Have you already felt the frustration of not seeing any of your blog posts appear on Page One of Google? They told you, that the best way to start your internet business is to start a blog, didn’t they?
So you are writing away, article after article. I’m sure it’s probably fantastic stuff.
I had one person who somehow found my blog say, “You post very interesting posts here. Your website deserves a much bigger audience. (Don’t I agree?) It can go viral if you give it an initial boost.”
But when you are competing for a spot Google Page One against 460,000,000 others, the odds are somewhat against you, aren’t they?
Want to know how I got 12 of my articles on First page of Google?
Would you like to know how I got 12 of my articles on first page of Google? Please don’t tell this one to too many people because there are only 10 spots available. Did you know that 50% of the clicks on a given keyword go to the first one listed and I think its 90% to the first 5 or 6.
You have 1000 times less chances to get your article on Page One then if you transform it into a video!
Here is the Secret!!
Turn your Blog Post into a Power Point. And turn your Power Point into a video and post it on your You Tube channel. Carefully choose your Title, write a powerful description and choose the key words that you want to rank on.
Now why would Google favor a video over a blog post? Well You Tube belongs to Google and they promote a video over an article because they know that more than 50% of the visitors rather consume new information through a video format. Apparently it will be 90% in a couple of years’ time.
If you go and look at the keyword ‘Franchise for an online business’ you will see the link to my video clearly. In this case I’m number seven and you see my photo. If you have a g-mail account and Google + account too, people will either see your photo or the thumbnail of your video. So that means you need to personalize each so they stand out and catches the eye of the visitor.
Google and You Tube want their visitors to have a unique experience so they come back for more. So if you give it to the viewers, they will favor you.
In the case of this keyword there is no color on the whole page. My photo is the only one smiling at them… ha ha.
How to maintain your spot on Page One for the long-term?
Of course, it is also a matter of maintaining your spot long-term.
That is done by doing an article and its equivalent Power Point video on each suggested variant that Google gives on that keyword. That way you ‘nail in’ your spot with that keyword. Just type in the long tailed keyword (a phrase) and take off the last 3-4 letters and you will get Google’s suggested variants. You might want to do this research also with You Tube which is the second biggest search engine in the world. Find out what are the videos on that subject. Look at the title and also the description and you should be able to note the different key words used. The best thing is to do a research with Google key word planner but that is the subject of the next article.
This is what I get on Google Search for “Franchise for an online business”:
-Franchise for online business
-Franchise for online business in India,
-Franchise online business opportunities
-Franchise agreement for online business
You may rank for one key word and not for the others
Of course you can have several keywords for the same video. You may rank for one and not for others. In the case of my video, I’m also ranked on Page one for the keyword “Home based opportunities”.
If you do this right, those who are looking for you will see you on every side!
My blog article “Ultimate Online Profit Model eBook Review” is third down on Google Page One for that key word but my video based on the blog article is number one! It is actually higher than John Chow’s own article (he is the author) who is in the number four slot.
So there you have the illustration of one of the best kept secrets on Internet! Yes, you are right; I’m going to have to do a video on this.
In the next posts, I’ll walk you through a keyword research; show you how to make a video of a power point presentation; and how to use the free real estate that is under your video to get leads or even sales.
