    Is it possible to rank higher in Google/ Yahoo/ Bing etc than the actual site of the game I have a website about?

    So say it's for Tetris, could you rank higher than the actual Tetris website?

    why not? But for that you have to work very hard. Actual tetris website must be very old site and have a huge natural backlinks. You have to analyze each and every backlinks of that site and build your own backlinks but don't even think about copying contents of the actual site or copying backlinks of actual site.

    To beat a authority site, your site needs some age and quality backlinks. Create a backlink profile according to your competitor site that will slowly do it.

    Maybe but after the Penguin I doubt it ... Google fully stated themselves that sites dominating in their niche or the authority in their niche will always rank at the top. So, just like you can't surpass Apple's website for terms like iPhone or iPad, I doubt you'll be able to beat Tetris for the #1 spot, at least not without a lot of hard work. What you can do however is get in on the first page in the 2nd or 3rd spot and have a catchy page title that will attract people to click your website instead of the official one.

    It wouldn't be for Tetris that was just an idea.

    Thanks for your input though, looks like I've got some research to do!

    It's unlikely that you'll succeed but if the keyword is good being #2 or #3 might still be worth doing.
