    Hey Guys,
    Is it possible to out rank shopping sites like ebay, amazon, flipkart, snapdeal from 1st page of Google as none of them having my keywords in title or in url.

    Which is the best tool to have the insights of analyzing the competition ??

    Yes it is. I have seen niche sites above those big ecom sites for terms mostly dominated by the big guys.

    I think the important thing is having the right content to compete and yes, depends on metrics as well.

    Check PA/DA/back links etc. And optimiztion of the pages that are there of course. Also are there any other smaller niche sites in the top 10/20?

    Absolutely. They end up there on default because of their domain authority, but as you can imagine, a site like Amazon or Ebay isn't gonna build links to every individual page or product, but you can do that on your site.

    Yes, but you better check out for e-commerce lean , which means top 10 website is all e-commerce or most of it is e-commerce. This is also where all keyword research tools fall short. Unless the meaning of the title of top 10 competition is totally different, which will mean a no competition keyword. Skip the keyword.
    Yes, you can definitely outrank them, but it is not so called easy keywords at any means if it is e-commerce leaned

    Definitely! You just need a sound strategy and a great team behind it. For analyzing things I like to use SEMrush and a couple other manual tactics.

    It is possible. In fact, I have seen very many people learning on how the ranking algorithm work and thereafter being able to scale their websites to the first page. SEO is something very dynamic and when you do not keep to the requirements and the changing trends, it is possible that you will rank lower. There are very many spy tools to help you out.

    Beating an ecommerce or shopping website is not a job for boys. Because if it's a strong keyword, you'll guess right that most niche websites have come and go, but these shopping websites have been there. You need to structure your website and build authority links.

    BUT is outranking shopping websites possible?
    YES, extremely possible.

    Like others say, it's absolutely possible. I'm using ahrefs, seoquake and keyword planner to help me analyse my top 10 competitors.
