    I'm currently ranked #12 for a ~1.2 million/month search term, and ranked #1-8 for ~25k m/s worth of related longtails. The site is currently making me about $200 a week, and is also my only site making more than $10 a day right now. However, I don't see any sites on the first page other than big shops, wikipedia, and amazon, and the link competition is fairly competitive on the second page. I'm almost certain the niche is monitored, and I'm wondering if BHW thinks it would be worth the risk to make a final push for above the fold rankings?

    Me personally I would sit tight and collect the $200 a week.

    And as you said you think the keyword might be monitored + high completion so you might be better off sitting tight.

    I definitely think you should keep trying, but I wouldn't call it a "final push". If your competition is all huge websites then you need to continually get new links for those keywords at a steady rate. Huge sites get new links constantly so you won't be able to push them out of the way with one more single campaign. Slow and steady wins the race in this situation, but only if the potential profit is worth paying for high quality links on a regular basis.

    Try to continue in link building effort. Looking for higher quality backlinks. Purchasing high PR backlinks or guest blogging from high PR blogs.
