The majority of WA members are obsessed with finding low competition keywords for their pages and posts on their websites. But do you know how to rank on Google page 1 WITHOUT a target keyword? It is simple, and Kyle mentions this in one of his Bootcamp keyword training videos. Just write and publish an informative piece of content without a target keyword.
Does that sound contrary to everything we are taught about keywords? It might to the newbie or novice but it is the truth, and not because Kyle said so, but because of how Google really ranks your website content. On the following pages I will show you examples.
HERE IT IS IN A NUTSHELL
Google ranks your website content based on ALL of your words that it indexes and not just on your target keyword. This is one of the main reasons why we keep hearing/reading that “Content is King.” It is because of your entire content with natural keywords that can rank you highly.
YES…your target keywords are important for your marketing efforts but like Kyle says, “keywords are not the be all and end all of your content creation.” As soon as I learned that, creating content became less stressful for me and eventually rankings improved.
So what this boils down to is… If you cannot come up with a good enough target keyword, or a target keyword at all, just write your informative piece of content without it. Google will still rank your content. And if that content has a lot of great useful information, it will naturally contain other keywords.
This is why I advise WA members to not replace already published content with new content and better ranking keywords. It is always best to ADD content but not to delete any that is already indexed because you could be getting rid of some natural keywords that Google is ranking you on.
