    Is it a bad idea to scoop up a .NET of a company who was careless enough not to purchase it themselves, or as a beginner do I have no shot of competing with them for #1, Ive heard people say #2s dont pay nearly as good as #1s. Also should I avoid .NETs of a .COM that someone is already doing a Micro-Niche of, or if I can get ranked to #2 is it still a worthwhile investment?

    company names usually a bad idea since they may come after you for trademark infringement. Getting to #2 would likely bring you into their site and all your work would be down the drain.

    On the other hand you can make money from #2 position just not as much. I think it's like 23% of search traffic clicks on #2 spot but a really good call to action meta description can boost that up a bit

    So avoid companies, how do you feel about trying to compete with another niche site though?

    Could you point me in the right direction to a good thread on what you mean by call to action meta description?

    Absolutely compete with them. The only thing with a company name is the trademark thing.

    Google uses the meta description of your page to show in the search results page. If you don't have a meta description it simply pulls text from the page that contains the keyword. So by crafting a meta description that has a call to action can draw clicks on your link. For instance, if your site was about healing warts by home remedies.. You can put something like:

    Amazing new home remedy for removing warts you just add these household products and then apply them once per day and ...

    or something like that. It creates curiosity in the user and they are more likely to click on it rather than a generic description.
