I owe these best blog ranking tips to Neil Patel’s The reason your blog post doesn’t rank. Thanks to Content Gorilla I’ve been able to repurpose the information on that video. Then with Grammarly’s help, I was able to create this post;
Best Blog Ranking Tips
You’re writing all these blog posts, but for some reason, you’re not getting any rankings, and search traffic from Google is non-existent. Well, it seems that Neil Patel knows the solution to our SEO problems. According to him, this is the number one reason our blog doesn’t rank.
The first thing Neil wants to know is exactly how many blog posts we’re writing a week? Neil asks the question because blogging is no longer a quantity game. When he first started blogging there was less than 30 or 40 million blogs. Now there are over a billion blogs.
Ranking Against The Multitudes
That is a staggering amount! That means we’re competing with a billion other bloggers! We can imagine how many new blog posts get posted every day? That’s why blogging has shifted from a quality game versus a quantity game. Back in the day, you could crank out tons of quantity, and you’ll do pretty well. Unfortunately doing that today doesn’t give you the same results that it used to.
But, there is a formula that you can follow that can improve your results. To get the required results, this is the step by step formula that you should follow.
The first step to writing content that ranks is to head over to Ubersuggest. The next step is to type in a competing URL. So take any one of your competitors that you know is ranking well and type in their URL into Ubersuggest which results in an overview page. This page shows you their traffic and all their search terms, within the region you’re targeting. So, if on Ubersuggest, you searched within the United States you’ll see that URL’s traffic just for the United States.
You can always switch the region if you want to target another country. Ubersuggest built their tool in this way so you can target your customer’s specific region versus from everywhere in the world.
Once on that page, scroll down and then click on Top Pages. When you click on Top Pages, it’ll show you all of the most popular pieces of content that your competitors have written, their traffic to each post, and when you click ‘View All’ under their estimated traffic, it’ll show you all the keywords that are driving those visitors. How cool is that?
The next step is to look for the keywords that drive most of the traffic, the most volume. Have a low search difficulty or SEO difficulty number, ideally under 50. Keep in mind; you’re looking for keywords that have a high cost per click. So, in general, if it’s over a dollar or two, three dollars, the better. When you find these keywords, those are money keywords. Next, go and search for them on Google.
So go to Google, search for one of those keywords. When you search, read all the articles in the top ten. Once you’ve read all the articles in the top ten, it’ll give you a good understanding of what Google is looking for in the articles that rank for that term, especially if you want to rank for it.
Quality vs Quantity A Best Blog Ranking Tips
The next step is to write a much better article. By better, I’m not talking about something double or even triple the length. Yes, you want something more extended and more in-depth. But it’s not all about length. It’s more about thoroughness. The reader has to find more in your article than in what’s already online. Perhaps you can write it, so it’s more easily understood. Did you cover every aspect of that article, that topic? For example, if it’s making a pizza, do you talk about the crust? How the water affects the crust and the taste.
Is it better to use bottled water or tap water? How should you cook your pizza? Do you cook the dough first and then put on the sauce? Do you cook through your dough a little bit, then take it out of the oven, put on the sauce, then the toppings? Go into more detail on the process involved in making the best pizza! By breaking it down step by step to even what kind of oven you should use. How about the placement of the pizza tray? Should it be in the middle, at the top, or the bottom of the oven? How long you should cook it for and the temperature—the more information you can supply, the better for the reader.
All these uses are so specific that when someone reads your content, they’ll find the article to be amazing because they got so much value from it. That’s the key to creating a fantastic blog post. That’s how you write content that gets traffic. It’s not about producing quantity. It’s about producing quality.
The last and also essential step is after producing your best content, email all the other sites that you’ve sourced. The sites you’re linking to and tell them you’ve linked to their site and how much you love what they’re doing. Tell them you linked to them in your latest pizza article supplying a link to it where the can check it out. With some luck, there’s a good chance they’ll share that article on the social web. Once you follow this research process, you’ll do much better. If you follow these steps, you’ll only write articles that rank.
No more articles that don’t get traction. Instead of wasting your time, you’re using it more productively.
I hope you found these best blog ranking tips of some value. If you did please share it around.
