    Hey BHW,

    This is my first time attempting to rank a site for a KW of such magnitude, the KW itself receives 40k+ Local US Exact Searches so the money is there if I get to #1.

    I have an almost exact EMD but with an extra letter S in between the two words. i.e: Cook Book -> I get cooksbook.org

    Here's the competition:
    [​IMG]

    As you can see the competition is pretty tough but I can get 1k+ high PR backlinks I reckon I might get to Top 3 rather quickly.

    What I've done so far:
    Bought 24 high quality articles.

    SEO Services I'll use:
    Social Bookmarking Bomb
    High PR blog posts, all kind.
    Homepage Backlinks.

    Secret Sauce for getting authority:
    301 redirect an aged PR domain to get the trust rank.

    Wish me luck, will update soon.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    I would've put cookbooks or anything that leaves the 2 intact, but that's just me.

    I would advise the same. Adding an s in between nullifies the exact keyword being in the domain.

    Anyway, good luck in the case study and will be following it up!

    Cheers,

    It is not really hard to get to the page one if the domain is not brand new.
    Get to the number one will be harder.

    Good luck, buddy.

    I wouldn't say it will be difficult to rank for the KW. Keeping in mind that 9 of the 10 sites have 0 or less than 5 BLEG, most of the sites have less than 1000 BLPs and their on page optimization is limited, this should not take you long. The challenge will be toppling the aged domains. With your BMP, SB and other high PR link building tools, you can get to the top..I'm watching your progress :D
