There is a keyword that i Chose to build links for my site that has large volume of search but ultra low compitition(about 40000) Can I chose it to build links. THe first page results in Google are big sites ..atleast the first 4.
as Bogart said, look up the numbers of incoming links to the top 20 sites..also try to find out if the incoming are dofollow links or nofollow...a site may have 1000s links and that may put you off..but if they are nofollow then you do have a great chance..
I would like to suggest you to install SEO4Firefox or SEOQuake add-on for this purpose. It would display SEO information of the domain you visit and of course includes the inbound links to the domain and page level.
all the best,
I would suggest SEO Spyglass...its free version is enough to check up on your competitors.. All you need to do is to put the URL of your competitor and run it...
It will find the incoming links to the page..and then will examine each of those incoming links. It will check the anchor text, the PR of the page, the IP address, whether its do or nofollow..
Its a great software..
No use checking for how many links a big site has!! when he says big its a clear idea they must be some article directories or social bookamarking sites or blogging pros like problogger or dailyblogging tips .You will need to borrow your neighbours PC to count their links ! there are hundreds of crores of links. Dont try to rank for a generic keyword, try to hit for a long tail keyword . read this will surely help
