    I have ahrefs.... The majority are super authority links like from TheGuardian, NYTimes, NBCNews, Vice.co, SFGate, TheAtlantic, Today.com in the form of editorial articles/posts..... The site I am referring to is thespruce.com

    Their estimated traffic worth went from 0 on March 2 2017 to now being worth 6.9 million on April 20, 2017? They are growing at 10x the rate of BestProducts... which has organic traffic worth of "only" 3.6 million... The spruce has twice the traffic of BestProducts (owned by Hearst btw) already in just 2 months.

    The rate at which they are building is insane. I am curious what it takes in terms of budget and how would something like this even be managed? I would assume they would need a project manager or several to just to delegate tasks and how would something like this even be organized?

    Referring domains went from 348 to over 85,000 in like 2 months?

    They are also targeting "best" keywords and "review" keywords btw targeting stuff like "best hair dryer" btw despite the fact that their homepage look clean of so called "quality content".....

    They were about.com and have redirected to this brand name. So all that power and authority has transferred. When the hearst news broke out 'about' had also commented that they were doing the same thing.

    Another site of there;s is thoughtco.
