I'm not sharing this to brag but to encourage all the small business/ecommerce owners that if you follow google's basic SEO guide and have a decent backlink building method then you can be on the top of Google for natural search results.
My website is in the rifle scope niche (www.etacticalriflescopes.com which is an affiliate website) is on the top of Google for the following search terms:
"Tactical Scopes" (ranks without quotes also)
"Tactical rifle scopes"
Currently ranks on page 4 for the broad term "rifle scopes" ( I have not been targeting this keyword ter just yet).
It also ranks for many other keyword terms.
My site currently brings in $250+ a month in ebay commissions alone. It also brings approx $50 in adsense earnings.
It also receives over 3,800+ visitors a month and 8,000 pageviews.
The keywords "tactical rifle scopes" and "tactical scopes" have a PPC of $.97 and $.69 per click. Thats money I don't need to spend on advertising.
Imagine if your small business had this exposure. You need to find a small niche within your market, build on that, then expand and target your website for the broad terms.
If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
