    Like all noobs, I did not know what I was doing at first and my first website did not have anything to do with what I was trying to rank for keywordwise. I played around with it but never really got it to rank properly, but then I just recently registered a new domain.

    CPC: $4, monthly searches: 5k, about 100k competing sites with not a lot of backlinks to first page. I then registered a COMPLETELY NEW domain less than a week ago and from posting 1 article and not making a single backlink, I rank on page 9 for my keyword and page 3 for my keyword + "es". And hope that I can then get it to page 1 with 2 x a full day of backlinking =)

    If my keyword was "match box" then the domain i registered is called "matchboxes.com". I hope this shows you the power of finding a niche that is not too competitive, but also finding a proper domain name.

    I hope this was helpful. If you need my advice on anything reply to this thread or send me a PM

    Maybe post the SEO Competition (if you have MS - which is free BTW on BHW) to show what your top 10 is looking like and then keep us updated about your progress :)

    Hope to see your ranking go up in the next few weeks dramatically :)

    I might make a progress log, but don't have the time to work on the site for another 2½ weeks due to exams, so right now it's just waiting =) Yea tried getting MS, but can't get the patch, could you send it or upload it and send me the link, then I'll post the competition

    i see people doing the same mistakes and than they success and don't even know why, i was just talking about the same thing on the irc channel,

    you can do 5 links in hard competitive niche and still get rank and out rank lot of competitors the only thing you have to do is check your competitors backlinks strength and you see that from all of his backlinks there is only 2-3 backlinks that doing all the work and all the rest is 100% junk.

    so i agreed on the keyword research you have to do it right, but you can get ranked in any niche no matter how competitive is it if you know what to look and what to do.

    Sure, but I'm talking about noobs trying to rank for "free ipad", "make money" etc.

    Your brand new site is getting a "honeymoon bonus" for new content as well as strong bonus from the exact domain match. Double bonus = better rankings. But what will happen when the honeymoon expires?

    scooky, i posted it before google cached it so it's not seeing a change in the cashed version.. yea, perhaps a new site bonus, but not new content, and im starting linking a bit now so guess i wont see if it was just a bonus or not
