Can you help with this SEO problem?

I have a new site which has been indexed by google, yahoo and bing.  
It is starting to gather a low level of traffic.
However I have discovered a problem.  
1.  It has a low level of estimated clicks but more worrying is the fact that
2.   the num ber of occurrences of the url in anchor tags is 469,000,000 even though the incidence in titles is 4.6 million.

I have to decide whether to abandon the url because of these two statistics which indicate that it will be almost impossible to get it up on the first page of google or whether to persist.
Your views and observations would be most welcome.
thanks

I wear a lot of hats...

I wouldn't consider this a problem, but then again it REALLY depends on the niche. If it's a more general niche, you shouldn't have to worry about being able to target the longer tail keywords, and you should be able to gain traction slowly that way. Also depends highly on how you're attempting to profit from the site.

Though I'm unclear of the question: You said the number of occurrences of the URL in anchor tags is 469 million. Did you mean the number of occurrences of keywords in domain URLs?

Also if this is a keyword rich domain targeting only one specific niche keyword/phrase/market, then I would have to take a completely new stance to re-answer the question.

If you could clarify the question further, or perhaps message me the site or keyword, I would be happy to look into it further.

If it's any correlation, I've brought a freshly registered domain to PR7 within 6 months using only whitehat tactics in a highly competitive gaming niche. IE competing with IGN, gamespot, kotaku/joystiq, etc. It's all about the time and effort you're willing to put forth. Tell you the truth, if you're passionate about the niche and know you can put in the work to make it profitable... it might sound corny, but anything is really possible.

What do your alternatives look like?

I presume you have only industry key words in your domain name.  Have you tried looking at domain names that are more specific to your potential customer base?  e.g. If you are currently "constructionequipment.com" have you looked at "constructionequipment-Quebec.com" (presuming your potential clients are based in Quebec), or similar?  This would help you improve your rankings for Quebec specific queries.  Similar for any other avenue of narrowing down your domain to match your customer base.

There is no silver bullet... you really need to look at who your target audience is and what the competition is already doing.  Just like you don't want to open a pizza parlor next to Food Court that already has 3 places that serve pizza, you wouldn't want to advertise a gluten-free pizza parlor as "food" when what you really want to capture is people looking for gluten-free alternatives.
