    I have been doing keyword research for about 4 weeks now and have found a lot of low comp + high search + CPC keywords. Here's my question though:
    When Wikipedia is on position nr 1 on a keyword is this always a good keyword to get the nr 1 spot?

    Wikipedia gives good information, but ussually does not have that much BLs to its page from other websites. Also Wikipedia does not give reviews or product explanation to products related with that keyword. So would it always be a "go for that keyword" or "stay off"?

    If you don't get it, I'll rephrase it. I'm quite tired and my English sucks when I'm tired.

    Wikipedia is the authority site, so its always difficult to outrank it.

    Depending on the type of keyword though people may not click Wiki as they want a review or to purchase etc. So being #2 behind Wiki may not be a problem.

    it's a good sign if they don't have a lot of incoming links to the page. Usually means that you can overtake them.

    Never listen to those assholes. If such a big brand is ahead of you (amazon, imdb, ebay, wikipedia), of course it is easy to outrank them.

    BUT, if there are some exact match domains and ..... anyway. Get some free semrush accounts. See yourself.

    If there are some domains residing with their homepage (not inner pages like wikipedia or amozon,) then it is not easy to outrank them. That is the formula. (of course do not forget backlinks, domain age etc.)

    Correct me if I am wrong but most of the sites target words with inner pages. Why do you give so much value to the homepage itself?
