The long road to dominating Google search results starts from making smart keyword research decisions.
How strong are the pages that already rank on the front page of Google?
Google is pretty good at figuring out user intent behind a search query, so you just need to piggyback from the existing search results.
For example, I struggle to rank for content upgrades while having that keyword in the actual domain name of my site.
So today I m hoping to fix this lack of clarity and present you with a little FAQ in regards to Ahrefs Keyword Difficulty score.
Our Keyword Difficulty score is purely based on the quantity and quality of backlinks pointing at the pages that rank in Google top 10 search results for a given keyword.
