    It's really crazy. How is he doing it in terms of links? [Check out his case study]

    All pretty standard stuff IMO, I can't seem to find his PBNs

    I was researching keywords a couple days ago and came across this one.

    Guess ill have to reconsider my keywords. :)

    The owner got some good links doing the scholarship method. That surely helped

    I did this before and I did get good serp increases, but not to the extend of being ranked for such a competitive KW.

    Can't seem to find his PBNs too. Any thoughts?

    He didn't use any, i read his case study when he started the site on fb from him, only the scolarship program and some manual link building

    Also his post is 6k words, Google loves long post, it makes ranking much easier.

    I am very skeptical that this can be achieved with just the scholarship programme and manual link building?

    Yeah, I think that words have a big impact IMO.

    I spoke to him in a group, this is one site that blew all SEO theories out of water. For linking I think the main power is from scholarship links but that is never enough. So he definitely did something right to get them sweet ass position!

    That seem to be the main point and not much revealed by him on the link building he did except high DA posts.

    He has 400+ RD and 900+ links to his homepage. He only has links to 4 post on his homepage minus the menu and footer links so those 4 pages are getting major link juice.

    His content is very linkable, it doesn't seem like its made just to make money, it gives great information. If you email people and let them know about your site im sure they wouldn't have a problem linking to it. I think this is what he did.

    Gotta respect it.

    Just my 2 cents

    1. extreme long quality article.

    2. Use of table of contents , product comparison table, strong CTA

    3. Use of Add me fast and other service to get early social traction

    4. From the early days the has lots of comments. Somehow Big G sees lots of comments as some sort of well linked community.

    If someone is bringing in $40k per month then they are not going to tell ANYONE their REAL method for ranking.

    I think he deindexed all of the links. No spammy links showing for his website .

    Ahrefs/Majestic doesn't show only indexed links, even links that aren't indexed will show up. So it's just ahrefs and majestic that didn't pick them up that's all.
