Google featured snippets are great! They’re a great way to get free exposure for your site, and Google’s Page Rank algorithm is a great way to rank pages in search results. You can improve your position in Google by submitting your blog posts to Google, and this can be done by following a step-by-step guide.
In order to understand how to rank a website in a search engine result page, it’s first helpful to understand how a website actually ranks. The answer is almost always, “It depends.” What determines what website ranks on a search engine result page are a number of factors, and it’s nearly impossible for a website to rank one result page while it’s ranking another.
This is the true success story of Rafael Alencar, the Brazilian digital marketer and founder of Imigrar, written and documented by himself. After using the Content Assistant tool, my article went from 14th to 16th in the search results directly to the excerpt page in less than 48 hours.
I have good quality content on my website – Imigração para o Canadá e Quebec. For example, my rejection rate this year is 3.30%. By the end of 2019, my rebound rate was 14%, but there was still room for improvement. Below is a screenshot of my Google Analytics account showing the performance results of my website. It doesn’t matter how good the content is if the target audience isn’t coming to my site. If they don’t know about my wonderful website and its content ….. What’s the reason? After reading the material from some of my main competitors, I wondered: How can Google rank them above my business? Seriously! Then I realized there was something else I was missing. And we’re talking SEO here, of course. I know that SEO is very important and can help any website grow if the principles are right. The sad thing about this story is that I never paid much attention to it. So, knowing that I was lagging behind my enemies, I started subscribing to many well-known SEO sites. (Neil Patel, SemRush, Moz, etc.). They gave me some advice, but honestly, it was too general and vague. I needed help getting my awesome content to the top! I don’t know how I discovered CognitiveSEO. With all due respect, I’ve never heard of them. I have tried so many products that I decided to try this one too. You know what they say: You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.
Content optimisation process
When I found cognitiveSEO and looked at the site, I saw a lot of useful tools, but not what I was initially looking for (actual help to promote my content higher in Google). But it was a mistake that I didn’t understand until later. I closed the CognitiveSEO site and looked for other options. Then I got an email from the team and saw the mention of Keyword Tool & Content Assistant. That’s how I started using this tool. I already had a keyword in mind that I wanted to rank for (Nova Scotia immigration – Portuguese version), and I already had some content, so my main goal was to improve that content. And it turned out to be a lot easier than expected. First I imported the URL of the existing content. Within seconds, I received a ton of recommendations and, most importantly for me, keyword suggestions. This is the tool I was looking for to get my content higher in the Google search results page. The content optimization tool told me what keywords to use more, what words to include, suggested topics, etc. I’ll be 100% honest: At first, I was completely skeptical. Some of the keywords had some relevance to the content, but their use was very strange. But I decided to move on. So I used almost all the keywords recommended by cognitiveSEO. Even the ones I never would have thought of. I was able to increase my content performance score to 97. Immediately after I made all the changes, the tool showed me a yellow box: This content may appear in the first 10 results of Google. I literally said this to myself: Indeed! Really? Come on! This tool knows nothing about Brazil, immigration to Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada (a current trend among Brazilians). And it’s in English! I write in Portuguese. I knew it would help me in some way. But a top 10 listing? There’s no way… I was unprepared for what lay ahead.
Results after using the cognitiveSEO content wizard
Before using the cognitiveSEO tool, my content was ranked 14-16 in search engines for the keyword imigração nova scotia. After all the changes by the content optimization tool, my article went from 14th to 16th place in the search results for that keyword to the very first place in less than 48 hours! On top of that, my site now ranks zero in Google’s answer box in search results. We all know how hard it is to win an answer box. Google literally tells people: Look no further, you’ll find the answers to all your questions here. You can see that my rating is higher than the official Nova Scotia government site. You can take a look at the screenshot below with the snippet and find my page in the Google Featured Snippet. Your domain authority score is 60% higher than mine. But the Content Optimizer tool actually convinced Google that my content was better. I was so surprised that I did two things:
- First I searched for this keyword on three different computers, necessarily on different networks! I couldn’t believe my eyes.
- And secondly, I took the initiative to contact cognitiveSEO and share my findings with them!
I will never publish an article again without using the Optimize Content tool! Thanks to the CognitiveSEO team. You really answered what I was looking for in my content strategy! We hope these examples will help you understand how to use cognitiveSEO’s Content Optimizer tool, how it can help you, and how you can effortlessly see third-party results.

Droughts in the real world have caused consumers to turn to online games for entertainment, and the gaming industry is no exception. However, with competition stiffening and budgets shrinking, many publishers have been forced to make sacrifices. This can be seen in the number of game publishers who have closed shop in recent decades. Of course, some of the recent closures may have also been due to the rise of free-to-play games, but that wasn’t always the business model going forward. And now, it seems some of those publishers are coming back.
