Hi everybody, this is Simon Zaku and this is how I was able to outrank (and compete) with bloggingio, Captera.com, G2.com, and wpcrafter.com for Google's page 1. 


Now note that this result may vary depending on your exact search, location, and some other SERP factors.


I'm going to break down the process I use to create this blog content and outrank huge authority sites (with my Low-Authority website, simonzaku.com). 


A lot of SEOs and website owners wonder if a small website can outrank more authoritative websites with High DA.


The short answer? Yes, it is possible with the right strategy, keyword, and timing (updates).


This very website is having a very low domain authority (implementing core white-hat organic strategies to grow my website's DA. (With a pretty high spam score).


This was as a result of a regretful SEO mistake I made back in 2020 when I paid for backlinks from a service (App) but got really SPAMMY backlinks. And when a Google update came, my site was punished. 



As you can see, traditionally, my site should not be able to outrank a site like Capterra.com or G2.com as these are huge websites with high domain authority. Also investing $1000s (or more) in SEO, backlinks and content.


Capterra.com has a Domain Authority (DA) of 78, 62.1k Linking Root Domains, 349.9k Ranking Keywords, with a 1% Spam Score according to Moz.com at the time of writing.

Read this article carefully to see how:


How I Outrank G2, Capterra, for this SEO Keyword w/ a 17 DA Website


The first thing I did was to design a plan. What was my plan?


My plan was to write a review article that is simple to read through.


Create a simple-to-read review on Cartflows and aim for the top spot.


I got my keywords from Google Keyword planner. I don't use too many tools for my keyword research. I targeted “Cartflows and Cartflows Alternatives”.


The post is currently ranking on page 1 for both keywords, 

"Cartflows alternatives" Google search
"Cartflows alternatives" Google search

How did I try to make my content better?


Analyzing the Capterra Page


So looking at the Capterra Cartflows content, we can see that they didn't include enough text. Most of the texts on that page are short bio about the alternatives.


So I did something different. I went a little bit detailed on each Cartflows alternative.


A detailed and easy guide on Cartflows alternatives to try.
A detailed and easy guide on Cartflows alternatives to try.

My next approach?


Rather than use the alternatives that the top ranking sites used.

G2 page on Cartflows alternatives

I decided to research my own and actually give them specific catflows alternatives that offer closely-similar Cartflows features. So I did that and I think it is a great thing.


Analyzing the G2 Cartflows Page


Looking at the G2 page on Cartflows alternatives, we can see that they started by introducing Cartflows in a short text. The page then listed 10 alternatives to Cartflows.


So as you can see, both sites were giving pretty generic alternatives to Cartflows. That was something that picked my interest thus I decided to do something different and better for search engine users.


Rather than create generic lists that aren't really Cartflows alternatives, I listed tools that share major features with Cartflows.


Analyzing the Bloggingio Cartflows Page - the Best I Saw


Looking at the Bloggingio content, they listed six best Cartflows alternatives in 2024. And they did a very good job on the post.

They have a detailed article, which is key, included closely-related tools, and explained each with screenshots.


Even though the screenshots look blur.


Another thing is the article pays attention to price, pricing, and just making the sale.


Even though it's good for marketing and generating sales, I believe every article should focus on showing the ins and outs of the tools rather than "How Much". So that was one thing I put down.


Now, Bloggingio listed 6 Cartflows alternatives, why not 7?


So I created a simple, easy-to-read guide on 7 Cartflows alternatives.


Tip #1 - Video Content


As you search this and open the blog post, the first thing you'd notice is the video. 


I noticed all of these people didn't have any videos embedded within their posts. So I recorded and embedded a video in the blog post.


Take a look:


That was the next approach I took to go on the first page for these target keywords.


The blog content wasn't really simplified or explained in a very simple way. So I decided to write this article in my simple Nigerian English, and conversational tone for anybody to understand. 


(I always added a translator for my site so many visitors from anywhere can access and read my blogs in their native languages too)

Tip #2 - Included Homepage Screenshots


What I did also was I included the homepage screenshots for each of these alternatives.


I'll also be updating this post as well with more screenshots and even more videos.


I plan to create individual videos for each of the catflows alternatives to make this more competitive and rank even better on Google. And if possible, rank for featured snippets.


The next thing I did was I went on to create my content and I wrote a very simple yet detailed content on these keywords.


As you can see, some of the alternatives are cell, we have ThriveCart, SamCart, Funnelkit (formerly known as WooFunnels), WooCommerce, ClickFunnels, OptimizePress, Thrive Membership.


What I did was I found out 7 (closely-related) Cartflows alternatives and then I wrote the best blog content on this.


The aim was to create the simplest guide.


I included spacing, simple words, and I linked out to a lot of related pages.


I ensured the article was simple and straightforward.


All of these tips I shared helped me to create this blog content that outrank huge, authority brand websites like G2.com, Capterra.com and even Bloggingio.com.


Do you want to learn my specific blog writing strategy that has allowed me rank dozens of blog pages for competitive SEO keywords?
