How can I rank for a difficult keyword?
I would like to know how to rank on keywords that are considered difficult to rank by some SEO tools.
Is guest posting a good method to rank or is there another method other than link building and quality content to rank an article in Google or Bing?
I think when a keyword gets difficult competition, it always gives more value to users. You may find the very little amount to a keyword which is very difficult to rank but google returns all irrelevant or garbage results. Right now google is smarter than the previous time.
But I can say that if there have no helpful or exact content what actually people want to get but the didn’t then you should go with this keyword and of course create massive value which other websites don’t. But compete with authority website, you must keep in your mind that you should build a good amount of authority backlinks as well as good quality articles.
Content is very important for the best ranking on search engines or keywords selection what your industry niche. B2B eCommerce
Well, what I have learned from my experience is that if your website is brand new, then you will surely need a to of backlinks to rank your website. But it will still take at least 6 months to rank your keywords if your website is new. there are many websites that offer free guest posts, you can start from there. I did it for my website and it really gives good results.
I think guest posting is the best way to increase the domain authority for your website, and it will also rank your keywords.
Oh, ranking difficult keywords is a hard task, as it needs to follow some smart strategies. I can share some activities on how I did my own ranking of keywords in SERP.
1. Before doing off-page or on-page, you need to know what your competitors are doing and how they are doing.
2. Place that difficult keyword in search engine bar and check who is ranking, and collect those websites ranking on top 5.
3. Track their backlinks and analyze what they are doing.
4. Guest blogging is my favorite which helps to drive traffic from various platforms.
5. Article submission is another activity that helps to get strong backlinks.
-First of all, analyze your competitors and check what they do to rank their keywords.
-Update unique and quality content and share that content on social networking sites.
-Make quality backlinks from high authority sites.
-Do guest posting.

It depends. If you build a NICHE SITE. you can rank easily. STEPS:
Sayou you want to rank for 10 KW's.
1) make a list of those KW's
2) Make a Page that offers unique content with STATS And data that you competitor do not have. Use 2 main keywords and lot of long tail semantic words here in Title and page content with 2 % density max. The page needs to be 2500 words.
3) Now do the same for other pages and interlink those pages.
4) Blog and link to these pages
5) Share these blogs via social
6) Write a Press Release and link to these pages with brand + long tail and some with native URL
7) Outreach and ask people to link to you as if you write a page that has unique data they will.
Don't do any black hat or grey hat. Go organic and stop chasing Google.
ON-SITE SEO is something you can play around with in the beginning of your site launch. This is the content creation, formatting and site structure aspects of your site. OFF-SITE SEO is all about the promotion of your content, such as social media, link building and guest blogging on other sites.
SEO and organic rankings in Google are still one of the best ways to increase traffic and market your site or business online.
SEO is all about the content you create and how you promote it.
No matter what niche market you are in, it’s extremely important to know your audience and what type of content they want. This will help with SEO and ranking for long tail keywords that your audience is likely typing into Google.
Also make sure you niche down as much as possible, as this is where you are going to find opportunity and be able to potentially establish your site as an authority and trusted resource for information.
If you want to improve your site’s SEO and make your content better than what’s currently out there, it’s all about the content creation and content promotion plans you have for your site. These are the two most important things to remember.
CONTENT CREATION - Only create great content that provides real value and is better than what’s currently already out there. Google your competition, see what type of content they have, then create something better and be sure to include stats and visuals when possible.
CONTENT PROMOTION - With over a billion active websites and blogs online, there is already way too much content out there. Without the necessary content promotion, your site is just going to get lost in the mix. You need to continually promote your content to new audiences.
To better explain all of the above and how you can use such methods to increase traffic on your own site let’s cover the many components that go into a great marketing and branding plan to grow a website or blog. Not only will content creation come into play, it’s also how much effort you put into your content promotion as well.
In the world of blogging, this can be done in a number of ways.
We are currently using the following methods to increase traffic, backlinks and exposure to our sites:
- High quality blog content, case studies and tutorials
- Social media to connect with new audiences and share blog content
- The creation of shareable content like infographics
- Guest blogging and article contributions on other sites
- Creating expert round ups of other top bloggers and industry influencers
- Getting interviewed on other podcasts and running a podcast of our own
If you implement these tips into your own marketing and content creation efforts you should see continued success.
The way SEO tools mark keywords as “Difficult” differs from one tool to another. Some purely look at the number of sites competing, some look at the number of average enquiry per month vs the number of sites, and some examine how well optimised the competitors are. So you need to first understand the algorithm of your SEO tool before you can assess their advice.
You can only rank if your content is relevant to a search term. Next is the depth and breadth of your content on a given subject, which ultimately feeds and contributes to your Authority on the subject. It is a numbers game. If you want to be an authority on New York, you better have plenty of pages on everything to do with New York. Once you are an authority for NY, then you can rank for any subject you want on NY from “Where to eat” or “Where to play ping-pong!” in New York, but you only get there by having depth and breadth of subjects in NY. You have to achieve credibility on the subject first, so the narrower your subject the easier it is to achieve Authority. So you need to focus on specific subject or subjects, then create breadth and depth, afterwhich you can spread your wings.
This, of course, is a lot of work, and the more popular the keyword you are chasing, the more quality content you have to generate. Quality content delivers links, and links give you Ranking Juice, and Ranking Juice plus Relevance give you page placement. Guest writers will help you generate more content but you still need to check how relevant their chosen subject is before you load their contributions to your website. We do not use Guest Bloggers but that is due to marketing policy decision rather than SEO decision.
SEO requires patience, investment (time, money or both), and above all a clear and concise strategy. Scattergun approach will not get you there.

Make key words 2nd.. Concentrate on "Original Content". Articles you write should be exciting, Gossip, contraversial,.. Don't be boring.
*If you want your "Difficult Key Word" to stand out use the word in your article.
***IF you can write an article that includes well known people or Corporations and the story starts to get legs.. Pay a few hundred dollars to release it on PR Newswire.. It'll hit all major networks on the net.. *IF its a great article.. or interview with a well known famous person.
** IMPORTANT.. Your article DOESN"T have to be about anything you do directly.. Your goal is to grab their attention in the first 1-2 sentences, and have "roll-overs" directing them to your site.. MAKE SURE you have a call to action on every page. People read left to right.. Your "Call to Action" should be on the right side of each page.. Keep that simple,,Name email, phone#..
Best of Luck, Paul Greco Luxlend
If you have targeted and select the difficult keyword to rank for the particular landing page of your site then optimize your targeted keyword on your landing page.
Select long tail keyword which includes your target keyword.
Create quality and information content for your visitor to get some information for their query.
Work on relevant link building with your keyword.
Don't put much keywords on your page.
Hope this will help you to target your keyword.
Best thing is to look for variations, you will have a better chance of getting listed or your website showing up for these keys words
In the words of Rand Fishkin (founder of Moz), "Find the best piece of content on that subject, and create content that's 10x better."
Link building is definitely important and effective, and guest blogging can be a helpful piece to building backlinks. But you'll find the best results (over time) come from creating incredibly helpful and valuable content for your own site.
What are people in your industry searching for? How can you add value to them?
Most people don't have the resources to churn out awesome content every day, or even every week, so it's a bit of a long-term plan, but it's very effective.
First of all not all the keywords reported 'Difficult' by tools are actually that difficult to rank in reality. All you need to consider is the quality of content; it should be well researched and covers all the aspects that interests your audience, then comes the SEO optimization for that keyword that includes: LSI keywords, Meta Data, Rich Data (if applicable). The third important factor is connecting and gaining the attention of influencers in your niche so that your content gets viral and attract links.
Some great advice that was given to me was to look for long tail search terms relating to your sector, rather than just focusing on highly popular, competitive terms. It may be difficult to rank for "printer cartridges" but "black ink printer cartridges cambridge" is likely to be much less competitive and hence a lot easier to work your way up the search engines.
