Checklist for a Blog Post

I’ve been a full time Affiliate Marketer since 2015.  I’ve built several websites.  Each time I do a new page or blog post for one of my websites, I follow the exact list discussed in the video above to make sure I’m doing everything I can to get my blog post ranked in Google.

Getting Ranked in Google

There are several tips and tricks you can use to help with search engine optimization.  These are all the little things that Google uses to figure out which website pages and posts are the most relevant for what a person is searching for on Google.  For example, if someone type into Google, “How to sharpen my knitting needles,” (silly example, I know), then Google is going to search the internet for the most helpful article or blog post to help that person.  They use certain “check points” to do this.  They look for/use:

  • The title of the article or blog post
  • The meta title of the article or blog post
  • The meta description of the article or blog post
  • Google will read/glance through the first paragraph of the article or blog post
  • They’ll see what the quality is…meaning, are there pictures?  Video?  Anything else discussed in the article that’s relevant?

See What I Mean?

So it’s necessary, if you want your content to be seen by people on the internet, to follow certain steps to make sure Google gets all the info they need to find YOU.

How to Get Ranked in Google

Let’s talk about this all-important concept of how to get ranked in Google.

How to Get Ranked in GoogleFor too many internet marketers, getting ranked in Google seems like an impossible feat. They believe they have no chance of accomplishing getting ranked on the first page of Google. Do you fall into this category?

If so, please keep reading and let me prove to you how you can get on the first page of Google if you are willing to do a few things. I was taught step-by-step how to get ranked in Google by a company called Wealthy Affiliate.  You can read my full review of Wealthy Affiliate HERE.

Getting Ranked in Google is Not That Hard

First off, it is not rocket science. People get so wrapped up into what Google thinks and how Google’s internal “ranking brain” is thinking at any given moment, but in actuality it really does come down to one thing:

Quality of Content

If you can create content that a reader would enjoy, then you are going to get ranked. This is the content Google is looking for and this is the content that they boost in ranking every single time.

What are the websites that Google doesn’t like?

The sites that are doing things to try to trick them into thinking their content is quality.  Backlinks, spinning, guest blogging, duplicating content.  There are lots of things that people are doing that adversely affect their rankings because it simply is not natural.  These are called “black hat” techniques, and typically these will work for a few months to a year, then Google catches on.  If you are doing these things, please stop. You are heading in the wrong direction.

On the other side of the spectrum, there are “white hat” marketers. They ranked 10 years ago, and they will rank 10 years from now because they are building their content for Google (and Google will continue to chase their content).

Wealthy Affiliate Taught Me How to Get Ranked in Google

How to Get Ranked in Google

Wealthy Affiliate has a Free Starter Membership and a Premium Membership.  In the Free Starter Membership, you get 10 free classes on how to do affiliate marketing, how to create a website, etc.  Also within the Free Starter Membership are 10 free classes called Affiliate Bootcamp.  This is where you learn much more detail about things like getting ranked in Google.  (See Lesson 6 above)

How to Get Ranked in Google

Wealthy Affiliate will teach you that there are only FOUR things you need to get RANKED!

1.  A Domain.  A domain will improve your search rankings, in particular if you have a .com or a .org domain. I don’t recommend buying a domain that are not one of those (.com’s are the best). You can host up to 2 websites on your own domains with a Free Starter Membership at Wealthy Affiliate, an I believe up to 50 with the Premium Membership.  They are hosted in a well managed WordPress platform which includes website monitoring, website security, website speed boosts, 24/7 website support, and unlimited access to their one-click install website builder.

2.  Understand Keywords and SEO (Search Engine Optimization).  If you understand how to find low competition keywords within your respective niche, you will open the door to unlimited traffic. Finding low competition keywords is easy when you know what you are doing and this is what you learn within the training at Wealthy Affiliate.

You get access to an entire Keyword/Niche Research classroom within premium and unlimited access to the WA keyword tool. There is also an amazing amount of SEO training within WA Premium, 100’s of tutorials and hours of live video classes. You want to be an expert at this stuff, Wealthy Affiliate Premium is the place to be.

You ideally want your keywords to have less than 200 QSR (competition) and there are billions of keywords out there across every niche that fit this criteria.

3.  Quality Content, with Consistency.

Content is KING, right? Wrong. This statement has become all too cliche in the industry these days. Creating a successful business does not require you to be a writer or an author, it requires to you be able to create QUALITY communicative content in your niche. Content that focuses on engaging the reader. The reader is the one that will earn you revenue (and they need to trust you first), never lose site of this.

As a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, you are going to quickly become a content expert and have full access to a great deal of copywriting training, as well as FULL access to SiteContent, the ultimate content creation/management platform.

There is a good deal of video and live class training on the subject along with MANY content marketing experts within the community.

4.  Authority (which happens with time).

If you have ever heard about anyone’s path to success, you will realize that it didn’t happen in a week, a month…not even in a few months. It usually takes a new affiliate marketer about three months working at this before they  make their first dime. That is normal and that is the process of getting your business up and running.

If you don’t have the time to become successful, then it simply won’t happen. What I can tell you is that at Wealthy Affiliate, they have the time and patience to help you reach any level of success that you want in terms of rankings, traffic, and conversions.  You will start to see your website getting indexed and rankings within your first few weeks of going through this process. That is exciting and that is the “stepping stone” to much bigger things.

An Example of How This Works

In the Bootcamp training at Wealthy Affiliate (taught by co-owner, Kyle), Kyle started a website completely from scratch and within four months and some part time work, he created a full time business with a website that gets over 1,300 clicks per day (for free) by getting ranked and indexed in Google.

With the training at Wealthy Affiliate, you get to look over Kyle’s shoulder and see exactly how to rank, how to climb up the ranks in Google, and how to get Google to absolutely LOVE your website. 🙂

How to Get Ranked in GoogleYes, You Can Get Ranked in Google!

So I guess I want to leave you today by saying that you, yes YOU, have everything you need to get all the rankings you want within Google with a Premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate. You will have a competitive advantage over the rest of the industry by being a member of the thriving community at Wealthy Affiliate.

semrush how to find keywordsSEO Keyword Position Tracking – Keyword Overview Report

Choosing the right keywords is crucial if you want to be successful in your marketing efforts.  No matter what your website’s topic, you have to use keywords that will produce relevant, quality traffic. Finding these keywords requires that you not only learn how to do proper keyword research, but that you get good at it.  And the SEMrush Keyword Overview Report is the perfect way to start.  You can find out the search volume and competition for keywords easily and quickly with SEMrush.  You can also assess the organic and paid competition level for the top 95 million keywords. You’ll also be able to see which domains are currently ranking for any given keyword.

One of my favorite features of SEMrush is that it offers me alternative keywords related to any given search term.  Sometimes, no matter how much I brainstorm, I come up blank when searching for keywords.  The alternate keywords SEMrush gives me are often better than what I came up with.  I end up finding keywords that can do a much better job of driving the right traffic to my website. As I’m sure you know, we need to be able to judge how a keyword performs if we want to have successful organic marketing campaigns, as well as successful paid marketing campaigns. SEMrush shows you the approximate cost per click, advertising competition level, monthly search volume and the total number of results returned by the search engine for the given query.  You’ll also find CPC distribution.

 SEMrush shows you the keyword’s volume activity.  The number displayed represents average monthly numbers, which is important to keep in mind when performing keyword research.  In addition to knowing how a keyword performs, you also need to know how difficult it will be to rank for that keyword.  SEMrush has a competition metric that will explain how hard it is to rank for any given keyword.
 
SEMrush makes it fast and easy. 
In SEMrush, there’s no need to search through multiple pages to get a clear picture of the market and who currently ranks for the keyword you’re researching in both organic and paid results. SEMrush shows you exactly which domains rank for the keyword and in which position on the SERP.  This is critical, as I’m sure you realize, because if you notice a number of authoritative websites holding high rankings for a certain keyword, or if you see several advertisers bidding on a certain keyword, then you may decide not to use that keyword.  Getting ranked for keywords with the highest search volume can be extremely difficult.  Therefore, it’s helpful (necessary!) to know this ahead of time so you can use alternative keywords. This will make it easier to see results from your efforts.

Conducting your keyword research with tools like SEMrush is an absolute necessity.  It is, without a doubt, the biggest difference between success and failure when it comes to internet marketing.  Unless you’re willing to do the digging, you may not find those hidden gems that can yield fantastic results!

best rank tracker toolBest Rank Tracker Tool – Positions Tracking Rankings Report

Position tracking is a critical part of measuring your SEO & PPC performance.  Monitoring your rankings on a daily basis allows you to see and evaluate your current visibility, and to react to any major changes from search engine penalties or algorithm updates.  The Rankings Report in the SEMrush Position Tracking Tool can help you see how your website is currently ranking for every keyword in your project.  And you can also track where your closest competitors are ranking for the same keywords.

This report provides you with a complete list of all of the keywords set up in your position tracking campaign, and also lets you modify the domains and URLs you want to track.  Once you’ve added a competitor’s domain or other URL to your report, there will be a column of rankings for each, which will show you every keyword and each competitor’s/domain’s/URL’s ranks in the selected time frame.  There’s also a “difference” column where you can quickly see any changes that are happening.  This feature is, in my opinion, what makes SEMrush the best rank tracker tool out there.
