    I set up this http://www.watchfullhouseepisodes.info a few months ago ( the mistake I regret making is taking a .info when I could ve taken a .com) when there was no other related sites. But after like 2 months, there comes this guy who buys the same domain with a .com ( http://www.watchfullhouseepisodes.com )

    I even thought of buying the site off his hands but the price he quoted for a 2 day old site was 1000$ . Though I seem to working my ass off on backlink building and his site has no considerable number ( I have 500 backlinks while he has none according to backlink watch ), his site seems to be ranking well ( recently ) for many terms.

    Is there something I should do to throw him off the grid and make my site come up in SE. ( I had a flash index page till yesterday and I took it for i felt it prevented spiders from crawling my site , was this the mistake ? )



    Also I would appreciate if Gurus here could direct me to methods to bring in huge traffic to my video site. I get like 100 hits a day but I m pretty sure I can improve on it.

    Thanks in advance

    lesson learned, always go for the .com first

    Leave it and move on to something else, the online TV market is far too competitive for someone who took .info over .com to save $10.

    The TV market is a good market to get into, but House is probably thinking too big. There's so much competition there.

    Avenge? It was your mistake from the first place!!

    If you are planning to build a good website and plan to SEO for it, you should always target a dot com... the difference is only a couple of dollars which is totally worth your time....

    Learn your lesson....

    let it go man. his site is much better looking(no offence, take it constructively). Work on something else and buy a dot com first

    Lol yea, I know. But had you taken a look yesterday, you would have voted for me !! I had a beautiful flash index page that I took down since I felt it was not allowing spiders to crawl site. BUT my question is... even 500 odd backlinks would not help out rank a .com ??? He literally has none !!!

    Thanks again all

    There's little that's beautiful to do with Flash. It's good for rollovers, if you can't use CSS, and good for minor (none irritating) animation in headers and the like, but other than that you may as well have a blank site because spiders aren't interested in it. It's just an extension of a designers e-penis.

    If you were using flash he was probably able to get decent KW density, along with H1 and Title. I suspect you only had title. But i don't know, i'm not even going to check. :)

    No mate, I have decent content too. I guess Flash prevented that from being crawled. And as of the flash thingy i was telling you, it was more like a menu to get to the episode the visitor wanted directly. More like the one on http://www.watchfriendsonline.com And like I said , I m a noob and this is my first video site ( do not know CSS as well ) Learning many lessons here though. I was just trying to find out if there was ANY way at all to make up for the mistake I made. Thats all !!

    His site is definitely more appealing. And, as one stated above, I thought it was "watch full HOUSE videos" instead of "watch FULL HOUSE videos".

    The keyword mix-up could be a bad and good thing, depending.

    So what have you learned?
    1) Buy the .com first
    2) Flash is the devil's spawn
    And for this you want revenge? Seems like you should be paying for the tutorial.

    research a domain name very similar to your target . there many tools here for free . try something , some synonym ...maybe house full season .com , house (all) complete season .com , watch house full tv . .... you know if u need some creative domain name help i can help . check monthly traffic . from the keywords . then u can change your .info domain to that . or redirect , or clone .

    @ auto blogger : .tv works well for sites ?? Are you sure mate ?
    @ elitepostings : Its actually watch "full house" episodes mate. Actually I did get traffic for few house episode searches on google. :D Is there something for I should do for getting recognised for "Full House" term or related terms ? And about the appealing look, I know his looks better. I do not know CSS ( noob :|) Trying to learn though.
    @ Arthur Dent : More experienced BHatters have pointed out that. If you have something worthwhile to post, please do. Else keep the F*** out. This aint DP to keep posting what others have already stated in your own damn words to increase post count.
    @ dilton : PM ing you mate. thanks for offering to help.

    you want the most popular, exact search term for your domain IMO... "watch full house" is the best search term right? so maybe watch-full-house.com is your domain?
    "watch full house online" shows a greater amount of searches and that .com without hyphens is avail...
    Maybe add some user friendly stuff polls, color, images...I would remove mention of the megaupload and rapidshare links as well.
    the video overlaps the cpleadad on some pages, maybe look into fixing that
    do not buy this guy's domain unless you're making a great amount from yours like a thousand dollars (or amount he wants) inside 6-12 months.
    I'm actually surprised you get 100 hits a day, just do some more keyword research :target:
