    Hey guys,

    I've been working on Micro Niches for a while now and Monetizing it through CPA. I've got a question with regards to SEO and the possibility of Ranking #1 and how long will it take to get there.

    I came across a couple of Keywords that have a decent Search Volume per day and a very low Competition (we're talking about 5,000 to 10,000 Competing Web Pages for that Phrase Match Keywords).

    Personally to me, I think that the Keywords are great but when I started drilling down by doing SEO Competitive Analysis via Market Samurai, I noticed that half of the Top 10 Websites have a PageRank of 3-6. The thing is that their Web Page in particular that is ranking for the Keyword that I'm wanting to go for, has a PageRank of 0-1. Will I be able to Outrank them and get #1 on Google despite them having a High PageRank?

    I'm not concerned about BackLinks because they all have less than 200 BackLinks which isn't a whole lot of deal for my SEO guy. A few of them also do have the Keywords in their Title, Description and Content.

    I hope that someone can help me out here as I'm about to get a Domain Name soon. Thank you so much for your time reading this. I Appreciate you.

    Alexa rankings are independent of Google's own rankings. You should check in Google manually for queries related to your industry. The better metric, I would say, would be to ask for traffic & conversion stats from a reliable web analytics program like Google Analytics.

    Also, while there is absolutely no guarantee if any rankings stay in Google or not, if you buy a site & retain the content of that site, and the backlinks also stay there, then usually the rankings also stay.

    LOL i am wondering same as OP...

    Anyway OP you can always outrank others in any niche. Ranking in search engines are not based on any single factor, it includes several like age, backlinks, domain authority, domain PR, page PR, outgoing backlinks, connection from relevant network or sites, visitors behavior on site, SEO optimization, bad neighborhood.... blah blah

    So even if you lack on one front, you can suffix it by improving on other fronts. Hope it clears your confusion.

    Google is starting to penalize mfa sites. I find it harder and harder to get MFA sites to beat past these 0-1 pr pages. Even though the pr of the pages is low, google rewards authority sites with a lot of content

    Every one of us wants to rank high in Google. So...Just you must focus on backlink building. But backlink building has to be done with great care !!!

    Yes, You can outrank old sites with high pr with only backlinks.
    Otherwise it would not be a good search engine....
    Imagine that a new hype occurs on some keywords, do you think G will not show it because it's a new hype and a new domain?
