    Hi friend:

    I've been trying to search for this, but I am not sure if I am using the right terminology. Say I find a keyword that I want to beat, and I'm using market samurai, and I see the top 10. The top results are authority websitse (I think that is what it is called), dexknows and yellowpages.

    This is how the top 10 looks.. most of the domains are 10+yrs old, all but one have a PR of 2 or lower, all have less than 100 back links to the page, and most don't have anything regarding the keywords in their title, url, etc.

    Now it looks good except for the amount of years of age of these domains and that the authority domains have millions of pages indexed on google. Their domains have a TON of backlinks, but the pages listed themselves have less than 100.

    Is it possible to rank for this? I don't know what is most important.. thanks friends.

    You can beat almost any domain for any keyword if you do it properly and got budget.. :)

    For your case domain age and domain authority is against you but you can beat them in all other aspects of SEO and promotion. One factor never decides ranking and it's combination of all. So work and you will get your ranking soon.

    Yeah they really don't have anything else. I was looking at their PR quality, all really bad back links. I think all they have going for them is the domain age and that's why the majority are ranking. I'm working on articles now for the site, maybe have this website live in the next day or two.

    Thanks for the input peeps.
