    Hello Blackhatters!

    If you were given almost any keyword, excluding the totally top ones like "weight loss" and "acne", how high would you say you could "guarantee" you would be able to rank for the keyword in G's SERPs? Say, top 100? 500?

    Let me rephrase, an example:
    "I'm able to rank in top 500 for almost any keyword in a month!"

    To be more precise, SEO methods don't matter as long as you would be able to KEEP the place for .. let's say 6 months.

    the Top 5 seems just too good to be true

    All this poll will show is how good all the newbies think they are, when they're making 0$ a month.

    good point, but I think we can safely assume that most of the newbies will select Top 5, and thus rule them out:)

    Too much range in this survey... Anyone can rank in top 1k results by just mentioning the keyword on a page and anything more than that... you're in the top 500.

    The real challenge starts from 50 down.

    I can get almost any keyword to top 10 for sure. Now how long would it stay there is another question :p

    If you say any key term then you need to add to your time.

    there are lots of terms that you can use for sites that will get traffic that you can rank in a month. The ones that get several k searches a month and has several million sites that you are going head to head with will take you much long.

    The time is being set to a month, the variable is how high one believes they can rank in general.
    True, it is very vague to just say "excluding extremely hard terms like weight loss and acne".

    So far, people here show pretty good self-esteem... -or- there is still plenty of room in the SEO competition market, if only one chooses the right keywords.

    I think the top 100 is pretty reasonable for most members here that know what they are doing. All of the others that said top 10 or top 5 they are either really good or really full of sh*t

    I assume by ranking you mean to make it to the Top 10, right?

    I would be interested to know from people that can rank in the top 10 in one month, what kind of resources they would use to get to this result and sustain it. I mean is there anyone that can do it just using their own time? Are they outsourcing? What would a reasonable outlay of time/$$$/resources would they expect to use to get this result? You do not have to list your methods to reply to this. But you could if ya wanted to, lol
