Hi guys, I'm going after an exact match keyword that has about 100,000 searches a month. The number 1 to 5 spots are filled with guys who have the keyword in the domain name while mine is only related. The number one spot has about 1,500 visible backlinks pointing to it with about maybe 10 or so pages of content.
I'm currently ranked 20th and my site has about 40 pages of content targeting different keywords in the same niche including the page targeting the keyword.
Do you guys think I can out rank them if I create backlinks like mad and also how long would it take?
