SEO Tips to Rank Higher in Telecom Market

Gold Nugget Buzz-words

Gold Nugget keywords have very high monthly search volume and they are easy to rank. That’s why we call them Gold Nuggets. Buzz-word keywords, on the contrary, typically have extremely high search volume and they are also very difficult to Rank for. Gold Nugget + Buzz-word keyword combos, like self organizing networks and self organized networks in the above graph, are rare. They have a high search volume and low ranking difficulty.

Our Recommendation: This is a no-brainer; self organizing networks and self organized networks keywords are great content marketing opportunities. Carry out a keyword analysis and start producing keyword optimized content on a frequent basis. Telecom Buzz-words such as Self-Organizing Networks are usually highly-competed regardless of the easy ranking index. So, maximize the ranking of your content through high-value backlinks.

Over-rated Keywords

Some keywords might seem “Over-rated”, i.e. they have particularly high ranking difficulty in relation to the search volume. Over-rated keywords can be topical, or specific, like son technology and son mobile are in this case, and that’s why they can be difficult to Rank for.

Our Recommendation: Target Over-rated keywords such as son technology and son mobile only when necessary, and if you have cash-cow products to sell in these segments. You will need skilled resources for creating and publishing keyword optimized, high-quality content. Additionally, strong backlinks will be required. We also recommend searching for adjacent keywords with lower Keyword Difficulty.

Low Hanging Fruits

Self Organizing Network is a crowded telecom Buzz Word, but below the umbrella topic you can find narrower, and more specific keywords, which are much easier to Rank and they can bring good amounts of relevant traffic to your website.

Our Recommendation: Forget about targeting the trendy Buzz Words! Think outside of the box and make a thorough search analysis to find more specific, or adjacent keywords matching your business proposition. In this example, self optimizing networks or son networks could be good opportunities. Ranking on the First Google Search Result Page should not be too difficult, but it will require a detailed keyword analysis and highly targeted, and frequently published content.

Long-tail and Niche Keywords

Long-tail and niche keywords are easy to Rank on the First Search Results Page, but usually, provide very little organic traffic on a per keyword basis. However, don’t under estimate this area. The upside is that you can capture highly relevant telecom professional audiences and specialist buyers if you can offer them content matching their interests.

Our Recommendation: Target Long-tail keywords and niche topics (in this case: anr lte, d son, son lte and c son) if you have valuable and unique information and solutions to offer. However, put in extra effort to come up with thorough keyword analysis and produce high-quality, keyword optimized content. Great headlines will be of particular importance when trying to rank for specific searches.

Geographic Keyword Analysis

Geographic search analysis is important – you want to optimize your content for keywords, which are searched in your market area. You can use SEO tools to find out where your target keywords are searched most when planning your marketing and sales activities. Here is a breakdown of how the search volume of the Self Organizing Networks keywords is divided between the top three countries.
