How much competition is too much?
I've been going through the guides over the last few days, but I have yet to start up my first site.
I first watched the video on setting up a very first site using clickbank.
For my first site, I intend to use clickbank to select an affiliate program. I found a program very quickly.
So now I want to examine my chances of getting on the first page of google are.
My question is: how can I figure this out?
How can I tell if there is too much competition?
Here is how I've researched so far:
I look at the top page on google for this search term. Alexa tells me that has a PR of 4.
84,900 sites link to this site. Most of the on-page seo elements have taken care of.
I then used traffic travis to analyse the keyword phrase I want to target.
The top site has 4 links from .edu and .gov domains. Over 5000 backlinks total.
Then I analysed the link at the very bottom of the google page.
It has a PR of 4, over 1.2 million inbound links.
From what I know after watching the getting started video, I can tell that there is money to be made targetting this keyword phrase.
But how can tell if there is simply too much competition?
