Hello all. After cashing in Facebook I decided to go more whitehat and do some blogging. I love time-consuming things, so I decided to make a blog about one of my interests. After some keyword searches I found 2 lines : "3 keywords" and "3 keywords". Both in the same niche, different keywords. One has a Monthly Search of almost 7k, one has a MS of 15K. First one has a pay-out of 30 cents, other one has a payout of 1.0 (in euros). So 2 pretty decent keywords. Competition? Almost none. But here is where my question comes in: The first ranked in 1 has close to 10 backlinks to the article. It is a decent site with about 400 backlinks in total to the http://url.com/ Should I look to the 10 backlinks, or to the 400, to rank first on this niche? I'm sorry to ask this and feel kinda noob, but I don't know the answer. Would appreciate if someone could help me, or give me a guide to read all about backlinks. Thanks in advance! Dropdown.
