    I have found a nice juicy keyword with little competition and a nice amount of searches per month. The thing im worried about is, it's a keyword with a brand in, say for example toshiba televisions, the toshiba company website is at number one and only has 11 back links. It's not actually their domain thats at number one, it's their about page

    Exactl phrase match is 29,000. I have managed to get the .info domain name with this keyword in it, now what i am thinking about doing is running wordpress and doing a sort of review style site pushing amazon products

    Could i out rank the main company website in google or is it not worth bothering?

    Thanks

    You can always be second... And yes, should be pretty easy to outrank the first result.

    Did you check the other results? They may have more backlinks and authority than you think. You say the first result only has 11 backlinks. That's hard to believe for a brand that gets 30,000 exact searches / month. What's the page rank and the number of backlinks for the brand's domain name? I'm guessing it is pretty high and there's probably a link to the "about us" page on every single page of the website. That's a lot of link juice ;)

    Just do your research before spending time trying to do something that may not be worth the effort :)

    PR3 the domain has and the about page which has 11 back links sits at number one. There main domain is number two and has 2733 back links. Still possible to beat?

    In my competitor's mind
    If they have a healthy linkwheel with several spokes, it'll be hard to find where their link juice is coming from. Also, you'll have to do some extra work to find their deep linking.

    Most of their backlinks come from auction listings on ebid.com hmm
