    Hi,

    I did a backlink scrape of competing websites, I used scrapebox for the same, it found aprox 6000 links from 10 different domains. I run the PR checker and only used domains with PR3 and UP.

    Next, I did a expired domain crawl. and found say 10K expired domains. Most have TF 15 - 20 and CF 20 - 45 - however, the links are most spammed, or they have only links from a few web directories or some websites which seems not to have been updated since 1998!

    How the hell can the TOP 10 domains in a "very difficult to rank" niche rank there with such poore quality of BL? Did I miss something here?

    link laundering is a kind of tiered linking within his site,using the external links.I said,there is a chance,though i am sure.You need to know that ranking in Google is not just about backlinks. Backlinks play a big role but it is not everything. If he is getting lots of traffic from various resources and the bounce rate on his site is low, he would still be able to rank decently even if he has a bunch of dead or irrelevant backlinks.Well optimized or diversified backlinking plan is the key.
