    Hello there,

    I often see wordpress blogs with a single post and no inbound links ranking in google's top 10, among authority sites. Can someone shed light on this google's weird behavior?

    like, a site that has the exact search term as a domain name? In a niche with low competiton/searches?

    301 redirect? You can never assume that you can see all of a website's backlinks.

    Sounds to me like there must be really low competition for that particular keyword.

    Low competition. Wordpress is loved by Google so when you have an exact keyword match domain, then you'll defenitely rank high.

    That's right, with the exact match domain. There are a lot of them, you can find plenty of examples yourself.

    Yeah dude, google LOVES those exact matches now. I have a bunch with 1 article that rank with pretty much no links. Its really dumb. Google seems to be regressive to what MSN was a year ago.
