What is “Filling the Gaps SEO Technique”?
So my blog was already ranked on the first page of Google, but somehow I couldn’t break the top 3 positions for my target keyword.
After reading my blog post several times, I tried to find the problems in my article. After putting all my efforts in 1-2 days, I found the following reasons that were responsible for it:
- My blog post does not meet the user’s intent for my target keyword (incomplete information)
- Grammar mistakes in my article
- Requires additional content to help meet visitor needs
- Any additional features that help me stand out in the SERP
These were the gaps that prevented me from ranking in the top 3 positions and that’s why I called this SEO technique “Filling the Gaps”.
After finding out the reasons, I used the “Filling the Gaps SEO Technique” and concluded the following:
- Researched for the related keywords to the primary keywords
- Added more information to cover as much as possible.
- Added a plugin for “Table of Contents.”
- Added FAQ scheme to distinguish my result and cover more area in SERP
- I bought Fiverr’s rewriting service to improve grammar and sentence formation in the article.
- More than 300% increase in organic traffic.
- I started ranking in the top 3 positions for my target keyword
- So in my opinion, “Understanding user intent is more important than anything in SEO.”
