    Is it possible to rank on top for a very competitive keyword like 'how to lose weight' in 3months?

    Cause i see this site that is now on #1.

    It is barely 3mths old but on top. Can it sustain it's position with consistent SEO? Or is it an almost sure thing to drop with Google dance?

    Anything is possible but for a keyword like that you are either going to have to have a nice bankroll or an establish network backing you up already. Chances are whatever is ranking #1 is coming from some big parent site so they have quite the head start. There is still a few keywords left in that niche with low competition. Focus on those.

    Possible, yes. It will take a good amount of high quality backlinks though.

    There are good chances that the site in question has a very good number of high PR backlinks.

    Anything is possible, mate.

    Except for this. Haha.

    Okay, so that might not be entirely true but you should look beyond the stock standard niche markets. Every man and his dog are attacking the 'Iphone/Technology/Make Money Online/Lose Weight Fast' niche markets.

    If you're going to make a bit of coin in Internet Marketing then you need to open your mind up a little bit. I wish I knew which BHW member said it but recently I heard someone say, (and I'm paraphrasing here,) "No one wants your stupid viagra pills!"

    Think outside the box and look a little further than 3 inches in front of your face when it comes to selecting a niche. You'll gain greater experience from it in terms of coming up with fresh ideas and you also won't find yourself throwing in the towel in 3 months when you can't rank an uber competitive keyword.

    Give it a bit of thought and try selecting something else. That'd be my suggestion to you.

    Tks for the advice.

    However that was not what i'm asking. I'm just asking what you guys know about google ranking and its behaviour. I've been studying and wondering if this site howtoloseweightfastb can actually maintain its position being only 3mths old.

    I've been in the SEO game for some time now and Imho, 3 months is possible but I wouldn't count on it.. 3-6months is a better time frame to work on, depending on the competitiveness of the keyword. Good onpage SEO is just as important as Offpage SEO.. so u need to ensure u have covered all basis on that and more importantly QUALITY CONTENT! You have to add value to your visitor, they searched for something and what info on that so the more value you add the better conversions you will get.

    I would say Top 5 is very possible in 3months but depends how much budget you have. The more you have to spend on quality services the faster you will rank. I have just started SEO for a very competitive keyword which the spend is at $600 - 7 days in and already on Page 5 for the most competitive keyword. I am targeting 6-7 other keywords which are all sitting on page 1-3 now which are also quite competitive keywords.

    One of the most important factors I have found is to have your keyword in your domain name. If you do not have your keyword in your domain its going to make it a lot slower process to rank.

    unlikely.. go for the long tail related keywords first, and get some traffic.. then work your way up. You could do it in 6 months but you will need some serious link juice.

    Yes it is possible, everything is possible, it is only depends on your will and knowledge and / or money. A lot of my clients want to be the first to the target keyword, sure they dont know how difficult is at some very hard keyword.

    I always think about> How much money has been spent or flow out at the past or countinously to have the rank 1/2/3 for those site which are one currently on those positions, because in common whos are in the top want to hold the position because it is profitable - if you do it cheaper and faster - then will be a profitable project, if not: go to long tails and when you see the money or oportunity go deeper into the project.

    But i think everything is depends on the will and time if this project is your:
    ect, i now ranked a site to 22th position for free blog - keyword from 250 usd (2 year old domain the domain dont have any exact match and past seo done...)

    so everything is possible...

    sorry for the bad english

    Yes, yes you can.

    Here is what you have to have in mind:

    Budget: How much are you willing to pay to achieve this. This step is to prevent yourself from going on a spending frenzy, buying backlinks here and there in a desperate attempt to move up the serps. Bankruptcy happens this way.
    Time: How many hours/day are you willing to work on this?
    Resources: Do not start anything without the proper knowledge base to back you up. Luckily for you, you are now f5-ing the best resource online.

    So look at yourself in the mirror; if you see a winner and if you see yourself ranking at the top - go aheand a give a middle finger to anyone who sais you can't do it and DO IT!

    If you don't, however, and see yourself crying in about an hour because you realized that the competition is too big and your tummy hurts - for the love of God, get back to 0,10 cents/day or your 9 to 5 day job..

    Its up to you, really.

    If you don't have money to invest - start small and free and gain some capital (CB, PPC, PPA Adsense + a free blog)

    If you don't have time to invest - slap yourself and make some, because this will be the best time you've ever spent.

    Now go on, and get that god damn #1 and some god damn money!

    Peace out.
