These are words that no digital marketing manager wants to hear put together; “Rapid” and “SEO traffic growth”

So we needed to flex our creative left-brain muscles to come up with a plan to attract SEO traffic.
The thoughts we had were -
We approached rapid SEO traffic growth in this Glossary program by following the strategy below.
First off, our research identified that the People Also Ask style questions based on the exact way that Google is displaying that search result snippet.
These were high search volume, low competition keyword targets to go after.
Once we had our list of People Also Ask keyword targets, we optimized the page copy and on-page elements to specifically mirror the search results.
Monkey see, monkey do!
We weren’t looking at small search volume searches. Instead, we set our sights on BIG WINS for terms that companies such as Wikipedia would rank for but that your competitors would not (e.g. Texas Instruments).
Within this program, there is no sense in ranking #1 for something with 10 searches per month. Big wins only!
