    Hi everyone,

    I'm wondering if you can help me:

    I've got a new site which has my keyword in the domain and title etc, but still has no PR and only a few backlinks etc. I've done my research in Market Samurai and the competition on page 1 for my keyword is big - the top 10 sites have 1000 to 100,000 backlinks to their page, PR from 2 to 6 and so on.

    My question is, what do you think it would take me to crack first page? I'm assuming I would need mostly backlinks once my onsite SEO is ok and at the moment I'm guessing at least 500 anchored backlinks will get me to around position 10 (as the competition site which has 1000 backlinks does not have them anchored like I will).

    I'm open to all suggestions and would really like some advice.

    How long do you think it would take? How many backlinks...? Anything else like directories etc?

    Thanks for your help!

    Yep, you'll need heaps of links.

    Firstly, get a good backlink checking tool and analyse all of the top sites and try and see where all their links are coming from. Then go out and try and get links from the same sources. Try and replicate their linking patterns.

    Aside from that, just diversify your links and go after all the usual suspects;

    - Articles
    - Web 2.0
    - Videos
    - Blog comments
    - Profile links
    - etc.

    As for time, it's difficult to say. Domain age does play a part in ranking so it could take a while..

    Don't worry about how long it takes, just be consistent in your efforts and keep going until you get there.
