5 EXCELLENT WEBSITES FOR CHECKING GOOGLE KEYWORD RANKINGS


Keyword rank checker
One of the essential elements of SEO is picking the right keyword, making them rank & track the keyword position in search.
It is absolutely necessary for a blogger or SEO professional to check their Google keyword ranking for target keywords. One of the most common mistakes bloggers and website administrators make is that they write and publish articles without targeting any keywords at all.
It takes only 10-15 minutes to use keyword research tools like SEMRUSH or the KWfinder to find which keywords to use. Make sure you take advantage of these tools in order to accomplish this very important step!
Once you are finished writing an SEO-optimized post using your target keywords, your next task is to keep track of its search engine rankings and to continue building backlinks with the proper anchor text.
**Again, proper keyword selection is one of the main factors involved in achieving a better ranking in Google’s search engine.**
Every blogger must aim to use the keywords which users search the most, especially those keywords which will help your website show up on one of the first few pages of search results.
If you accomplish proper on-page SEO, chances are good that you will appear in the first 50 search results.
To improve your SEO, you must manage keywords properly so that you can find out which keywords are strong for your particular domain and which are not. This information allows you to work on using the strongest keywords, thus increasing your likelihood of getting a better ranking in Google and other search engines.
In order to accomplish this goal, you need a tool which can tell you where a specific keyword ranks in Google’s search results without manually going through 100’s of search results and pages.
To help you to do this, we have compiled a list of some excellent free online tools to use to check your target keyword position in Google.

Warren Buffett: “Really Successful People Say No To Almost Everything”

When I tell people that Warren Buffett follows the 5-Hour Rule and spends 80% of his time reading and thinking, they have an immediate and predictable reaction: “Well, he can do that because he’s Warren Buffett, one of the richest people in the world. I could never do that.” While this response may help people feel better about themselves, it certainly won’t make them smarter. Because the reality is: Buffett has spent most of his time reading and thinking since he was in grade school. Having more money or managing a large company doesn’t magically give you free time. Having free time is never the default. People don’t just fall into huge blocks of free time unless they retire. Rather, free time is the result of strategy. It’s the result of looking at time differently. Curious about Buffett’s unique strategies, I’ve read several books about him, read most of his annual letters to stockholders, and watched nearly all of his interviews. And make no mistake about it… behind Buffett’s jovia…

This Is Exactly How You Should Train Yourself To Be Smarter [Infographic]

Design inspired by the Cognitive Bias Codex
View the high resolution version of the infographic by clicking here. Out of all the interventions we can do to make smarter decisions in our life and career, mastering the most useful and universal mental models is arguably the most important. Over the last few months, I’ve written about how many of the most successful self-made billionaire entrepreneurs like Ray Dalio, Elon Musk, and Charlie Munger swear by mental models… “Developing the habit of mastering the multiple models which underlie reality is the best thing you can do. “ — Charlie Munger “Those who understand more of them and understand them well [principles / mental models] know how to interact with the world more effectively than those who know fewer of them or know them less well. “ — Ray Dalio “It is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree — make sure you understand the fundamental principles, i.e. the trunk and big branches, before you get into the leav…

If you want to be massively successful, do NOT set ambitious goals, according to studies

The conventional model to having great success in your career is setting and ardently pursuing big, hairy, audacious goals (BHAGs), even if you have no idea how you’re going to achieve them when you start. Want to build a billion dollar company? Set the goal and work backward from long-term goals to medium-term goals to short-term goals to today’s to-do list. Then take action, measure your progress along the way, and constantly course correct so you’re always on the most direct path (that you’re aware of) toward your ultimate goal. Want to cure cancer? Set the goal and work backward. Measure your progress. Want to find the love of your life or be happy? Set the goal. Rinse and repeat. This goals model is so obvious in our culture, it goes without saying. It’s central to our collective success recipe. Goals give motivation, meaning, and focus when we feel lazy or distracted — at least so we’re told. However, recent research from the field of artificial intelligence is putting a nail in t…
