Keyword Ranking

by payojovo 17 replies
Hello again everyone!

I did try and search this topic but didn't find the specifics I was looking for.

Here's my question...

When trying to rank for a keyword organically they say copy what your competitors do and do it a bit better.

I translate this as the following:

If the #1 search result page has 20 backlinks with x keyword density and content length of x. All I need to do is get 21 baclinks, x+1 keyword density & x+1 content length.

Is this true?

Thanks in advance for your help!

    No this is not true, because the page on 1st rank is not just because of keyword density and backlinks. There are many factors affecting a rank of a page like Domain Authority, Page authority, spam score etc.

    Now a days LSI is also important for using keywords.

    engaging content rules now since RankBrain

    if your content does not get dwell time, engagement etc... everything else in my opinion doesn't matter

    When trying to rank for a keyword organically, there are 3 main things you must do before trying to copy your competitors. You must:
    1. Optimize your site (on page) for your targeted keywords
    2. Add relevant, unique content to your site on a frequent basis
    3. Build backlinks to your site (homepage & inner pages) on a consistent basis. The backlinks should be dofollow, contextual (surrounded by text related to your niche/keywords), on sites with a high DA (domain authority), etc.

        Don't copy your competitor, you will never rank and you will not be able to copy exactly as well...

        We can't know the value of just one link, how strong or how weak it is... so counting backlinks don't work....... also those links were not built in one day or week, try to understand here.

        It may be that you may rank in less than 21 links as well..... Invest your own mind, do something unique, think how you will be able to give value to the public....

    Nowadays, SEO has become very hard.If you keep an eye on SERP with Moz bar you will see the comparison between those sites characteristics according to the position.
    There are some pages which have no much backlink but they are in the first position.On the other hand with more backlinks, some pages unable to achieve this position.

    Rankings depends on on-
    • High-quality content-Have to be informative not only bigger in the word.
    • Your citation, trust ratio, DA, PA, and Spam score.It can be increased by creating backlinks in High DA and PA site by checking it's Trust ration [above .5], Spam Score below 4, ensure the topic relevancy.
    • Your existing traffic.

    Ok Look. In Network Marketing You Only get PAID for Recruiting and Retailing Product Sales. Anything else is amateur. Meaning you don't get paid for. You either want to talk to people 1 on 1 on line, face to face, or telephone. There is over 30 Million marketers in the world and They ALL try to do the same thing. But non of them are using the PAY methods. What is it that you do...

    It would be good if it was as simply as that but there are so many other ranking factors. Making sure you have relevant anchor text on your inbound links will also make a big difference just as the opposite can cause poor serps.
