    Atm I am promoting electronic product for amazon associates. I am ranking on the 20th position for the keyword "companyname productcategory" for example, "Toshiba Television". I am not promoting tvs but I decided to use it as example. I am also ranking for "buy companyname productcategory" on the 10th position. The problem I am facing is, amazon is on the first page and then its the company themself. Other than that I just have 1-2 other website which I can attempt to out rank.

    My Question is: Would it be possible to rank high enough (higher than amazon) for this particular product? And if so can you rank high enough to even beat the company (I doubt this)

    It is very easy to rank ahead of Amazon on any product. Also, it is possible to rank of head manufacturers home pages.

    This company is pretty popular 300k + Exact searches for "company" as keyword and 30k + Exact for "company productcategory" and they only sell this productcategory items (for example just televisions) nothing else.

    Everything is possible with enough backlinks really, it all depends on the backlinks.

    One of my blogs on a laser targeted keyword jumps from
    the #1 to #2 and back all the time. Sometimes I outrank
    the vendor and sometimes they take back the #1. So funny.
