My site is dedicated to share with you how to be successful in your online business. And the bottom line of success in Search Engine Optimization is getting on the top place in the first page of search engine results.
Importance of first page rankings
SEO consultants and experienced internet marketers will ultimately tell to you that in order to be successful, you need to be on the top of search engine results page. What’s the big deal about getting first on search engine results page?
Finite amount of money for a potential earning
You see, in this kind of business and like any other else, the battle is with your numbers. There is a finite amount of money out there that you can potentially earn. And this is one truth that some internet gurus would contradict on their teaching.
Let’s give an example.
If you want to start a business on selling “Dog Training Video” courses in U.S., there are only 1,600 exact local monthly searches on this keyword.
So however you may want to sell 5,000 video courses per month, only 1,600 people wants buy dog training videos. 1,600 is a finite number. Did you get my point?
And with a 11,600,000 competing pages that talks about “Dog Training Video”, that is a high competition to engage in investing money, time and effort.
There is only one place for success, first rank!
According to research, the first place on a search engine results page gets the whooping 50%+ of the overall traffic of a particular keyword. That means, if you want to get the largest slice of the money pie in that market, being the only 1 first place on the listing is the place to be. Anything else is just a waste of again your time, money and effort.
Also, keep in your note to target the number 1 ranking in Google. Because in addition to our research, 85%+ of the global share of searches come from the BIG G. You should be aiming for Google only.
If you want to make money in SEO, you need to be number 1
If you notice, I’m just repeating my sense here. Because really, the pot of gold is in the first place.
If you think you can’t aim for #1 on a particular keyword, go ahead and find another one. Like they say, “there are plenty of fish in the sea” for keyword with lower competition and with a sufficient amount of traffic. But really, and I need to emphasize this, if you can’t beat the first place on your target keyword, you will be kicking yourself later for wasting time and money.
Bring the competition on
If you pursue to take the first place spot of your keyword, you’ll need to displace someone else’s website and this is called competition.
Of course, your competitor will not like to be defeated and lose the battle. He will eventually exert more effort to get back on the top place again. You need to get used to this arena because this is a serious business you’re engaging.
It is evidently clear that success in this business is in the first place of the competition. Make sure you gear yourself with the right mindset and tools.
Now we know the importance of first page rankings, anybody wants to be on top?
