    So the keyword I am aiming for is "____ cheats" where the _____ is a name of a game that was just released.

    I snagged the domain ___cheats.com

    When doing the exact search for the phrase

    There are no sites with the keyword in the domain , but there are a lot of cheat database websites

    such as gamefaqs, cheatcc, etc.

    Would it still be possible to outrank these archive sites? Thanks!

    if you just got the domain it might be a bitch to try and outrank all those large, old sites. There's no harm in trying, but it'll take a while until you reach front page. Your best bet would be to try sending other type of traffic to that site. If you're doing games, forums are a great place to pull some serious traffic from.

    Thanks, I just got the domain, the game is a new release but not so popular :)

    Thanks! I'll write a few articles on it, then spin and submit to some directories, post on forums, and to social networking, and youtube of course! Hope that'll bump it up :)

    It pretty easy for you to reach page 1 with little backlinks since you have exact keyword domain. To reach #1, you have do the build backlinks regularly and make sure you optimize the site with the target keyword properly like keywords in page title, page description, post title, post description e.t.c..

    I would say you can definitely rank pretty high. Like they said, it may be tough to outrank a few of the high powered sites, but it's doable.

    Give it a go, for sure!
