Ahrefs conducted a study to find out how many keywords can you rank for with one page? Result reveals that a number one ranking page will rank for other 1000 more keywords in top ten.
Ahrefs picked 3million search queries randomly and checked the top ranking pages and how many other keywords are they ranking for.
This chart shows the average number of keywords that pages ranking in top 20, also rank for:
And this is the median number of keywords that pages ranking in top 20, also rank for:
Median value is more than two times smaller – around 400 keywords.
How many high volume keywords can you also rank for?
It looks like it is common to rank 2-3 keywords with over 1000 searches per month while it is rare to rank for more than one keyword with above 10,000 monthly searches with a single page.
Ahrefs also studied the data to find how unique are these “also rank for” keywords. “Our goal was to see how many keywords that a page ranks for are unique to the point where they don’t have even a single common keyword with the rest of the group.”
The number of unique without any common word is very low.
