    Hey guys,

    I was checking out some keywords and this site seems to rank for very competitive keywords with apparently no backlinks.
    Site is (hxxp://loansbadcredit.co.uk). It is ranking for bad credit loans.

    Yahoo site explorer does not show any.Nothing showz up on seomoz..

    I dont get it!

    What are you talking about?

    It has 13 gov/edu backlinks + 6336 backlinks for the entire site + 5773 backlinks for the index page.

    I'd say that's good backlinking. :)

    ye sometimes sites rank like that, but with little backlinking you could beat it (depends though)

    Unless a Google employee was bribed to rank the site (which can't be done, since it is an automatic algorithm) it definitely has links.

    The site definitely has backlinks - many from high PR blogs, seemingly from blog-farms...

    Anybody know which network he may be using - saw some good PR6 and PR5 blogs in the network...

    Obviously this type of backlinking is doing wonders for his ranks. So anybody know which network he is using?

    Thanks

    Finance is one of my niches, this is how they are ranking loansbadcredit.co.uk for the kw [loans bad credit]

    Apart if from being a a close EMD, the owner is either buying links on high pr pages or just owns them on a different IP

    Example: website: www.hsdyz.com (pr6) has the anchor text "loans bad credit" hidden nicely in the first paragraph. Just go to the page and do a search for "loans bad credit". Notice, this website has absolutely nothing to do with loans, its about travel in Mongolia.

    What can you take away from this? High PR contextual anchor homepage links are very valuable.

    How can you do this? Look for high pr pages and buy a link from the owner or better yet, create your own high PR network :D

    Maybe you are not looking properly at the rankings and links properly. Site looks fine or I would say awesome to me.

    Whoever's network it is, it is awesome. Similar, maybe the same network is being used to put a site in top 5 for another highly competitive keyword I was working. I saw it and got some great ideas actually. Dozens and dozens of PR5, PR6 sites.
