I need some advice, so here it goes...
I have built a brand new website in the corporate training niche and have set everything up for my SEO campaign (content, on-page SEO etc.). Throughout my site which is primarily based on providing training courses, I have about 20 keywords I want to rank for. All 20 keywords have mix of competitiveness; 5 low, 10 medium, 5 high competition keywords. The thing is I want to get 1st page rankings for at least 15 of these keywords, the low and medium competitive terms, in 6 months.
Here is the question I want to ask: Do I start my campaign going after all 20 keywords (low, medium, high competition) at once or is it advisable to start targeting the low competitive terms first? And, how many keywords at once?
To me, it makes sense to go after the low competitive terms first and thus to get some quick wins. On the other side, wouldn't it also makes sense to start targeting more competitive terms first as well, because they will take longer to get rankings for? For example, my high competitive phrases are actually my 'theme' keywords, the industry I work in revolves around; 'corporate training', 'management training', 'leadership skills training' etc. Or should I totally disregard going after these keywords in the beginning?
See, I need to get this website ranked within 6 months. So, I wonder what is best to get the most effective results? Could you please advise in how I should structure my link building campaign if my time frame is 6 months?
Thanks! Any advice, tips and help is much appreciated!!!
