I was just in Ahrefs looking up some keywords and thought I’d take a general look to see where I’m at with things, particularly with the latest post I did for “traeger smoked chicken breast”, which was a keyword I found that had a lower score in Keysearch but decent volume.
Turns out I’m ranking on page two for a bunch of related keywords on that topic, ranging from 800 to 18K search volume per month! And I published that article just a little over a month ago.
I never rank that fast for things, so moral of the story - doing that detailed keyword research and finding those specific nuggets really pays off! I’ll keep tabs on it, but I’m hoping I continue to go up in rankings for those.
