How to Optimize Content for SEO and Dominate Your Competitors

Mar 14, 2024

These online stores are making millions of dollars from SEO, and I’m going to show you how you can steal that traffic in just three simple tweaks. No ads, no agencies—simpler than you ever thought. Let’s go!

Step 1: Spy on Your Competitors

First things first, if you want to steal traffic, you need to do a little bit of spying. Understand what traffic your competitors are getting. Here’s what to look for:

– Keywords: What keywords are they ranking for?

– Pages: Which pages are driving their traffic?

– Opportunities: Identify easy steals where you can grab that sweet traffic.

Tools like Semrush are invaluable for this kind of research. You can see which keywords are up for grabs, what pages are performing well, and how you can tap into that traffic. Grab your extended 14-day trial with the link below.

Step 2: Analyze Their Content

Next, head to your competitor’s website and observe the pages that are ripe for the picking. Look at:

Headings: What headlines are they using?

Keywords: Which words are they emphasizing?

Content Length: How long are their product titles and descriptions?

Search Results: What appears in Google when you search these terms?

For example, if they have a blog post on “how to clean after a puppy,” write your own post on the same topic. If they have a collection of organic cotton products, create your own organic cotton collection. The goal is to model their success without copying it.

Step 3: Model and Optimize

Now it’s time to get to work. You’re going to model, not copy, your competitor’s content. Here’s how to do it:

Prioritize: Focus on the easiest tasks with the biggest impact. We call this the domino effect—knock down the small domino, and it knocks down everything else.

Use Tools: Tools like Semrush can help prioritize keywords. Use our NinjaBuddy, based on ChatGPT, to come up with different descriptions and titles. And don’t forget our Perfect Product Page Formula to structure your new product pages or collections.

Important: Don’t copy and paste content. Google can penalize you for this, and recovering from “Google Jail” is a long, arduous process. Instead, draw inspiration and create original content that adds value.

With these three simple SEO tweaks, you can start siphoning traffic from top online stores without the need for ads or agencies. It’s all about smart spying, detailed analysis, and strategic content creation.
