    Hello everyone! I cant post links, so i will try to explain myself as good i can :cool:

    Im new to this whole SEO thing, i have read a lot and i am now on the hunt for my first niche. Im trying to judge how big the competition is for my keyword, but i have stumbled upon a site i cant get any info on. I got no idea why - alexa tells me they only have 24 backlinks but when i click to see them nothing shows up. Judging by the site which is an very ugly, google translated shop they seem to be very aware of SEO, and to me it looks like black hat. I dont have much more than my intuition to base this on, but could anyone give me a hint towards how i find out more about competitors such as this? The niche is a specific nike shoe, and it seems very odd they rank so highly.

    Also, a pure html site like ranks in top 5 when searching for nike free, danish google. It basically just a page with 2 articles, side by side, not styled at all and no links included. Looks like a word document. To me this seems very strange, and easy to take their spot? Im probarly missing something here (maybe the two sites are linked in some way?) could anyone give me a hint on this?

    Hope someone can help me out, would be much appreciated!:eek:

    To get a better view on the competition you should try aHrefs to check their link profiles.
    Also,the social influence it's not something to be ignored.

    Cheers
