    Hey guys,

    Newbie here. Like many people just getting started with IM, I made the cardinal sin of mistakes. Or at least I think I may have. I may have picked too competitive of a niche. Our niche research unfortunately consisted of checking how many searches there were on google and whether the sites looked good or not. And these sites looked like they were set up a decade ago and are definitely not responsive. The sites that currently rank on the front page of google are other stores that sell this equipment, while I am a review site with Amazon Affiliate.

    So anyways, the top 10 results for xwz equipment all have page authority of 50 to 35, but for Best xyz equipment we get some 20s in there.

    So am I fucked? Does the fact that the sites look old and are not mobile friendly trump their pa of 37? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    you can also using SEMrush or market samurai to see how competitive the keyword.

    Im not sure that's accurate, if it is then ima need to have a word with the guy i paid for keyword research. a particular keyword gave me a score of 58 on the tool you linked to, but on long tail pro - the guy i used got a score of 28. Thats quite a difference
