How about this: I`m going to talk about two websites of mine: One is on a really easy niche, not really a lot of competition, not many valuable backlinks on competition, not even same niche (in fact, No. 1 has only some hundred drupal links that seem to have come from a single blast, spun content.) I`ve made a better website, great on-site SEO, unique content, hard internal interlinking, great backlinks from edu, same niche, high pr, a lot of diversity. I`m sitting on page 2 for a while. The second website is one that was actually made as a buffer. Has some spun content and some scrapebox blasts. about 1000 backlinks from which only 50 or so are ********. Now the second site is on page one for 2 keywords of over 10.000 exact match searches and no 1 place for a lot of keywords, raging up to 2900 monthly searches. Now this just messed my whole idea of SEO and even though I`ve ranked a few websites in my time it really funks my SEO thoughts. Can you tell me how and why would that happen ? I know the backlinks on both websites, they are both mine, so everything is as is, no hidden data to work with. The websites are both 5 months old, the one that is ranking currently has 1 month of continuous ranking, no changes.
