    When doing KW research I sometimes come upon these Amazon MNS that suck. Have like 2 articles on them and then one page filled with amazon links..outranking sites like webmd and wikipedia for the number one spot. I know it depends on the KW and the Page authority of those authority sites but it's a semi-decent micro niche keyword (800-1000 exact per month, $2 cpc)

    Because whoever told you that you needed quality content to rank lied to you. Quality content is important in keeping rankings long term, but it's not required in getting the ranking.

    As long as their on-page is spot on and they know how to avoid the google filters, they can rank with strong or spammy backlinks.

    it only has 2 back links according to this, and a handful of social signals...that's enough to outrank mega authority sites ?

    Yes it is, I rank with an EMD with 4 Backlinks on #2 for a 3'600 US Searches Keyword with 3$ CPC.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    That's not always the case. Sometimes there are blog networks which don't allow services like ahrefs to crawl them (robots.txt file FTW). You will never see those links, you will try to outrank them, you will fail if you don't have a network as strong or stronger.

    This has always confused me. From what I read on other threads, many users here say you can't really block ahrefs and majestic from crawling, unless you own the backlink's website too, or some others also mention how ahrefs and majesticseo uses different user-agent and stuff. No idea.

    Robots.txt is more of a request than anything else. No robot or spider has to honor what you put there, but all the major search engines and many other robots claim the will honor them. Robots.txt isn't something you use to prevent sections or pages of your site from being accessed. What you put there is just a request.

    Or even 301 redirects to the money site which is probably the best current spam ranking technique, if done properly, and using some other less known, but effective, SEO techniques - you can rank for 99% of keywords.

    301 works but also spamming with an absurd amount of links also helps. For the short term that is.
