Alright, clearly my research skills suck horribly. I got the basic idea of SEO down but anything more than that Im really struggling with.
I wanted to try and rank for the keyword "land auction", when I google it the first thing I see is 244,000,000 results. So of course I shaked my head and wanted to cry haha. I then started to check the first 2 pages of google and noticed that a lot of the top ranking sites have a couple of thousand back links (1k-3k) backlinks to be exact, and the keywords for some of them arent "land auction" but clearly its in the right category. Everything that was on the 2nd page had a couple of hundred backlinks, I know backlinks arent everything but if someone can point me in the right direction that would be great.
