    Hey
    I'm learning more and more every day, but what i just cant grip is how the competition for keywords work

    Lets take the KW anxiety medication for example..

    The top hits are high PR sites with extreme amount of backlinks

    If i started a fresh site with the domain anxietymedication.com or similar, will I even have chance competing for the first spot?

    Your domain wouldn't have any authority to start out with. You'd need high page authority back links to rise in SERP's.

    I can't imagine the example of "anxiety medication" being a low-medium competition keyword, so it wouldn't be easy rank for anyways right off the get go.

    But what are the things i should look after?

    If the #1 has millions of domain links but almost zero links to the url itself, how should i interpret that?

    Lets say wikipedia tops my keyword, how easy is it to beat?
