Do you want to start a new blog and would like to Rank on Google Search Engine First Page Within a Few Days of writing your content?
In this article, I am going to explain how I rank my blog contents on the first page within a few days of publishing them on my new blog.
BRIEF GUIDELINES TO OPTIMIZE YOUR NEW BLOG TO RANK ON GOOGLE WITHIN A MONTH.
I have used this procedure recently and it’s working perfectly on a new blog.
1. Buy hosting together with a domain name (Good Expired domain name for fast results).
2. Pick a niche. For this tutorial we prefer, “Scholarship”
3. We will niche down to “scholarship opportunities”
4. Insert the target keywords on the blog title, tagline & blog description (meta descriptions)
6. It’s compulsory to install the Table of content and Rankmath plugin.
7. When setting the Rankmath plugin; Disallow Google from indexing categories, tags, and pages (as in page 1, page 2 … I Hope you understand the page section am referring to?).
8. Publish a minimum of 10 blog posts on Scholarship niches only, verify your blog with the google search console, and submit your sitemap also.
HOW TO GET BLOG POST IDEAS
Search the main keyword on Google e.g scholarship opportunities
Scroll to people also asked and click on any of the questions there. For example:
✓Schoolarship Opportunities for African In 2022.
✓How can I get a scholarship in UK.
✓UK Scholarship For Nigerian Students 2022.
✓Scholarship Opportunities In Canada
✓Scholarship Opportunities In Finland
Pick the questions and write a well optimize (SEO) blog post on them. Interlink them and submit the blog posts’ URLs for indexing through the Google search console dashboard.
Observe the results from the indexed blog posts.
It’s good to do your keyword research before you start writing content. It would allow you to know what people are actually searching for and which keywords to focus on in your content. It’s best to use long-tail keywords, especially if your blog is under 8 months.
Do you know why? You’d like to get more easy rank keywords on LTK’s
I use Ahrefs to do my keyword research.
After you complete your Google SEO keyword research and have a list of Google keywords you want to target, it’s time to write! Your SEO keywords need to appear in your content. However, don’t overuse the keyword in your content so that it won’t look spammy.
Place your most valuable keywords in:
* Body of the text.
* Meta title
* Meta description
* Image ALT attributes
After publishing a new blog, it’s advisable to link your new page from several other pages on your site, using your keyword as the anchor text. This makes it easy for Google crawlers to index and rank your page.
After publishing the content with the on-page SEO instructions above, another thing you need to do is to build links to the content. It would help increase the visibility of your content and make it rank fast.
Make sure to create internal and build external links from outside sites.
Getting backlinks from sites related to your niche will cost you money, but it will give you a rapid boost.
That’s my method of blogging
Building Backlinks to Your Blog
I have two methods of building backlinks.
1. Paid guest post
2. Link exchange
Paid guest post is my best method of link building as it allows me to get backlinks from my competitors.
What’s the guest post?
Guest posting is the process of writing content for another website in order to attract backlinks, traffic, and visibility.
Most websites will charge you to publish on their sites.
Depending on your niche, some websites will charge you $50-$100 for each guest post. While some will charge you higher depending on their DA and traffic.
TIP: I don’t look at DA while doing guest posting. It’s better to get backlinks from a blog with 20 DA and 20k traffic than a blog with 50 DA and 1k traffic.
Most sites with high DA with no traffic have a bad link profile. So it’s a waste of time and money to get backlinks from such sites.
Look for sites in your niche with organic traffic and do your guest post.
If you don’t have the money for guest posts. The second option for you to get quality backlinks without paying a dime is through link exchange.
NOTE: the link exchange I’m talking about is not exchanging links from two domains.
Here is what I’m talking about…
I have many blogs, (though not all of them dey rank well o)
I’m getting guest post requests on some of my blogs that are ranking well on Google.
So let’s assume I got a guest post request on okejiri•come, instead of me collecting the money and publishing the guest post, I’ll tell them to find me another site with traffic for link exchange.
So after publishing their guest post on okejiri•com, they will publish my own guest post on another site.
NOTE: I didn’t say you should trade links with two sites as it will hurt your SEO.
The kind of link exchange I’m talking about involves 3 sites. (I don’t know how to break it down again o, English dey hard me)
You can use this method to build backlinks to all your blogs.
You don’t have to wait until you get guest post requests, you can reach out to site owners.
You can reach out to 10 sites in a day and 2 would be interested.
Using Google Trends for Your Blog Keyword Research
It’s not always about searching for low Keyword difficulty as a beginner.
When starting out your blog, yeah it’s advisable to sort for low-difficulty keywords using Ahrefs and all but the truth is low Difficulty keywords won’t give you those tractions fast.
My blog at 2 months old started getting traction from google for a keyword of high difficulty of 70+
What did I do?
1. I used google trends for keyword research and started writing when I found out no big guy in the industry was ranking for it.
PS: Don’t always use google trends for keyword research because most of the keywords tend to be seasonal
If you are to write 10 blog posts a week as a beginner, 3 out of the 10 should be from Google trends.
To learn how to use google trends? Search online.
The keyword that was on a difficulty score of 70+ was gotten from google trends and I rank no 1 for it, to date.
2. I got backlinks for that content, about many. The truth is, the more backlinks, the more rankings but all have to appear naturally not just almost immediately. There are so many ways of doing that.
3. I structured my content in a way that google will immediately understand what the post was all about.
4. If you watch income school very well, you
will know about the “Battleship Method” that is what I applied and it helped—yeah I research a lot.
When you start up a new blog, use Ahrefs to find low KD keywords (even if it doesn’t have much search volume).
As time goes on, when you’ve dominated small and have small authority, you can then target mad keywords me.
NOTE: I don’t use the Ahrefs premium version. I use the free keyword generator and their free site explorer.
