Improve keyphrases near top 10 to get more traffic

 

Keywords No 4 and 5 have potential, and might be ranked in the TOP 10. You can:

  • introduce these keywords in H2-H4;
  • add a piece of content, using them;
  • check out whether pictures are SEO optimised properly. If the text does not include a picture, insert one, or a few related, and use these keywords in the picture name, alt and description. Remember about proper SEO optimisation, but not spamming (!)
  • you can publish an article, using these keywords as anchors, on third sites;
  • you can also analyse your own early published articles, and link them, if it will be useful to your readers.

If you do that in the right way, you might expect increasing numbers of keywords that will be ranked by Google. Remember to test only one action (e.g. introducing H2-H4), and see the results. If a keyword is promoted by Google, then improve other pieces in a similar way. If you have negative results – great! You know that you should seek another way. If you are at least somewhat good with SEO, test your own ideas. We are sure, they will work and bring excellent results. 

In an era of constantly changing algorithms, this method is one of the most powerful and safest. Google promotes websites where content is updated on a regular basis, a good piece of content will satisfy your readers and more ranked keywords will drive more traffic to a business or private blog.

Also remember that if a single method works perfectly for you now, it is not forever.  If you want to get more traffic, you should improve the site and content on a regular basis, also polishing previously published pieces. Test, measure results, implement and, … test,  and so on.

Also analyse previously published content, and find all pieces that can be polished. As a result an article will be ranked higher on more keywords that drive more qualified readers to a website.
