Over the past 6 months I’ve ranked 5 blogs in the top 4 positions for a multitude of commercial intent keywords. These blogs have generated leads in the mid 6-figure range while the cost to build them out was less than $10k: domain name, design, programming, press releases, and link building.
What few Direct Response Marketers know is that you can build out a long copy “ClickBank” style website that not only converts, but also ranks organically for targeted keywords. The information I am about to provide to you cost me a lot of money to acquire, months of R&D, and is substantiated by marketers that rank #1 for the toughest commercial intent keywords in the world. Enjoy!!!
Glossary Of Important Words
Targeted Keyword: This is the keyword you are attempting to rank for. i.e. If the keyword is “John Doe,” then we will refer to this as the targeted keyword.
H1, H2, and H3 Tags: An H1 Tag is a Heading Tag. Heading tags are used as a heading title for a page. Heading tags start at an H1 and go down to an H6 tag.
For example, the heading of Reputation Management post on the home page, where it says SEO “Reputation Management” is the H1 tag. The next heading on the page, “Why Go Through All This When You Can Hire A Reputation Defender?”, is an H2 Heading Tag:
Home Page Article: This is the first article on the home page a mini-site. These pages remain on the home page (static) and are not updated when you publish new content.
Static Page: This is a page of content on a website that remains static and IS NOT moved by new content. For all of our sites moving forward the HOME page will remain static. All other pages will be “dynamic.”
Dynamic Page: A dynamic page of content on a website is a page that is constantly updated with “new” content, and then archived off the its page. A good example of a “dynamic” page is the “blog” page on a website.
Anchor Text: This is the visible, clickable text in a hyperlink.
i.e. Targeted Keyword: “John Doe”
When working with John Doe, I learned he was a nice fella. His only issue was he drank a bottle of whisky every morning before work. John Doe’s wife still loved him though.
