How can I boost my focus keyword to rank higher?
« on: 02-05-2018, 05:17:27 »
Hey guys! My first post here and new to SEO, hopefully you can help me to understand how everything works based on this article I just published: newbielink:http://"" [nonactive]

So this post is about budget traveling and the focus keyword I choose is "keep travel costs low", which appears 3 times in my 2000 words article.

My main question is how to rank on the first page now for that keyword. I understand it takes time and good content to get ranked, strangely the very first results for that keyword are Forum posts that I have created to promote my new article! Can anyone tell me how it is possible to rank #1 and #2 for that keyword within a few hours?

I would however like to rank up high with my own websites to get direct links in from Gooogle search rather than the indirect links from the post I did in the forums.

Getting high value links back from big and famous websites with high traffic is obvisouly the best thing. The second best would be to get links from other blogs. 2 questions on that:

- writing useful comments with a link to my site mostly is done with nofollow links and they are not helping too much I suppose?
- I should try to make relationships with other bloggers and make them link to my content. Does that still help?

Now I have also posted this article in a bunch or Facebook groups with a lot of good feedback so far and over 100 shares. Seems like they got resetted after I shortened my slug.

What else could I do to achieve a higherr ranking? I would also like to rank higher for other focus keywords such as "Budget travel", "travel cheap" etc etc - they all mean the same but as I understand, you can only have 1 focus keyword in your article. Or should I for instance change 2 of the 3 "keep travel costs low" into one of the other variations to get a better reach?

Hopefully someone can help me to understand and troubleshoot on this example and Im curious if I will actually rank higher! Once I fully understood how it works, I will hopefully have a good SEO setup for all my upcoming articles!

Thanks so much,
Traveling around the world since 2014.
