    Last day, I checked one of my client ranking and I found a new competitor ranking in position 3 without exact title and without any link with the anchor of the keyword. I checked some other keywords and he is here too.

    Does soemone already had this thing happend ? I can send the website throught pm if soemone can help me finding what he did.

    Thanks

    It's nothing but a guess of course, but I would say shear chance and that it probably won't last long... it's the same thing as when our pages drop for a short time due to a 'Google dance'.

    Why do you think he doesn't have any links? Majestic and OSE can take weeks and months to add backlinks to their listings.

    True, but if he has been making a huge amount of backlinks in a short time he will probably have left a footprint the size of NY. Try searching for backlinks manually in google and look for any footprints to find out what he has been up to.
