    How is this guy ranking?

    For a competitive keyword - party bus Chicago, he ranking 4th.

    According to hrefs only three backlinks?

    One of them from apartments.com subdomain, others are junk ...


    Any ideas?

    Maybe with hidden PBN.

    Hidden PBN aren't visible on Ahrefs ,Majesticseo or other backlink checkers.

    what exactly is wrong with posting others urls?

    does that hurt him in any way?

    yeah, I am shocked that a guy with three referring domains is ranking on the first page of $5 PPC keyword ...

    You might not be shocked, you just can't figure it out, so instead youre bitching about posting someone elses url ...

    Because you are exposing another's niche and giving people cause to replicate it and compete with him and his site shows up on BHW which many would not like as there is a misconception as to what this site is to the uninformed.

    One idea is to do some homework / analysis on the website creator (whose name is on the bottom, with a hyperlink to their business website) and the sites they built - there are plenty. Might be a discernible pattern, or names associated with other sites to indicate a PBN (as suggested above).

    Not sure how much effort down this path is worth it vs just doing what you need to do to rank normally.

    Top ranking sites have hidden links that are powerful enough to rank them where they do.
