    Okay so i started a blog about 2 years ago. Now I'am on page 4 of a keyword with 2,000,000,000 (billion competitors). How I will make it to page one and then it will be awesome. Also have a few other keyword with 2+ billion competitions on page 10, 5 and 4. So i guess 2 years of hard work does pay off.

    How many exact searches per month does the keyword have, roughly? 2 years sounds like a pretty long time to be ranking a keyword, hopefully it's worth it!

    It has about 400,000 searches a month. And the others have in total around 300,000.

    Thank You :)

    I will be starting soon with a blog my wife has done for over 2 years- she has been doing it because she loves the topic--- she has never tried to make money with it..... just saying, maybe there is more to the story.

    Just keep working and targeting long tail keywords with your blog posts in the mean time. Make sure your on-page SEO is as good as it can be. If getting to page 4 was a lot of work, getting to page one will seem impossible.

    I have been there, and getting from page 4 to 2 was a breaking point, I gave up. At this point, you will probably need a lot of natural, high authority backlinks, so look into "article baiting" which will probably be your best source of those quality links.

    I honestly think that is what people should be doing it, writing the topic because they love it and not much because of the money, that way there is always a reason to continue :)

    Thank You!

    Yes thank you very much for your advice, im slowly building backlinks, commenting on others peoples blogs writing articles for others and a lot more lol. Hopefully i wont give up. Thank You!

    Also if anyone wants to rank their website better when i used this tool:
    http://gtmetrix.com/
    and fixed a lot of changes according to them, in a few weeks i got even better rankings. Just make sure you know what you are doing and backup your website before changing anything.

    Are you ranking for buying KWs? You'll have wasted 2 years if you spend optimizing the blog for "golf"

    He can always sell banner ad space or do pay per impression ads if he is desperate for a way to monetize the site.

    And i already have adsense which is making good money for now but can't wait till i get on page 1 or at least 2. Also I don't sell banner ads yet and don't want to put advertise here blocks until someone contacts me to advertise on my website because i think it can kill a website value quickly in my visitors eyes.

    The first few pages are the hardest. Keep it up and don't forget to consider other traffic sources! You never know when Google will screw you over...

    Create interesting blogs and promote them to top ranking and sell them for good price.

    Create keyword rich content and bookmark your blogs then and there . your blog will go to first page. all the best.

    This is my thought.
    Page 4 for even "forex" isn't hard to get to... Page 1 is a nightmare.

    Congrats... keep up the hard work and try to get on Page 1. It may not be the easiest thing in the world but since you have already worked so hard, put some more effort to get even better ranking.
