    Okay, basically I've pretty much just uploaded a site on monday. Now this site is ultra low competitive like I mean it's retarded. Just to give you an idea, as soon as I indexed I was 16th on google search engines with just good on page seo and no backlinks.

    So now I'm starting to do external backlinks and honestly I really wont need much to hit into the top ten. I already have more backlinks than a lot of the sites, but I know that Google doesn't just boost your spot instantly. Has anyone tested to see the turn around time on google updating me to where I actually belong?

    Also theres a site called super pages that is above me, and there is no way to compete with them ( not really worth it ). Super Pages is #1 but do I really need to get 17 mil backlinks to beat them?

    I bought an exact match domain for a similarly low competition keyword. I was literally number #6 within a couple days of being indexed. I built maybe 5 manual backlinks, no automated methods or programs used and bounced between 1 and 3 within another week. This was in December and I got about $30 in Amazon commissions around Christmas, but there was nearly no traffic after that (guess that is what you get for such a low competition keyword).

    Funny thing is my site completely dropped to 700-800 for all its keywords about a week ago. I also noticed that a Google search now yields over 1 Million results, where it had under 200,000 when I bought the domain less than 5 months ago.

    I still have done no backlinking, I'm guessing I got hit by the Google update but the whole number of results things kind of baffles me. The moral of the story - for such a low competition keyword, build links slowly and steadily and you'll be in the top 5 before you know it.

    When it comes to comparing yourself to competitors, the page backlinks are much more important that domain backlinks, so no you wouldn't need anywhere near 17 Million to pass SuperPages, haha. However their domain authority and trust is much greater than yours so you will need a few good links sprinkled in.
