    Hello Everyone,

    I'm looking for some advice on a domain I've just purchased:

    It's a generic product EMD .net EXAMPLE electric-fireplace.net
    10 years old
    18,000 exact searches per month
    Competition High

    What's people's experiences of ranking such domains for an Amazon review store or something similar?

    Thanks in advance.

    Do regular linkbuilding, lots of it if competition is high, diversify links, optimize your campaigns for chosen keywords you want to rank for and after some time results should come. For even better results, check what your competition is doing and try to be smarter than they are. :)

    Amazon product pages can be beaten.

    It just depends on the other competition on page 1. If there are high PR, established authority (type) sites, with strong on page SEO and lots of quality backlinks, I would not bother. If it's low competition, go for it!

    If the domain is 10 years old and non droped (so not deindexed) there will be no problem ranking it in the top 10. I have done it before.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    You can post a pic of the SEO analysis of the top 10 sites. That way, you can receive a nearly accurate answer otherwise you will receive different answers which might not really help you.

    Okay, thinkdevoid just told me about the market samurai trail so here the seo competition. Not sure what I'm looking at as I've literally just installed it...think I can beat them though with scrapebox.

    Scrapebox alone won't do the trick, it might work short-term, but for long-term and stable ranking you will need unique content than blasting with scrapebox; reviews of the product, you will have to be creative if there is nothing much to talk about the product.

    Now looking at your analysis, the competition is beatable. If you look at the ones at position 5&6, there on-page SEO is poor, you can capitalize on that. Top 7 don't have .edu or .gov backlinks; you can exploit that too. You'll also need to check the top 3 competitors' backlinks and see how powerful they are.

    I'm not sure how MS calculates strength of the competition but if they weight a lot on domain age, then you are fine since your domain age is 10yrs old.

    Overall, I believe it's doable to achieve top ranking if you go about everything systematically and with patience. Go for;
    -unique content,
    -strong on-page seo,
    -high PR contextual and blog comments backlinks along with other forms of backlinks.
    -Maintain a steady linking velocity.

    That's all I can think of for now with my sleepy head...it's almost 6am here let me hit the sack!

    Cheers,

    Wow, I think your competitor is tough and you can't beat them only using scrapebox. You must diversify your backlinks and create only high PR backlinks.
