ranking keywords within a month also depends on your competition of certain keywords. Based on your methods you shouldve ranked a keyword with medium competition already. Also another thing is, sometimes your links wont be crawled that soon.
