    That was fantastic use of anchor text in your original post. Good to know you have Penguin in mind when linking out :)

    I also rank my own websites and some of my clients' websites with just on-page SEO and without building any backlinks (Hell, I even have a whole guide about how I do it), so you're correct and their "study" is rubbish. Just look at this quote below:
    Of course they had at least 1 external link, they're at the top of the SERPs, so somebody is bound to link back to those articles. However, that doesn't mean that they were ranking because of those links to begin with. I have articles that were ranking within the top 3 without any backlinks, and even when they were getting linked to naturally, they only went up 1 or 2 postions.

    Maybe a low competition niche it could work but I doubt a highly competitive niches is ranking without backlinks or a strong authority which would probably also take some backlinks to get there.
