    A former colleague sent me this: https://www.reddit.com/r/SEO/comments/25ejiw/how_is_a_google_doc_ranking_1/

    Seems pretty do-able. Maybe a good option for people with low funds.

    If you're going to leverage the authority from Google as the author describes, it might be worth considering targeting something highly competitive. Potentially a Pokemon Go guide or something. That'd be highly shareable.

    Taking a look at the backlinks in Ahrefs, the oldest link goes back to Jan 2016.

    I've seen similar results with Google My Maps, but I think they shut that loop hole down.

    People game Google Doc's all the time. In the right situation it can be a smart move. Just depends on the audience, content, and niche... and how you intend to convert that into money.
