    i want to do a test since i run an ice cream shop myself. I am currently on page 5 and want to rank for the term 'ice cream'

    how hard do you think it is? its a pretty generic term.

    You are going to need at least 3k+ backlinks.

    Do you run an online ice cream webshop? ;)

    There is no use for you to rank on such a generic term. Try to find a local kw instead to get more nisched customers, that´s my suggestion.

    Exactly - just go for "Ice cream "your city/area" and that should be pretty straight forward to rank.

    I was coming to say the exact same thing. Unless you expect people to pack up their stuff and fly around the world to your ice cream shop, just rank for ice cream + the name of EVERY city within 100 miles.
