    Hello,

    I may be crazy i donno, in November, 2016 i started one website in a very hard niche, why? Because i have some social media accounts exaclly in that niche...around 40K people.

    My main competitors are :

    • Amazon
    • Ebay
    • Pinterest
    • Aliexpress
    • etc
    On some keywords i'm on position 15-20 in google after this giants... my question...should i stop and forget about this site? I mean i tried a lot of things and i'm not able to get him higher.

    If somehow i succeed the return will be awesome, there are around 70k/ - 300k month searches for every keyword. I got like 50-80 visits now beeing in pos 15-20

    I have other projects i focus more but this one is getting me crazy..

    If you are already at 15-20 you are on the good way, now you "just" need strong backlinks + time that will push you further. IMO for this time period that you've specified as well as competition seems pretty decent ranking so far.

    Also, I've never looked at your exact list of sites above (Amazon, Ali, Ebay...) as competitors they are usually pretty easy to outrank.

    Well i have invested some time in this website, money just 150$.

    The point is that all the sites in this niche are stores, mine isn't and i can't find authority websites to buy a link or something

    Are you sure your niche is so specific you can't find authority sites? That's impossible.

    Even if you can't find any i can literally post in a somewhat close niche blog, a very relevant post. You need need to be creative.

    Don't stop there mate. try to expand further.

    Are your kw sugesting buying intent?

    If so, why stop? Look for ways to get your keywords into 1st page, even if it means to go for even longer tail kw.

    For example, try to rank better by adding one extra word in your kw, such as 'best' or '2017'.

    Be flexible.

    This is so called e-commerce keywords, very hard to outrank those giant store like Amazon from a normal perspective. But if Top 10 results got some weak pages like 1 or 2 weaker page, forum post, weaker store, you may have a chance to jam your site in there.

    Never give up, but still spend your money wise, gradually build quality links, referring anchors try a bit like "xxxx store click here" "xxx product official store" like these to fake a bit in Google's eye, and I think there are some e-store certificate guidelines only implemented by store like Google trust or whatever I have no idea, but with a easy search, you could get the answer, maybe zebra update?

    OP, do not give a fuck to those competing websites, ranking is an algo and if you are better than your competitors you'll outrank them. Think about this: Amazon affiliate websites outrank Amazon itself most of the time. My recommendation:
    -increase your content (at leat more then anybody on the first page)
    -adjust your keyword density (reduce it and track your ranking and reajust it if necessary)
    -throw in some social signals
    -add ssl to your site if possible
    -continue backlinking activities

    I am confident you will see some change if you apply these tips.
