So much talk about backlink, and page rank and afterall, it's all just a myth? I search on G for "outdoor booster" and this site comes up #1: http://www.argtek.com/manufacturer/26507/26507.html check out the site stats: PR: 1 Alexa Ranking: 1.4M domain created: 2002 site explorer: inlink to the page: 18 - all INTERNAL! inlink to homepage: 256 - 100% INTERNAL link as far as i can see! <meta name="keywords" content="Outdoor Booster manufacturer, Outdoor Booster supplier , Outdoor Booster exporter, Outdoor Booster trader, Outdoor Booster OEM, ODM , Outdoor Booster seller, Taiwan, China, Asia - 26507 - "> <meta name="description" content="A specialized manufacturer and supplier of Outdoor Booster in Taiwan. Welcome to visit our website to browse more Outdoor Booster relative products. - 26507 - "> so what makes this page #1? exact title and meta tags? the age of the site? So we talk backlink and PR all day long and in the end simple meta tags do the trick? Of course i am sure if i have the exactly same meta, i wouldnt rank #1. Am I missing something? or is the whole blackhat world is over rated? there should be plenty of experts here that can provide some explanations/guesses? thanks btw, i am curious why when you guys post links here, you add special characters in between? is it because you dont want G to see the site having something to do with blackhat community?
