5 SEO mistakes for beginners that are ruining your website traffic and what to do instead :
We are at a time when SEO and digital marketing have become more saturated and more competitive than ever. With over a billion websites on the web, SEO is no longer an easy or open playground.
Many times, I see that many of these new websites make the same mistake that will ultimately give you little or no SEO results and they will only waste your time. What is it? It is targeted at keywords that are too competitive.
These days, effective keyword research is an increasingly important skill for digital marketing specialists. Not only do they need to know how to develop a good keyword list, but using keyword research to find out what topics to write about or what phrases to use while writing is very important, especially to discover which ones are not competitive.
Today, doing keyword research effectively is a priority for any website or SEO. If you’re looking for a competitive term, like car insurance, you’ll probably see some great brands pop up. If you are a new website, it will be almost almost impossible to compete with those brands. Which is the answer? Target long-tail keywords.
You’re missing out on a lot of search traffic if you’re not creating blog posts around longer search terms.
For example, suppose you have a dog food business and are trying to break into the online dog food space. Chances are you want to go after keywords like dogs, dog food, pet food, as that would generate a lot of search traffic.
The monthly search volume for dog food is approximately 135,000 searches per month. But the payment difficulty is 100 and the SEO difficulty is 77. That is incredibly high. Entering as a new company, there is little or no chance that it will rank well unless it has an established brand and high domain authority, which most new companies don’t have.
Instead, you should focus on long-tail keywords, such as allergy dog food or older dog food. These keywords have lower monthly search volume, but higher quality search traffic because they are more specific and will be converted because they are more specific.
For example, allergy dog food has a monthly search volume of 9,900 and an SEO difficulty of 38. That means it will be easier to rank for. If you’re trying to figure out how you can rank for these terms or where to find them, check out Ubersuggest. Type a heading term you’re thinking of searching for, you don’t need to know about long tail variations, just look at the heading terms, type them in, and then go to the keyword ideas report.
It will give you all the other longer queue variations and even break down the SEO difficulty. Look for terms that have an SEO difficulty score of 40 or less. It will be easier for you to qualify.
You should also look for those that have a volume of at least a few thousand per month because volume doesn’t always mean clicks. And, when you do all of this, it will help give you more ideas and more ideas so you can produce content.
There is also a tab for questions about Ubersuggest, prepositions, comparisons. These are also more places where you can find more keyword ideas, more content ideas. That will generate keywords that will convert to revenue.
In Ubersuggest, there is a report of content ideas. When it’s very specific, it will show you all the content that has already been created on the web based on social shares, backlinks and search traffic. It even tells you, when you look at the estimated visits, all the keywords that the article classifies.
When you’re trying to figure out which keywords to follow, also look at all the pieces of content that have some of those similar keywords because this will give you ideas of what you can create that can help you not only drive traffic from all three, right? You don’t just want to generate traffic from Google.
