Avoid 1 Mistake to Save +6 Months of YOUR Time!
Would you like to save 100's of hours and make faster progress at Wealthy Affiliate?
I got inspired to write this quick article after reading Nathaniell's awesome post: Avoid These 5 Newbie Mistakes To Shave WEEKS Off Your Starter Progress
My Biggest Mistake When Starting...
When I got started here at Wealthy Affiliate, I was literally hitting my head to the wall.
I wrote dozens and dozens and dozens...
And dozens of articles in vain.
Basically nobody read them.
Ever felt like that?
I made one huge mistake that cost me A LOT of time...
I wasn't targeting any low competition keyword with my posts.
I was just posting new "high quality" content on my website and hoped that it would get ranked.
Basically nothing got ranked and I wasted tons of time.
1. Every article targeted keywords with QSR less than 50 (on Jaaxy).
2. They were review posts. (How to posts were too competitive to get ranked)
3. Included the keyword in URL, Title, first paragraph, and then included related keywords in sub-titles.
That's pretty much it in a nutshell with keywords. I've written about it in other posts, in 2 YouTube videos and in my short training where I shared 10 tips on how I got 100 pages on top of Google.
Quick Conclusion - Target a Low Competition Keyword ALWAYS
I thought, "Well, if I just write some 'high quality content' probably it'll get ranked on Google."
Many other people have thought the same.
But the reality is...
That it won't get ranked and you may end up wasting endless hours like I did.
My Strategy Nowadays...
I've shifted my main focus from my blog to YouTube and other platforms for several reasons.
First, there's much less competition on YouTube, and even if there would be competition, it can be actually a good thing because you can get to suggested videos. On Google, a lot of competition simply means lower rankings for you.
Second, I enjoy creating videos more than writing articles.
