    Hello everybody,

    I have found a keyword that I think has no competition. The number 1 ranking site in Google is a forum post of somebody asking a question on a site like (toms hardware). and not a single page in the top 10 has any URL backlinks. Most of the top 10 pages are not even optimized in on page SEO for the keyword and there are some really dinky sites in there.

    I created a new website with a great, original 1500 word article and did all the on page SEO but I am not ranking anywhere in google after 3 weeks.

    How would you guys rank a page for a keyword like this?

    Links to any simple tutorials for this would be awesome. I cant seem to find one that fits the purpose.

    I have Scrapebox by the way.

    Thanks you all. Your input is very appreciated. ;)

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    Try some soft gentle social bookmarking and social signals... nothing real hard since your site is just past placenta stage.

    You don;t have to do anything if you don;t have competition. If you cannot rank a keyword without competition tehre must be something wrong with your site.

    My hosting account for this site has another domain on it with some duplicate content. Do you think this might be why I am not ranking? If so is there anything I can do about it?

    If your on page optimization is rock solid, and there really is no competition, you really don't need to do anything at all. Just make sure your (assuming long tail) keyword exactly matches your title.

    I'd just use GSA. A lot of people think you can rank for terms like this with nothing but good on page SEO.

    But your're up against tomshardware... which is a very authoritative site compared to yours.

    So if it was me, I'd slowly drip feed GSA links and filter for high pr on your first tier.

    Then blast the first tier with a bit of spam and wallah. You should rank.

    I agree with you. I thinks a small 2k blast could do the job and rank the website

    If you found a keyword without any competition.. then you should have at least basic knowledge how a keyword ranking process looks like.. so how do you know it's a simple keyword? ;)

    Good on-page and a mini blast should take care of the job.

    you wrote a 1500 words article but there is another site with the same content??? I dont understand the point! Your content is original or not?? Are you sure that there is no competition on the keyword?? How many results google give on this keyword?? because it is strange that if you made good seo onpage after 3 weeks your site is not ranked. If you want I can analyze it just send me a PM, no warry I am not here to steal niches
    good luck

    Either it is not indexed yet, Your on page seo is off, or you site has poor quality, or you do not understand the competition.

    I bet you a nickle your seo is off.

    You need to scrape sme HIGH PR backlinks and if you have no competition it'll get ranked with Few Backlinks!

    If your site is new don't go for big blast. Just create 12 top web 2.0 site and point it to you money site that will help your site to rank for that low competition keyword

    simple just see whether your site is indexed or not..if it has not been indexed than how can it come to ranking..
    if it has been indexed it will come to ranking soon...try creating few backlinks
