    I've checked the first results that pop when I search for "Free iPhone unlock" on google.
    The first website has a lot of backlinks:

    The second one has almost nothing:

    How?
    I really want to rank in the niche and I don't know what to do.

    You are trying to decode google's ranking algo which everyone is trying to play around with. Sites cannot rank without backlinks, so, when you say a domain has no backlinks, all you are saying is, the domain lacks publicly viewable backlinks. Enter the domain url into google's search and you will get an idea on what they have.

    115 seems plenty to me, especially if they are HQ PBN links. Plus 3rd party external sites like ahrefs and majestico don't always find all the backlinks a site has.

    them 115 links could have 100k+ tier 2 links pointing to them too.
