    okay so i found a good gaming keyword and niche and found out that the exact match domain name is available, however when i search my keyword into google IGN, Gamespot, wikipedia and yahoo answers pop up.

    will i be able to outrank these high PR sites with good seo optimised articles and good backlinking + (exact match domain) ?

    It all depends on your skills and experience. Yahoo answers will be a fairly easy target.

    yes, you can easily outrank them. Just a couple of links with the right anchor text would be enough.

    The question is....why would you want to compete?

    Get your keywords as close to these sites as possible and then use them to build your brand and bring in traffic. Both Wikipedia and Yahoo Answers, if done right - will bring in a large amount of traffic on their own to your site.

    Simple rule, If they are listed with their inner pages, then grab it. If main domain is on the SERPs, then stay away.

    Big sites will rank for a lot of secondary keywords, if the pages that you see as competing pages don't have backlinks and are far away from the front page, going top 10 will be in fact easier than outranking home pages of stablished unknown domains.

    I agree, if you have good onpage seo and build some quality backlinks its not that hard to out rank inner pages, on the other hand to be able to out rank main domains... its possible but be prepared to do a lot of linkbuilding.

    Alright, two questions for you two:

    1) What is cca?

    2) Roughly HOW many backlinks would he be looking at (ballpark it if you can) and what do you mean by "quality" (what kind of pr and what kind of other key terming would he be looking at)?

    I'm kind of a noob to this, so could you explain this a little more clearly?

    I think I get what you are saying, basically:
    #1) If the main landing page (the exact domain) is on pg1, don't do it.
    #2) If one of the pages of the site (domain/page) is on pg1, go for it.

    Is that right? I'm trying to get into micro-niches, and I keep hitting pages like #2 and I don't go for them. But if I'm getting this right, that's the way to go?

    Edit: man that's hard to get around the triggers. Hopefully that made sense...

    While we're asking questions, to research my keyword competition on google do I type:

    key word

    or

    "key word"


    AND


    When looking for traffic on google keyword tool do I use exact, phrase or broad match?

    yes. just focus on keyword backlinking. when exact match domain is there, then outranking the bigger ones are easy.

    "keyword" and exact match, broad will give you a negligible amount of results based on each individual word of your keyword phrase (ie. white board markers would return broad results for individuals word of the phrase and combinations of the words; white, board, markers, white markers, board markers, etc.)

    It should be relatively simple. If you focus mainly on this keyword you will definately outrank them.

    2)Hi, it's impossible to quantify how many backlinks you need, just keep building a steady flow of diversified backlinks like web 2.0, high profile backlinks, manual blog comments, article directories, blog networks, social bookmarks, .edu/.gov backlinks... and you will be fine.
