    I am building an Amazon Review site.
    I have about 25-30 articles up.

    I am targeting "Best Product" kws and also specific "Product Review kws".

    For the latter type of results, a majority of the results in the top 10 are actual e-commerce sites like Amazon, Ebay, Walmart and BestBuy and a few others.

    I read somewhere that for such keywords Google gives preference to e-commerce sites as people searching for it are usually looking to buy something. So showing an e-commerce site is more relevant.

    So my question is can I outrank these site? Has anyone done it before? If yes,how hard is it? is it worth the time?

    Thank you :)

    Yes, you can outrank these absolutely but over a period of time when your site gains authority. Google usually favours e-commerce sites when there is ambiguity-two word no intent searches, for example, "shoe horn"- best "product" reviews type of keywords can be ranked above these sites with good relevancy and authority.

    Also, you need to have a change in mindset, people looking for brands will go for brand search anyways. Those who need to search, more often than not, need additional level of convincing before they make that choice. Part of that convincing process is your titles and descriptions. Not all number one ranked sites get all the visitors (industry average is 61% but thats just an average over reams of data). If you have optimised titles and good descriptions, even if you cant out-do top authority site, you will bite a huge chunk of their traffic.

    Hope that helps

    You really need to go to school or do more research if your asking this.

    Not at all...
    I have sites outrank all of these sites with zero backlinks...with proper SEO and unique descriptions it's easily done. This greatly depends on your product or niche and it's competition.

    I am wondering if having a dedicated IP and SSL is what actually helps the ranking with ecommerce sites? Google says that sites with SSL certs would begin to carry a bit more weight.

    If your review site is for "best dumbbells for home", just to throw an example as I just finished with these a few hours ago - you shouldn't have issues outranking any of those sites as long as you've built good amount of authority. Be it EMD or non-EMD. If your primary keywords are "buy dumbbells" or the likes, you'll have more competition obviously, but you can still rank for it. Relevancy is important, if you're in doubt just add Amazon physical products references once you've determined that may be holding you from top 5 rankings or page 1 rankings. E.g; Adsense start up, scale with Amazon recommended products and the likes.

    One known trick to outrank the big e-commerce sites is by adding the current year to your post titles. For example instead of making a title like 'Best Product Keyword', make it like 'Best Product Keyword 2016'. If your on page SEO is right, you will rank for these keywords.
