Do yourself a favor: STOP Trying to Rank #1 For Keywords on Google // What if I told you that ranking number one on Google won’t necessarily make you more money? Today I’m going to share with you why you should stop wasting your time trying to rank number one on Google.

Can you guess how many keywords I try to rank number one for? Zero.

I don’t even track my own rankings.

Now let me break down why you should try to avoid trying to rank number one on Google for a lot of terms.

First thing, one, rank tracking is really inaccurate. So when you think you rank number one, you may not rank number one. Every region has different results because of localized search. Every person, every state, every country is looking at different results based on how they search.

Google is trying to adjust the results to be personalized to each individual.

So it’s not about trying to rank number one, it’s about trying to provide The best user experience so more people want to see results from your site versus someone else’s site.

The second thing is ranking number one, doesn’t mean necessarily mean that you’re going to get most of the traffic.

Did you know according to Ahrefs, only 49% of the time, ranking number one gets you the most traffic? That means 51% of the time, all the other spots get the rest of the traffic.

It’s not about being number one, it’s about getting most of the traffic.

The third thing is, you don’t have to rank number one to get the most traffic.

For example, there are certain keywords that I rank, let’s say, Number 3 or number 4 for, like SEO tips, but yeah, I get more traffic than the number 1 listing because I take up the rich snippet.

If you take up rich snippets, you can also rank higher. So when people are googling for a term, don’t just think about, “oh I want to rank high, I need to build more links” “I need to do more internal linking”.

Make sure your content Addresses that term. And here’s what I mean by that.

If someone’s typing keywords like SEO tips, they’re looking for SEO tips. So your article may break down seven tips that can help them out and when you clearly define these tips, you’ll notice that you have a higher chance of being pulled in as a rich snippet and that’ll help you get more traffic than if you weren’t there.

The fourth thing is not all keywords have intent.

For example, I rank on Google for terms like online marketing, internet marketing, SEO. Those terms may seem amazing and they are competitive but guess how much revenue they drive?

Very little. Why? Because anyone who searches for those keywords is looking for basic advice. There’s no intent there. People who search for SEO are looking for, “Hey, what is SEO?” “How does it work?” “How do Google rankings work?”

Those warm people that aren’t going to pay me for my ad agency, but on the flip side, if I rank for ‘SEO agency’, I’ll generate way more revenue.

So in other words, you need to look for keywords that are intent based.

And last but not least, rankings won’t guarantee your success.

Here’s what I mean. If you do all the right things to get to the top, but yet no one wants to go visit your page, you’re not going to stay at the top.

A good example of this is Ahrefs was trying for a very long time to rank for backlink checker.

They created content, internal links, they did everything that’s possible to rank at the top, but no matter what they did, they weren’t ranking.

It wasn’t that their SEO was bad, it was that users didn’t care to visit their page. And the reason being is they were looking for a free backlink checker while their tool costs money.

Once Ahrefs figured out that, “hey, we’re not doing what’s best for the user” and they gave the skimmed down version of their tool for free and they only provide, let’s say, 100 links, I don’t know what’s the exact number is but it’s somewhere around there.

What they found is, their rankings shot up to the top of page 1. Why? Because they gave users what they wanted.

So even if you do all the right things to rank at the top, but you ignore the user, you’re not going to rank, you’re not going to convert them.

You need to understand what they want. And using tools like SurveyMonkey will help you get that information.

How to rank on page one, or even number one, I’m gonna teach you how to own the first page. The first tip I have for you, is to interlink your content. So, let’s say you’re trying to rank for a term like SEO, or online marketing. If you have a article that’s super in depth about that topic, you can create other offshoots.

Don’t duplicate your content. A lot of people when they’re trying to rank for a term like online marketing, they’ll take the same content and regurgitate it throughout their whole site. If you do that, Google’s not gonna wanna rank duplicate content from your own site multiple times, that would create a terrible user experience. If you do that you’re not gonna do well, so don’t duplicate your own content. Write fresh, unique stuff that you already haven’t written about.

Build links. If you build links to your site, you’re gonna rank higher, you know that, but you also wanna build links to every version of your post that you’re trying to dominate page one for. So using Ahrefs, they have a feature called link intersect. You can put in your URL, as well as other competitor URLs, and it’ll show you who links to your competitors, but not linking to you. The beautiful part about this feature is, if someone links for three, or four, or five of your competitors, but not you, there’s a good chance you could potentially convince them to also link to you, because you know they’re open to linking to other sites within your space. So, using the link intersect tool, you can see who’s linked to other online marketing articles, or other online marketing sites. You see that, then from there, what you’ll wanna do, is hit up those sites, and asked them, hey, you got a detailed post that you cover A, B, and C, that your competition may not, ask ’em to link to you as well. And don’t just do that for your main post on that subject, but also do it in regards to your secondary and third pages that are also around that same topic.

Promote your articles on the social web. From Facebook, to Twitter, to Linkedin, you’ve heard this before, you wanna promote your main articles, as well as your sub-articles that are also around that topic. But what most people don’t tell you when it comes to social promotions is, and you know this, you share a article on Twitter or Facebook, most of your fans or friends aren’t gonna see it, so you don’t wanna just share it once, you wanna share it four or five times over the next six months. By doing this, you’re gonna continually get more eyeballs, more shares, indirectly, some of those people may link to the article, leave a comment, this will help with engagement, better user metrics, and that should help with overall rankings in the long run. And the last tip I have you for you is, no one likes outdated content. You publish content, it gets outdated over time, it’s natural, even if you write about tools and tips.

Do you want to rank number one on Google in 2018?

Well, I hate to say it, it’s tough.

Ten years ago it used to be easy, but now it’s hard.

And you know what?

Unless you watch this whole video, you’re not going to be able to rank number one on Google.

Hi everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and I’m going to share with you three ways you can rank #1 on Google today.

#1: Focus on content
Google has this update called Hummingbird, and with Hummingbird, websites who just have content on everything won’t do as well as sites which focus on one single niche and are super thorough.

You want to be VERY thorough with your SEO content. Poke holes in your content and fill them all up, so then that way people are like, “This is the end all site “that you should end up reading “if you’re interested in dating online.”

#2: Optimize your title tag and your meta description
Have you ever done a Google search, and noticed that every time you do it, there is this link at the top, and then there’s this one sentence with a link at the top is called the title tag.

And the description below is called the meta description.

Now think of it this way, if you search for the phrase online dating, and you don’t see the word online dating in neither the title or the description, are you going to click on the result?

Well if you are, there’s something wrong, because why would you click on a result that isn’t related to what you’re looking for?

In addition to that, have you ever searched for a term like online dating? And have you ever noticed that the word isn’t in the title or description?

That’s because Google tracks who’s clicking on what listing, and they’ve learned that when a keyword is in the listing, that same keyword that you’re searching for, they know you’re way more likely to click through.

So in your title tag and your meta description, make sure you include the keyword. But you can’t just add the keyword, “online dating,” right?

The easiest way and what I would do and I wish it was this simple; I will just put “online dating, online dating, online dating, online dating.”

If I could put it 20 times so people would know that the article is on online dating, I wish I would get more clicks.

But it’s not that simple.

Yes you have to include the keyword in your title and your description, but it has to be appealing. If it doesn’t flow in a sentence, it’s not easy to read, and it’s not appealing or evoking curiosity, no one is gonna click through.

#3: Use Google Search Console

Did you know that Google gives you a tool that teaches you how to rank number one on Google?

Yes I know that sounds ridiculous but it is true, and it’s called Google Search Console.

If you’re not already a user of it, sign up.

It doesn’t cost a dollar. You’re missing out if you’re not using it.

I can’t emphasize that enough. So now that you’re using Google Search Console…give it a few days because it takes some time to populate data. You’ll see a screen that shows Search Analytics and this shows you all the pages on your website that are getting you traffic. But the cool thing about Google Search Console is they also show you which articles are getting impressions.

Take all the keywords you’re getting impressions for and start adding them to your copy.

Now we have an article on Instagram, and it teaches you how to get over 300 targeted Instagram followers per day.

The article is around 10,000 words. When I first wrote that article, it wasn’t 10,000 words, it was roughly 2,500.

I went to Google Search Console, I saw all the people that are searching for terms related to the article, I added them within that article. I made it more thorough and you know what?

My SEO traffic more than tripled to that article. Yes it is that simple. And when I made that change, it didn’t happen right away, but I noticed the results within 50 days. That’s not a long time.

Now that you’ve learned these three tips, I challenge you in which I want you to take these tactics and implement them, and then after you implement them, in the next 45 days I want you to leave a comment with your results. Because if you’re not doing well, that means I’m not happy.
