    [​IMG]I'm trying to build an amazon site.
    I been playing with market samurai the whole day, whenever I find an product that I want to promote, #1 always shows up as amazon.

    If I have exact match domain, can I beat amazon?

    Amazon's stats on my niche:
    domain age 12
    PR 2
    index count 139,000,000
    Backlink 9
    title N
    url N
    desc N
    head N

    How are is it to beat amazon in your opinion?

    Why do people always HAVE to beat the number one position. I think this is why most people don't even bother trying, they see the big boys at the top and just get too scared to go after it. #2, #3 and #4 can still be valuable spots and you're not JUST going to rank for ONE keyword, chances are your going to rank for keywords you didn't even know you would just straight from your article. Just go for it, give it your best and if it dosen't work come back, read some more and then go out again.

    You should not devote too much time on beating Amazon. Sometimes I make sale when I am page #2 of Google. People tend to read reviews on all the sites that are even in page 2-3. This happens a lot in physical products.

    Just concentrate on building quality back links, Good contents and continue to create new site : )

    hope that helps!

    if you have an actual site for a group of products (e.g. digital cameras) as opposed to a microsite targated at one single product, it is quite easy but naturally takes time to get #1. quality is what matters. if you have a great site with lots of information for a visitor you will not just eventually become #1, but your conversion will be much higher.

    technically speaking you beat amazon with a relatively small number of links if you have higher topicality (most if not all pages on your site about the same keyword family/subtree)

    Good post man. And very true.

    You will rank for keywords you never knew about and Google always will rank you for keywords as long as you keep posting articles.

    Yes - but it won't happen overnight. It take some effort and hard work to beat them.

    Depending on the no of backlinks to the specific Amazon page, then do I use it as a pretty good measure for competition. Because if they have the no 1 spot, then do I know pretty well, how much work it would take for me to get there.
