    My current keyword on the page that I am going to try to rank for isn't in the domain name but it will be in the title of the page is it possible to ever beat out a site that has the keyword in the domain & page title or is there just not enough links in the world that would out rank that site?

    You can absolutely beat it even though you don't have the keyword in the domain. I have done it several times. Its just a little advantage they have.

    IDK how vallento can make that claim since other factors play a role when ranking.

    To start off with how many competing pages are there for your keyword?

    How long has the people with the keyword in their URL been around and roughly how many BLD and BLP do they have?

    Depending on your overall Comp and What the other competitors are doing ESP the ones with they keyword in their domain. you may outrank you may not.

    To get around this....whatever your keyword is you can just add another word to it and get a .com or .org or whatever and that is a way to bypass of having your keyword in your url...ESP. if your comp and other comp has bought up all the exact match keywords domains.

    So adding the extra word or a hyphen etc.... combined with a QUALITY Backlinking Campaign you would prolly be able to outrank them then.

    The term in how long it would take to outrank them depends on how much comp. you have

    I agree with craigslistguy... There are several things that determine whether you can out rank a competitor with the keyword in their url. The amount of competition mainly....

    But the bottom line is that it can be done!

    I would suggest finding an aged domain name that has that keyword within the name (ie.instead of xxx.keyword.com find an aged domain like xxx.bigredkeyword.com)..You can use the age of that domain to your advantage and also build links much quicker with less risk of being slapped by google....

    it is allways an advantege to have keyword in url but you can toprank anyway, just take alittle more work...think of one thing, many backlinks does not allways put you on top, it has to do with visits aswell...
