    What have you guys found is the easiest way to get ranked for long tail keywords that have no competition?

    Do you setup a blogger, do a squidoo, article, etc - what's been working for you, I'd like to know?

    Thanks.

    Primary target for the log tail are:
    1. good optimization page (keywords, title, etc)
    2. good inside linking page
    3. Linking...

    For me, no competition means that there is no commercial viability. I like at least 20,000 to 50,000 pages to compete against (as long as there are no "big guns" in the SERPs). Then I go out and kill them in the organic results with Web 2.0 SEO tactics.

    Wiz, I got a noob question.
    how do you define the "big gun" ?

    PR > X?
    authority website?
    have site links?

    Yes. Big Authority Sites. Not Web 2.0 sites, but sites like CNN for example.

    also make sure that there are no sites in the top 5 with PR 5+ otherwise it will be tough to dominate them!

    Remember that to take a keyword into the long tail you could start off with a competitive keyword and then add keyword modifiers to them. Example Sony TV. Could be taken into the long tail by adding: Buy Sony Tv model xxx. And then build web 2.0 properties around these long tail keywords

    hope that helps
