    I seem to have selected / invested time and money on keywords that are too competitive and I followed Market Samurai too.

    I'm ranking but not in 1-2 pages. I'm bleeding cash here. I've spent a lot * already and still have no traffic to show for it. I'm getting hungry too. :(

    How can I find keywords in this niche that is going to get me traffic and not wait 2 years to see results.





    * articles, backlinks, outsourcing, time investments

    Get ready to new competition, if the old one wasn't enough.

    You could try and buy keywords...

    Is that one site or one site per keyword?
    However, for how long did you set those up and what did you did on them?
    How much money have you spend and on what?

    Also you could try and evaluate your SEO with some of the softwares shared on downloading section( try out the IBP).


    One more thing, that niche is pretty competitive..

    Wow, that's a lot to sink into one site. That niche is competitive. I have an autoblog in that niche that has always struggled. But it's at least paid for it's registry with adsense which is my only real cost for that domain.

    Are you regularly adding fresh original content? With the new G update, that may be the only way to make any headway.

    Are allof your articles and 2.0 properties indexed?

    Also , are you building backlinks to your articles and 2.0 properties.

    I'm also curious about your monetization strategy. By sinking that much cash in, I'm assuming that you are going for affiliate sales.

    Is this site of yours made as a brand or you did named it after one of the keywords?

    O, and have you tried to let it sit without anymore linkbuilding for a week or two?

    Maybe you could see the backlinks of your competition and get some links in the same places? (this worked for my; done manually)

    I would gather up all the urls of your posted articles, forum profiles and web 2.0 properties.

    Next, run your list through scrapebox to check if the links are indexed.

    Then make some rss feeds out of the list and then ping and submit the rss feeds. You could also use scrapebox to ping the list but I would jump ahead to building backlinks.

    Then take your url list and start hitting those links with scrapebox blasts.

    Find a cheap xrumer blaster here and blast those web 2.0 links you created. Go on a freelance site and get a legit backlink builder to build some proper whitehat links for your site hitting each keyword. This should not cost a lot of money, I estimate max $500, min $200.

    Also try to add some more content to your site and re-arrange your content a bit.

    If this doesn't work then move on, your project is a sunk cost.

    If you have links from a lot of 2.0 sites that have no links or page rank they will not help. Good call on the xrumer blast to the 2.0's. I would also consider linking them together to make a link wheel (study it a bit so you understand how to do it right) and that will help a lot also.

    Consider getting some .edu and .gov backlinks as well as they carry a lot more weight. If you want to be competitive in a very competitive niche you have to do everything very well, not just jump in and do it half ass and think that you are going to make a killing.

    Also join some other cpa companies to get better ads. Change your ads if they are not converting, make sure that you are targeting the actual visitors and not just who you think your visitors are.

    These guys have given you some great advice, go and get it done!

    To find a good niche use semrush firefox plugin that shows the stats on the

    first page of Big G. Google keyword is ok if you use exact match and local

    search settings. Find a keyword phrase that has low competition and decent

    local monthly searches. Click on that phrase and see what semrush addon has

    to say about it. Low page rank, domain age and backilinks are what you are

    looking for. If two sites meet that criteria then go for it.
