About 90% of the people that search for a particular keyword in Google or any other Search Engines visit only the top 3 results displayed on the first page of the search results. Then they would simply search for another keyword if they don’t find what they were looking for.
So the question is how can you go to the top results to get the maximum traffic? Obviously, moretraffic means more money. And by applying this simple trick you can do it quite easily.
Suppose, you are on the second page or on the last of the first page then what can you do to outrank your competition and get in that top three which gets the maximum amount of traffic?
Well, firstly I would like to say that your On-page optimization must be better than your competition. You must have a better content than the others or else this method may not prove to be that much effective for you. Because “Content is the king”.
So, if you have done your On-page optimization correctly like using the keyword effectively on your content, using meta tags etc.
And also your basic Off page optimization like creating backlinks, social bookmarks etc.). Then you can apply this technique.
So, here it goes-
First,you have to do keyword research.
Find the top 10 keywords that for which you want to compete and just do a simple Google search and find your top competitors.
Make a list of all your competitors- only the top three to five in each search.
Next step is removing your bad links (spammy links or the links that you got from low quality sites). Then you have to use a software called SEO spyglass (free trial available which can perform limited searches, but works quite well).There you have to just put all the URL of all your competitors one by one and find the high quality powerful backlinks which are helping them rank high in the search engines.
Then just go to those sites and brainstorm and think how they have got those backlinks – like some guest post, blog commenting or any other way.
You repeat the same process and get all those powerful backlinks. And in a few days, you will surely outrank them if your content is better or almost as good as your competitor.
