    Hello,
    fellow blackhatters,

    I am not an SEO expert, but I do often check whats latest, what works or not.
    Today, i was doing some research for my partners site socialclickers.com which is an aged domain with decent backlinks struggling for ranks. Thats an established, legit site and doing business since 2014. While checking some highly competitive keywords like "buy facebook likes" I found (get****likes.co.uk link edeited for their privacy) a 1.7 year old site, with Page Authority 1, domain authority 7 on the 1st position.
    Here is the search page
    https://www.google.com/search?q=buy...69i60j69i65.6040j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Is this Google dance? I dont think so, because they have been ranking for quite some time and I guess they are receiving at least 15000 clicks from Google per month for related keywords.
    48% of their search traffic comes from keyword "buy facebook likes"
    I tried to check their backlinks but nothing that significant.

    Any other explanation?

    I dont ask for the tricks, or exact method, actually I was curious to know if its possible with black hat stuff? This shouldnt be google dance for so long.
    This also raises a question whether PA, DA are actually have anything to influence SERP?
    I also had a feeling after spending many years trying, that doing SEO for such competitive term is almost impossible, and top positions are almost reserved for big brands, but that site proved me wrong.

    But I am removing the domain name of the site I was talking about, may be this will make the whole post absurd.

    DA and PA is not a google metric and have 0 impact on ranking. You need a good experience in BH SEO to rank such hard keywords. white hat shit not going to help you rank such keywords.

    I am involved, yes. I do see the technical things. But this is off topic, right?
