    Hey all so I have been reading the forum for the past few weeks and learning a ton. So here is the scoop: I want to rank on the 1st page on google with a two keyword phrase. Currently I am using mykeyword(anotherrelatedword).com. However mykeyword.net is available and so is my-keyword.com. I'm leaning toward getting mykeyword.net and using that what do you think? This is a site that I don't want to get banned by google and it is a long term project so it will be mostly white hat maybe grey hat stuff. Anyways how hard do you think it will be to rank for this? I have attached a photo of the market samurai analysis. Note: None of the sites have the keyword in the url and about half are unrelated.

    Thanks I really appreciate it.

    Yes, you can most definitely rank for this keyword. The pages that are seo optimized for this keyword have no more than 8 backlinks.

    Thanks everyone for helping a noob out. I will try and contribute to the forum in the future, starting with a journal of my journey from noob to #1 lol. To MisterTwister: Yeah I'm doing that now thanks.

    So I guess I have two questions left.

    1. Which url should I be using? I would repost the possibilities but its not letting me? Please check the original post for the 3 options.

    Pro and cons: the three keyword one is about a year old and is PR3. I don't know how its PR3 since it gets maybe 25-50 hits a day and most of that is direct traffic. I think it maybe be because I have my PR5 youtube channel linking to it. So I don't mind switching if its more beneficial in the long run but I am unsure about this. Also two keywords may look more professional? I'm trying to build a brand and the 2 keywords is the brand name.


    2. About building backlinks: as jiggsaw said there are very few backlinks for the top 11 except for 4 but they arent even seo optimized. How should I go about gaining these links? I don't want to get blacklisted by google. Should I try do forum comments from blogs related to my niche or something else? I am a bit confused on this because most of the advice on this forum is for Blackhat techniques for backlinks but this is more of a long term thing.

    Thanks everyone.

    oi oi oi ;]

    you def can get there, I find myself that it usually takes around 2-3 months using whitehat methods and backlinking to find the site i'm working on ranking on 1st or 2nd page of google for my keyword.

    should be a piece of piss. just get an exact match domain name or something close to it and a few quality back links and you should be laughing all the way to the bank

    I use Market Samurai and I can tell you from experience you should be able to rank in the top 10 w/ your main keyword within a month or two -- and that's w/ normal, white hat backlinking. You have 6 sites that have almost no backlinks to the page -- that is a key indicator and one of my staples. Even the site w/ 168 backlinks is no big deal. Getting 168 backlinks is not hard to do. Yes, you most assuredly can get in the top 10 of Google w/ that keyword.

    Good luck.
