It's not that difficult to rank your website for specific keywords...
As long as you have the right strategy.
So, in this post I want to introduce you to a very simple sniper method for getting your site ranked for dozens of long tail keywords.
Next you will need to connect your site to Google Analytics.
To do this I use a free WordPress plugin like All in One SEO Pack.
Once you set your site up you'll simply paste your unique Google Analytics Tracking ID into the plugin and you're good to go.
Additionally you will also need to connect your Google Analytics account to Webmaster Tools so that you can see the keywords that people are typing into Google in order to wind up on your site.
To do this you'll go to Acquisition > Search Console > Queries.
Then click the button that says Set up Search Console data sharing.
On the next page you'll scroll down and click the button that says Adjust Search Console.
On the following page you'll click the Add link.
On the next page you'll scroll to the bottom and click the button that says Add a site to Search Console.
On the next page click the Add A Property button and type in your website URL.
Then you'll return to the previous page and refresh the page.
And select the website you just added and click the Save button.
The next thing you'll need to do is start creating targeted content.
You can either write this content yourself or outsource it.
I recommend concentrating on long tail keywords for a specific niche.
To get ideas and suggestions on long tail keywords to target and write your articles about you can use a free tool like KeywordTool.io.
If you're writing at least a couple of articles per week, in a few weeks Analytics should start to collect and show some data in your back office.
To find this data you'll login to your Analytics account and go to Acquisition > Search Console > Queries.
As this list of keywords starts to grow, export it by clicking the EXPORT button at the top of the page.
Then add the list of keywords to ProRankTracker, a keyword tracking tool.
In about 24 hours ProRankTracker should give you an update of where you're ranking for each of those keywords.
From here you'll want to concentrate on boosting the keywords you're already ranking highly for that at least get some searches per month.
To do this you can use a link building software tool like Money Robot.
Money Robot is pretty simple and intuitive.
All you need to run it is a VPS (virtual private server) which is just a fancy name for a virtual computer that you can login to and control in the cloud.
Then once you get Money Robot installed, I usually just select one of their default Small or Medium campaigns to boost my keywords.
I'll plugin the page that's ranking.
And then for the keywords I'll take the main keyword I'm targeting along with about 8 or so more.
How I get the other 8 or so keywords is I'll take that main long tail keyword and type it into Google.
Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and copy all the related long tail keywords and plug those into the campaign.
And just click START.
I try not to have more than about 10 campaigns running simultaneously.
But that's pretty much it.
Once campaigns are complete you can delete them and create new ones for other keywords.
And to scale up you just rinse, lather, and repeat this simple process.
