My business is in a very niche market, how can I drive the right customers to my site?

    I run a business that advertises international teaching vacancies for certified teachers (https://www.theinternationalteacher.net) and after a ton of research into SEO I'm still having a hard time even being visible on google's first 20 pages. It's my understanding that I need to build domain authority through backlinks and I have done some guest blogging but the number of blogs/possibilities for this audience is very limited as most of the relevant sites are run by competing businesses. How can I increase my search ranking in such a niche market?
    Thanks for the support!

    For one thing, write your webpage content to contain multiple variations and synonyms of your "niche" keywords.

    How long has your site been live?
    It will take over 6 months to get out of the Google Sandbox; at this time you should start to rank more easily for your search terms.
    That being said ensure your keywords are not too difficult.
    I would also look to see where teachers reside on the web; there may be some teaching forums that would help get in front of them

    First of all, you are targeting international market then competition will too high because of this. you need first select right long tail keyword with low competition and write unique and informative content to the website. Content will play a vital role to increasing traffic and keyword ranking.

    You have to make sure that you work on your niche to honor search engine rules.

    Actually, it is a long process but you need to get more and more quality backlinks relative to your site niche.

    Are there any discussion forums available in your niche (teaching) ? If there are, you have a huge target audience just waiting for you.
