    I am tracking one site-
    Code:
    pet*shopinkolkata.com
    It has only 6 inbound and 4 outbound link. Nearly no content, lots of pics and a heavy site. Eight month old. But it is in third position on google for "pet shop in kolkata" keyword (115,000 competition) and on first page of yahoo and msn.

    I can't interpret this result. How does it is possible??

    Can anybody explain to me - a noob in SEO.

    Your answer is twofold:

    1) There's no competition. I get 63,000 results in the UK.
    2) The site has the keywords in the domain. 9 times out of 10, as much as google wants to claim it is the most relevant engine, having the keywords in the domain is usually enough to swing it. Do a search for eradicate wasps, i have the top site :) no work there
