    My keyword is the product and some other word variation.
    most have keywords in Title,Desc and H1 tag.

    This is my first time making a website.Im using WP with Seopresser and AllinOne plugin.Currently I have 15 backlinks.Im also using scrapebox to blast my articles and web 2.0 blogs.

    Will it be very hard to rank for my keyword?

    is your domain name contain the keywords? how old is your domain.

    there is no one answer to your question, what is hard to you can be easy to me..

    it is also stand on your content, is it unique, do you have more pages then the other Top rankers?

    try to make more quality content and start to build backlinks from high PR 15 backlinks is nothing.. you will need around 3k live quality backlinks.

    good luck

    Yes my domain name contain the keyword which itself is the product im promoting.Domain is 1 month old.I know it takes time but being completely new to this Im second guessing my ability to rank for this keyword.Should I increase more pages and do some deep linking as well?

    Am I right to say if my domain has the keyword in it,I can beat the youtube sites and article directories sites?For example a competitior with url :XXXXX/keyword is easier to outrank than url:keyword+other words?

    Content is unique.No cut paste job.Right now im not ranking in the top 1000 which is understandable.Funny thing is I can see the top 10 changing position every few hours.Now there's yooutube videos appearing in the top 10.Talk about Google dance.

    check the BST section for backlinks service.. use google adwords keyword research tool to estimate how hard is your keywords. (high,low?) then you will understand better what do you need to do..

    good luck

    Nothing is unbeatable in Google. What it really all comes down to is how long your willing to wait to see results.

    The harder the competition level the longer it will take you to see results unless you learn all the shortcuts that you can take to help boost your rankings.

    One of those shortcuts is having the EMD (exact match domain) url. This helps you get a leg up but is by no means an iron clad way of never getting beat.

    It really all comes back to backlinks and quality content. Keep doing what your doing and you will rise in a month or two to number 1.

    You said the number one spot if fluctuating. This is good because it shows the market is possibly strong for those keywords.

    Unless you plan on keeping up the BH methods I would mix in some white hat methods as well to keep you in the #1 spot....maybe some article marketing to the homepage and inner pages, leaving relevant comments on related blogs, etc and also keep pumping out the BH methods as well.

    BH will get your fast but WH will keep you there.
