Just 1 backlink from very good authority domain can rank a site in extremely low KW?

    Hi guys.
    In a longtail KW I seen that sites on first page have just no more than 10 backlinks.
    So this is my question: If I buy an expired domain stll index in google with high metrics DA/PA/TF/CF, do you think just one backlink from this site can stick on first page the target site in that Longtail KW?
    Thank you.

    Sites you see could be (and most probably are) powered by PBNs that are hidden from crawlers.

    Ofcourse for a low competition keyword ranking with just 1 backlink, or even without any backlinks is possible, but as a rookie you probably wouldn't be able to spot these kind of opportunities, or have the required on-page SEO to achieve this.

    There is no way for anyone on this forum to tell you what exactly is required for your backlinking campaign without getting more information. And even then it's hard for anyone to have a guess.

    You are right and wrong in the same time, no one can guarantee that because we don't know some factor:
    - What is the authority of this domain ? I mean how many links it have on the root
    - Are you sure your competitor don't use hidden PBN ?
    - Have you check his internal linking

    Tegardless of these answers you will need a good links profile from diversity source, for exemple I have seen by the past a guy tryed to rank an easy keywords in pet niche with one single link from the huffingtonpost, totally fail and he never seen the page 2

    So checks well before take all the time and money to make it

    No way, you are going to need more backlinks.
