    Hello, I know I'm kinda new here so please dont flame :)

    but I recently saw a site that was ranked #1st spot on Google but it only has roughly 100 backlinks. Now the #2nd and #3rd sites have tens of Thousands of backlinks :eek: even though they basically work with the same Keyword as the 1st spot.

    Now please tell me how a site with only a hundred backlinks, and looks really shitty, be ranking higher than these other sites that look professionally made.

    I cant tell the sites, or keyword srry.

    The site ranked first probably had a much older domain and the backlinks were probably higher quality backlinks.

    The on site optimization was probably done better than the other sites as well.

    Pretty simple.

    In all honesty, this was a retorical question and the waste of a thread.

    Why do my balls look like they do?

    How the hell is anyone going to know what my balls look like unless I describe them?

    It may have the phrase in the URL and the others don't.
    The other pages have more backlinks but not directly to the article targeting that phrase.
    Better quality backlinks

    3 simple things that make a world of difference.

    It could be 301 redirect. Without looking the site we could simply guess.

    You asked for answers without giving specific data. The question can not be answered but only guessed at without data to analyze.
