10 Day Old Website, Position 4 In Google - The Power of Long Tail Keywords
After coming back from the Wealthy Affiliate Las Vegas conference I had a renewed energy inside of me & as a result I decided to start some additional niche websites.
One of the websites I launched on March the 3rd, 2020.
And now on March the 13th, one of the posts is already sitting on the first page of Google at position 4.
Take a look:
And the reason I want to share this with you is because this is literally one of the most simple & basic websites I have ever launched.
The website basically follows Kyle's training here at Wealthy Affiliate to the letter.
- Build a simple website
- Find a longtail keyword with low competition
- Write a helpful article related to the keyword
That's it - no tricks, gimmicks or time wasted trying to get the website to look perfect.
Instead I just went right in, picked a simple theme & produced a quality piece of content.
You see, one thing I see very often here at Wealthy Affiliate is people getting stuck in the rut of comparing their website to others & thinking that it has to look perfect to be successful.
Truth is, it doesn't.
People don't really care about how your website looks - they care more about how easy your content is to read, how helpful it is to them, and how quickly it loads.
So to tick all of those boxes, keep it simple.
I know - it almost seems too easy, right?
But it's true, and I think one of the main reasons many people don't end up finding success is because they've actually just over complicated things for themselves.
Don't do that.
I mean yes, I'll admit that I myself am guilty of it sometimes too. I think we all are.
You come across a great site, and think "wow, I wish my site looked like that"... But this here is proof that it absolutely doesn't matter whatsoever, and time spent tweaking aesthetics is time that could have been spent publishing new content to get more traffic.
So if you've found yourself stuck in the rut of comparing your site to others & thinking that it's not good enough then I just want this post to highlight that it really doesn't matter.
- Pick a simple theme
- Find a longtail keyword
- Publish helpful content related to the keyword
