The SEO Entrepreneur.” Today, I’m thrilled to share with you five of my favorite SEO techniques that have consistently delivered impressive results. These tactics have been adopted by WebFX and other industry heavyweights, such as Neil Patel, in addition to being the driving force behind my own success. So, let’s dive into the world of SEO wizardry!
Technique #1: The Merger Technique
I introduced the Merger Technique back in 2015, and since then, it has become a game-changer for dominating SEO competitors across diverse niches. Notably, Neil Patel and Backlinko have also embraced this technique to skyrocket their organic search traffic. So, what is the Merger Technique?
Steps for Implementation:
- Use a tool like SpamZilla for opportunity discovery.
- Set filters, focusing on relevant domains.
- Research drop domains for potential opportunities.
- Vet the domains meticulously for relevance, link profiles, anchor text quality, history, and index status.
- Once a suitable domain is found, execute the merger by getting dedicated hosting, mapping out every page with backlinks, finding relevant URLs, and redirecting on a page-by-page basis.
Remember, the Merger Technique can significantly boost your site’s authority and trust, making it easier to rank for key keywords.
Technique #2: AI for Untapped Content Opportunities
Harness the power of AI to uncover untapped SEO content opportunities. Using ChatGPT, integrate the provided code with Google Search Console to identify clustering opportunities. These are keywords ranking poorly, presenting a chance to create new, optimized content and improve overall site performance.
Technique #3: Reverse Silo Technique
The Reverse Silo Technique focuses on driving backlinks to specific content assets and then redistributing that link equity to other crucial pages on your site. By prioritizing content for link acquisition, you can elevate the authority of pages that may not naturally attract backlinks, such as category pages or product pages. This technique emphasizes building site authority one page at a time.
Technique #4: AI-Generated Linkbait
Leverage AI to create compelling linkbait. Follow these steps:
- Identify free tools or software from competitors that have attracted backlinks.
- Implement the code using the WP Coder plugin.
- Create a new page and add the code.
- Promote the linkbait to attract backlinks.
This approach allows you to create engaging content that naturally draws in valuable backlinks.
Technique #5: Fixing Keyword Cannibalization
Keyword cannibalization occurs when multiple pages target the same keyword with the same intent, causing confusion for search engines. Detect this issue by monitoring fluctuating ranking positions and ever-changing ranking URLs in the Google Search Console and HFS. To fix it, optimize one primary keyword per page and create new pages only when the intent is different.
These five techniques showcase the versatility and innovation required for successful SEO in today’s dynamic landscape. If you found these strategies valuable,
