Ranking Two Letter Keywords

    Has anyone ever attempted this?
    SEMrush
    How much harder was it than normal keywords? Is there anything that should be done differently?

    I'm trying to get an artist ranked for the keyword "BO"

    It gets 368,000 exact searches a month.

    Anyone have an estimation as to how long this would take to reach page 1?

    Thanks

    I had never tried this type of keyword. Its really hard to rank with such kind of keywords.

    Yes, me too, I never try two letter keyword, it maybe hard to do.
    Uoften will find there are less searches, if it's short for a certain work, it may work. Anyway, thanks.

    I see no real reason why this should be that difficult? I don't think an unusual word like that would be very competitive and so should rank quite easily.

    I think it is very difficult to implement. I have not heard many people doing SEO for such competitive keywords.

    You can get the rank for two letter keyword in 5 months. If you invest more for keyword optimization.
    You can come to first page of google with huge money. But getting two letter word to the top page is meaning less for any sales or leads.

    The question should be, how often can you use and write about BO. Also is this the only keyword? If so, I should advise to have additional keywords to rank as well.
