    Hey, how would you guys go about ranking a low comp keyword (long term & safe methods - no churn and burn!) with $250?

    I have an idea in mind but would love to hear your guys thoughts.

    I have been out of SEO for about a year and am getting back into it. Thanks!

    Build some web2s with appropriate articles (cost for articles $20).

    Buy some niche PBN links using your keyword as anchor for 2-3 times, rest of the anchor texts use variations and closely related keywords. ($100)

    Make sure that on page is good.

    Wait a week or two after the PBN service is delivered.

    If you got results, enjoy. Otherwise, invest more in closely related content on your site and interlink the articles, and get more links.

    That may or may not work depending on what you consider a low comp keyword.

    Lol... If you don't know how to do it, it doesn't mean that everybody else can't do it as well.
    @OP: First of all, I would make sure that on-site SEO is almost perfect. If it's really a low competition keyword, on-site should put the keyword within top 50 immediately if you do it right and if you really do it perfectly and with a bit of luck top 20-30. Read this & this thread for everything you will need for on-site SEO.

    Regarding off-site, read this thread, it contains everything you need. If it was me, I would make a cheap press release (if it's appropriate), some social network links and build few web 2.0-s. It should be enough if it's really low competition. If not, pump up the web 2.0-s with a tier 2. If that doesn't work either, point a couple PBN links at it and it should rank. However, as I said 2 times already, if you did your research right and it's low competition, on-site + web 2.0-s should do the job and that will cost you less than $250 if you write everything yourself.

    One of the more informative posts that I have seen on ranking a keyword. You should consider writing a thread.

    If it's low comp you will not need links.

    Get a license for yoast premium, get the on page to be perfect on every page. 1000+ on every page, pretty pictures, go high effort.

    Get it indexed, let it rock for 30 days and see where it is and go from there.

    Thats whats working for me, I'm rankig websites WITHOUT text content, is high metrics websites. Even good supn content for backlinks works good if the blog blocked ahrefs and other nasty crawlers.

    P.s I see many people working only on blogs here, shame .... what about the media websites ? go rank website like soundcloud with almost no text content...

    Since your KW is low competition, you can just build some web 2.0 and PBN links with High quality content. It would help you to get good results, hopefully.

    Be focused On-site SEO, make it perfect as much as possible. And $250 is fair enough for low competitive KW, i guess.

    Good luck!

    This is pretty much all you need to do for a low comp keyword.

    $69 for yoast premium = $181 saved.

    Web 2.0 and PBN links will work for ranking a low competitor keyword. Make sure the content should be quality and unique that will help you ranking on search engine.

    once thing i'm getting great results with is 2000 words of high quality content and then some on niche quality directories and blog comments, NOT using the keyword in the anchors though, then letting it sit for a month, that does most of the work then maybe a few PBN's top and you're done ;)
