    Hi
    Im trying to figure out why big "G" wont rank me higher*

    The keyword Im targeting is:

    TweetAttacks Review*

    I have two websites on this

    1) tweetattacksreview [dot] org (this is on page 1)

    2) ptc-list [Dot] /2010/09/16/tweetattacks-review-grab-your-copy-of-tweetattacks-now-get-a-huge-discount-here-tweetattacks-discount/


    My Competition:

    1) yourlifestyledesigner[dot]net/articles/tweet-attacks-review-twitter-marketing-possibilities-endless


    2) twitteraddertool[dot]com

    And a few other on 1st page*


    My 1st site has keyword in domain

    Has TONS of backlinks

    My second site is over 3 years old + many posts

    If anyone can lead me in right direction would be appriciated

    P.S

    My first site also has few links from ezinearyicles. It also has a PR OF 2

    My competition has VERY LITTLE backlinks ... Funny they rank so well*


    Thanx

    Did you try building keyword related linkwheels. I see a ezine article is right above you. I would:
    1. Do a ezine and link to your site
    2. Get a blogspot (tweet-attacks-review.blogspot.com and tweetattacksreview.blogspot.com is available) ponting to your site and ezine
    3. Make a squidoo to blogspot and your site
    4. Make a twitter and post links to all of them with your site in the profile info.
    5. Social bookmark your twitter.
    6. Ping your social bookmark feed

    You're already on page 1 so that should crush em.

    it's not very easy to analyze competition just by using YSE data. there're many ways to hide links from competitors

    did you try article marketing? Get people click on your site link using a catchy title. Once people click one your site leaving the first search result of your competitor you will surely move to the top spot

    Um your homepage looks pretty bad you might want to learn some photoshop. Even if you did start getting more traffic to this site the conversions would be alot lower then they could be. Your call to action are tiny links, atleast in my browser. I'm at 1920x1080 res though.

    Well, don't take this too harshly, but your first site is absolutely hideous. When going to it I was immediately reminded of an oldschool geocities type page with blinking rainbows and such. Also, trying to read the first article I thought my eye balls were going to strain out of my skull. Make your headlines bigger, make it easier to read, easier to skim through while still catching attention on the main points, and giving them a link to follow up with.

    Agag2,

    1.Your on page seo sucks, I recommend you hire a freelancer with a masters degree to rewire all that content up for you with a seo keyword density of 2.0% for your keyword.

    2. You have failed at providing enough backlinks on your website, your competitor currently has 38 backlinks indexed with google which link back to his website with a nice varation of keywords including the keyword your trying to rank for which is great for him as this makes it not look spammy even tho this was spammed onto forums. This guy has xrumer or another related software such as scrapeboard, I myself have both of them :). The current backlinks you have made are garbaged because the 6 I am seeing right now that you currently do have is not enough link juice to beat your competetions 38 backlinks.

    I recommend getting your link onto more then 38 web properties such as social bookmarketing websites, also I recommend you either pay for or buy a software to post your link onto forum properties as this is good link juice,then spam these links with bookmarketing demon which will get them indexed much faster to see faster results, obviously this is the reason why your competition is owning you right now..he is backlinking his backlinks...and in all honesty this is a weak keyword and should not take you long to accomplish the task of taking over.

    Rule #1 - don't give your niche/keyword in public. Bad idea.

    There are plenty of threads on there about getting better rankings, like this one:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/270677-how-i-get-mad-rankings-google.html

    I would just do a simple link push and throw in some .gov and .edu links as well. Drop some manual links on some high PR authority sites related to twitter or social networking. Relevant links are way better and longer lasting than a bunch of spammy links.

    Your competitions below,

    What did you do get a blast with xrumer on your site and expect it to outrank everyone? Will thats not how it works, you need your backlinks to be indexed by google by backlinking them and pinging them which is something book marketing demon can do.

    Ah It looks like I was looking at the wrong site, your site is being outranked because your site screams spammy site left and right.

    Google recently did a change in its algorithm to combat spam, I have many niches and thus have many competitors I keep an eye on every day for the past 4 years I have watched how new websites have come and gone with blackhat/whitehat/ and greyhat moves.

    Your site has a lot of backlinks coming from the same domain, with the recent google changes one of my very own competitors has fallen from being ranked 1 for this keyword to being put down to the bottom at 9 with my own keywords hitting 1-4 with different web 2.0 properties which play as portals to my site. My competitor held positon for a few months with this spamming direction of his but now is probably in a panic mode as I reap all the benefits of being ranked 1 for my primary keyword in my niche.

    What I am saying is your site is too new to have that many backlinks, You over killed it to the point it screams spam, you need to analyze your competitions backlinks and just beat it by 35-40%. If I was use I would get some web 2.0 properties ranked first to get some fast traffic to your site to test out how its conversation will even be...which i predict poor...You will learn as you go, good luck.

    +++EDIT!+++
    PS I agree with rocket, Never Give your niche out ever! or else you might find in the next couple of days a bunch of new similar websites outranking you ontop of the people already outranking you.

    Thank for the new input

    1)which part is spammy? The fact I have many backlinks from same domain or the fact they are from low PR/high OB links? Or both?

    About giving away this niche o don't think it makes much of a difference reason is because it's not like I "unearthed" some golden keyword w market samurai etc etc thousands of people know about this product already...

    Anyways thanks for the help

    In this case its both spamming with the same domain and spamming with too many backlinks in this time period.

    Here is something you should do, Create an article with 600 words seo'd at 2% for your keyword tweetattack review,post it on ezinearticle.com and then spam it onto 60 forums as your main competitor has done so, then ping the article,forum backlinks,and backlink the forum profile lniks you just made with 100+ social bookmarketing websites(can be done with services or bookmarketing demon, after 3-14 days you'll see amazing results, Don't be surprised if your ranked somewhere 2-3 with this advise.
