Is Possible to Surpass Someone That Has High Ranking Position?

3 replies
If I do everything right with my keywords, and use a long tail keyword, can I surpass people that have article ranking position #5 on page 1 if I write the right kind of article to article directory?

Thank you.

    Depends on a couple many backlinks your competitor has and the age and authority rank of their site.

    Chances are you probably won't be able to rank high for a competitive long tail KW just by writing an article though.

    Yes its quite possible, but it depends on the longtail phrase you use. If its in a competitive niche your chances of ranking are less.

    To get an accurate gauging of your competition for the longtail title you want to use do a google search for the title and put it in "quotations". This will bring up all the pages with that exact phrase. If the number of sites with the phrase are low you have a great chance of ranking high for it.

    To increase that chance by 10 fold, bookmark your article in the top 10 or 15 social bookmarking sites. Try Social bookmarking service. Fast tagging and posting to all major social websites - The first time that you use might be a little time consuming coz you have to register in each bookmarking site. But once your done with that, it will be much faster next time round.

    A problem with trying to get articles to rank is the time they say there. Most articles fall off the first page after a week or so. This also depends on what niche your in and how compeditive your keywords are.
