    Take a look at keyword "article publishing submitting" in G without quotes. The top link is an article on ArticlebaseDOTCOM. This article has over 30k visits and the author has claimed to make over 14k with it. I have no reason to not believe him but the money isn't my concern. What is my concern is the backlinks, and the fact that he is number one for a long time for that KW.

    The backlinks are pretty trivial, considering the fact that he has NONE, at least none recognized by G. So what is it then? I realize the domain has a ton of backlinks, so is it that plus the fact that he just lucked out and got the perfect amount of density for that keyword so that it is the most relevant link? Or is there some insider trading going on? What do you guys think?

    I see in Market Sam that for that phrase there is another article with only 1 bl that reads like a spun version of the other one. I am not asking what is right about this SEO optimization. I can see the techniques used, but they don't seem any different than many others that rank nowhere near as close. Very trivial.

    The domain ArticlebaseDOTCOM is a trusted one and the article is a subpage of the main domain, so it definitely gets some nice link juice.

    Yeah I read a lot about AP links, I hear about 50/50 mixed feelings about them though, plus there is just something that pisses me off about paying for backlinks, feel like I am cheating, I'll just use XR instead, because I am ethical.

    Hi, just to make sure, do you have SafeSearch off and are signed out of Gmail and any other google service when running a search for that? I Know it may sound stupid but it is an easy thing to forget.

    Can't understand well.......If the answer relies on the well known domain name then why this particular article?the other articles also are quite thirsty to drink the juice.Is not it?

    Probably if you analyze it you will find that article has just a few or no links, but the main domain has millions upon millions of them and the other posters are correct, that immense link juice is filtering down, but also because its probably not facing any competition.

    If you made a blog tomorrow with that article title as your domain and gave it a few hundred high PR bookmarks, you could likely take that spot and send that guy wondering where his next $14k is going to come from.
