    How to do SEO for High competition keywords


    Actually, I am an SEO analyst, till now I brought low and medium competition keyword to the top page in google search. But I face difficulty in bringing the highly competitive keyword to the first page in google, even I have done quality SEO services. Can you explain me, how to do SEO for this type of keywords?

    By upping your game, everything needs to be perfect and saying thats good enough will not cut it. Increasing your efforts and exciting users about the site. Encouraging users to talk about your site off site.
    There is no trick to working with competitive niches but if it took you say 1 hour a week to rank a none competitive keyword it could take you 100 hours a week or more to make any impact.

    I just being polite in saying you need to work harder.
    There is nothing extra you can do if you already know how to rank a site except a lot more of it

    Off course We need to work hard To Beat the Competitor on competitive Keywords. Before doing Off page activity you need to check your On page optimization Have you used keywords in Title and meta description and body text content and Do not Follow keywords stuffing Explain your keywords in Natural way and write content for human not for search Engine and Updated on Social media share your content and more.

    The procedure will remain same for both low and high competitive keywords but the only thing is the time which will make the difference.

    There is two circumstances, one how much competitiveness of the targeted keywords and the 2nd one is who is getting ranked on top 10 and what have done.

    1) For example, if you want to target "Air conditioning repair las vegas" then at first you realize this is not high competitive keywords but if you review their competitors those are over the top with this or around this keyword they have done very good work including local listing and good back links from powerful resources.

    So if you want to target this kind keyword then you would need to follow some suggested steps >>

    a) You would need to follow all local listing checkpoints that include properly optimized (using proper schema and all), fixing of inconsistent data, creating new links through vertical sites.
    b) Review your competitors back links and you will find most of the good links are coming through recommendations from their own networks or other sites and they have added their links very smartly. So we would need to figure your own relevant channels from where you can generate links or you can work for them and ask your recommendations from their site with relevant content for your site in somehow.
    c) You would need to create good content for your blog/ articles that would be related our theme/services and try to establish your branding though these content but make sure you provide good insightful for our users and you should share this content as much as you can.
    d) You need to write some content about our branding actually you would need to figure your "USP (unique selling points)" and you should write the content on it and distribute it through press releases channels.

    There are much more you can figure out this through your SWOT analysis including competitor's analysis.

    2) One of another example as I worked previously one on my client site and they're main was "escorted NYC". Once I have reviewed their competitor's sites I figured out all competitors have done huge spam including keywords in the content back links and maximum links are coming through their own networks.
    And I have also noticed this method allied by not from the one site minimum sites used the same kind of pattern those are on top 10 slots and target this or similar kind of the keywords.

    But we didn't believe that we would need to do any spam technics and we worked on this by the own way and some of the steps followed by us >>

    a) We fixed all the on page errors
    b) We fixed all browser compatible issues
    c) We checked all the platform where we can open our site without any discarded including molbles, table etc. and took the required action for fixing this if we found any.
    d) We hosted in dedicated IP and with https
    e) We hired a content writer who can write the content in this niche. So first we updated our home page content and later on, he is writing the content for the on-site blog.

    6) For the links, we figured out some sites where we can publish our content and they are very less in no.

    5) Finally, I must say we focused more on on-page stuff than off-site work for this niche. And finally we got ranked on top 5 with many target keywords but It took around 6 months.

    I will suggest some of the tools that will help you for creating topics and the content around your targeted niches.

    AnswerThePublic.com: that free visual keyword research & content ideas tool
    HubSpot's Blog Topic Generator
    https://ubersuggest.io/
    Soovle - Let the web help.

    Different keywords have the different requirement for the rankings. But there is not any substitute of qualified content as per your targeted niches.

    Just to mirror the other answers, you need to continue with white hat strategies. If the keywords are very competitive it just takes time for them to rank. You could try the CanIRank tool, to identify any gaps in your SEO efforts:

    I would define it this way. Pull your competitors links and analyse them. You will have to see the links authority and contact these guys to get a link back to your site. If they are willing to do so! You will be able to rank in above them if you can get more links than they have. This will definitely surpass them in rank.
