Attract more blog readers
Whether you're blogging to make money, attract clients and customers, or just to share your thoughts on a certain topic, the key to achieving your goal is to attract more blog readers.
One of the biggest keys to doing that is to raise your rank within Google's search results.
Yep, when it comes to search, Google is still king. So, how do you get listed higher on Google's search results?
The answer is to use "juicy" keyword phrases to create great blog ideas, those high in demand and low in supply/competition, which serve as inspiration for months of blog topics for you to write about (click here to learn the secret to great blog topics).

How to raise your rank within Google's search results
The reason "juicy" keyword phrases can help get you listed higher in Google's search results is:
Some website pages are harder to get ranked higher than others.
That's right - not all site pages are created equal. It's nearly impossible to raise the search rank of some pages while for others, it's easy.
What's the difference? The blog post idea that inspires each blog post topic.
You see, topics based on great blog post ideas that are, in turn, based on "juicy" keyword phrases, are the least competitive so it's easier to increase their rank.
Does it Work?
How do I know that my approach, using "juicy" keywords, works? As they say, "the proof is in the pudding". Back when I was blogging regularly on my Matt About Business blog, this approach kept my blog posts on the front page of google search results, many for years!
In fact, many of my blog posts are still on the front page of Google YEARS after I wrote them.
