    Is it really possible? Someone said "Yes, it can. If you've got your site set up in webmasters with a sitemap, Google will crawl your site. You don't need links from other sites to rank. It just helps. A lot."

    If you are trying to rank for a somewhat competitive keyword, you will definitely need links. Dont listen to all the bs that you can rank with content alone, you definitely need quality backlinks.

    Depends on your keywords, the guy above is correct. Also if you have for very specific regions and countries with very small competition it is easy to rank anything. Your main concern should be competition and then link building and strategy you use.

    You can, but your onsite seo and site structure needs to be incredibility well done.
    Also, all the content has to be superb with tons of helpful info so visitors stay on the
    site so it is low bounce. So, basically a very well done authority site which will cost $$$.

    i didnt try that but you can make 3 tiers of internal links (with hundreds of pages) and hopefully that will boost the page above tier 1

    The source.... freewebsite.wordpress.com link is as valuable as trash. A general rule of thumb is, the harder it is to get the link the more valuable it is.

    think of it like a referral. a known guy in your niche versus a random guy on the street vouches for you.

    Viral link maybe more social share over there, and those share create backlinks for the website. Do you know that? Then how without link it's possible to get top place?

    Home Page:
    You can sometimes rank for easy to medium keywords if you have a lot of content on site (from my own testing). A lot of content means 100-200+ optimised articles. The more the better. They can be 400-500 words each no need for 1000+ words.

    Links are usually needed at least to your homepage in order to rank.
