    So I was just listening to a song and I wanted to check the lyrics quickly but when I was on the site it made me think how do they rank surely the content has so many duplicates? And any other of the small sites have no chance to rank?

    For one, ALL of those sites are using the same content. What would be ranking instead? G has very little as far as on page content to go on here. On top of that, most of those lyrics sites have been around forever and have tons and tons of natural links to individual pages.

    At the same time, a smaller site COULD outrank them if they built some authority and did some really good quality deep linking, but it's probably not something you want to do. Major uphill battle.

    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    Got database of 200,000 lyrics. Tried to build a lyric site, but only got like 10-20 visitors per day without promotion.

    Aggressive backlinking is the only way to go to grow such site to gain authority.

    Make the site unique with additional content, embed videos, etc., good branding, user friendly search engine so they come again and again. That's what they do to compete in the market where everyone has the same content.
