Hi BHW. It's been some time since I started watching this forum an you guys post a lot of interesting stuff here. I'm trying methods, without results yet, but I'm patient. However, I want to start a small business with some friends and see if it's going . I'm talking about a niche online store targeting only my country. I've searched for the most used keywords in this niche and the numbers are pretty good. 3 different keywords: 1st - 14k search/month 2nd - 10k 3rd - 3k All of these keyworks are the main keywords in this niche. Now, I looked for competition and here is where I'm getting scared. 1st google result: this guys is blasting the sht out of everything. he has like 33k backlinks and all the main keywords well optimized. domain age is 2 years and 9 months. around 25k indexed urls 2nd result: is a website that no longer exists. 8 months age. 5k backlinks. 3rd result: ~100k backlinks, but seems like on page seo it's pretty lame, so even if he has 100k backlinks he's still low and i assume those backlinks are also not built on the niche keyworks. last google result on 1st page: 1 year 8 months old, almost no backlinks , 77k pages indexed. SO, bottom line. Do I have any chances to make it to the 1st page? I'll be thankful for any advice. Keep it real!
