    Hello BHs

    I realize most of these threads are about ranking for typical affiliate keywords like weight loss etc.

    I was wondering how difficult it is to rank for a keyword where there is no / little SEO but the field is lead by high authority domains.

    One example "part time jobs melbourne". What do you think how hard it will be to rank for this keyword? As you can see on the first spots are job search engines, gumtree etc. They do have a lot of authority but rarely any backlinks to the ranking page.

    Hard or easy to rank on page one?

    You should check the keyword difficulty, but the truth is that, ranking for keywords like this, would take Months and proper seo. Keyword in Url might help a little, but just little. One thing is certain, ranking for Jobs vacancies is not easy, since these websites publish articles on an hourly basic.

    Goodluck, but you need to know, that everything is possible.!

    thanks. It is really hard to evaluate for me. On the one hand I see that they are high authority domains with lots of content. On the other hand I see that a lot of these sites do not even have the keyword in their URL or title tag. It seems to be a different game than the usual affiliate thing

    How about localizing it? If you can offer a physical presence and reach out to only local online/offline media - then you would wouldn't have to worry too much? Say I am in the USA - I'd probably reach my destination first without a huge general search for a role. Advertorials or paid may do well too? A defined geo location is easier to work with.

    I'd get the site up and running, maybe scrape, paid search, social, then a reach out.

    If your username is right, I presume you mean Melbourne, Victoria (Australia) rather than Melbourne, Florida (USA)?

    If so, that graphic is misleading...

    I've outranked Gumtree AU more times than I can count - so if it's high up in the SERPs, chances are you might go OK.

    If its just internal pages of authority domains, you have a decent change imo.

    Wait, how could you have seen the image I posted before if I just created it? :eek13:

    Anyway, I took a look at the keyword using Google.com.au and searched for it in the Google Keyword Planner with the filter set to Melbourne, Australia and the results are pretty similar to the image I posted above (except Gumtree is in the 1st position and the local keyword looks like it's a bit easier to rank for). I think tony_d provided you with a good answer on how hard it is to compete (of course, there are other facts such as your site's own authority that should be considered as well).

    thanks guys I will just try it. By the way I dont want to rank this keyword but a similar one in Germany. (I chose my misleading name by accident when I started because I was in a hurry and now everybody thinks I am from Australia. I even got offers for BH cooperation in Sidney and Melbourne two times :) )

    I Did a small research for you and i would say it falls under Medium Competitive level.
    I used UNF to validate it.

    The page authority of the keywords ranking is low.. Exact keyword is not found in any of the pages ranking for the keyword.. It should not be difficult to rank such keywords.. If you ask me I would say you can rank for this keyword without any backlinks.. Make sure your On-Site SEO is well optimized & Inter linking within the site..

    It is easy bro. You can rank it in 2-3 months. I can rank that keyword in yahoo and bing in 1 week.
