    Anyone here ever see websites in their niche that seem to do very little yet rank high for no apparent reason?

    Sometimes in my niche I come across sites that look like they're from the 90's and with thin content yet they somehow rank high.

    I have faced such sites in the past when worked as outreach seo. They are basically non-commercial. Sometimes when I asked webmasters regarding buying df-links, they responded they didn't know what is a df-link or even seo.

    how do you hide pbn links,
    is it as simple as editing the robot, or something else is going on..?

    For adult niche this is pretty common. I've spent months trying to figure out why the heck those 90's sites kept outranking me. So, I found out some cloaking tricks and fought them back with tons of bad links from crap 2.0 blogs of mine.

    And of course buying domains with their keywords plus 30-40 articles 500+

    For last... Using H1 and H2 with all of their domains.

    BostonUpscaleFemaleCompanion... I did titles like Phone Numbers Updated BUFC... plus anchors.

    It works. You should try it.

    In ranking the domain age matters...In your case, there might be very few websites competing in your niche so the old one is always preferred over the new ones.

    This is a Myth. New domains are weak for first few months after that all the same

    Aged domains do matter. If they never have been penalized, better. Some niches G seems to give a shit about BH or mobile-friendly.

    If they don't have any backlinks they mean nothing. Age alone has very weak importance. Here is the results of 2M Keywords in top 10 analysis

    On-Page Vs Off-Page

    Note : This is page age not Domain age and it goes with backlinks

    Again, New domains are weak, aged domains aren't strong cuz of their age but cuz of their backlinks. If they don't have backlinks, they worth nothing.

    they rank mainly cause of 100% white hat, strong link lists and stuff.

    true. as they are non-commercial, they dont blast their power to amazn.to and shit.
    so all links = stay internal.

    atm, I contacted a ton of them for my climbing project. I get impressive HIGH DR links . its just swetwork but it will pay off in 4 weeks :)
