    Got into a niche very early just a couple of minutes after a big company announced their next new gadget on a private presentation. This was 3 weeks ago and i'm currently serp rank 1 on 4 different keywords and some of my pages being ranked up to 4 times on the first page.

    Even though the Keyword and related phrases have been trending topics on Twitter I havn't seen any competition on the first page of google yet. The competition I had for a while dropped back to the third page due to being an autoblog and their domain name not being up to date with the new gadget anymore. While the Gadget's release date and preorder dates are still not made public yet, i'm getting 200-450 views a day which are all organic searches which are also all direct matches to my domain name, description and Title.

    Their previous gadget, which will be outdated when this one comes out had around 30k local searches. I wanted to know how big this oppertunity is and what I should focus on getting my site locked in position now.

    I'm not running any ads yet, am trying to optimize the site as much as possible untill a release is clear. And since i'm running a WP News blog I am thinking about dropping adsense bars next to both of my sidebars and one big one next to my index.

    I am currently focussed on writing targetted articles for my keywords, up to 4 a day and stuff in some spinned articles. Apart from that its all onsite SEO i'm trying to do and it seems to be working

    Anything else i'm forgetting,or perhaps should I drop my ads sooner and anticipate that I might drop much lower in the future?

    I was able to snag domains the same way, but didn't build them out until MONTHS after the product launched. That was extremely stupid of me and a couple competitors really got the edge on me.

    So good that you are already on it! Next step is to take a look at previous similar products and do keyword research on those older product keywords. Do this for 3 or 4 products that are very similar. You'll start to see some similarity in keywords for those types of products. Those are the keywords that you want to focus on! Begin building pages around those and then do your best to get your site in front of eyes in your niche. That will help you build links and establish credibility early on.

    Ive got all of that covered already, just a bit hard to get the niche infront of targeted vistors because my writing isn't that good or catchy.

    I did think about doing a Gadget giveaway for people who like my FB Fanpage or twitter my site, or sign up for my newsletter. The Gadgets will cost around $300-$400 a piece so I could give a way 3.

    I actually already registered a "FreeGadgetname" facebook page fanpage for this but i'm not sure how I should get all of this started. Is it a good idea at all?
