In this 4-part training series from the experts at Wealthy Affiliate, you’ll learn how to find out who your main competitors are and spy on what they’re doing in order to outrank them in Google with your content. You’ll also learn how to see what’s working for them and why, which will help you to know what content ideas to focus on and how to create content that ranks.
Identifying and Spying on Your Competitors
This Google ranking course includes the following classes:
Class #1: Navigating Your Niche and Uncovering High Potential Keywords. Your first step to create high-ranking content is to do proper niche and keyword research. In this class, you’ll learn how to research your chosen niche to find awesome, low-competition keywords that you can actually rank for in the search engines.
It’s a good idea to create what’s called “pillar posts” which are long, thorough posts on a high-competion keyword in your niche. But those can be difficult to rank for, especially if your website is new. I personally like to Google whatever topic I’m considering doing a post about and see who’s already ranking for that topic, then look to see what the related questions are. I often find lower-competition topics that way. You can write a post for those, and link it back to a pillar post.
Class #2: Identifying and Spying on Your Competitors. Now that you have a list of keywords, you’ll want to figure out who your main competition is and spy on what they’re doing to get ranked. You’ll learn how to find your competitors and how to see what’s working for them and why. This is how you’ll know what content ideas to focus on and how to create your content in a way that will get ranked.
They say, there’s no sense trying to invent the wheel. There are likely other websites ranking regularly in your niche. Use them as a sort of “mentor.” The fastest way to become successful in any trade is to watch someone who’s already doing well in that trade. Don’t copy people, just check out what sorts of things they’re doing for ideas.
Class #3: Creating the Best Content on Google to Dominate the Competition. Once you complete your niche, keyword and competition research, it’s time to focus on building the content itself. In this class, you’ll learn the core elements that go into crafting some fantastic content based on the research you’ve done to use as the building blocks of your posts. You don’t have to be a professional writer to be successful, but you do need to follow the proven formula taught in this class.
Class #4: How to Build Lasting Success with Your Site. In this class, you’re going to get insight into how you can build a successful site for the long term. This involves creating related content, increasing the value of your site for your readers, creating effective promotions and more.
I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for more than 8 years now. I have two large websites. Because of my training from Wealthy Affiliate, I know how to come up with endless content ideas. They teach you how to create relevant content for the long haul. I personally have no doubts whatsoever that I cannot live long enough to create every post that’s possible for my website. Seriously. The training at Wealthy Affiliate is that good!

This is How I Started
Kyle is the person who taught me how to become a full-time affiliate marketer. I signed up Wealthy Affiliate’s Free Starter Membership back in 2015 to learn how to do affiliate marketing. As of the date of this post, it’s been seven years and I’m still doing it. I chose to do affiliate marketing as my full-time job, but you can certainly do it as a part-time business or side hustle to earn extra money. Regardless, the training at Wealthy Affiliate will show you how to be successful.
