The 8-Step SEO Strategy for Higher Rankings

The 8-Step SEO Strategy for Higher Rankings

In this video you’ll see my exact SEO strategy.

Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll learn in today’s new video:

#1: I’ll show you how to do keyword research. The keyword research game has changed A LOT over the last year or so. Today, you want to find “Opportunity Keywords”. I will explain what they are and exactly how to find them in the video.

#2: You’ll learn how to create content that ranks today. Traditional content formats (like list posts) don’t work as well as they used to. So if you want to rank on the first page of Google in 2021, you need to change things up. Specifically, you need to make sure that everything that you publish has a “hook” that will push bloggers and journalists to link to you.

#3: How to build backlinks. Yup, link building is still a super important part of search engine optimization. But the game has changed. Today, it’s all about getting white hat backlinks from authority sites in your industry. And I show you how to build legit links using proven link building strategies.

#4: Skyscraper Technique 2.0. This is a modern-day spin on a classic content marketing strategy. Skyscraper 1.0 still works. But to rank your site for competitive keywords, you need to use The Skyscraper 2.0 approach too.

#5: Lots of advanced SEO tips, examples, case studies and more.

  1. Wow, so cool. Recently I was doing some research on SEO and I landed on your website and read one of the guides. It was awesome and helpful. And now I was looking for some SEO things to listen to on youtube and here you are again <3 I love your content. And the fact that I found you on different occasions in two different places and liked what you do is a great prove that you're a master of SEO 😀 😀 😀

  2. Great checklist, but saying that a keyword is good because there's an ad which means someone is bidding on it isn't quite right. Google will choose it's own keywords that it thinks are similar enough to what you have targeted. This doesn't necessarily mean people have chosen that keyword specifically.

    They do it far more these days than they did at the end of 2019 when this video was created, but they still did it.

    Having said that, it's a great list that still stands up today, even if you've changed some of your content for the searches that you're demonstrating here.
