The Keyword Golden Ratio: Best Keyword Research to RANK in Google

 

These keywords can often be ranked in the top 10 in less than a month if you follow this rule:

The Keyword Golden Ratio must be less than 0.25.

The ratio is this…

The number of Google results that have the keyword phrase in the title divided by the local monthly search volume, where the LMS is less than 250.

If the KGR is less than 0.25, then you should rank in the top 100 when your page is indexed.

You should still rank in the top 250 when the KGR is between 0.25 and 1. And it should be pretty fast.

WHY? What happened?

I published a BUNCH of KGR content.

And, when the ratio is over 1 then you know that it’s a more competitive term even though the search volume is quite low, under 250.

This Golden Ratio is going to be your ticket to get fast results and that’s very important when you are getting started on your site.

    Hi Doug, thanks for using videos to explain KGR. I open your email and clicking this post link right away because I’m waiting for your new post about KGR. I have few questions, Doug:

    – What if I use Global Monthly Search instead of Local Monthly Search? What’s the impact and differences in ranking result?

    Currently, I’m doing keyword research with your KGR method for my foreign site.

    Thanks for your answer, Doug.

    • Laila

      I have the same question

      • Alzufri

        Well, looks like we have same low class questions here and even worse asked by noob people like us.

        So, Doug prefer to go with that expert guy comment who own LinkHero below and the one that need backlink no matter where it came from even from Internet Marketing niche like this Nichesiteproject.com

        Oookay, I’m a noob and I’m outta here.

        • For the people who happened to be reading along – Alzufri sent me a rude email for not replying to his comment fast enough.

          Sorry – Alzufri – It was a fine question and one that I didn’t think of. I just got back from vacation so it took a little time to reply to your question. In fact, I thoughtfully reflected on your question so I could give you the best answer possible.

          Anyway, that’s what Alzufri’s comment is all about. Yep, I could delete it, but this seems a bit more fun. Right? 🙂

      • Thanks for asking, too, Laila.

          Thanks for your answer.
          I was just listening your YT video”The Niche Site Content Plan That Attracts Massive Traffic Without Backlinks” and Penny there said that she is using an excel spreadsheet template and hours work now takes 10 minutes to find KGR (it starts at 1:15:20 in the video).You also say that it’s possible to create a hyperlink and it does the search for you. I’m not too familiar with excel or hyperlinks, do you have any videos about how to do it or could you guide me to resource that would explain how to do that.
          Thanks for your time, Doug. It’s really appreciated.

    • Hey Alzufri – thanks for reading!

      I’m not sure about using the GMS vs the LMS. I haven’t tried it but I assume it’s pretty close to the same type of data. But it depends on the number of searches that come from LMS and where they come from.

      I’d probably focus on the LMS. But let me know how it turns out.

  • Hi Doug,

    Thanks for this, I’m having great results with the KGR, it really works!

    I have one question, do you go for keywords that are plurals of high volume keywords?

    For example, best dog bed may have a LMS of 12000, but best dog beds may have a LMS of 250 and be KGR compliant.

    Would you still go for this or will Google just treat them as the same?

    • Sammy – thanks for reading.

      do you go for keywords that are plurals of high volume keywords?
      No, I don’t. Normally, plurals are treated as the same as the singular.

  • Hey Doug,

    Thanks for the explainer videos. Short and sweet and they made your point!

    Just to clarify…in your final video, you said if the number of local monthly searches is 170 but the all in title search comes up with a zero (0), you should NOT target this keyword?

    Do you just avoid all keywords with more than 250 local monthly searches because they are not valid for the KGR calculation or do you try and rank for them once you have targeted ALL the keywords with a KGR of 0.25 or less and less than 250 local monthly searches?

    Cheers,
    Michelle

    • Michelle, thanks for watching! Shorter seems to be better.

      Just to clarify…in your final video, you said if the number of local monthly searches is 170 but the all in title search comes up with a zero (0), you should NOT target this keyword?
      Uh, did I say that? I’ll have to rewatch. When did I say that?

      0 is less than .25 so you SHOULD GO FOR THAT.

      Do you just avoid all keywords with more than 250 local monthly searches because they are not valid for the KGR calculation or do you try and rank for them once you have targeted ALL the keywords with a KGR of 0.25 or less and less than 250 local monthly searches?
      No. Not at all. I go for whatever I deem worthy.
      But if you’re launching a site the KGR is great to get early traffic. It’s a good way to target low competition keywords.
