    My brother was looking for some SEO service and while talking to a SEO provider, asked for example work done by the provider. The guy claimed that something[dot]com is ranked by him. The site does not have any content or anything, its a blank site. But it ranks no1 on google for search term "something".

    Anyone has any idea how the site has been ranked?

    I have EMD with unique content, which is not ranking #1 on google.

    That's interesting...

    Did you check the off-site SEO? Where are the backlinks coming from?

    Also check the website in the Wayback Machine.

    How old is the domain?

    Well it's a 13 year old PR5 domain with tens of thousands of backlinks. Most even seem to be accidental, just people accidentally using "something.com" instead of "example.com".

    Independently of the seo job done, the biggest step is on the keyword research, a .com emd moves up through to google serps like crazy.
