So I'm just working on some SEO using a new technique for finding KW and ranking.. The main keyword I'm using has the following data: Searches Per Month: 2900 Results with "keyword" in google: 320,000 'Real' competing pages - (According to Stealth Keyword Analyzer): 433 Average PR of competing sites: 1.2 Results with intitle:"keyword": 143,000 Results with inurl:"keyword" 134,000 Results with both inurl and intitle: 128,000 ----------------- My site has tons of unique content, decent on page SEO and is a few days old. Personally I think it is better and has more relevent and useful content than the other sites that are currently there. Competitor Analysis: According to SEO Spyglass: My top competitor has 135 backlinks, non of them are higher than PR7 and most are PR1-4 or no PR at all. ---------------- I would really appreciate your thoughts on a keyword with these stats. How long do you think it will take me to rank Number 1? How hard do you think it will be? Are there any other stats or information I should collect that will help me analyze the keyword and its competition further? Really appreciate the feedback, this is my first run at the SEO side of internet marketing, before this it's been all Adwords and Emailing lists, fruitful but I feel it's time to move on.. I've been researching and reading about SEO for years now so I hope the knowledge I've collected will work when put to the test. My SEO technique is a mixture of web2.0 properties pointed to money site with various other tiers below pointing at the web2.0 also pinging and bookmarking as I go.. I haven't started yet btw - just finished the money site. EDIT: I can run a case study if you guys want and tell you how long it takes and what my method was..?
