    When search kinds of questions Google always has results of "wikiHow" site
    I wanted to know how to promote a website in this way as "wikiHow"
    I mean, how do I promote my site with a lot of Keywords or if a lot of different search forms.
    I do not want to promote only 3-4 keywords, but to promote a lot of phrases
    I know once published information about website promotion as "wikiHow"
    Please help :) thanks

    Pretty sure I saw this same post elsewhere , did you have this posted elsewhere? ...

    Anyway to answer your question when you are building backlinks you are going to need to use branded terms and naked url to boost the overall site instead of individual keywords. Then you are going to need a whole lot of content with a lot of interlinking so you will rank for a ton of keywords. This is much easier to explain than to execute on so My advice would be similar to the last response in the last thread that was started about this ...

    It would be better to target a smaller niche that you can rank much easier as this would be a whale of a project to execute on.

    WikiHow is an established site that began back when it was easier to get free links and it was easier to promote. They built for years to get so many keywords ranked.

    For new sites you'd need to spend a fortune to reach anywhere near the number of kw's they do.

    Start small.
    Don't build wiki-how overnight. Instead build a site about something HIGHLY niche, on an easily brandable domain.

    Want to build a site like wiki-how, narrow down, start with something like "how to build a house", then narrow it down to "how to frame a wall", then again to "how to square a joint", and maybe again to "how to use a hammer", maybe another like "how to pick the right hammer for the job".
    Then build backlinks to your first level, then go up, and build some more.
    Go slow, plan for 2-3yrs and engage hardcore in outreach. Ask DIY sites to write a guest post for a backlink, post guest posting guidelines, use HARO: get some inner page backlinks this way, plus probably some social shares.

    I have a long term project like this, where I post 90% guest posts for free content. I end up rejecting about 90% of all submissions as well, because I look only for sites that are niche relevant, not sales/affiliate review type sites and NO spun/spam crap. In 2yrs, it has gotten 789 great posts, and it is increasing in the quality of posts being submitted, granted, it also increases the crap posts.
