global clicks per month: 1.5 million This is a very short and high competition keyword, 2 words. I am simply curious if it would be possible to rank in the top ten. All the sites listed have very little unique content (like a funnyquotes site which uses rss feeds) and my site would have mostly 100% unique content. I have a lot of time on my hands for the next few months now that I have quit my seasonal day job. If I were to spend 4-8 hours a day trying to rank this site (mine has the 2 keywords in the domain + 1 extra irrelevant keyword) using strong social signals along with a quality backlinking campaign, would I be able to see myself breaking into the top 10? Or would this be an epic waste of time... And I would not monetize with adsense but rather selling a product of mine that has very much to do with the keyword. Your input is appreciated, and I'm more curious then serious about this so play nice!
