How I Ranked Google Top 10 for the Term Free Leads

This post will outline my plan and journey to achieving a top-ten ranking for the term ‘free leads’ which can be found below:

Disclaimer: I don’t know if any actions I outline and implement here will work. I guess time will tell.


I recently stumbled across this blog post by Backlinko outlining how to rank higher on Google so I gathered implementing the tactics outlined here would be a good place to start.

I will also be pushing backlinks to my post through my guest blogging efforts. According to ahrefs I need to get 30 backlinks to rank on page one, so I better get moving.

I will use Surfer SEO to audit my page, make the required content improvement changes, and use their content planner to write supporting content to gain topical authority.

For this goal I looking to make changes incrementally and track the improvements (or lack thereof) over time.
