    in this forum, majority of us believe that, more backlinks and optimize context help websites get to highly ranked in search engines,

    but website listed below ranked #9 for one of the most competitive keywords "SEO"

    they have less than 100 backlinks according into google and and most of the content look very typical for SEO company

    can anyone explain big theory behind their ranking? open to discussion

    Hi socialdevinfo

    I checked the SERP for google.com and they are at #15. As for rankings in US according to SerpAttacks is #19. The backlinks are over 1K. I have attached an image for the top 19 analysis for the term SEO in United States. The way I see it, its more about good on-site SEO and quality backlinks. Also if you search more on SEMRUSH you will see he is ranking well in different types of SEO related keywords. May be the site is indicating some level of authority?

    I hope others who are more experts in SEO will clarify more as I'm a noob when it comes to SEO :)

    Google does not list all the backlinks it counts as valid.

    If it did then it would all be so easy wouldn't it........

    Well, it's better to use other tools in your analysis that gives you more details such as Market Samurai, SerpAttacks, TrafficTravis etc.

    I understand everything you guys said , but think about if you analysis SEO companies listed in first 3 pages, it seems he has the least number of articles and backlinks, there are many major players in SEO business, that willing to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars to get ranked in first page of google for keyword "SEO", but this site is a serious misery to me

    Hehe you are right, forgot to mention that too plus the backlinks they have might be little but have a lot of excellent juice from other backlinks.
