    Hi
    Im trying to figure out why its MUCH harder to rank websites in google for non internet marketing niches - even when the competition is less. Fir example im able to rank niches related to IM on page #1 on google (even top 3 results) but when it comes to other niches (like weight loss - im talking about a semi competitive keyword..) i find it MUCH MUCH harder to rank...


    ANYONE KNOW WHY?

    Thanks in advance

    weight loss is a highly competitive keyword, with over 227 million competitors.

    I always aim for keywords with atleast 20k exact search per month with little competition.

    TrafficTravis is a great tool and you can find the download somewhere in the forums.

    With IM you're competing mostly with pure garbage and spam. In weight loss you're dealing with real professionals who have budgets and know how to use them effectively.

    What Danny said. For example, if you're foolish to enough to step into the acai niche, you're going up against some of the biggest ballers on the entire internet. The guys from Deecash for example (a huge adult affiliate network that has bought up dozens of smaller players) were running a huge top down acai operation, from billing to product to traffic, and those guys quite probably have $100M a year to play with.

    Internet marketing on the other hand, apart from the top dogs in the space (those Syndicate idiots and their ilk), is mostly a bunch of small timers furiously trying to hawk shovels to gold diggers. There's also a large amount of keyword real estate and subniches you can get your hooks in to.

    This dont make much sense,i am able to rank on others niche fine.

    But i will guess that other niches has more older and estabilished sites and in IM the sites are more new..

    I think what they are saying upposed to the IM market which the first 10k results are mostly a bunch of small budget bum marketers trying to crawl where as the top pages are actual competition medium to high budget players which would result to easier ranking for the few who can get up there with the small percentage.

    Weight loss niche you're dancing with big budget fortune 500's who probably dont just have one seo expert but several maybe even in the double figures to work for them making them an authority site. In this case top positions probaly would be measured buy the size of your wallet an not your kno how, that sucks though makes it that much harder to devise an seo campaign to push up, when the odds are so heavily stacked against you.
