How can small sites become popular?

Yes they can! The big popular sites were small once upon a time.

How can smaller sites with superior content ever rank over sites with superior traffic? It's a vicious circle: A regional or national brick-and-mortar brand has higher traffic, leads to a higher rank, which leads to higher traffic, ad infinitum.

It is really difficult issue. It needs time and continuously refreshing content. However if you are ready to invest money for advertisement everything could be faster

Obviously advertising is the best way for it. Seo is also a helpful part to make your website popular.

I've found advertising more often than not to be a waste of money when you compete with "the big guys".

I think that to compete in today's marketplace it's more than just SEO - you have to be your own Public Relations team as well as focusing on marketing.

You have to do EVERYTHING. Make people love you and want to do business with you.

With regards to responsiveness and the flexibility that Matt refers to, I like to think of a small web business like a motorcycle on the freeway. While big lumbering companies are moving along bumper to bumper, a bike can zoom in and around traffic and be more effective.

Thanks HTML for the share.

Doing all this stuff takes time and seeing this video gives me hope. If I could print it out and tape it to my laptop screen, I would....... maybe I should print out the transcript and repeat it every night before I go to sleep.

Sorry, but at what point in the video did he say to advertise or do forum posting? Did you watch the video? I just watched it again in case I missed anything he said.

I've seen this before. While it's encouraging, the slow nature of SEO is frustrating. Very frustrating.
The issue I see is that these companies often have lots of employees all pumping out quality content, and one blogger vs many will not always work out well. So yes, as Matt Cutts says, produce quality content and you'll rise, but it will take a hell of a lot of work to get there and you'll need to get more quality content out every day (BufferApp come to mind as I write this as it happens.)

basically if your offering unique product or a product or service better than the others in the same market segment and focuses on quality content writing.. yes with time you could become popular.. !
