URL: brandonandlisa.com Purpose: Lead generation is the goal and All I care about is ranking #1 on Google for the keywords I will use.. Let's use the example that I will use "Home Business" as my root keyword. Please let me know if I am following the correct parameters in determining if I should use the keyword... Research Strategy: I first look for global monthly volume in phraze match only for keywords I want to rank for with parameters of 3,000 - 5,000 global monthly searches. Then I go to regular google search and enter the keyword in phraze match and look at the amount of pages.. If there are under 100,000 pages, that fits my criteria. Then what I do is look at the first top 5 results and see if they're are an authority site. If so, then I choose the keyword. In hindsight, here is an example. Please let me know if I did this correctly and any suggestions appreciated. KW: "profitable home based business" global monthly results were 4,400. KW: "profitable home based business" phraze page results is 86,000 pages. So I believe that I could rank for this keyword and show up as number 1 if I do the following things. If this is incorrect, please make some suggestions on what I can do differently.. SEO strategy So what I would do is have the keyword "profitable home based business" show up first in the title tag. Have it in the ALT of the image. Have it be the ONLY keyword in the meta keyword tags. Have it in description, H1,H2 tags. And mention the word 1-2 times in the body of the post. Then I would spin the article and then submit it through an article submission software in 2-3 different variations for all the external links. Next, I would shoot a video with that one keyword and submit it through Traffic Geyser for more external links. Next, I would use onlywire and post all links backlinking to post through all social media..
