    This is the website :nookandcrannymai its on the number 1 spot for 3 pack on google and number 9 spot on organic

    for the term house cleaning Atlanta

    I dont see but maybe 3 backlinks.

    I could understand maybe for maps the citation factor but why Organic ?

    Number 9 on organic, it's nothing... Do you realize how easy it is to get to 9th spot of google for that term if you use the right backlinks ?

    first thing you should not write someone else's site here so edit and remove the domain now as what i can see the results are there just because of the high domain authority so it is not a tough term to rank for in top 10.

    If it's not hiding links (i doubt it is), then the authority is almost 0. It's easy to rank on the first page, try ranking for top3, it's a whole different ball game.

    its pretty competitive for that term in a major market like Atlanta. Also what Authority would the domain have if it has no links or anything to it ?

    They have no backlinks that the thing , and the term is actually pretty difficult to get and highly competitive among the 200 or so cleaning companies in Atlanta .

    No it's not, it's easy to get in top 10 for that term (if you know what you're doing), from what I've seen... But what do I know, I've only ranked tens of sites for thousands of first page terms.

    I meant the yelp,craiglist and groupon results in top 10.

    Also check ahrefs they have 15 good links pointing towards them with good anchor text which IMO are enough to rank them in top 10.

    Most big companies hire SEO agencies who really suck at SEO, that's why.

    Their backlinks aren't anything out of this world(the ones I checked), BUT what I did see is they have 28 reviews in Google+ and 5 reviews on one of their citations website. Those reviews, are what is helping them be #1 in the local pack.

    They are ranking well for many other KWs as well, according to what I saw in Semrush(and searched).

    yeah but that does not seem to be what would point them to number 1 spots . I have a site that has over 70 reviews to no avail :( . I really dont get it. like the 3 top ones are all the same no real backlinks or anything that would make them above the rest.

    yes but the seo profile this website has even the worst SEO agency could beat it. There is nothing there. No backlinks, nothing that stands out. especially better than the 10 pages of listings behind them. Most of them are all much better seo'd

    I've checked and the websites below it are almost the same authority wise, this website has way overoptimized title that's one of the main reasons why it ranks so high.

    yeah the top 3 have very similar profiles. Which I do not get. But after that there is way more authorized sites than them . If all it took was an over-optimized title and 4 backlinks then there would never been a need to anything more.

    The whole niche is of low competition, it's very easy to get on the first page for that keyword.
