    Opinions please, want to get first position in serps

    I've found a keyphrase (4 words) that seems advertiser competitive with the top and sidebar positions on Google's results page full. They're paying up $11 for the top listing, and the niche is competitive at the publisher level.

    I want to get the number one position without spending a small fortune in SEO, but it's going to be a very hard task, so I need some advice.

    I won't make the niche public or my URL, but I can tell you that none of listing URLs are a match, all listings are a single listing, and page one for the phrase looks like this;

    1. PR7 exact match in title, phrase in content
    2. PR6 exact match in title, meta description and keywords, similar phrase in content
    3. PR6 exact match in title and description, similar match in content
    4. PR4 affiliate site, close match in title, similar match in content
    5. PR6 keywords in title and description but not an exact match, keywords used in content
    6. PR5 keywords in title and description but not an exact match, keywords used in content
    7. PR5 keywords in title and description but not an exact match, keywords used in content
    8. PR3 exact match in title and keywords, close match in description, exact match in content
    9. PR5 close match in description, keywords appear in content
    10. PR3 similar match in title and descriotion, keywords used in content

    I have a general blog, PR6 which ranks on either page one or page two for another long tail within the same niche as the one I want to target.

    What would I need to do to rank on page one of the niche against those other sites, and what might be involved in getting number one?

    Don't focus much on PR. Check the age of domain and its authority, page (which you want to beat), and backlinks - check both quantity and quality.

    Do you have quality backlinks for this niche to your domain?
    Did you built links to this page or you just wrote the content, linked it from inner pages?
    Will you be able to build backlinks for the new page? (from related sites)
    (without spending a small fortune in SEO, as you said)

    Depends on the strength of your competitors and the strength of your general blog. Analyze sites carefully - age etc (mentioned above)

    Sorry for digging up an old thread, but my topic is related to this thread. I myself wanted to get my site to rank at the first position, or at least the first page.

    I was doing well since the beginning of the month, I was roaming around the 60th position in the G00gl3 serps, but today I am no where to be found in the first 100 positions. I was also ranking #1 at Yahoo, but now I am pushed back down to #9 (page 2).

    These changes happened after I had done some profile link building.

    I bought a couple PR3+ links as well, and some blog posts, all this was done yesterday and today.

    Have any of you had your sites pushed down on the serps, which later came back up? What do I suggest I do?

    SERPS rise and fall. Just keep promoting your site and, over the long term, it will rise in the SERPS.

    Ditto. If you panic every time a site drops in rank positions, you will just lose sleep and may overreact and screw something up.

    SEO is a long-term solution.

    Like Will said SERPS rise and fall. Sometimes it falls for no reason, just keep building backlinks, it often helps.
