Did you know it’s actually possible to rank for some keywords in Google with Zero backlinks? It’s true this little trick that only a few people have discovered will allow you to rank in Google with zero (or only a few) backlinks.
In Googles enormous and amazing algorithm for ranking websites there is a section that gives extra weight depending on your domain name. In the Internet marketing industry people refer to this as exact match domains. This means that if your trying to rank for the keyword ” new york gyms ” and you owned the domain newyorkgyms.com you would have a huge advantage over other sites ranking for the same term. This means you will need less backlinks than your competitors. Allowing you to spend less time building links and more time making money.
So if you’re lucky enough to have an exact match domain already or you do some research and find a good one your life will be much easier. There ave been several times I found a nice long tail keyword, check Name Cheap and surprisingly the domain was still available. Lots of time the .com and .net’s are gone but don’t be scared to scoop up the .org, when it comes to exact match domains it’s very powerful.
Now, lets say all the above .com, .net and .org are all gone…the next best thing is to hyphen the words. The less hyphens you have the more power your domain will see in Google’s rankings. Going back to our example above you could buy the domain newyork-gyms.com and still get extra credits according to Google’s algorithm.
Now, you still want to make sure the keyword you choose will make you enough money to be worth this small time and money investment. So I would only choose keywords that have at least 5,000 exact searches a month. It may take a few hours to find a little gold nugget but it’s 100% worth it for your ROI on your time and money invested.
This one of of the little SEO tricks that people use to make money online everyday. Now remember, if you use an exact match domain, you may need some backlinks and unique content to rank if there is some competition but you will definitely have a huge advantage over all other sites in the eyes of Google.
