    I have, I am actually in 1st spot for a few keywords where I have 0 links to it.

    the keywords get about 100 searches a month each, and the CPC is 10c so it is VERY low comp...

    I should mention that the keywords go to a page of a website, but the websites home page, and other better keyword pages do get SEO.

    Yup, my first site, I'm just starting to build some links to it, but it naturally started ranking 1st and 2nd page for a bunch of terms after a couple of months, and the rankings are more or less stable. Some kws get only a couple hundred searches, a few between 500-1000, so no huge traffic, but as the KWS include a product name, the conversion rate is good :^)
    (Not an EMD, btw)
    Let's see what happens now with off-page seo.

    before Penguin striked, i had about 600 EMD domains that were 1 page miracles, no backlinks, nothing and most of them were on #1 position for the keywords they targetted, and those keywords were pretty highly competitive..

    nowadays i still have sites on #1 position without any backlinks, but these are domains registered after penguin and not really big competition

    Spent 4 years between 2nd and 5th spot for a highly competitive local keyword with absolutely no offpage SEO.

    yep, but for only low competition kw that didn't make enough money to bother with. Made more money selling it to someone who wanted it. It was PR2 in number 2 posistion on page one of google for exact match search.

    as i said they were 1 page miracles, meaning 1 plain page of html, little text and links/ads.. nothing more..
    I wasn't controling them with anything as there was no need as you see, since they were "build and forget"
    I wasn't using adsense, the EMDs i had were promoting other stuff..

    Cool. Yeah, I've had individual pages rank that I haven't done any SEO work on.

    But if you've done other linkbuilding for that site, then the site itself still has some authority so it's not quite the same as what I was asking in this thread.

    Now and then - for low comp terms it happens. If the URL that ranks is part of a larger site that already has authority - then this is a little easier (one of the main uses of root domain PR is the transfer of authority and SERP's potential to new URL's created on that site).

    So in short - yes - sometimes. Nothing dramatic. very low competition, very low cash potential - but certainly done it.

    If you can have some good content on an authority domain, most of ti's pages will rank without any SEO on it. Do the hardwork in the beginning and then mint money..

    It depends what niche you are in. Low competition kws 1-2k could be ranked with 800+ words long content a few social signals and strong backlinks

    Yes, a clients site for a local search term. All done through on page seo.

    This was before I discovered and understood off page backilinking.

    I actually found BHW as a result of this learning curve so it's all good

    a trick if you want to rank without doing backlinks is to make a huge 1 page article based around your keyword, like 1500-2000+ words with lots of images / embedded video etc. Also having the keyword somewhere in the domain helps a lot.

    I'm ranking a few sites that way. I've also had EMDs rank in the #1 spot without almost any backlinks but I did do some like directory submissions etc.
