    I want to go for a very competitive keyword but I dont want to waste my time if it's manually reviewed.
    I have checked everybody on page 1 and nobody is doing anything that is obviously blackhat. either the sites are ranking naturally, or they are using very clean PBNs containing sites that look like real sites.

    How can I find out if this is manually reviewed? because I dont want to waste time ranking it just to have it taken away from me in a couple of days.

    Doesn't matter. Churn and burn sites make it to the top even for "viagra" and "payday loans", which are supposedly manually reviewed.

    if wikipedia ranks #1
    check if sites paying for adwords rank on page 1 with no backlinks.
    check if ranks are not changing for 2-3 months

    check if matt cutts have ever tweeted about it or ever blogger about it
    there are many things you should consider before starting a site.
