Ranking on Google can be a difficult task, but it’s not impossible. In fact, if you focus on finding low competition keywords with the help of a tool like LongTailPro or AHrefs, you can rank much faster than you would by targeting high competition keywords. This blog post will walk you through the process of finding low competition keywords and ranking your website quickly and easily!

If you have a relatively new website, it takes your low competition keyword around 2 to 4 weeks to show up in the organic search results.

When you’ve created a new blog post or landing page for your website, you want that page or article to show up and rank quickly in organic search results on Google or Bing.

This is usually not that easy, especially if your website is still relatively young and has little authority. Therefore, you should only focus on low competition keywords. A great tool to find low competition keywords is LongTailPro. You can read more about how to use it in this blog post.

Once you’ve found a low competition keyword, the next step is to rank for that keyword on Google or Bing. Here are a few tips:

  • Use the keyword throughout your article or landing page, including in the title, meta description, and H tags.
  • Optimize your images by including the keyword in the file name and alt text.
  • Create backlinks to your article or landing page from high-quality websites.

You can rank for low competition keywords relatively quickly if you follow these tips!

With which keywords can I be displayed in the search results?

When I used to create my first websites and blogs, I didn’t know anything about keywords and keyword difficulty. I just wrote an article, chose a short title, and put this article online. Then I wondered why after a few months no one had noticed my article… And many people have the same problem!

In order for an article or website to rank high in organic search results on search engines such as Google, Bing, or Yahoo, you must first research which keyword you should focus on in order to have a good chance of showing up in organic search results.

It’s no good if you want to write an article that targets the main keyword “Make Money”. It will not work. With this keyword “Make Money” you will probably NEVER appear in the search results!

There are keywords that are just too competitive. Many of these short and simple keywords are already taken by the “Big Players” on the web (websites that have thousands of backlinks, have a lot of high quality content, are very authoritative), against whom WE have no chance since these “Big Players” simply have too much authority.

What are low competition keywords and how to find them?

You should focus on keywords or long-tail keywords (keywords made up of multiple words) that have little to no competition.

If your website or blog is relatively new (up to a year) and has little content or blog posts, you should focus on very easy keywords, keywords that have a keyword difficulty of 5 or less.

Going back to the “Make Money” keyword example, this keyword is extremely hard! You will never rank for this keyword in the organic search results. Therefore, you should rather focus on a long-tail keyword such as “How to make passive income as a student”. With those long keywords that consist of multiple words.

Don’t try to rank for high competitive keywords!

The best way to find low competition keywords is with the Long Tail Pro keyword tool. You can read more about how to use this keyword tool in this blog post.

Once you have found a low competition keyword, it’s time to rank for that keyword on Google or other search engines!

By targeting low competition keywords, you can rank much faster on Google or other search engines, which brings me to the next point…

How fast can you rank with low competition keywords?

If you have a relatively new website, it takes your low competition keyword around 14 to 28 days to show up in the organic search results.

Of course, this is only an estimation, because there are many other factors that play a role in how fast your rank on Google or other search engines.

These include, for example:

  • The quality of your website (design, loading time, etc.)
  • The authority of your website
  • The number and quality of backlinks to your website/article
  • And much more!

Why it is so important to have a high-quality keyword tool?

Of course, I know that it is sometimes difficult to pay for a premium tool… but most of the free keyword tools that are available on the internet are usually very inaccurate or provide completely wrong data… that’s why these tools are also free!

If you want to see your articles or your website on the first page of Google and co, sometimes you have no choice but to invest in a premium tool.

That’s exactly how I felt at the beginning of my career. In the beginning, I used the various free keyword tools and then I wondered why my articles or my landing pages were still not showing up in the search results on Google after two or more months.

I invested a lot of time to write these articles and the content for the various landing pages… but it was all in vain… because I just didn’t know what low competition keywords are and how to find these low difficulty keywords.
