    Hi there people. Would love to hear your views on how hard to rank for certain keywords for the following site- eurefrigeratedtransport. The keywords we want to rank highly for would be
    Refrigerated transport
    Temperature Controlled transport
    Haulage companies kent
    temperature controlled courier uk
    Any other decent search phrases based around the above. This site is for a small to medium sized UK haulage company. They serve the whole of the uk + Europe with temperature controlled and refrigerated vans. As well as a general haulage side of the company which can deal with full articulated lorry loads.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction to get ranking high for these keywords ? Backlincking ? Blog commenting ? Forum Posting ? anything else ?

    If you're asking how difficult, then it's over your head.

    It's relative. Those keywords aren't particularly difficult but it depends what you are comparing them to

    + Article Links and Wiki Pages and Press Releases and Directory Submissions and....

    Essentially, if you're going to rank for anything - regardless of difficulty - you're going to need diversity on your side. Diversity in your link profile will not only get your site to an authority status quicker, but it'll make it that much harder for competitors to trump you later on down the track.

    Also - it mightn't be a big deal but, personally speaking, I'd refrain from posting ANY keywords out in the open for prying eyes to see. This BHW 'community' isn't always full of sunshine and rainbows. If those keywords were any good (and honestly, I haven't even bothered to check them so I wouldn't know,) even I would have considered stealing them, building my own website faster than you and using additional experience and resources to rank it quicker, leaving you with nothing but a bad BHW story to tell and an idea that went wanting - and I'm one of the nice guys.

    In the world of SEO - especially on forums - less is more; don't share any personal information / unique, creative ideas and niches that you haven't been paid to.

    Best of luck to you.

    Most of your keywords are relatively easy. If you do a good on and off page SEO you should be ranking within 40 to 60 days of back linking. John
