    Hey guys,


    After reading a lot from BHW i came to a conclusion that good amount of content can help a site's rank. but i just found a site ranked in google which has one page of content,a privacy policy page and contact us page. the content is aroung 600+ words ,the niche is related to a product so one review of it has been added. The competition for the keyword is huge!

    how is this possible? any idea guys?

    I think you are misjudging the competition. What is the domain age? EMD?

    Simple, "adding content to improve ranking and value" is over rated. I have numerous top ranked sites which are one page.

    301 redirect + tons of backlinks.

    Just look at the sites ranking for "viagra".

    we can't answer that question definitely until we can test it - send us the URL in question and we'll tell you why it outranks its competitors

    The above shows the competition.
    It has the EMD with additional words at start and end.
    very competitive, well known keyword.


    not sure if i can reveal the keyword and the site, it may upset the owner. he may be from BHW. :)

    i didn't mean that to be the SEO competition, i know that is the adwords competition! There are a ton of other sites ranking for that keyword!

    the keyword is really competitive for CPA offers. The site has an ad for CPA too!
