    So I am helping a local company get more traffic and customers and stumbled upon something -awesome- :

    My client had purchased around 25 domains about a year ago, one of them matching a very popular search term 'cheap XXXX' he owns the EXACT domain name for this search phrase, I did some scanning with my trusty friend Market Samurai and found that none of the top10 SEO results for this phrase are optimized for it and even better : none have an URL anywhere near as exact as the one I now have my hands on.

    The only thing is, the hosting company redirects the url to his already existing money page 'cheapXXXX.mainwebsite.com' but the 'cheapXXX' domain is always displayed in the URL bar (so it doesnt show up as a subdomain) Will this make a difference?

    And now here it comes, this is my competition :

    hxxp://img521.imageshack.us/img521/7625/compm.png (copy/paste and replace xx with tt)

    The SEO competition (# of sites that include exact phrase in google-index) is only 3.9 k

    Only 400 webpages globally use the keyword term in the title


    To me this seems like easy competition. Even though some of the sites have a good-PR, none of them have any decent optimized text, urls, nor are their pages optimized for this keyword. Nearly all the top-10 competitors just happen to use the phrase CHEAP XXX in one of their pages or sub-page titles.

    I immediately threw up a wordpress site on the domain and installed a good SEO theme, all in one SEO pack and made a nice static landing page with a well written, unique text of about 300 words that is really optimized for the 'cheap XXX' keyword.

    What should my strategy be from here on in ?

    I was planning on :

    - Adding about 5-6 more pages that feature the keyword
    - Make sure that tags and categories match keyword and related KW's
    - Copy the top-10 competitors backlinks where possible and then add more.


    I am very scared of unleashing the wrath of scrapebox/XR because its an actual SEO client and for obvious reasons, I can't risk any kind of sandbox or google slap.

    I would really love to get some second opinions from experienced SEO'ers. I feel I have a potential home-run lined up, I just don't want to swing too early and miss :)

    Play it easy - no need for anything BH here as youve got the domain.

    Should rank number 1 easily with 5 to 10 good inbound links and 10 pages of on-topic content.

    Just do all the usual onpage stuff and you will rank - ensure you are hosted in the correct country aswell.

    Yep - sounds like you've got it made. No need for scrapebox, just do some commenting, link from some of the other domains you/they have and with the onpage SEO, you should be good to go!

    whats the significance of hosting in the country of the target url? i didnt realise this was an issue and certainly isnt something that has been apparent in my own results....

    Brit in my opinion, if u host in the country it's the same as selecting the target country in google webmaster tools. Sometimes the sites won't appear in the "pages from the [country]" unless it's hosted there but who ever really clicks that option unless it's real hard to find a UK site in the results.
