In this post, I’m going to talk you through my entire 5 Amazing SEO strategy, step by step. In fact, this is the exact strategy that I used to rank on the first page of Google for competitive keywords like on-page SEO posts, SEO, keyword research tools, and thousands of others.
Now, I should warn you, this post isn’t going to be a bunch of high level fluff. Instead, everything I’m about to show you is going to be super tactical and actionable. Keep Reading.
Let’s face it, SEO can be hard and it’s even harder when you read the same advice over and over again, you know the stuff I’m talking about, optimize your title tags, share your content on social media, publish great content, oh, publish great content.
I didn’t think of that. And hey, this advice isn’t completely useless, but it’s not going to rocket your site to the top of Google. Why? Because everyone with a website is following the exact same advice sort of rank above them.
You need to do something completely different, which is exactly what I’m going to talk you through right now starting with step number one,
Step 1. Find an Opportunities keywords
opportunity keyword is like a regular keyword. But better, I’ll explain, you probably noticed that Google’s first page is packed with more stuff than ever before.
For example, take a look at the first page for this keyword. You’ve got a bunch of ads above the fold, a featured snippet, a question box, and news results, which is exactly why now I focus almost 100% on opportunity keywords.
what are an Opportunities Keyword?
Opportunities keywords are Which keywords with a high organic click-through-rate(CTR). In other words, they’re terms that don’t have a bunch of stuff on the first page that distracts people from the organic results.
Let’s look at an example. A while ago I created a page on my site optimized around the keyword SEO checklist and as it turns out, the SEO checklist is an opportunity keyword. Yep, there are a few View ads on the page. But that’s not really a big deal.
It’s actually in a way a good thing because it shows that people are bidding on that keyword in Google ads.
After this, the first page is very clear, this means that more search engines are given more keywords on organic keywords. Before doing keyword research, you should look at the keywords below the search engine. If it’s packed with stuff, consider going for an opportunity keyword that’s gonna get you more clicks.
Step 2. Check out the “Content Competition”
Well, most people whip up in WordPress and start writing. But that’s actually a huge mistake. In fact, that’s what I used to do. Back in the day, I’d write something that I think would rank in Google today.
I know better today, I analyze the first page results to see what’s already working. In other words, my content competition, and once I figure out the type of content that Google wants to see for that keyword,
Then I start creating content. For example, look at the first page results for the keyword paleo desserts. So if you wanted to rank for that keyword, you wouldn’t want to write a blog post, like what makes a dessert paleo or not.
Instead, you’d want to post that lists out a bunch of recipes. And back in the day, when I looked at the content that was ranking for that term, I noticed that they didn’t list out tips or strategies for finding keywords.
Instead, they were all huge guides. So I decided to create a guide that covered pretty much everything there is to know about keyword research, which helped me crack the top three for this super competitive term.
Step 3. Create Contents Different or Better
When it comes to creating content for SEO. You have two main options
- You Should Create something Unique
- You should create something Better
I’ll explain most of the time you want to publish something that’s just way better than what’s already out there. But sometimes it makes more sense to create something completely unique.
For example, a few months ago, I found the opportunity to keyword Post SEO. And when I looked at the content competition, I noticed that most of the results were less post, like nine ways to optimize your site for mobile.
Now it could have created a giant list post, like 100 ways to Post-optimize your site. But that wouldn’t make any sense. In this case, it made more sense to create something different. So that’s what I did.
I spent two 10 days writing this Amazing to Post optimization. And because my content was completely different than was already out there, it really stood out which led to tons of shares on social media backlinks and Google rankings, like I mentioned earlier, you can also just create something that’s straight-up better than what’s already out there.
Step 4. Add Your Hook
This is an advanced SEO strategy. So if you’re new to SEO, you might want to skip this step. With that out of the way, here’s how it works. You probably already know that in general pages with the most backlinks ranked highest in Google, but how do you get people to link to you?
- First of all, think why people link to your post
- Include that hook in your post
The data that is there is a different type of hook that you can use
These are the 3 methods that work for us. First of all, we have a unique technology.
Think about what the news and blogs websites do to cover their new stuff. If you make something good and new by yourself, you hook yourself into it.
Step #4. Internal Links on Posts
Internal links work very well, but you will give it right since internal linking has to be done in your post. In this way, whoever you want to rank your pages or posts, links us post with other domains which are of high authority. Actually, but they do not provide such good links to them.
Step #5. Content Decoration and Design
Now the matter is very much how your post or page is designed to be attractive or useless.
If any of the visitors visit your website, your content design should be good so that the visitor will spend time on your website.
