Beating PR7 like Amazon in search engine

I am executing a plan at the moment of adding amazon products to my affilotheme website. I just bought the full version of Traffic Travis and found that Amazon website themselves are directly competing with me in search engines. They are always on the first four results when I am promoting a product made by them.

How difficult is for a newbie to beat them? On traffic Travis their on page optimization like h1 tag etc have a cross or wrong symbol or red colored. The only RIGHT "green colored tick is for DMOZ, while the other 3 have a cross sign.

I am talking only about beating Amazon here because they are only obstacle for my off page search engine optimization.

Hi swordsedge89,

It is so hard to beat Amazon for their ranking. What you can do instead is to figure out a way on how to get 'direct' visits/traffic to your site. Like for example, you may start promoting your website/amazon products to related, niche sites to get direct visitors. You may also use social media to get direct hits.

I hope that helps!

I understand social media. But "promoting your website/amazon products to related, niche sites to get direct visitors"? Do I go and talk to the niche site owners to promote my products and websites?

You may do guest posting for related niche sites. There are tons of websites who are looking for guest posts.

I hope that helps.

Maybe you can target long tail keywords/topics like "blue widgets review", "how to use blue widget", "blue widget a vs blue wiget b", "how to fix your blue widget", "blue widget 2.0 coming in 2014!".

Do more of a sideways approach to getting visitors to those products, instead of going for product names and model numbers, which isn't really good to do anymore anyway.

This would be a step back in the searchers buying cycle (buying vs researching), so your going to need to build trust and lots of content.

(If I understood your question right lol.)

Thanks man, which is what I meant asking lol. Ya the buyer keywords should be research based :). That is an awesome tip and makes perfect sense :)
