Looking for advice on a keyword with 90k searches that I'm ranked #5 on.

    When I first created this site I was receiving quite a bit of traffic from somewhere that I didn't expect to be . . . Google. This site has been sitting around for almost a year and I've been adding content to it every so often probably once or twice a month. I'm currently rank #5 for a keyword term that has 90k searches and I am truly amazed because I've done no SEO to the site whatsoever.

    My question is of coarse I want to rank this site to #1 I'm getting around 5-6k unique organic visitors from being #5. When I que "keyword" into Google 20k results show. The #1 spot only has 49 total backlinks to their page whilst mine has 0 built. What types of links should I build to pass these competitors?

    Would doing pure social bookmarking get me to #1? I mean is that possible? I don't want to waste too much time with this keyword because I have other fish to fry. I have bookmarking demon so I could dripfeed bms to the site over a few weeks.

    Thanks to anyone that responds! Help is definitely appreciated.

    Well done first of all - 5# position without any backlinking!

    I don't think that backlinking is the only answer here. Most probably you can do half of the job with tweaking your on-site quality signals.
    Tweak the title, write a better Meta descriptions for improved CTR, scan through the content, images to see if you have paid attention for all of the SEO relevancy factors.

    Most importantly, what is helping a lot is the website speed. Improving your website speed is a clear step in towards better user-experience, therefore a quality signal for Google that you're doing improvements to make your visitors life better.

    The last but not least, have you measured your PageRank flow? I'm guessing the page which is ranking #5 is the domain? Work on your site structure to squeeze more juice to the domain.

    Remove all the 404s if any!

    Following these few things, I'm more than confident that you're able to achieve the 3# or perhaps even #2 without doing backlinking.

    when you are not building any backlinks or doing any seo on your website and still it is rank 5 for a 90k competitive keywords. why you bother now to do seo or start link building? Just do whatever you are doing right now and gradually you will be no 1.
