    so i have started me a new niche website journey and did my competitor research and found something that didn't make sense to me at all.. the term gets over 3 million monthly searches and the #1 result in google has these stats

    20,679

    ACTIVE LINKS​

    40

    UNIQUE ACTIVE LINKS​

    20,660

    LINKS TO HOME PAGE​

    16.9%

    NOFOLLOW LINKS​






    links are coming from 40 domain names o_O and 18.000 backlinks were built in 2016. say i want to rank for this keyword i should create backinks in those same 40 websites? like 10 links per website or a hundered? how can i beat this guy the search volume is just insane

    I rank #1 for like 5 million per month search term and trust me we do a lot more then those 40 domains which you see in ahrefs, they are more like 300 domains ;) Even my site shows like 30-40 domains in ahrefs in reality it has over 300 built over a period of 2 years.

    Check the other websites on page 1, are they also ranking with only few links? Also is it an inner page which is ranking? The guy could be running a secret network of say 100 blogs or he may have redirected his old domain which had thousands of links to this one. It is impossible to rank #1 for 3 million search term with just comments.
