    if a brand dominates 80% of the top ten for its own name, is it possible to get a site above it?

    You could in theory but it would be costly. What I do is sign up to their newsletter or list as a customer and get regular updates on products and new releases. I use that to target, let them do all the research

    My opinion is possible,
    Requires Lot of search about your competitor,
    Requires Solid SEO techniques
    Spent Lot of time

    Nothing is impossible.
    Set Target.never give up until you reach target.

    Yes but you need to do some bad things which are unethical and bad... just bad.

    You can.

    However it'll take a lot of time AND money if it is a really big company.

    God luck with that.

    You need to check anchor profile for that brand or is it a really big brand ? For normal brand you can rank easily.

    It would be quite difficult. Once I tried to do a lot by throwing up so many quality links but it never surpassed it. Settled in page 1 but could not overtake it

    I have seen some sites getting the top rank crossing the brand site but don't know how. So, I believe it is possible.

    How about if there is a big authority site at #8. Could it be pushed up?

    There are a lot of variables but it feels unlikely. My understanding is that Google tends to rank brands more favourably. What is a user looking for when they are searching for the brand?

    The brand.

    Maybe if you were doing a review (opinion or user generated) site, that may rank on the first page for that term as users would be interested in that.

    But a respectable brand will have all their social profiles, maybe some news, etc. Ranking above these high authority sites sounds like a challenge for white/grey hatting.

    It's not impossible. But can't say for ranking a website.
    But it will be easier to go with a youtube video. I have beaten few official websites for their product keywords/name with a youtube video.
