    After doing some seo work last few months I am now on first page of google for 2 diff keywords and at the top of page 2 for another keyword. Now what should I do to start outranking the top sites on page 1 so that I claim the #1 spot?

    i have each keyword "" in the title tags and none of the other sites on page 1 have the keyword "" in title tags

    This is a very, very general question. The best way is to match the strength of the top ranked competitors. Sometimes, it can be very frustrating as you might see a site with few back links never giving up the number 1 spot.

    That would probably be because the domain has a lot of trust rank in the eyes of Google.

    Look at this example. There are so many people competing for the acai berry keyword. If a big medical website like webmd.com or ehealth.com were to create a supplemental page on acai berry and do some basic SEO like back links etc, they are just going to jump to number 1 beating all the webmasters who have thousands of back links.

    But, in most cases, sites like these do not do it for commercial reasons and will just write an article and leave it as it is. Sending just one or two back links to pages like that can push it up to the top 3. This usually happens naturally when someone links to sites like these on their blog. That is true and natural back linking that will probably never happen with your affiliate site.

    You just have to work in niches where big player authority sites do not have a big presence. If they are there, it is not impossible to beat them, but it is also very difficult at the same time.

    You just have to keep building backlinks and link to other authority sites in your niche.

    Diversify your backlinks. Also, I have heard that click stream on organic results help to get good rankings.

    this has been said quite often, but if you are going after really generic big terms, those are the ones that get manually reviewed by editors.. so you have to build a reputation first before you gain those sweet spots

    Man, I hate that! There are usually so many high PR sites linking to these that it becomes next to impossible to beat them & the most irritating part is that the more these sites stay on the first page, the more people keep linking to them as a reference.

    1. keep doing what you are doing to get to page one
    2. add some nitro fuel into the mix. build some mini nets with some super high authority sites. Take the time to make your content ultra unique and the structure completely different than your main structure. This is what I do for an extra kick. Throw in a grenade to finish the job.

    1. add articles regularly in your site.
    2. build back links
    3. do directory submission

    Where it is written that e-commerce site can't have content or can't get backlinks...

    Content - You can add user review for your product (either pay some one to do or do it on own)...

    Backlinks & Directory Submission: lots of other promotion can be done to get more exposure...

    I liked rocket's post best and he gave you best advice... Keep doing what ever you are doing and put some twist...

    i have reviews and a few articles i wrote myself pertaining to the niche i sell my product in.

    can i also add PLR articles that Ive downloaded from blackhatworld to my site for that niche?? or is that copyright infringement (i downloaded them from here as opposed to buying them from the original writer)

    You just need to keep building backlinks. Simple as that.

    Honestly though, if its a big keyword, you need to outsource and start looking at services that you can get, theres a lot on BHW to check out.

    making sure your target keyword phrase has a shared density with content through-out your entire website.
