    I am trying to find a niche for my semiauthority site (plan to do 100+ posts). Thus far I found one that has a lot of amazon, ebay, walmart and such type of sites on the first page. They all have usually pretty low PR 0-1, some occasional higher PR, very often they have zero to couple of backlinks (according to Market Samurai) and very little on-page optimization (a lot of them don't have the kw in title and url).

    Only thing that seems to be working for them is that they are Amazon, Ebay, Walmart and they have very old domains.

    Should I go for the niche or should I keep away because Amazon, Ebay and Walmart will outrank me?

    They will outrank you! however you have probably only looked at 1 or 2 keywords. If you are creating an authority site with 100+ pages, then you are going to pick up a ton of long tail keywords that these big sites dont necessarily get. Turn your focus away from the main keywords and base your site around a theme. Add great content and your site will start to get traffic!

    Too hard to say with such little details really. You can outrank big sites with the right optimization and backlinks as they probably aren't targetting them that heavily, they will just rank through pure authority.

    Generally no, as it will be harder than normal to rank for this type of kw. However if you are confident with your SEO skill then go ahead
