    The 1st position has like 80 odd context relevant backlinks so I understand how they got to be number one but number two has only two backlinks. Also others on the front page have non...

    So how did they get to be there?...I have like 32 backlinks now and I am still only just in the top 100 runners- so how are they up there with hardly any/no backlinks and I'm still crawling along down at the back.

    Most of my backlinks are also context relevant since I did mostly manual posting to relevant blogs. I've only done BH stuff recently to try and boost myself up of which the results haven't become apparent yet/haven't gone through yet.

    What's going on?

    Content relevant to the keyword, keyword rich, domain age, proper meta tags.. those all play a part in gaining rank.

    Backlinks aren't god amongst the variables that promote your SERP rankings. I have seen many niches with 40-50 backlinks outranking exact domain names. Have you checked through your on-page SEO to make sure its performing at its best?

    It's not all about backlinks.

    I often wonder if my competition get as frustrated as you, it's as simple as blocking majestic/ahrefs/moz bots hiding your backlinks.
