    Guys,

    Good evening to all! I hope everyone here is doing well so far. I've started working on SEO for a CBD website. Now I would like to rank it globally with some of the keywords. The website on-page is completely done. Now I need to focus on off-page. Can you please let me know what's strategy should I do in order to rank some of the keywords on Google top?

    I highly appreciate your reply here. I will wait.

    If you aren’t already ranking your on page isn’t finished. Does the site add value? Is it a better source of information and products than your competitors? Are you trustworthy? Have you got lots of reviews?

    Forget global ranking, it’s not going to happen. The best you can hope for is ranking in your country.

    You have chosen to work for a hyper competitive industry, I have CBD SEO experience and the guy was a penny pinching champagne taste and lemonade wallet client.

    He simply refused to commit to a monthly SEO contract, wanted a one-off package for 1 month "To see how it goes"

    CBD Google ranking I think fits in with Finance/Mortgages, Clothing & Apparrel and Food eCommerce stores.

    Forgive my brutality @AlasterCook but you are wayyyy in over your head here. Sounds like the owner is hiring their web guy to somehow learn how to rank his CBD website and you don't even know how to link together Search Console and Google Analytics.

    I know I've asked some daft questions on here in the last 10 years, but there is no way I would accept a job and then be told to learn about SEO on the job.

    I have a very, very bad feeling here. If you wanted to hire someone to teach you SEO the fundamentals of on-page SEO would take many hours over weeks/months.

    I would start with looking at Google Key work planner. This will help pick with long tailed keywords you should target. As the CBD industry is competitive picking the correct key words in your SEO strategy is supper important.

    All wrong. The planner is an adwords tool and useless for long tail keywords.

    I disagree it will allow you to see competitiveness of the keyword and if you scroll down will give you idea's of keywords. That's how I have used it anyway. Best of luck.

    There's a contradiction here. You say you've started working on SEO but your on page SEO is complete? This doesn't make sense. You don't just create a website then stop adding content!

    Ranking up CBD websites is quite a task, tell you what. Be ready to sell a kidney of yours to get enough money for the campaign,

    At first, you should target your country. After that, you can go for global ranking.
    For global ranking, you have to pay much effort and money, to generate backlinks and SEO.

    Read The Art of War.... He who get there first has the upper hand. If you want to rank write unique blog content attached to your website and news articles. TBH only way you will achieve ranking is high direct traffic and search location.

    What keywords or phrases are you wanting to rank for?
    Best sticking to your region to start with rather than global.
    You can often get a week free for most SEO tools like MOZ to see where you stand.
