    Hoping someone can shine some light on how a site is ranking so well. it has zero backlinks, and no content yet it has 54 keywords in the top 20 according to semrush. I am trying to help a friend rank in this genre and she has more blog posts with optimized content then this site that has none at all. any ideas how this site ranks #1 for keywords such as buy scentsy? any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    thanks,

    Ed

    ps i cant post links yet as im new to the forums so i guess i will have to pm the site name.

    Sounds like to me they cloaked their links and have them on some PBN or something.

    Just because you can't see the backlinks does not mean that the site doesn't have any.
