The Amazing Power Of Choosing The Best Keywords
We are taught here at WA how powerful keywords are. After checking this morning I have several posts ranking on Google page 1.
But, when I did a thorough check of the keyword stats (Traffic, QSR etc.,) I admit to being baffled as to why these posts got to page 1 and others which I think should be on page 1, are languishing on page 5 or worse.
Seems to me keyword selection is far from being an exact science.
One thing I've noticed which seems really important in getting your posts to rank higher is to write longer posts. Of course, by writing longer posts you're attempting to beat out your competition. Posts I've written containing 3000 or more words just seem to rank higher more quickly.
So right now I'm working on my current 3000+ word post and I have a choice to make between 2 keywords. Both have a 'Great' KQI.
Keyword 1. - AVE 7364 TRAFFIC 1252 QSR 134
Keyword 2. - AVE 260 TRAFFIC 45 QSR 55
The training tells us to always pick low hanging fruit keywords (QSR around 50-70).
My question is - For Keyword 1, is 134 low enough to be considered low hanging fruit given the high traffic figure I'd gain by using it?
I'll be interested to hear your opinions please.
