Hi everyone,

We are starting a new project and our keyword we want to rank well with has around 1,300 searches a month within the UK. allintitle: show us that there are around 3,500 - 4,000 pages using the keyword.

My questions is - we need to be ranking on the first page 1-5 postition, any tips on the best way we can move forward, our domain includes the keyword.

Many thanks

Why are you only concentrating on one keyword phrase? You should be optimizing for the hundreds of phrases that people might use to find out more about what you offer.

That said, all the info you need to know regarding optimizing to improve your rankings can be found in our Tips for Newbies section.

Well, if you have fixed your targeted keywords, say to around 4-5 prime keywords, then you must first get all the keywords in two groups of long-tail keywords and short-tail keywords. After you've done that, then you must start link-building process for the long-tail keywords and try to get at least some substantial traffic and rankings for those keywords.
When you see the long-tails in the rankings, then switch your attention to the short-tail ones and then finally your actual targeted keywords.
If you follow the process, then it ll be easier for your keywords to sustain the competition that you get in the top 10.
And yes, not to forget, linking on relevant sites is a must....

It may be worth considering PPC, I know its almost a dirty word in SEO, but if you want one spefic term, and thats a challenging term - paid search is often the cheapest and easiest way to go - unless it is competitive.

Is the domain name or related domain names free? and can you build a site on that domain ?
