The Keyword Golden Ratio

The Keyword Golden Ratio (KGR) is a Keyword Research concept I developed to find long tail keywords in a data-driven way.

The concept is simple but I made the formula accessible by making it simple and nearly foolproof.

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

The Keyword Golden Ratio must be less than 0.25.

The ratio is:

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.

Using SEM Rush to Find KGR Terms from Competitors

You all know I’m a big fan of SEM Rush. I think they are a great tool to use to find Keyword Golden Ratio (KGR) terms.

When I first started experimenting with the KGR, I used SEM Rush almost exclusively to find the terms. In the video, I share the best ways to filter the massive amount of data you can get from SEM Rush so it’s manageable.
