This isn't just any SEO project...we’ll go through a step-by-step process of identifying low-competition keywords, writing SEO-friendly content, and driving traffic to your site!

What you'll learn

  • Understand the step-by-step process of identifying low-competition keywords essential for ranking on Google's 1st page.
  • Learn how to write SEO-friendly content that enhances your website's visibility and search engine ranking.
  • Master strategies for driving targeted traffic to your site, increasing visibility and potential conversions.
  • Acquire a powerful skill set in SEO, enabling your website to secure a spot on the 1st page of Google search results, significantly increasing click-through rates.

Why Is This SEO Practice Project Awesome?

In the SEO world, if you want your website to get clicks then you have to get it onto the 1st page of a Google search. Think about it: when you're searching for something, how often do you go to the second page?

But that also means that learning to get your website onto the 1st page of a Google search can be an incredibly powerful skill!

Wait... What's a Project?

One of the most common things we hear from students is: "I want to build more projects!"

We love hearing that, because building projects is really the best way to learn. And unique, challenging projects can really make your portfolio stand out for potential employers.

But just feel so good when you actually build something real!

That's why we've created ZTM Projects. A collection of comprehensive portfolio and practice projects that you can use to advance your knowledge, learn new skills, build your portfolio, and sometimes even just have fun!
