Google Page 1 Position 1 - my first!
I did a training about this easy SEO tactic a couple of days ago:
This easy SEO tactic really works! The post that I show in this example was my top ranking post (long form content) and getting a lot of impressions on Google Search Console. I knew I could do more with it but as I was learning and trying to make more content...I didn't know how. As I've progressed throught the awesome training here on Wealthy Affiliate and some research. I came across this easy method of giving more to Google to what Google already recognizes.
I added some more keywords from Google Search Console keyword suggestions in the right context and maintaining the flow of the article and....bingo. (check out the training)
It is now ranked page 1 on Google (it was already page 1 of Yahoo) after implementing this simple method last week!
Of course I used Jaaxy and my keyword list to keep track of those new keywords.
Long Tail Keyword Ranking
OK so this keyword is long tail (6 words) that might be used for what people are actually searching for. Its one of many in this particular post.
I had long wondered why my posts were doing well on Bing and Yahoo but not well on Google. One of the things that i've learned recently is new sites are in the "google sandbox" for a while. However you can get yourself out of that sandbox if you could get ranked for a long tail keyword with little or no competition.
Even more potential
I didn't cover this in this training yet nor in improving my post, but by including more long tail phrases (again Jaaxy) for those search terms that you are already getting rankings for (Google Search Console - Impressions) and making your content even more thorough around those long tail phrases can bring even more traffic. So there's even more potential for this post and others.
Meaning, I can add loads more long tail phrases and rank this even better for more keywords.
But for now, just by implementing this training and not much effort....
And there it was. Page 1 Position 1 on Yahoo and Bing. Great. But on Google...
Google Page 1 Position 1
This has delivered a big big confidence boost to me, but I would also hope to any Wealthy Affilaite member who's struggling with working hard but not getting any joy from Google.
Are you improving your existing content? making your good content even better?
Update 9th June 2019:
This post is now ranked page 1 position 1 for 3 search phrases and on page 1 for 3 others. It is bringing me TONS of traffic and also business income and interest, particilarly in the last month. I'm delighted!!
Now I see the benefits of free, organic traffic
Update 10th September 2019:
I now have 3 search phrases on Google Position 1 on Page 1, but more importantly some recent articles to go back into Google Search Console (per my training) and optimise.
Some of these are ranked position #5 or #6 on my first writing so that's great. Applying the on-page and off-page SEO methods we are all taught here on Wealthy Affiliate.
But I have 9 more search phrases in the top 50 which is great. So after 3-6 months letting Google "marinate" them, it's exciting that by applying this training, I can get many many more search phrases on page 1 of Google.
