I Love Being Ranked The Worst Of The Worst
Keyword research can actually be quite fun especially when you've found a nice hidden gem.
I reserve a good amount of time to keyword research and one thing that I've learned is that a low competition keyword can actually be very difficult to rank for......At least for me.
One thing that happens to me quite frequently is that I'll find a real nice keyword that has very low competition, like a QSR of 10 or less with an average of 100 or more searches per month.
Looks great and from everything I've been taught here at WA this is a great keyword to target. Not to mention very very relevant to my niche.
BUT......And that is a huge BUT.......I am the king of not ranking for low hanging fruit keywords.
I'm not sure if this happens to everybody but I often end up ranking like 20th position or 30th, 40th, 50th or not ranking at all for keywords that have a fewer than 20 QSR according to Jaaxy.
This not only annoys me but it makes me question everything I've learned.
One main reason this annoys me is because sometimes I'll rank on page 1 for a keyword that has very high competition. It just doesn't make sense.
That's my rant for the day.
