How to Rank #1 in Google today?
Last Update: Apr 30, 2022
You probably have read this SEO quote “The Best Place to Hide a Dead Body is Page 2 of Google Search Results”
Studies have shown that about 91.5% of search engine click-throughs occur on the first page of search results.
The rest of the results pages only make up a slender 8.5% of clicks.
Your question might be how to rank on the first page of google?
If you follow the training here at Wealthy Affiliate you will understand that Kyle is always emphasized looking for “Low Hanging Fruit Keywords”
This means Keywords with low competition ideally within under 100 QSR (competition).
It works very well for a brand new website.
But if you want to target keywords with medium competition within 500 QSR. You will find your posts burry on the 2nd or 3rd pages of Google.
To rank on the first page of Google will less effort Google need to see your website as an authority in your niche.
For Google to see your website as an authority site you need to get links that are pointing to your website.
To get links that are pointing to your website you need to write content for your “Linkreators”.Who are the Linkreators?
Linkreators are people who are running websites in your industry. Those are the people who have the power to link to your content.
Writing content that targets your Linkreators will help you build links to your website and rank well on the first page of Google.
Although many people say links don't matter as much as they used to, the data shows that backlinks still form the foundation of the Google algorithm
We have learned to write content exclusively for our target audience. That is very good the issue is those people do not run any website.
They just buy and go.
To succeed today with your website you need to implement a strategy or develop a plan for creating content for your Linkreators too.
This will help you to boost your website rankings and get more traffic to your existing post and help them to rank well.
I have written a Wealthy Affiliate Case Study on my website. I know my target audience won't be searching for a Wealthy Affiliate Case Study on Google.
They will be searching for a Wealthy Affiliate Review or how to make money online.
But this case study I especially wrote for my Linkreators people who run websites.
As we all know everyone here at WA runs a website which means I will get a lot of links pointing to my website and this will boost my rankings.
Therefore, this post is not to charge what Kyle is teaching here.
I have to confirm that we have everything we need inside the wealthy affiliate platform to build a successful business online.
This post is just to add some spices to what we are learning here and there is no doubt links are one of the top 3 ranking signals of Google.
Therefore, when you are writing commercial posts (reviews and articles) to increase your sale.
You need to remember also to write information posts for your Linkreators for better rankings.How to find your Linkreators?
The best place to find your Linkreators is on Google. Search for broad keywords in your niche and analyse the top 10 results
If those websites are ranking on the first page of Google with broad keywords it means they are authority websites.
Then make a list of 10 to 15 top Linkreators in your niche and analyse the first 5 posts and see what topic they already converted and which website they link to.
The next step is to find the best Keywords for your Linkreators and then write a very detailed article.
You are probably wondering how to write the best article that appeals to your Linkcreators. You can write:
- Go-To Guidebook: This is a guide that contains just about everything someone needs to know about a specific topic. For example a Step by step guide for losing belly fat in 2 weeks
- The Expanded List Post: I am sure everyone knows what is expanded list post… Therefore, if you do not know it is a post with a list of tips. When you are writing an expended list post the topic needs to be something that you can provide 17-27 bite-sized tips.
- The Industry Study: This is the exact type of content that Linkreators love to link to and cite in their articles.
In fact, many bloggers and journalists are actively looking for sites to link to. Specifically, they are seeking out sources that they can use to back up what they're writing about.
When you publish an Industry Study, you have the exact kind of original research that Linkreators love to link to.
After writing your article you can get links organically. But to speed up the process you need to reach out to your Linkreators since you have made a list of them to get backlinks faster.
Remember your Linkreators are people like you who have a busy day. You need to be very specific when you reach out to them.
A simple email like this will make a lot of difference.

Backlinks still form the foundation of the Google algorithm. To rank #1 in Google today you need to write informative content that appeals to your Linkreator for backlinks. The more link you get from the authority website the better rankings you will get.
