    Ok heres a quick summary.

    This website is ranking 1st for a 2900 MS keyword with a 15USD CPC. KW is "Pest Control Singapore

    Check out his backlinks profile:

    28-4-2016 1-27-01 PM.jpg


    1) Only 10 referring DO-Follow Domains
    2) Close to ZERO local citations
    3) Did a exact URL search on google to fish out any hidden PBNs, couldnt find any.
    4) ZERO Web 2.0 properties.
    5) The next competitor who is ranked 2 has 369 Do-Follow Domains, but still is not able to outrank this dude.

    The question is, how is this guy doing that?
    1) PBNs? I highly doubt so, as to rank for local SEO you need more local referring domains
    2) URL Shortener -> URL Shortener -> Money site spam? Perhaps. I have never tried this method, is it really that effective to rank?

    Good to hear your advices & insights.

    PS: This keyword is a good keyword for rent and rank SEO. Please feel free to make use of it.

    Why is that so? Are you the owner of this site?

    Well it is just not a good practice to put your competitor web url on the thread.

    By the way it ranks high because of the high authority backlinks, as you can see it has extremely related local links from sg.
