    No offense, but I do not understand what the fuck is going on right now =)

    So I chose a kick ass keyword consisting of 2 words - quite easy MS stats, 1.4k exact matches, $2 CPC

    I end up buying the domain "buy+domain.com"

    I've then started some link building. Right now just for my domain, and not for my inner pages.

    YSE showing 59 backlinks (I know, not a great deal, but compared to competition it's alright). It seems like my site is doing some dancing and it's on page 25 for my main keyword. Considering the competition, I hope it's just dancing. I then go to Google Keyword tool and enter my URL to see which keywords it thinks is relevant for my domain. My main keyword does not even appear, but I check my ranking for the "most relevant" keyword - Page 3..

    Okay - second most relevant keyword: page 7 and it's broader than my main keyword.

    I think my subpage of my main article was indexed before my domain, so I'm wondering if it will help to change the URL of the subpage, so google can realise it should not consider my homepage dupe content.

    I am on the first spot for "buy keyword" without "s.. Has anyone had any similar experiences? Patience is not my strong side =)

    Yes I've had this happen. Not a big deal. Over time the results should work themselves out. I would backlink some internal pages and make sure you have good on site SEO. Sprinkle some content links that point back to your home page from internal pages.

    Backlink everything. People make the mistake of only backlinking their homepage. You can drive up the trust/authority on your site if you have multiple pages of content and links pointing to it.
