    I've got the following on my mind. I am setting up my first site, and it will be a niche directory. It is small and there is little seo done in this niche, so imo there is not much needed to rank it high. Below are the stats for 1 of the main keywords, the other keywords are pretty similar.

    I dont have any seo experience, and not sure wether ranking a directory is the same as ranking a normal website? Since it is a directory, there is not much content to be added. Given the results listed above, it should not be too hard to rank it right?

    Also, the first 3 are google places listings, is there any trick or way to get your site listed above it?

    You are right about that. Looks pretty easy to rank... but I've had lots of sites that are easy to rank that for one reason or another google didn't.

    Hire someone to do the seo, or order up some high PR packages... Depends on budget really.
