Guys. I want you to weigh in your opinion about Google ranking with and without backlinking. I think we can all agree that backlinking is a great way to rapidly gain position for a website. That being said, quality content is written all the time that is never SEO optimized. In those cases, say for instance research papers and scientific data, they can be extremely well written and never backlinked, but that dosen't make them any less relevant. Do pages that are written very well and keyword rich rank well in the SERPs over time without backlinking? If you were to take such content and ping it, get it crawled, would it rank well? I want to hear about your experiences. Thanks.
