So glad that I've just achieved Google Page 1 Position 4 ranking in just 3 Minutes!

Here's the screenshot:

As you can see, this is a review I wrote on Digital Altitude, and the SERP shows "3 mins ago". It's a really motivating result.

Let me share with you what I did...


Keyword Research: Long Tail Keywords

Firstly, Keyword Research is really important! My main keyword for this post is "Is Digital Altitude a Pyramid Scheme". This is one of the terms that people are likely to search for when they're researching for DA.

However, as compared to the very common keyword "Digital Altitude Review", the QSR (competition) for my keyword is a lot lesser. The QSR for "Digital Altitude Review" is 215 while the QSR for "Is Digital Altitude a Pyramid Scheme" is only 13.

And the SEO Score for "Digital Altitude Review" is 77 while the SEO Score for "Is Digital Altitude a Pyramid Scheme" is 95.

The keyword I choose is more of a long tail keyword. With less competition, it has lesser searches and traffic as well. But our main goal is to rank on Google page 1, isn't it?

So, the first step to better ranking is to choose your keyword wisely and you only need to focus on ONE keyword per post.


Common Misconception!

By the way, there's a common misconception regarding "long tail keyword". A long tail keyword does not mean the keyword is longer and has more words.

In fact, the length and number of words of a keyword has nothing to do with whether it is a long tail keyword or not.

If you don't understand what I mean here, check out this post by Dom about long tail keyword:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co...


Research for My Review

I spent around 1 to 2 hours reading people's reviews online as well as signing up for DA's 14-day trial to see the platform myself.

There's one very common misconception people have is that they can't write a review for products they have not tried themselves. If you are one of them, check out this post on 5 Strategies to Write a Product Review without Buying & Owning the Product Yourself.

I'm telling you that you can write reviews on things you've not tried or even owned yourself. There's nothing wrong with it.

So, I did my thorough research before putting everything together and wrote the review.

As you can see from my Digital Altitude review, it is very authentic and thorough despite I didn't personally tried their courses.


On-Page SEO

In order for your post to get ranked in Google fast, you need to get your on-page SEO right. That's the crucial thing you have full control in your hands as compared to off-page SEO where there are certain factors that are not within your control.

Basically, I did the 7 SEO Tips Jay taught in his live webinar.

  1. Meta Title
  2. Meta Description
  3. Keyword in Content
  4. Image Attributes
  5. Internal Links
  6. External Links
  7. Video Embed

If you haven't watched Jay's Webinar Replay on these SEO Strategies, what you need to do is just click on this link and go watch it! Because Jay's advice works!

Recently, Jay did another webinar on 7 SEO Strategies to Explode Your Rankings in 2018. You should check that out as well. The additional tips include:

  • List Based Content
  • AMP Results
  • Bing Webmaster Tool
  • Posting to Google+

All these advice from Jay is very useful and powerful. We should learn and apply to our own contents!

As long as you get your on-page SEO right, your chance of ranking well in Google fast will increase a lot.


After Publishing The Post

The process doesn't end at the point when you hit the publish button. In fact, promoting your content is as important as creating it.

So, here are the things I did after I hit that publish button...

(1) I come to Wealthy Affiliate and request comments.

(2) I share the post on all the social media I have...

  • Google+
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • StumbleUpon

(3) I go to Search Console AddURL and submit my new URL for indexing, instead of using "Fetch as Google". This is the new strategy I learnt from Dom's WA blog post.

To learn why and how to do it, check out his blog post here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co...

Basically, Fetch as Google's main purpose is not for you to request indexing according to Dom. Instead, AddURL is the correct way of doing it and it's a lot faster.

Nevertheless, I did both AddURL and Fetch as Google for this post.

After doing these three steps, I typed in my keyword into Chrome Incognito and BOOM!! Page 1 Position 4 in 3 Minutes.


That's not the end of content promotion though...

To get an even better ranking for multiple keywords, including the more competitive ones like "Digital Altitude Review", here's what I plan to do...

(1) Leave comments on contents related to Digital Altitude and link to my post (despite being nofollow).

(2) Find forums, groups, discussion areas where people are discussing about Digital Altitude and participate in the conversation. I'll eventually link to my post in a natural way.

(3) Write relevant (review) posts and build internal links to this posts. For example, I can write a review on Empower Network or Carbon Copy Pro because Michael Force, the founder of Digital Altitude, is also involved in all these other programs.

These are the strategies you can apply to your own content creation and promotion as well!


Conclusion

All you have to do is to follow the training here in WA because it works. No doubt there are a lot of learning, effort and time needed but we are building a business for ourselves.

If you want to succeed, there's no short cut but to really put in the hard work. If you're able to persist and be consistent in your work, it's going to pay off.

Once you gain the traction for your business and the trust from Google, your traffic as well as your sales will increase exponentially.

I really hope that what I've shared in this post can help you get better rankings and improve your SEO skills.

OH MY GOSH. I am so lucky that I came across this blog post. Thank you Jerry for sharing with us about the Search Console AddURL function. I just followed Jay's 7 steps which he only mentioned about Fetching as Google. Additionally, I cant find the AddURL function in my google search console! I had to click on your link instead.

Hi, this really does work!

I followed all the training here and in the links you shared, and wrote a post yesterday. Then I checked google incognito today and I'm on page 3!

That is great for me as I'm in an extremely competitive niche. It's also the highest I've ranked so far, so Thank you, and Jay and all the others who have been so kind in teaching us all how to optimize our posts, you are all very much appreciated! : )

Something I think you should add to all that, which is just as important, is consistency. If you consistently add content at a regular interval as well as follow what you listed above, Google and the other search engines will love that and certainly rank you faster which will definitely help in getting traffic to you quickly. If someone posts sporadically, not keeping with a consistent pattern, you'll see that your posts won't rank as quickly.

Great Jerry,

Congrats on the first page.

One for the archive. I will go through Jay's 2018 a bit later. I haven't been able to attend the webinars lately on Saturday mornings here in OZ. AND trying to finish off an opal site.

By the way how much traffic did the keyword receive and is the competition for this keyword? I would be interested to know.

Thanks, Jerry!!!
Reply
JerryHuang Premium
The screenshot below is the result of the keyword research.

I wouldn't worry too much about the traffic though. Because ultimately one post can be ranked under many different keywords so the total traffic is the sum of all the keywords that your content rank for.

For example, I may be able to rank well for keywords like "Digital Altitude Review" as well which has a monthly searches of 651 and first page traffic of 111.

Our main goal is to find long tail keywords that are easy to rank.

BradBurns Premium
Thanks, Jerry,

I know what you mean because other keywords also come into play. I noticed that in analytics.

Thanks, mate and I will have a look at those longtail keywords if I can fit them in with the domain. Some I have tried are too long and exceed the 60 mark in the title.

JerryHuang Premium
By the way, long tail keyword does not mean the word is longer. In fact, the length of the keyword has nothing to do with whether it is a long tail keyword or not.

I don't know how Google calculates the timing but I definitely spent more than 3 minutes to request for comments and share on social media. LOL

The main point is that the post gets ranked very fast.
