Can you guess how many keywords I rank for?
Well, you are probably going to say 477,000 because I used that number in the title of this post. 😉
And it’s true, just look at the screenshot from Ahrefs. It shows the number of keywords I rank for.
But what’s crazy is that I am in a super competitive niche… digital marketing.
So, are you wondering how I did it?
Well, it starts with proper keyword research.
See most marketers start their keyword research with tools like SEMrush or Ubersuggest and they type in a keyword like “SEO”. You then get a list back with hundreds of keyword suggestions with cost per click and competition data.
And once you have a list of keywords you like, you probably do what most marketers do, which is to start inserting them into your website or creating content around the keywords.
Does this process sound familiar?
Well, of course, it does because that’s what everyone has been teaching you to do.
But what’s wrong with this?
This process is like gambling…..
