Can you outrank Yelp?

    I'm gonna build a review website for a specific industry.

    Could not find other review sites for this niche. The top Google positions all belong to Yelp.

    My question: How hard would competing with Yelp be? Would it be possible, without being crazy difficult, to outrank Yelp, given that the website will be specific to this industry? Have you had similar experiences like this?

    You will need crazy good links alright. Otherwise, its impossible.

    A brand new website will never outrank an established, old website. There are exceptions, but it's rare, almost unheard of. The only feasible way you can get traffic to your new website is through social media, local directories, Google My Business, AdWords and so forth.

    It only could be possible if you have good budget to reach number of audience. You can do from a region where Yelp is not much in existence or you can do just for a specific state.

    Thanks. That's actually my strategy.

    Yeah I guess it's rare. Thanks.

    Wow, thanks! I'm actually considering if I should try and go even more specific, the by-state approach may be worth exploring. Countries without too much Yelp are definitelly a good target.
