In the beginning I thought like this, "Nobody wants to read long articles online so I will write only 500-700 word articles."

It was a mistake.

If you have seen articles from the best Internet marketers in the world like Neil Patel or Brian Dean, their blog posts are usually +5,000 or even +10,000 words. And guess what? Those articles are dominating Google! They get traffic with almost any keyword.

I took the principle that I heard from a few successful Internet marketers in WA:

Number 2 => Write blog posts minimum 1,500 words. (Preferably more.)

Sometimes I write 2,600 words, sometimes 900 words but my guideline is +1,500 words.

Without the next tip you can only hope for great rankings!

I really like this. It is easy to read, makes sense and gives us quick, simple reminders of where we can dive right in and make improvements to our existing posts and greatly improve future posts.

I never thought competition of 300 made sense for a keyword with lower searches. I stuck to low competition but those often had lower searches as well (in the hundreds). I have recently started doing posts with keywords that have higher competition (maybe 100-200) but have much higher number of searches per month (3,000-5,000). This seems to be working well. I haven't ranked on the first page with these posts yet but they are rapidly rising up. If it continues, I can see this strategy could be quite successful. I get search traffic on these keywords already even though I started with more competition.

I need to bump up my word count and my posting frequency and also start adding videos.
Thanks,
Jessica

Sounds interesting! I need to start it myself. Would you like to give examples what kind of keywords have you used?

Nice training.
I think sharing on social media is very important and it also helps with ranking if you get others to share your post privately or publicly. The more the better.

This is really great, in support of your last point my first 10 articles that I wrote as a newbie without any SEO or rankings or even a fully built site got over 2250 pages loads, and I never went in to update them so it wasn't me putting up those numbers - good helpful content is found magically out there it seems!

Also I was wondering does it ever worry you that when you ask for comments in here that people may also be copying your content and ideas?
