If You Find Dominating Long Tail Keywords is Hard, This Should Make It Really Easy For You...

31 replies
Hi,

2 months ago, I did a niche blog and posted only 10 blog posts
with long tail keywords which I have researched on.

And I have never touched it for the last 1 month.

The results??

A moment ago, I did a check for a keyword which I was planning to
dominate.

My blog is on page 1 of Google, Rank 6 and my Ezinearticle is ranked
on 25 on page 3. A search of the keywords revealed they are about
8,000,000 sites!!!

Of course, the aim is to rank well for page 1, preferably on #1 and #2
position. :p

* * *

Now I will share with you step by step on how you do the same thing.

I have heard from many that it is hard to grap the concept of article
marketing and most did not really make full use of it because they have
yet to understand the concept....some eventually give up on article
marketing and others end up splurging lots of money in churning
articles which are not effective...(I myself made this mistake
when I just started off article marketing too..paying few hundred
of dollars for articles that are not keyword optimised...)


I feel this info is going to be useful for you and help you to really understand
the power of article marketing. It is really simple and I will show you how.

And what you will be expecting from this post is you will learn
  1. how to quickly write a good article within a short time and
  2. how you should use the article to help you with your keywords domination.

> > >

1. Research:

Keyword research:

Find a profitable topic...one good resources is http://www.amazon.com/
and also http://www.google.com/trends

Your keyword research should have these 2 basic criteria:
1. more than 300 searches per month => https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
2. less than 20,000 competing sites when you do a google search in quotes. => use http://www.google.com/ and remember to put in quotes eg: "keyword"

Choose a long tail keyword and use it for your domain name.
keywordtips.com, howtokeyword.com, allaboutkeyword.com
*Remember you domain MUST have the long tail keyword in it.

How to write articles:

Depending on the niche you are doing, you can just
google. Google.com is the best place to do research.

For example, I want to write an article on coping with
panic.

I just google "tips on coping panic"

Then, I visit the first 5 related urls and take down
one key point or tip.

Then, I just form my own opinion and add any additional
new tip or advice I have.

* * *

2. Structure of article:

Remember you must have a title, an introduction
paragraph, a body,a conclusion and a resource box.

For title:

You are have simple titles like "5 tips to..."

Remember it must have a keyword which you are targeting

For first paragraph:

Always discuss a problem which your readers are facing
or will face and state that this article will show them
a way which they can solve it.

For Body:

You can always start off with tip 1, then tip 2...so
it is more organised and easy to read.

Always keep a paragraph short and sweet and at most
3 lines.

For last paragraph:

Do a round up and conclude the most important point
or tip.

For resource box:

Just write simple: To find out more tips on how you
can..., click here.... >>Your blog url here<<

or you can read more about the article >>here (your blog url)<<

Ensure you hyperlink the keyword you are targeting to
your blog or site.

* * *

After the articles get approved in EZA, set up squidoo lens
and submit the articles and link them back to your EZA.

Then, you should submit to social bookmarking sites using
socialposter.com and bookmark everything....

You can also use submit RSS feeds using RSSBot offered by BIG Mike
or any other RSS submitting software.

Rinse and repeat everything and that is all you need to do.

* * *

3. Automating it:

The key is to do your best to automate everything using softwares
or you can pay someone to do this for you while you make money
at the backend.

That is it! This is all to writing an article and leveraging on them
which will bring more targeted traffic to your blog/ site.

Of course there are other more advanced methods on article
marketing such as more backlinking from higher PR sites and so
on...but the key thing is to master the basic concept, practice
it, take actions and internalise them....then you will be able to
improve and move to higher level.

To your success!

Have a good weekend!

Cheers,
John

    John, thanks for this post.

    You mentioned automating this process. Can you provide a bit more detail on how that could be done and examples of software?

    Thanks!

      Hi Brad,

      Thanks for your kind words.

      I realise newbies find it really hard to grab the concept...
      so I find presenting them and my list in simple and easy-to-understand words do help them...

      It is a chain reaction....they find easier to understand (and less over-whelming)...then they feel better about themselves...
      and they will be in a better state to take actions...

      Frank Kern taught this...be yourself...

      Cheers,
      John

    This is a nice outline, John!

    Also, once people find their "topic", Google has a really good Keyword research tool (to find the number of searches and competing sites) at this link https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal.

    Select "Exact" in the drop down menu for "Match Type". That way, the search volume results show a pretty good approximation of how many sites are competing for the keyword.

    Then people can use the same long tail keywords that they use for their domain names in their article titles, too, for extra SEO power.

    Cheers,

      Hi Jason,

      For social poster, you need to have an account in every social bookmarking site....

      initially it may be a burden to sign up for every one...but once u done it, it will be really easy...

      and remember your tags...they are the same as keywords...

      so all you need is to bookmark your urls

      Cheers,

          Monetisation of blog comes in many ways.

          One of them is through giving free articles, teaching a method
          and recommending a product or service on the last page which
          can help them to achieve the result that they want.

          It could be a paid service by you to help them write articles OR
          a related affiliate software product to automate submission of articles to dorectories OR
          it could be a referral to someone who is willing to do that (and you will get a commission for every referral)

          Hope this helps.

          Cheers,
          John

    John,

    It's amazing how we get so lost in all the new "whiz-bang" products that come out promising the world, when you just outlined something anyone can do, easily.

    I have done pretty much the same thing for years with great results. No magic. No B.S. - just a bit of elbow grease and patience.

    Nice job.

      Hi Mike,

      Patience is the key and this model can be easily duplicated. =)

      Other follow-up tasks can be to track conversion, finding ways to
      make more money and so on.

      Thanks again,

    Hello jhongren,

    A good opening post.

    By the way, if you want to boost this even more, choose a keyword rich domain name of less than about 25 to 30 charachters and you will see even faster results.

    Google is being kind right now ;-)

    John,

    Thanks for sharing!

    Just a note: You begin the thread saying you started a blog with 10 posts with your keywords, and then didn't touch it and got the results... Then you describe writing articles and submitting them... doing social bookmarking... RSS feeds, etc...

    Don't get me wrong - your info is great, and I REALLY appreciate you doing this. I just wanted to point out that this could be a bit confusing for a reader (especially a newbie).

    Hope this helps... I often have my wife read over the reports and ebooks I write to help me with the same thing. We often forget how challenging things can be for someone new to the system!

    I know this is just a post on a forum, but I can see from your Sig that you have some products related and a mentoring program. Feedback like this can be really helpful in refining your products and making you a better teacher.

    Much respect to you!

    Ron

      Thanks Ron for the feedback....

      To further clarify, with softwares like RSS Bot (offered by BIG Mike) and socialposter.com, the RSS submission and social bookmarking is required to be done just once. =)

      and that is it. =)

    Hey John great post. Anyone reading this make sure you don't pass by this step!
    "Choose a long tail keyword and use it for your domain name.
    keywordtips.com, howtokeyword.com, allaboutkeyword.com
    *Remember you domain MUST have the long tail keyword in it."

    I have a few long tail keyword sites that are in the top 2-3 of both Google and Yahoo. And that is without any article marketing or link building at all. They are blogs that I have set up to post every 2-3 days and that is all.

    So that is the most important step. keyword rich domain name!

    Thanks

      Thanks Kevin....perhaps this is the first important step we have to make....

      keyword rich domain...

      and as you mentioned, blog posting can be done every 2 to 3 days or even twice a week, depending on our personal schedule.

      Cheers,

    Great post and well explained John! You could probably accelerate this process even more, by choosing a keyword rich domain name of a short amount of characters and generate even quicker results! Just my 2 cents! Thank you!
