    My IM beginning was in Feb, in middle of March I started a MNS
    in Sport industry...I put only one article, good on page SEO and
    the only off-page SEO was about 30/40 BLs.

    Now just 2 months later my website is #3 for the main keyword
    (it even strongly occupied #4 two weeks ago and since yesterday
    is already #3) and #9 for the second keyword.

    Competition is 11 Millions and the first 5 G pages are full with
    famous sport stores...

    So, WTF? Am I lucky bastard or what? If no, it seams that a site
    needs just good on-page and few BLs to "fight" well. :p

    As for the BLs, probably I should stick to these BLs and to use them
    on another website and if it works again it would be a nice approach.

    P.S. Here is the moment to mention that one month ago I started
    another website with everything similar, just different niche and
    two weeks after, it steadily stopped on #10, where now is (this site
    has competition of 200K).

    11 million results, isn't 11 million competitors. It's called a micro niche because you probably have 0-10 people actually competing to rank #1, for that specific keyword. It's easy to rank micro niche sites. One of mine went from #3 to #1 yesterday. Continue to build links, and don't forget to add more content once in a while.

    I know that 11 million results is not 11 million competitors, but it's well accepted practice to put "your keyword" in brackets and I think everybody do it.

    And I'm sure that the people that trying to rank for this keyword are far more than 0-10, as first 3 pages of G are full with G Adwords adds on the right and above the search results for exactly the same keyword... also local/exact searches per month are about 5K...

    Otherwise, thanks for suggestion, Abstroose!

    That's awesome good for you I just looked and say my blog and my website listed on Google's 1 st page for the same keyword six figure income. I am so freaking excited only 2 months for the blog which is #9 and three for the website which is at #6. I am a complete newbie and have pretty good backlinks for the blog so I kind of agree that Bl's are a huge help.

    You should give an [edited] screenshot of the keyword competition analysis from either Ms or TT4 so we can see if you'vew really got something going or not. :)

    And how much traffic are you getting from these keywords?

    We have been doing backlinks on youtube with videos. This seems to work very well. Played with the titles some and we got top pos in 6 different KW in our niche. This then bumped us from page 23 to page 3 within 2 days. We have about 40 videos in different channels point back to us. Youtube and google are the same. I was seeing videos indexed in less then 45 mins into google.

    I don't get lots of traffic unfortunately, only between 20/30 visits a day as you keep in mind the targeted keyword gets 4400 monthly (I think if you build a MNS it's pointless to go for a keyword with just 1K searches monthly like the most gurus suggest).

    I'm wondering if it will be successful strategy to add more articles, targeting other keywords as well.

    Also I should bring other sources of traffic like Youtube and Social, because relying only on G traffic is not enough.
