Do you have a report where you can see your top performing keywords on a single screen?

If your answer is no, then you are missing out on many opportunities to boost your organic growth. 

  • First page keywords are the ones that enable your landing pages to appear on the first page of Google search results.
  •  In other words, if a landing page ranks within the top 10 on the SERP, the keywords on that page are considered first page keywords.

So, let's take a look at how you can get a report on these keywords!

Next strategies after detecting the first page keywords

Of course, it's not enough just to know which keywords they are. Creating new strategies that focus on boosting the performance of these words will boost your organic growth. 

Let's see what these strategies can be!

  1. On page optimization

You need to bring the landing pages with the keywords that are visible on the first page to their best versions. For example, you should make sure that page titles, headings, meta descriptions, and the main text contain keywords.

In this way, you will make sure that the keywords you detect are used in the most effective and appropriate way.

  1. Analyze competitors' relevant content

You need to analyze how your competitors produce content on the keywords you gain visibility on the first page. To do this, check how many words the top 5 ranking content has. If your content has less, then make it longer.

Use the same keywords that your competitors are using in their content, even if you haven't used them yet.

Analyze how your competitors create the pain-solution balance. Identify where they are stronger than your content. So you can analyze the factors that get them on the first page.

  1. Create a new content and optimize the existing one

Producing new content that focuses on keywords that gain visibility on the first page may be the next strategy. You can use the content consisting of these keywords in your blog posts, landing pages and product pages.

At the same time, you need to optimize your existing content. You should make sure that the keywords that enable you to be on the first page on the SERP exactly match your content. For example, if the keyword and content used are not fully linked, this may cause you to lose rankings in the long run.

  1. Make sure the user intent and your content are linked

For a landing page to be displayed on the first page by Google, users must be able to respond to their problems. If your content does not respond to users' search intent, it will not be welcomed by Google algorithms. Therefore, make sure that the landing pages with your keywords that are visible on the first page can balance the pain solution.

Why should you detect first page keywords?

To begin, ranking on the first page of Google for targeted keywords indicates organic growth. This can assist you in increasing brand awareness, consumer engagement, and conversion rates.

You may focus your efforts on optimizing your content and website for those keywords if you find the keywords that are currently ranking on the first page. This increases your chances of ranking higher and generating more traffic.

Second, finding first page keywords might help you uncover potential opportunities for content production and improvement. By discovering relevant or comparable keywords that are appearing on Google's first page, you may produce new content or enhance current content to assist in improving these keywords. This will boost your visibility and traffic.

Finally, discovering first page keywords might help you figure out the efficiency of your SEO activities. You can assess which approaches are successful and which need to be improved by analyzing the rankings of your selected keywords over time.

 This data may be employed to fine-tune your SEO strategy and content development efforts in order to better target the keywords that are most relevant to your business.

Final Thoughts

Although it may seem like a small detail, the keywords that make you visible on the first page are of great importance in your SEO growth adventure.

These keywords can form the basis of your long-term strategies. That's why you need to identify the keywords that gain a position on the first page on Google.

However, just detecting is not enough. The positions of these keywords may change over time and you should be aware of these changes immediately.

Otherwise, you may miss the opportunities I mentioned above and fall behind in the competition.
