A Simple Hack to Finding the Right Keywords to Rank #1 on Google (The Best FREE SEO Tool)


– The more traffic you
get to your website, doesn’t mean the more sales
you’re gonna generate. You’re going after the wrong keywords, the wrong traffic right now. Even if they’re in your industry and you think you’re
targeting the right ones, I bet, they’re the wrong ones. Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel. And today, I’m gonna share with
you a simple hack to finding the right keywords to rank
number one on Google for. (soft music) Before we get started, make sure you subscribe to this channel. That way when they release more tips like this, you’ll get notified. Question for you, as your traffic goes up, are you noticing that your
revenue is staying flat, or you’re not getting
any sales altogether? If you’re noticing that,
leave a comment with yes. If you’re not, leave a comment with no. The reason I say this is, I myself, went through that same issue. I got my sites up to hundreds
and thousands of visitors. My current site NeilPatel.com gets over three million visits a month. Just think about that. Three plus million visits a month. And if you’re not getting
the right kind of traffic, doesn’t matter if you take
it from three and go to six, or ten, doesn’t mean you’re
gonna get more sales. And I learned that the hard way, but eventually, I learned how to fix it. So, let’s go over the simple hack to getting you the right
keywords to rank on Google for. Step one, go to Ubersuggest. When you go to Ubersuggest, you’ll notice, that yeah, you can type in
keywords and do keyword research. But, you can also put
in a URL and get data on all the traffic that anyone
in the space is getting. What keywords your
competition is ranking for, how much cost per click are
they paying for these keywords. So, put in a competitor URL. The ones that you know are making money. If you don’t know, do
searches in your space for other competitors
and you’ll see which ones are spending money on ads
and are bigger than you, have a lot of employees,
they tend to do well. Step two, on that page
you’re gonna see an overview, a traffic overview of
your competitions traffic. How many visitors you’re
getting from that region, whether it’s United States,
or Australia, or India. And you’re gonna see their
top pages, click on top pages. Step three, under top pages,
you’re gonna see all the top performing pages that are
driving most of their traffic. Just because a page is
driving them their traffic, doesn’t mean it’s
driving them their sales. Look at all their most popular pages, and click view all, under
the estimated visits column. That’ll show you the keywords
that are driving the traffic. Look for the keywords
that are driving traffic, have a high cost per click, ideally, in the dollar plus range. So a dollar, two dollars, five, ten dollars, all great numbers. The moment they’re like, five cents, not really good keywords. But anything that’s over a dollar, has volume, is their most
popular pages, right? ‘Cause Uber suggested
sorting it by popularity. And then you wanna look at SEO difficulty. The lower the number, ideally under 50, the better off you are. This will all tell you the keywords you should be going after. The keywords that have the most traffic, that have the highest cost per click, and the least difficulty, are the ones that you can get results from the fastest, and tend to convert into paying customers. See, because if someone’s willing to spend a lot of money on a keyword
and it drives volume, you know that keyword is
driving them revenue as well. Next, what I want you to
do, is take that keyword because you’ve found
one, and Google for it. Look up all the pages
that rank in the top 10. Click on their site, look at
that content that’s ranking. Read it, understand it. Now, next step. I want you to write a
more thorough version. More detail, more thorough,
poke holes in their content, analyze it, answer
everything that they’re not. It’s not just all about length,
it’s about being thorough and so good that
everyone’s like, oh my God, this is the best thing out
there since sliced bread. They want to share it,
talk about it, link to it. That’s the type of content
you want to create. Then, last but not least,
just because you create the content, doesn’t
mean that you’re gonna get the rankings and the traffic. So, you need to follow
the steps so that way you can go in a full circle,
and you can get the rankings. Anytime you link out
to someone, hit ’em up. Ask ’em to share your content. You can be like, “Hey
John, I love your content, “so much so I linked out to your site. “You can check it out here. “If you like my content,
feel free and share it “on your favorite social network. “Cheers, Neil.” By doing that, you’re
gonna get more traction, and as you get all this traction, you will start getting better rankings. And as you get more rankings, you will start generating sales ’cause you’re getting the
right kind of traffic. And if you wanna see who
links to your competition, check out the backlinks
tool on neilpatel.com. Neilpatel.com/backlinks You can put in a competitor
URL or anyone’s URL. You can see everyone who links to them and you can hit up each of those sites and ask them to link to your article. If you follow those
tactics, you’re gonna rank for the right keywords, generate the right kind of traffic,
and generate more sales. If you need help with your

    As your traffic goes up, are you noticing that your revenue is staying flat, or you're not getting any sales altogether? If you're noticing that, leave a comment with "yes". If you're not, leave a comment with "no".

    The niche I'm going after has too many articles ranking number 1 on Google, from High domain authority General websites like Thought catalogue. But none of the websites ranking, were particularly catered to that niche.
    The keyword has fairly reasonable amount of searches. Do you think I should go for it?

  • Mrinal Jyoti Choudhury

    Hi Neil. I want to make a succesful blog. But I am not able to find my niche yet. I want to make a educational type blog but not a product review type blog. For example I want a topic like digital marketing. I am confused which field of digital marketing to choose for blogging. Can I blog about Marketing automation? The qustion is should I make money with this niche? Please suggest one. Thanks 😊

  • Jason AK Mitchell

    This was great Neil…kinda feel like this cements the answer you gave me on the other video.

    I would love to hear your take on what to do if you’re a entertainer, singer, musician. I’m working with a few ppl in the film/tv, fashion, and music world and I’m trying to see how to apply this to what your saying.

    So any ideas for an up and coming triple threat (singing, dancing, and acting)?

  • TVM Enterprises

    Neil divulges more quality content for free that others try to sell you on to get their ranking 'secrets' that they likely steal from Neil anyways. Right on Neil, thanks for being genuine. You rock!

  • Rafi Uddin

    Awesome tool. But are you going to make this tool paid? If you do so than I don’t want to make habit of using it.

    Another thing, Bangladesh is not in the country list.

  • Chuck Cobb

    Neil, Im writing blog post of 2,000 words on the most popular topics in my industry. Just started in February and have 50 post focusing on creating better content than my competitors. Im thinking about going until 100 blog post and start working on my membership course after. Do you think that's a good strategy?

  • Dr. Sebi Inspired - Mucusless Diet Center

    yeah but Ubbersuggest only gives me like 5 keywords and wants me to download but the download is not readable. I have posted this many times before. I wrote to the contact page and no one answered. I love you Neil but hate the new Ubbersuggests.

  • Club ASD

    Hey Neil, thanks for the greatest free tool-Ubersuggest. People love it, and so do I. For your concern, my Region "Bangladesh" is not in there. It's a small country besides India. And a big amount of your followers are from here. So if you consider adding this country that will be beneficial for us. Thanks.

  • vinod pandey

    If you want to get buyer traffic, you need to target buyer keywords. Sound simple but most of people overlook this. You can also check out keywords from some of your competitors who is doing really well and get some ideas. I've talked about this on my Youtube channel so you can check it out but anyway, hope this helped! 🙂

  • James Scott

    So the higher the cost-per-click keywords are, the more ultra focused user intent keywords they are. They bring you the traffic that counts. The traffic that will convert beautifully. 🙂 thanks Neil 👍

  • David Montero

    As I use Ubersuggest to check my site with a subdomain, it displays old information from at least december 2018 from my old site instead of the new site we´ve done. It is like is not analysing the current site, is checking some cached content of my old site? How this is possible?

  • Brennen Mayes

    Neil, I’m new to the digital marketing scene and I want to help local businesses with getting more sales through online channels. My question is which are the best channels for me to learn so I can quickly begin offering digital marketing to them that will help them see real results?

  • Tutoriais_Photoshop

    Oi Neil, parabéns pelo vídeo. Já uso o Ubbersuggest há bastante tempo, adoro essa ferramenta. Tenho um site no Brasil que é a primeira referência no Google quando se busca por 'Tutoriais de Photoshop' em português. Porém atualmente vejo que antes da primeira referência orgânica para sites o Google tem exibido os resultados para vídeos do YouTube, como concorrer com este tipo de resultado?

  • priya singh

    Hey sir, One of my blog post is at 30th position for a keyword and i have written more and far better than others? Why?

    Is it because of backlinks, because i have not created any!

  • Robin Ooi

    Well said Neil, ranking on 1st page of Google isn't the be all end all but sadly most people get it wrong. Going for the top search volume keyword doesn't necessarily mean you're going to get more sales, in fact, it might do the opposite!

  • Gringo Taxis

    How far behind realir2is your Ubersuggest page? While my page is not at the 10-20K per month it gets around 4000 hits a month and I just started it. No experience in SEO and I still rank in the top 20 for my brand.

    I punched in my info on your sight which tells me I get 0 visits haha 4000 is a lomg ways from zero, so again how far behind is Ubersuggest?

  • كيدز تون TV

    I just have one question

    Create animated content on YouTube and make a lot of effort in its production

    I want to know how to get views from the suggested videos?

  • Shibam Kar

    I have a coupon website and there's a page about keyword "Amazon Coupons". Should I keep the permalink – 'amazon' only as it is short? or 'amazon-coupons' and make the link a bit long?

  • Mohammad Ahmad Faruqi

    Hey Neil nice video but I have been using your ubersuggest tool and the keyword difficulty scores I have been getting are way to low as compared to other keyword difficulty revealers like kwfinder and keyword revealer . com
    I just wanna ask that are the kw difficulties computed by your tool are credible or not. Thanks

    Hi, Neil! What if my competition is ranking on a particular product say rugby balls. There's not much content on the first pge results on Google – it was more so eCommerce sites. I'm unsure how to proceed in creating content for it.

    Hi Neil!
    Loved this and love your NPAccel program I’m in!
    I struggle with finding out who my competitors are since I have a lifestyle blog. (Recipes, home organization, fashion, blogging how-to).
    I can pick a competitor for each topic I suppose but I’m not sure if that’s the right thing to do! Any advice on how to find my competitors as a site overall or should I niche down for topics? Thank you!
