How I Ranked in the Top 3 in 30 Days Using [Case Study]

How I ranked my article by finding an untapped keyword in step by step

Updated on

Hey there! My name is Rohit Lohia, and I’m a blogger and digital marketer.

I’ve been running multiple niche sites for the past few years, and today, I’ll show you how I ranked my article by finding an untapped keyword in step by step.

What’s My Website About?

I run a website called It’s all about eCommerce, Print on Demand, Marketing, Blogging, etc.

It’s not based on a specific niche, but it’s not too general either. The main focus is to help small business owners take their businesses online.

Which Keyword Did I Choose?

When I first heard about LowFruits, I was writing articles about the Etsy marketplace.

I was finding keywords using Google Auto Suggest and some other tools, but it was too time-consuming.

Then, I found out about LowFruits and registered for a trial account that gives you some free credits.

I just opened the tool and entered my seed keyword: “How To * Etsy”

The asterisk (*)  here means that the LowFruits algorithm will replace your * with all the relevant words people search for and find keywords for you using Google Auto Suggest.

So if you enter a seed keyword “Best Guitars For *,” you can expect results like:

  • Best guitars for beginners
  • Best guitars for shredding
  • Best guitars for intermediate players

This is the best feature I’ve ever tried in a tool – it makes the research part easy.

After entering my seed keyword, I got around 446 results.

I chose one keyword from the list (“How To Block Someone on Etsy”) with around 5 weak spots. 

What Are Weak Spots (Low Fruits)

Weak spots are the low authority websites (low DA scores) and forums like Quora and Reddit that rank in the top 10 on Google for a particular keyword.

The blue fruit icons under the ‘Weak Spots’ column are forums. The green fruit icons are low-DA websites.

The more weak spots a keyword has, the easier it is for you to rank in the top 10 for that keyword. We call them “low fruits.”

Finding these low fruits helps you get initial organic traffic even if your website is brand new (without any backlinks).

One more thing I like about is that if you hover over the fruit icons, it shows you the ranking domain, its position in SERP, and its Domain Authority (DA).

This is great because you don’t have to repeatedly open Google to see the ranking websites’ Moz DA score.

Drafting The Best Content

Since I know my competition and I got my low fruit keyword, it was time to write an amazing article that could beat the ranking SERP content.

Keep in mind: finding a low fruit keyword is just the research part. You still need to create good content to rank for it.

Cover the topic thoroughly and create informative, good, and search engine optimized content.

Generally, I recommend writing at least 1000 words to ensure that your content provides readers with all the information they need.

Additionally, using keyword-rich titles and incorporating relevant keywords throughout will help improve your site’s SEO.


After I wrote a 1000-word article, I waited for the results. You can check my article here.

I expected the article to rank in the top 30 within a month. Then, something unexpected happened.

I got ranked number 8 within around 30 days, and I was shocked by the results.

At the moment of writing this case study, the article is ranked number 3. 

If you look at the screenshot, you’ll see I even outranked a 25-DA website (and my DA is just 17).

Did I Create Any Backlinks?

No, I didn’t create any backlinks for this article. I only got a few auto-generated backlinks from bots and web scrapers, which is normal.

Google Analytics Report

Now you’re probably thinking: how much traffic is this article getting?

I’ll be transparent with you. This is the last 30 days’ traffic report for this article.

I got around 283 pageviews. 

Please note that I am currently ranking at number 3. If I get a Google Snippet or the first spot, I predict this article will bring in at least 1000 pageviews per month.

My Thoughts on

Throughout this case study, I tried to be very transparent with everything I did, from research to writing the content.

So what do I honestly think about

It’s undoubtedly a fantastic tool, especially for newbie bloggers who don’t have enough authority to rank for competitive keywords.

This tool cuts your research time from hours when done manually to only a few minutes. 

The cute fruit icons make it super easy to determine which keywords are easier to rank for (and which are not).

The * symbol finds specific keywords around your niche.

Ultimately, I’m delighted by the results. I’ll keep using to find more low-fruit keywords and dominate the organic rankings.

If you have any questions, leave a comment below. I’ll do my best to answer all your queries!

Thank you, and happy Low Fruiting!

Hi Rohit, I am a newbie and trying to ride the blogging bandwagon for sometime. Its a great article it clears some confusion for me too. But I have some questions:
1. From lowfruit you got the article title, but from where did you got the sub heading titles?
2. The first keyword “block someone on Etsy has two green circles and three blue circles, but the 2nd keyword have 4 green circles. Why do you used the first keywrdas title?
3. How do you for your other blogpost, create images?
4. You have used the faq before the conclusion, anyparticular reason?
