    When checking SEO Competition for a keyword, what should be the main things to look at to determine whether or not I can get on the first page or possibly the #1 spot on Google?

    Should I be looking at how many Page Backlinks they have?

    I would look at how many authority sites there are, their pagerank, backlinks, how old the domains are, if there are any young domains, keyword in title/url/header/description, if they have .edu or .gov backlinks, if there are any youtube/ezine sites.....

    pretty much everything that is listed in MS

    In which case, look at how much green there is... the more green, the better :)
