I am from India and I am seeing many website in the job/recruitment niche getting very high alexa and search engine traffic so fast in google India ( google.co.in ). They have very less backlinks and none of the backlinks have any PR. Below are some examples: portalforjobs.com -- alexa 25k -- backlinks from 53 domains ( majesticseo ) -- created 23-apr-2013 topjobsite.in -- alexa 17k -- backlinks from 54 domains ( majesticseo ) -- created 23-feb- 2013 I am not trying to reveal anybody's site, I can easily find 20-30 more sites like this. Alexa rank does not seem fake because these sites are actually ranking for lots of keywords. I don't understand how can sites rank with so less backlinks ( when almost all links don't have any PR ). Can somebody provide any insight about this?
