I am sitting here trying to decide how I’m going to start this post about blog posting. There have been so many changes in the way people write them when they are trying to earn a little scratch from Affiliate programs. In the beginning people had it easier. They could just pick the niche and describe and rate a product. The bad thing is that we are running out of niches and there is way too much redundancy on the web today. You have people plagiarizing other peoples work and even if they have original content the topic has been reproduced too many times already. This leads to way too much competition. You might get lucky and find something that hasn’t been covered yet, but 9 months later there’s a hundred websites competing for the first page of serps on the same topic. If you don’t have the social following or sources for backlinks then you fall in the ranks, and guess what. There goes your sales.
So what do you do?
I have struggled with this for a while now, and the other day I stumbled upon a way to regain control that is recommended by a highly respected blogger, Steven W. Luke. I’m going to share a new method of writing that will put you back on top.
First thing you do is find out what problems people have such as headaches. Many people suffer from headaches, and you would be amazed how many different kinds of headaches. For this example I will pick a specific type of headache like one that causes neck pain, dizziness, and blurred vision. This is what you consider a long tail keywords. So the first step is to pick a problem, and turn a specific version of this problem into a long tail keyword.
Next you find a product that solves this problem. It helps to have personal experiences with it so that you can easily write a lot on the topic, and make it seem honest. People can see right through it if you don’t sound like you know what your talking about. So the second step is to find a product to recommend, and write your own personal experiences about how it helped you.
The third step that is the key to my theory which will help you rise above the competition. The topic that I picked has been used many times already. There is a lot of competition for these keywords. Write your personal experience down, and write about 800 words. I put on my S530 Bluetooth headphones and go to writing. Then research the competitions articles and show deep facts on the topic to back up why you chose this method to stop your headaches. This product works because webmd said this about it. Reword what they said about it and then place a quote directly from the article. It is important that you give them credit by linking back to the webmd article. Don’t plagiarize them, but give them a backlink. They will see this. They check their incoming links, and they know. If you are lucky you will get a link back, or possibly and guest post.
What does this do for you?
Your article gets some great content that is thorough, and backed up by authorities on the topic. It gets support from those authorities and is seen as a nice gesture that can get you possible support back. Your article will be filled with relevant keywords that you know people search for in google because others have already proved it.
Search your main keyword in google. Scroll to the bottom of the page and record those search suggestions. Write something on each of those suggestions using the method I spoke of two paragraphs above. Use the research others have done, and reference back to their research.
By doing this you combine all of the research into one post, and this makes you the authority. Your page would break down like this.
Do you have a headache that causes neck pain, dizziness, and blurred vision?
What would cause this type of pain
What nerves are involved
What muscles are involved
Why does this make you dizzy
Why is your vision burry
How does this product help fix that problem
assume the points below the main topic are googles search suggestions, or related topics. Break each one down, and explain the theory of how it works backing it up with what other authorities say. Why they believe this causes the problem, and why they think that product will fix it. Your competition may only cover one of tgose bullet points, but you have combined all of the info into one location saving the reader from hours of research and digging. It also giveswhat you say strength, and will convince your readers that what you say is the truth. When your post is that thorough, and strong your readers will be so happy they will share it with others.
