Steps of our Strategy:

We Focus on Quality than Quantity to build SEO strategy and According to our Requirements and Targets then modified it time to time.

Choose keywords with Highest Volume and lowest Competition. We choose keywords with minimum 10,000 volumes and maximum more than 500,000 volumes. We focus on short & Medium Tail Keywords than Long- Tail Keywords. Because we want to reduce our Content Efforts & increase SEO Traffic.

 

Our Goal:

We Just looking for more traffic on the blog and want to monetize with Adsense and Affiliate Marketing.

 

First of all, I will give you an Overview of that Site:

It was a new blog less than 6-month-old with a highly competitive niche. One of my friends started this blog and I help him from day one to build unbeatable Strategy for this. It was a Blog So We focused to increase Traffic rapidly.

We use WordPress.org to Create Blog and use Premium Quality SEO Optimized Theme from MythemeShop & Yoast SEO Plugin (free) for SEO on Blog.

We use,

  • Fluid Responsive Design
  • SEO Optimized, Ultra-Light Theme
  • Page-Load Time Under 2 Seconds.
  • Premium Shared Webhosting
  • Secure with Https

We have Full Control On everything on the blog and Optimized our WordPress Blog for SEO by making some basic changes or Settings.

We just wanted Traffic for Our Blog that’s why we find all the niche related sites and analyzed with Ahrefs to Find Opportunities.

 

Keyword Strategy

As I told in every SEO Guide that SEO depends on the Keywords. Right Keywords can boost your SEO Traffic and Wrong Keywords can Increase your Efforts.

So I invest some time to find best Keywords that can be easily rank but having Higher Volume. Ahrefs helps us lot to do that.

We just searched other Sites URLs & Ahrefs show all the keywords of that site. By Using Ahrefs Filters, We Found the Gold which we were finding.

like this:

We use Ahrefs site Explorer & Keyword Explorer to find and analyze the keywords And Google Search to see the live results & data to do confirm.

We focused on Short-Medium Tail Keywords because these type keywords have Higher Volumes and Competition. But Not All the Short-Medium Tail Keywords have higher Competition. We found those keywords which were less competitive and having chances to rank easily.

 

Content Strategy

 

My Friend wrote all the Content for his Blog. He wrote almost 25 blog posts with 800-1000 word average per blog post. But the Content was High-quality & SEO Optimized.

We tried to make useful content. For this, we analyzed all the related results on Google SERP and try to beat them with more quality. To increase the Crawling of the blog we tried to publish minimum one post daily.

 There is always a difference between High-quality detailed guide & lengthy Content. There is no guarantee that 2000+ words content will always rank on Google 1st page.

 

SEO Strategy

 

Seo Strategy has been planned according to the Keywords, Site & your Niche Competition. If you’re doing everything with complete planning then it became easier to figure out the working steps of a strong strategy.

As I told before that we use Higher Volume Keywords for our blog. We also optimized our blog for every aspect of SEO. But blog niche has good Competition level. That’s why we further analyzed our Site to plan an awesome SEO Strategy for our blog that will help us to boost our rankings. After analyzing our own blog, we analyzed our competitor’s Sites and their Backlink profiles to overtake the competition.

  • And built a simple but effective strategy for our blog and just focus on Quality: Quality in site Design and Structure,
  • Quality in Content,
  • Quality in SEO & Links

because we had the need to get Authority & trust in the eyes of Google as well as for our audience. That’s why we focus on just High-Quality Efforts and Techniques.

 

Then started work on that…

First of all, we start work to improve our On-Page SEO and make some changes to Title, Meta Description etc. where we can to improve SEO. And also make sure that everything is alright In Google Webmaster Console. There were no Issues or Errors for our blog.

I always remembered that,

Google Shows Popular, Google doesn’t make popular

 

We built a strategy around this concept…

Google will rank if you are a well-known or someone than No one. It means you need some trust to rank easily in Google SERP. And Backlinks are the best way to shows to Google that you are trustworthy or someone. Then we just do that.

 

We started Backlinking by following our Competitor’s backlink profiles. But some of their Backlinks were low-quality links so we avoid those links and try to get better links. Their low-quality backlinks remains a plus point for us. I personally try to keep our backlink profile more clean & with higher Quality.

We use some of the best high authority sites to get backlinks like as Wikipedia, Wikihow and become successful to get backlinks from these sites (we use very relative pages of these sites to get backlinks for our blog content).

Wikipedia, Wikihow are No-follow sites But having the highest authority and Help us to get authority and trust in Google’s eyes.

No-follow Links Cant provide Link-juice but can Help you to get trust and authority for your site to rank Higher. As well as Keep your backlink profile natural.

 

These high authority links help us to boost our Traffic and our keywords started to rank on Google. We hit the Google Top 2 for 100,000+ volumes keyword and Top 5 for the keyword with 300k+ volume and ranked on many related & other keywords with more than 50000 & 10,000 volume/month.

Almost 150+ keywords started to rank on Google Top 10. From them

35+ in Top 3,

140+ in Top 10

 

It’s all happened in less than one month. Because we are ranking on high volume keywords & also at higher positions (not on 9th or 10th positions) that’s why our traffic boost rapidly. And we hit 100,000+ in that month.

We increased almost 6594.44% Organic traffic for our blog in just less than a month.

Before that, we did not focus on social media to promote our content. We just focus to increase organic traffic because it is a long-term source of traffic for a site.

 

Conclusion
