help wanted -- live competition analysis for a specific and detailed product

4 replies
greetings warriors, newbie here asking for help
as you see in the title, a reasonable explanation is expected.
here goes the true case:
niche: Kodak EasyShare Z981
keyword: Kodak EasyShare Z981; Kodak Z981; Kodak Z981 review
search volume [local + exact]:5400; 6600; 1900
approx cpc:0.67
i think my seo job is not too bad: EMD, keywords in tags of title, description, keyword, appropriate keyword density, themed content, the quality of my articles i think is not too bad as well, etc. but without link building.
this site was lunched one month ago, with a weekly update, and there are four articles.
today i checked the SERP, i found no my site or pages, and the top 10 pages have 0 PRs with two PRs of 4, and i checked their inbound links, almost of which are 0 and n/a, moreover many sites seem to be not seo-specific [could this cause be: they are authority sites?]
so... i am confused what is the reason?
ps, the competition is not tough, right?
hopeful, my expression of the situation is understandable.
thanks in advance

    The competition doesn't look to be a lot at all, but you still need backlinking.

    With some consistent backlinking, you should be able to rank.

    Yeah high quality websites are important, but without back links no one will see the website. The nice thing about a high quality website is that after you do your back linking and get the site up to the number 1 spot in google, back links will start happening organically. People will see how great your site is and talk about it on their own sites.

  • how is the competition not alot? how are you judging competition?

    I do it by how tough the top 10 looks, because that is where I want to be, and it's damn near impossible to outrank a cnet or zdnet or dpreview for a product page or site imho and they are all present

    it can be done, but you will need to get way more creative than put up some text and some links you create yourself.

    good luck

      thank you, digitalproductreporter, for your bright insight, this is also my concern, i am stuck with these "authority sites", sometimes, i am a little worried that even if i add well themed content and quality inbound links, could my page outrank those sites, with the #1 spot? well, people are always saying, let the split test speak and prove it
      i hope i can get good results
