    So guys after lots of thinking and research I havr reached to the conclusion best contents win the war.
    I have created lots of great content for my website, initially they were not performing better than the big brands, but now from January 2017 my contents are on the first page of Google and the first link.
    The news website and other big websites are behind my link. I didn't build any backlinks for those contents.
    Also one of my content naturally now having 15 PA.

    Content always work no doubt about that....rest of the things are accessories to make it produce the results faster (provided we are only looking
    at whitehat ways here).

    Damn sure, You can't stay too much time in high ranking by focusing only on content.

    You need to concentrate on getting backlinks too

    Great content is essential to rank well. And Google now seems to be ranking better content higher.

    But links are essential too. Great content can perform better with great links :)

    i believe great contents initially take time to rank but later on they outperform big brands. And no one knows what is better except Google.

    Do you think his ranking will eventually go down if he ignores his backlinks?

    Just in 11 days of 2017, my old quality contents are now started to generate traffic and performing better in Google.
    Also when things are natural things are great for long periods of time.

    Of course. You have to know some people eagerly waiting steal your idea (content). They will present it better than you. (Stolen goods always taste sweeter than those honestly come by).

    Google won't help you if they did it properly.

    In that case, your hard work will give credit to others or you have to share with others.

    you can't claim copy right issue to everybody. Because those rules may differ from every place.

    In that case, only off page optimization (backlinks) will help you.

    PA =/= Google rank
    A higher PA has 0, zilch, nada to do with your Google ranking. Deindexed sites can still show a high PA, Google won't touch them.

    So OP, you're saying my guides(8,000+) words in a HIGHLY competitive niche will rank higher than sites that have a mountain of backlinks, simply because the content is better?

    Depends on the niche. In finance, insurance and other difficult niches you would not have a chance with such approach.

    Quality content will always get you further then if you have anything else in my opinion.
