Keyword Golden Ratio method

With this method, you can find low competition keywords and rank very fast in top 10 results on Google. Based on the case study performed by Doug you can usually rank for KGR keywords in less than one month.

What do we need for this method?

  • Keywords (You can export keywords from your AdWords account with a tool called Keyword Planner)
  • Search Volumes (You can get this data from keyword Planner too)
  • Allintitle results (You will get this number from Google query allintitle:yourkeyword)

Term explanation:

Search Volume = Average Monthly searches on Google for a specific keyword Allintitle = Number of websites that use your keyword in the title.

Not sure which number exactly represent Allintitle? Please check the image below:

From the image, we can see that 597 pages use “this is my keyword” in their title

How to calculate KGR?

First, we need to set up ground rules.

  • Search Volume must be equal or less than 250 per month
  • KGR result must be equal or less than 0.25

KGR formula:

Allintitle / Search Volume = 0.25 or less

Let’s see this through examples:

Keyword: kw1, Search Volume = 220, Allintitle = 27

Based on the data above for kw1: 27 / 220 = 0.12

Conclusion for kw1: the keyword is excellent since the KGR is less than 0.25

Example 2 – Keyword: kw2, Search Volume = 200, Allintitle = 156

156 / 200 = 0.78

Conclusion for kw2: the keyword is bad since the KGR is score is over 0.25

Why it works and what you can expect from KGR method?

It works because this method gives you ultra easy keywords. Still, this method might look silly to someone who doing SEO for a long time. Because it’s in their blood to analyze every competitor and to focus on medium or high volume keywords. Plus they like to have built up a strategy for backlink creation. This is understandable for someone who is in SEO game for a long time.

When it comes to someone who entering SEO game the KGR is the best way to avoid mistakes you will usually do with competition analysis and link building. With this method, you don’t need to focus on link building and still you will rank.
