Having a listing on page one of Google is like winning the lottery in a way. I mean there are only a few spots on the first page of the results for any search term and potentially millions of websites trying to get there. So how could anyone say that this is easy?
Well the simple matter is that most of the sites that are on page one are there because no one else has done a good enough job of knocking them off. By using good fundamentals and doing proper research you are well on your way to a page one listing.
However there is a lot to consider.
For instance look at this screen shot:
There are 183 million competing pages and only ten spots.
So do you think you could get to page one for that keyword?
Maybe but probably not.
But all is not lost.
The secret with Search Engine Optimization as it is in
life is to pick your battles.
Believe it or not there are a lot better keywords to target that are a lot easier to rank for. By targeting the better keywords and doing the right things on and off of your site you can easily get to page one for that key phrase.
BUT YOU HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING CORRECTLY!!!
Skip only one step and you will not achieve the desired results.
And today I am going to let the cat out of the bag!
