I hope that I could have read this post in 2015 when I was starting out in WA. I would have saved hundreds of hours writing useless posts that never get ranked (and also hundreds of $$$).

If you are a beginner I am 100% sure that this tutorial will save tons of your time and it will help you to get ranked faster on Google.


PS.Read until the end because the best tip is on the last page

Excellent training that you provided for newbies in any niche, Roope!

It is a fact if members here at WA are willing to put in the effort and follow the training that you explained in your tutorial a lot of their content will get ranked highly on Google!

Very sound practices that were a part of your training, sir!

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.

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