    Someone posted a thread earlier asking if it was possible to rank a site top of google using no backlinks. Most people agreed that it is possible if the keyword isn't too hard and if on-page is really good.

    What type of keyword difficulty are we talking about when people say "not too hard of a keyword".


    I want to make some articles for keywords in my niche I found with decent volume, but I want to invest my link building in my higher volume and more profitable keywords.

    So I'm just wondering what the approx cutoff would be for ranking a post with no backlinks.

    Under 30? 25? 20? I made a poll if you want to do that too.

    Thanks!

    If you are building links to your site then you can set up your structure so link power transfers between pages.

    So for example -

    external links -> high volume keyword page -> LSI page

    LSI page will still get juice from the backlinks you build y=to the high volume keyword page.

    YOu can link like this throughout your site with in content links and you can distribute power of your links like this.

    Let me share you my experience. Few months ago, I've created a website with only 2 articles.

    I have't added even one backlink to this website. yet I managed to rank in the first page(pos 7), and haven't even targeted this particular keyword. Acording to kwfinder, the keyword is 27 difficulty.

    Hell, I even managed to get one commision, but amazon banned my acc because it wasn't fitting their requirements.

    And I ranked for the main keyword in the first page as well with 28 difficulty and about 1k searches(weird I know, but if I'd tell you these keywords, you'd believe me).

    @davids355 what about if the domain and pa of the site are 1, brand new site. What kw difficulty?

    @gman777 wow that is pretty cool! What was thr volume on the 27 keyword? Why did amazon ban you? I'm using amazon affiliates too.

    That one was a long tail so about 70-90 searches. They banned me cuz my website sucked. I didn't had enough articles and the theme sucked imo.

    The funny thing is that if I was sticking with that site, I'd make at least $300-500.

    Do you have a difficulty number for low to medium? are you talking like 25? That's cool it ranked 10 minutes after uploading. Was this built on a fresh domain, or an expired domain with some DA already?

    KW difficulty around 27 to 30, but i honestly don't look about this, more who is on page 1.
    And the domain is fresh new
