WikiHow and "How To" Keywords

2 replies
Hello guys,

I just noticed that whenever you search on any how to's WikiHow almost always takes a place in the top three. I've read about WikiHow on the forums and the most common response was that they were very well beatable.

Has this changed with any recent update, or are they still beatable?

Some examples

Search: How to lose weight - WikiHow Ranking: Places 2 and 3
Search: How to pick up girls - WikiHow Ranking: Number 1 spot

Thanks in advance for your replies!

    Those two searches are multi-million dollar potentially businesses by themselves. If you were to try and beat any site for those terms you'd need to build the site completely around those topics.

    Hope that's not too much of a buzzkill. WikiHow is beatable, but those terms are very, very competitive.

      Well, I don't want to go into those niches, mine is way, way smaller. The thing is that if WikiHow isn't even beatable by A-Level marketers, how can I expect to beat them?
