Rank Number One In Google
In this article, I'm gonna tell you, "How to rank number one in Google step by step?" In fact, you'll see the exact process that I used to rank in the top three for the keyword list building. Today I'm gonna tell you, "How to use strategies like the content roadshow?" and the OBP formula to get higher rankings in Google. Stay tuned. We've got a lot to cover in today's article, So let's get started.

I recently published a post to my blog called 17 Insanely Actionable List Building Strategies, and my target keyword for that page was list building. Now, the keyword list building is insanely competitive.
Think about it, every email marketing company in the world wants to rank for this keyword, and I'm a one-man show going head-to-head against giant companies like MailChimp, AWeber, and Infusionsoft.

Bring it on, bring it on. At first, I wasn't sure that I'd be able to outrank these big brands for such a competitive keyword, but thanks to the process I'm about to share with you, by post quickly hit Google's first page for my target keyword.

Today, I rank in the top three for list building. My post also ranks number one in Google for dozens of related keywords like list building tips, list building strategies, and more. Thanks to all these first-page rankings, that single piece of content has brought in 79,807 visits since I first published it. Okay, enough bragging.

It's time for me to tell you, How I did i? Specifically, I'm gonna tell you, "How to rank in Google for competitive keywords?" Without further ado, let's kick things off with step number one, make your content insanely actionable.

Google recently rolled out a major update to their algorithm called RankBrain. RankBrain measures how Google searchers interact with your site in the search results. If people like your result, Google gives you a rankings boost. If not, they'll drop your rankings like a stone. From my own SEO experiments, I found that all Google searchers want the same thing, actionable content. Think about it.

When someone searches for something in Google, they don't want to read some random person's opinion. Instead, they want tactics that they can use to solve their problem right away. If you can give that to them, Google will notice and bump you up a few spots. For example, when you search for the keyword list building, you don't want to hear why building your email list is important.

You don't want my take on the future of list building. You want simple strategies that you can use right away. That's why my post has zero fluff and zero filler. It's literally a short intro and 17 bite-sized tips that you can implement within a few minutes. Because Google searchers love my result, I rank above sites like HubSpot and Forbes even though they have way more backlinks than I do.

Next up, it's time for step number two, use the OBP formula. I recently conducted the biggest search engine ranking factor study ever, and one of our most interesting findings was that sites with a low bounce rate tend to rank above sites with a high bounce rate. As you might already know, a bounce is when someone visits your site, and then quickly jumps back to the search results.

Obviously, if lots of people bounce from your site, it sends a strong message to Google that people don't like your content. Like I just mentioned, if people aren't liking your content, Google will notice, and drop your rankings. Fortunately, there's a simple way to improve your bounce rate, the OBP formula.
