    I'm trying to determine the competition for a keyword and I'm not sure how to interpret the stats.

    The page has high TF/CF/PA but zero backlinks. I guess it all comes from internal backlinks from inner pages but how much should I really read into these stats?

    The homepage cannot have high TF if it does not have any active backlinks. Now, and inner page can have a good TF from the juice flowing from the HP of the site without the inner page having any links. Hope that made sense..

    Now that's random...

    Yeah that's what I wrote - but how strong does it make the page? Is it even close as powerful as if the page had some backlinks with the same kind of stats pointed to it?

    You see this a lot because Google favors authority domains, so their inner pages will rank without any backlinks. You're better off looking at the keyword competition as a whole or getting familiar with keyword comp. scores on a tool like Spyfu and analyzing competition that way. Just looking at the numbers of one page ranking at the top isn't going to tell you much.

    It's a foreign keyword so can't really use Spyfu.

    Yes, this is how parasite pages work actually and are easier to rank. Because of the high authority of the domain, the internal pages rank far easier because of all the homepage juice flowing to it.

    This is why domain authority is important.
