Hi i have decided on a niche to focus on but have noticed there is a forum which has started with a pretty accurate domain name and around 15,000 topics and around 85,000 posts on its forum. Is it possible to overtake this forum and become the niche leader or is it too late that it would cost too much time+$$$ to overthrow. I have thought i can build my own forum and perhaps pay for spam content also to negatively affect the other forum. Also i could just scrape all the posts and import them into my forum and see what happens with the google rank etc..? any thoughts or ideas on what would be a good plan of action??
