How to rank on Google with keywords?
Friends, you might not rank for the main keyword, even if that keyword has low competition. But it is possible to rank for the longer version of that keyword.
If your main keyword has 1 M visitors per month. Try to find the longer version keyword which can have 10k visitors per month.
For example, if the main keyword is “iphone back cover”, then you can opt for ” perfect iphone back cover”.
Adding adjectives can be used to find the longer version.
Create 10 posts on the long tail keywords, which will bring a minimum of 5k-10k organic traffic. You can create as many posts you want.
Then when you will rank on this long tail keywords and the user experience will be good, then Google will also rank you for the main keyword.
“Good user experience will be an important factor to rank on Google in the upcoming years”.
So your content must be helpful.
It is said that a lengthy post tends to rank on Google. Because Google feels that the post is more detailed. But here comes the fact that it should also be on the point. To create a lengthy post don’t write unrelated things.
Step 2: Create lead magnets.
To increase your email list, subscribers have to give valuable products, services or other to make your visitors subscribe or sign up.
You can give discount coupons, free service, personal help, keywords, etc to your visitors but for that they have to subscribe or sign up.
When you will create a new post. With the help of an email list, you will get the initial visitors by mailing them about your new post.
Step 3: 4 pieces of second level content
After the main post, there should be 4 pieces of content supporting the main post but as important as the main one. If the main content has 100k(minimum) traffic per month.
Then this 4 blogs should have a traffic of 100k visitors together. This 4 blogs + the main, will be the most important part of your website.
These 5 posts should be properly written (SEO friendly), promoted, and regularly updated. This proper care and updation will lead them to rank on Google.
If only 10% visitors(31% visitors clicks the 1 search results on Google) come to your site then there will be 20,000 visitors on your site per month.
Regular post 1 post a week with long tail keywords. These techniques will create an amazing website.
