11382.6% Increase in Organic Clicks without creating Backlinks

I took a website from 300 monthly clicks to 36K+ monthly clicks in less than 12 months without spending a penny on backlinks.

Hereโ€™s how I did this in only 4 steps ๐Ÿ‘‡

1๏ธโƒฃ I spent at least 100 hours finding rankable keywords:

โœ”๏ธ Competitor Research using Ahrefs:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Compiled a relevant comprehensive list of 100+ relevant keywords that competitors are ranking for.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Shortlisted keywords based on relevance, competition, and search volume

โœ”๏ธ SERP Analysis:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Eliminated keywords with high competition (DR 30+ websites in SERP).

๐Ÿ‘‰ Assessed search intent and traffic potential for shortlisted keywords and eliminated keywords not fitting the criteria

โœ”๏ธ Second Round of Keyword Research: 

๐Ÿ‘‰ Initiated fresh keyword research for shortlisted keywords using Ahrefs.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Identified related keywords essential for creating comprehensive content.

โœ”๏ธCluster Formation:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Established keyword clusters using related keywords found in the last step.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Finalized keywords for both pillar pages and associated cluster pages.

2๏ธโƒฃ Created a Winning Blog Strategy:

I created a comprehensive blog strategy for writers that included:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Minimum Word count (I never give a maximum word count)
๐Ÿ‘‰Number of images
๐Ÿ‘‰Internal and external linking opportunities
๐Ÿ‘‰List of subheadings
๐Ÿ‘‰Crucial statistics (To attract backlinks)
๐Ÿ‘‰NLP usage
๐Ÿ‘‰References to understand the search intent

3๏ธโƒฃ Published blogs while following the SEO basics: 

๐Ÿ‘‰ I implemented how-to and FAQ schema wherever possible to target the featured snippets.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Used a logical structure of H1 to H4 headings, used descriptive alt text for images, and added at least 5 original images per 1000-word blog.

โœ”๏ธPublished around 15 blogs per month. With 3 pillar pages and 5 blogs as child pages for each pillar page.

4๏ธโƒฃ Worked on the data:

As blogs started ranking, new data started coming in. 

๐Ÿ‘‰ A month after publication, I analyzed the pages with keywords ranked in the 4th to 15th position.

๐Ÿ‘‰ I added new informative content to these pages by looking at the data and current SERP.

This was a continuous process that got me these results. 

Consistency and data-driven approach matters if you want to see exponential growth!
