It's actually possible to rank for a top keyword in just a few months. Not a keyword like “car insurance”, of course, but a high-volume keyword that could give you thousands of targeted visitors each month.

    I'll try this step by step for my next landing page. Seems well researched.

    This is a nice article with some good ideas. However, the problem with articles like this, in my mind, is that they focus on selecting nice keywords. As the author says, "Not a keyword like “car insurance”, of course, but a high-volume keyword that could give you thousands of targeted visitors each month."

    That's fine, but if you are working as an SEO in a good sized firm, or a start-up in a big market, your investors and founders might well want you to rank for "car insurance". In a previous role, my target was "fantasy football" in the UK. Now, I am trying to rank for "casino" in about 10 countries.

    That is a just my way of questioning how useful an article like this is for us as a group. We are probably trying to achieve much more than has been managed here.

      Everything has a scale. Working on top-tier keywords is literally an exponent of workload compared to anything beneath it. From what I've read the article is about no->mid-traffic words with little to adequate competitive spacing. It highlights all the things you learned long ago and they tackle it rather concisely. I don't see anything revolutionary out of the tried and true, but it is packaged nicely for anyone getting into the game or trying to make their space anchor a little harder.

    This is a great post. Very detailed and actionable.
    I could follow along quite nicely and I imagined myself pulling off one of these.

    However, he mentions at the end that email outreach is crucial for success.
    This is a problem. Outreach it is my weak point.
    I just can't force myself to use templates, and writing personal emails every time, hundreds of time, is NOT effective time usage.

    Trust me- I know.
