    First of all, for give me if I am not requesting in right place, as I was little confused on this.

    I have a challenge:

    The challenge is I have a website with home page and offers landing page (only 2 pages website) developed using WordPress.

    The home page is planned to have content / articles posted on regular basis and these articles will be linked to other page which has offers.

    The offers page will have only offer details and lead capturing form and this will have link back to home page.

    so total there are only 2 pages but the home page will have content updates at every alternate day or weekly once.

    How do I achieve Google top rank for competitive local niche and generate leads?

    This is the challenge in-front of me and please help me and guide me how I should able to achieve free targeted traffic and generate leads for a local niche market.

    Thanks in advance for everyone who helps me achieve success for my challenge project.

    Thanks, Rena

    If you are looking for the easiest and fastest way to achieve page 1 with landing page, in my opinion, is to buy a keyword domain. Research a highly searched keyword and check for domain availability (exact keyword in domain). If you find that, you can almost be guaranteed a page1 in results ;)

    thanks Ultras03, for the suggestion but, I tried this method some time back with exact keyword in domain with huge content pages but it was not successful.

    anyways the domain name should be important and should be keyword rich as you suggest, thanks again.

    I Pm'd you "ultras03" is absolutely right. But as I told you in the pm there a BH way too essentially needs the main keyword in the domain too. Not as an exact match.
    Ex Keyword you want to rank for doody domain can be hellodoody10.com, and it depends on the competitions too, but everything can be done
    Hope this helps,
    Al

    Why do you make it paramount to have the landing page listed high(er). Look at it from visitor's point of view. He searches for something from the niche and expect to come to a page with a solution. If that laconic page somehow ranks, you would till struggle to get them to subscribe at the optin, as they have hadly a clue of what you're offering. Iw ould rather otpimise the home page, give them a chance to look around and have a bottom opt-in bar for them to give you their data once they're ready. And as a safety measure, set up an exit pop with an offer they can't refuse. What are you using for the lead gathering? Aweber? Getresponse?

    Thank you Markbh.

    I wanted to capture leads to WP DB using the Lead Capturing form and not using any 3rd party services for lead capturing.

    I thought of using the home page for writing product reviews / articles etc. and another page with only offer content and lead capturing.

    However, the bottom line is with a single page / squeeze page how do I achieve Google Top Rank for a Local Niche and generate leads?

    Onsite SEO - Get the keyword density on the page to about 7%
    - Get your meta tags right, i.e. good description, keyword, and title tags

    Offsite SEO - a ton of f-in backlinks.

    Depending on what keyword you're targeting, it's really not that hard, just going to take some work. Find someone on BHW to do an xrumer blast, find out where your competiton has links and manually post to those sites
    Code:
    http://www.backlinkwatch.com/
    to find out where they links.
    Do a video blast that has the link in the description, etc. Write articles. Typical backlink building strategies...

    Then be patient and wait. If it's a long tail keyword you're targeting you could have good results in a week or so, maybe less. If it's a highly searched competitive keyword, it may take months. But if you keep working at it, you'll get the results you want sooner than later. I've had squeeze pages go from page 38 to page 1 in 2 months time just doing some basic SEO. Just take your time and build slowly.

    Another tip, try setting up an autoblog on the same domain as your squeeze page. You can use this to build several thousand pages of content on your site, but make most of the links point to the squeeze page. Also, utilize the thousands of pages of content to do some internal linking. Post a static link that comes up on each page for the keyword you're targeting. Google does look at internal linking, so this can be a big boost. You can search "twisted autoblog method" for help setting up the autoblog. And while you are waiting to rank, that method will give you a steady amount of traffic to your site/squeeze page.

    And while we're on it, set up multiple autoblogs that have links all pointing at your main squeeze page. It works, so try it out.

    Why does it have to be a single page?

    Why don't you make the "single page" part of the blog as a sticky post.

    Then whenever you add new posts to the site they will appear UNDER the sticky post.

    I can easily rank a wordpress blog in a local niche with about 4 or 5 pages of content, but remember you need to get some backlinks done too. (Outsource it here on BHW)

    It's easier than just having the single page. And it gives you room to target different keywords.

    Thank you so much music4mic for your valuable steps.

    It seems I could able to see a light on the tunnel in a long distance while I still have to wait for the train to arrive on platform.

    Thank you IamNebula for your suggestion.

    I am going with single page since there is no much content for many pages however, the single page is planned to have regular new content updates which keep adding to the same page as new posts.

    I am new to the terminology sticky post. can you please give more details on how to make this from WP (if any plugin) ?

    Also I read so many posts on this BHW people talking about driving huge traffic with WordPress Plugins but, not sure which are the best suitable WP plugins that can achieve to drive local targeted traffic.

    thanks everybody helping out in this success.

    Off the top of my head I can't remember exactly where the option is to stick your post on the front page.

    However 2 seconds on google returned this

    In the Post editor find the "Publish" section.
    Next to "Visibility" click on edit and then check the "Stick this post to the front page" option there.
    Click save and you're done.


    I haven't checked this but it is something along these lines.

    Get your ass onto google or youtube if you need step by steps mate :D It's all on the net already.

    Hope that helps

    Plus, whats the point of making content, then deleting it when you put new content up.

    You will lose any benefit the original post was giving you.

    Keep all the content on the blog IMO

    He's definitely right about that. You'll be working against yourself if you delete content to put up new content. I would definitely consider making new posts/pages rather than deleting as you go. Deleting posts will confuse google!
