Learn how to rank your articles on Google even if you have low domain authority and very few backlinks!
I started blogging in mid-2017.
My first year was very confusing. There were so many different experts, each with their own formula for building traffic.
I tried a whole list of different traffic building techniques in that first year: guest blogging, influencer outreach, blog commenting, Pinterest, Twitter.
With guest blogging, I had some early successes. I got my articles published on some major blogs within my niche. I was pumped!
So I put all my time and effort into writing guest posts and pitching them to sites in my niche.
But after a while I began to notice something: when a guest post was published, my traffic would spike for a few days and then it would fall back to where it was before.
This wasn’t the kind of traffic I was looking for.
So then I tried Influencer Outreach. I started writing expert roundups and top list posts. Again, I had some quick successes. I was getting on the radar of the key players in my niche and I was getting more social media shares than I’d ever hoped for.
But the excitement wore off. And I began to notice the same pattern I’d seen with guest posting: my traffic would spike and then it would fall back to where it had been before.
I’ve always been someone who wants to understand how things work. I like to go beneath the surface and analyze root causes.
In everything I was reading there seemed to be two main principles that drive traffic on the Internet:
The idea behind Principle #1 was this: in any niche there are a limited number of websites that have all the traffic. To succeed, you need to somehow tap into the traffic of those websites.
The idea behind Principle #2 was that to succeed in any niche you need the help of the key influencers in that niche. They are the gate-keepers. It’s they who decide who will succeed in that niche.
About a year after I began blogging, I reluctantly started doing keyword research.
I know – it sounds bad. But it’s the truth: in my first year of blogging, I did no keyword research whatsoever. If it interested me, I wrote about it. If it was a popular topic on social media, I wrote about it.
The idea that you should never write an article that you can’t rank on Page #1 of Google was a new concept for me. It meant a whole new approach to writing content.
So I started learning about long tail keywords. I began writing articles around keywords with low monthly search volume and low competition.
And for the first time in my blogging career, I began to see a steady climb in my traffic. It wasn't a spike. It was a slow but steady rise. And that's what I wanted.
Now that I’d found something that worked, I wanted to get better at it.
So I started looking at the results on Page #1 of Google for any given keyword.
And I began to realize something: Google was telling me exactly how to rank on Page #1 for that search term.
Yes, that’s right!
In effect, Google was saying: "This is the type of content you need to write to get on Page #1 for this search term".
And that was the turning point.
I began to analyze the top 5 ranking articles for any given keyword. I dissected them, I pulled them apart and broke them down. I discovered what it was that was making them rank on Google. And I made sure my articles had those same elements. But in a larger dose.
Within weeks my articles were ranking on Page #1 of Google for my chosen keywords. My traffic took off:
I realize now, looking back on it, that some of the advice I came across in my first year of blogging was simply wrong.
For example, the website that controls the traffic in my niche (and in yours) is not some key influencer or ‘guru’.
And as for endorsement, there’s nothing on the Internet that will build your reputation faster than ranking in the #1 position on Google for your chosen keyword.
I was stunned when my blog posts started appearing on Page #1 of the search results.
Because I was outranking Internet gurus with way higher domain authority than me.
For example, for the keyword 'high authority backlinks' I outranked internet marketing Guru, Neil Patel. At that time I had a DA of 25 and he had a domain Authority (DA) of 73:
For the keyword 'tips for first year bloggers', I got a Featured Snippet (the best position you can get on Page #1 of Google) and again, I outranked marketing guru Neil Patel:
And for the keyword 'what are lsi keywords' I outranked SEO whizz Brian Dean:
Here's another example.
For the keyword 'lead capture tools' I got Position #1 on Google.
I outranked OptinMonster, a website that not only has higher domain authority than me but also has massive topical authority for this keyword:
For the keyword 'choosing a domain name for SEO' I got Position #1 and again I got a Featured Snippet:
There are many more examples I could give you, but I think you get the idea:
I know how to do this and I can show you how to do it.
Posting content to social media is like throwing a pebble onto quicksand: it stays there for a few minutes, maybe even a few hours, and then it sinks down, never to be seen again.
Here is the lifespan of a social media post:
Page #1 blog posts deliver passive, residual traffic for months (I have articles on Page #1 of Google that have been sending me traffic for over a year)
Search engine traffic converts very well.
Because when people find your page in the search results, it means they’re looking for exactly what you’re offering (otherwise, they wouldn't have found you).
That’s very different to social media traffic.
People generally go onto social media to catch up with friends and colleagues – not to solve a specific problem.
Imagine if your email list started growing exponentially - would that improve your business?
That's one of the benefits of getting your blog posts on Page #1 of Google. The people who find your articles are already pre-qualified as highly interested in what you're offering.

70% through the course and it has been great!
"I am 70% through the course and it has been great!
I am building a new website at the moment. So I am working through it as I figure out WordPress for the first time. I haven’t made my site live yet, but it has been really helpful as I work through the process of setting it up and finding topics for my blog to concentrate on. So far everything has been really clear".
Well taught and well supported
I really like the course very much. I did a quick onceover of it and then started the detailed note-taking with every module, and trying out the advice.
I can feel the big difference it’s making, not just to my blogging approach and attitude, but also to my blogging rigor and discipline.
The course is making me do a lot of things I never did before, and also to do better what I was already doing.
Most of all, it is so well-taught and well-supported, that I feel very motivated to try all the techniques, without missing out a single one.
Lots of similar courses may exist. But Rob Powell is easily one of the best people to learn from on this topic

Hi, my name is Rob Powell. I started writing for the Internet back in 1998 (when Google was still in its infancy). I have a Master's degree in social sciences and I use the research techniques I learned in my profession to write articles with very high topical authority. My blog posts regularly appear in the Number #1 position on Google.
I'd like to teach you the techniques I use, so that you too can build high converting traffic to your website.
What would it be be worth to you and your business to find a technique that generates an endless stream of paying customers? It might be worth $5000. In fact, it could be worth much more.
But don't get alarmed - Page #1 Traffic Surge is no where near that much. I just wanted to put it in perspective. This is an approach to content creation that will generate traffic to your business for years to come. It will give you and your business a huge advantage over your competitors.
I charge $300 for a 2,500 word article. So if you were to hire me to write an article using the techniques I describe in the course, it would cost you much more than the course. And that would be just one article. But armed with the information in this course, you'll be able to write any number of top-ranking articles.

Page #1 Traffic Surge focuses on creating a type of content that ranks very well on Google. Other SEO courses tend to just teach general SEO principles, such as 'On Page' and 'Off Page' SEO, link building, etc. In a nutshell: my course is different because it teaches a method for researching and writing articles that (a) rank on Page #1 of Google and (b) out-rank content with much higher Domain Authority.
Not at all - I’ve designed this course so that it can be understood and implemented by someone who is a complete beginner to SEO.
Page # 1 Traffic Surge teaches the techniques I used (and still use) to get my blog posts ranked in the top 3 positions on Google and to outrank web pages that have far higher domain authority than mine. If you would like to learn how to do that, then this course is for you!
That depends. Page #1 Traffic Surge is aimed at building content that ranks well in Google. So, you would need to have a blog attached to your eCommerce website and you would need to be actively promoting your eCommerce website through your articles and blog posts. If that is the case, then yes: this course will work for you.
Forever - no time limit.
You could piece together some of it by Googling the general topic. But it would take you hours and hours just to put it all together. And in the end, you'd never know if you had all the information you needed to get on Page #1. Also, there are techniques in my course that I haven't published in any of my articles (and I never will).
