    It depends there is a number of things to look at.

    In some markets you can rank with just having your page set up right or only a few links to your site.

    Yes if he has 40 links from good article sites then yes that would be enough to rank.

    What do you mean relatively competitive keyword? Because I have an article hitting a relatively competitve keyword with only 40 social backlinks.
    What I mean by that is some keywords although they appear competitive the true competition is low..How do you define competitive?

    I have a medium keyword site that comfortably sits in position 1 without a single backlink created by myself. Sometimes the old addage of ... create a site people want to liink to and have good SEO ... works like a treat.

    Article backlinks can deliver big SE Ranking increases, especially if they are diverse with unique/spun content.

    They have even more weight if you pump them up with scrapebox or xrumer links, so 40 may sound like nothing, but you can't compare 40 article links with do-follow anchors to 40 scrapebox comments.

    It depends on the niche you can be 1# with 10 links or you can need 100000 links.

    If you want to see the competition see the link of the others sites and not just one.
