Hi guys, some of you may have noticed it - I have opened quite a lot of threads in the past couple of weeks. Reason for this is I am highly motivated and I have so many questions about so many things. Even though I'm very motivated I haven't taken action, yet. And this bugs me. The reason for not taking action is quite simple, but unneccessary to mention. I am here, because I told myself I'll open one last thread about a method I thought of and if it isn't a complete disaster I won't open another one, I won't post or visit this forum again, unless I have taken action. So, here's my idea and I'd like you guys to tell me whether or not this is a good idea. I'm going to create a couple of small review blogs for products. The quality of the reviews is going to be exceptionally good and will be written in my language (I'm quite skilled writing in my own language). Instead of targetting broad and very popular niches I will only target small niches (1k-3k exact searches/month) to avoid heavy competition, because I'm no pro at SEO. My products are still going to be popular within this niche. The KWs and products I'll target will be researched using AdWords KW Planer. If my KWs have 1-3k exact searches and a medium/high competition I will take the next step and check my competition. I was going to do that by using SEOquake and simply check the PRs and age of the Top 10 domains showing up for my exact KW search. Questions: This idea is pretty basic, but am I already missing something or is the way I was going to approach this flawed? Competition: What exactly would you consider a weak/medium/high competition? I have an example for one of my KWs: (PRs in Top10: n/a, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, n/a, 0, 0) I'd consider this a weak competition. Am I guessing correctly? Competition: Sometimes when checking the competition there are forum posts of a very popular and well known forum ranking for #1, or #2 and SEOquake tells me its PR is 4-6. When competing against other websites, is it the PR of their main website (e.g. www.popularforum.com) that is shown or is it the PR of the exact forum post (e.g. popularforum.com/recipes/cake/delicious_cake_recipe.html)? Or in other words, if a forum post from an aged and very popular forum is ranking #1, or #2, is it possible to outrank them? When ranking for my KW am I competing against the forum post or the forum itself? And if so, how hard/easy is it to outrank those? Competition: Same questions as 3., but for YT videos. Found a niche with a YT video ranking on #3 and one on #7. Both have less than 20k views, but the shown PRs are 3 and 4. Easy to outrank, or quite hard? SEO: Are there any basic SEO steps I should consider taking in order to rank my websites? I am looking for a plan or sort of a method that I can repeat for every single website and is a guarantee for #1 for weak/weak-medium competition. If there's a service sold, or a SEO 101 thread I'd take that as an answer. Unfortunately I haven't found a thread like this and since I'm a complete SEO noob I don't know which services are worth their money and compatible with my method I really hope for some good answers, since I finally want to get started on my journey. Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys.
