If you want to rank a website and to be in the TOP search results then you need to write your web content with the search keyword-focused and it should be unique and useful.

Google is working towards the goal of giving relevant searches based on the user intent. The user intent is decided by the words typed by the searches. The searching words google is called a keyword. Where to find which keyword needs to be stuffed in our web contents.

Keyword search

Google gives a free tool called keyword planner, you can use this keyword planner tool and find the most searched keyword for the recent 5 years of time. This will give you a good enough keyword idea to be used in the web content that you publish. This is a limited feature tool that will give less information.

If you want to use the keyword research technic properly then there are good enough paid tools in the market.

In that, I like ubersuggest and ahrefs. Both are very useful tools. Ubersuggest giving you a 7-day free trial and they charge nominal per month. You can get good enough data to decide a keyword topic to write.

Ahref is higher in cost when compared with Ubersuggest. Based on your business needs you can choose your tools to have data-driven decisions.

How to keep my top position in the SERP

Keeping yourself in the TOP SERP pages required good content to be published in a consistent manner. If you publish useful relevant content of your topic then google will always rank the website to keep you in the top SERP pages without any cost spend.

So always ensure you are publishing Good Useful Content which solves a specific problem or gives good enough solutions to the search queries.

Link building is important

Link building is one of the most important parts of google SEO. The link is defined as

  1. Internal Linking

2. External Linking

Internal Linking

Always have internal linking from your post or articles to your website content where ever readers should read the link content to get the best understanding of the problem with solutions.

Because there may be different types of solutions you can provide for one problem. So always have good enough internal linking. Ensure the links should be relevant and useful.

External linking

External linking should happen naturally by other bloggers or authors to refer your content for their audience to have better clarity about the topic.

Do not force the link building which will help only for short-term results.
