    Hi,
    I'm new here as a registered user, while I'm reading threads here for a long time now. In the last weeks I tried to figure out reasons why a small site with a crappy backlink structure is able to rank in top 4 positions for a high competitive keyword. I'm swiss based and found one particular website ranking that high for the keyword "kredit" on google.ch. Ok, there is a matching domain, but with only moderate on-page SEO and a poor backlink structure how is it possible to beat many better equipped websites?! I couldn't detect any "hidden" techniques such as massive juice via 301-redirecting other domains to the target domain or so. I think this is a very interesting case and would be very happy if you could help me find any solution for this. Maybe we can discover a useful method we don't know yet and to to use on our own projects.
    I' curious about your answers and thank you in advance!

    Could this be achieved with a url redirect?

    I get your criticism - just removed the URL. Nevertheless, does anybody have an idea regarding causes for such a high ranking without wether reasonable on-page nor off-page SEO?

    Your question is like asking a stock market speculator what the "cause" for George Soros' success is.

    Thanks for removing the URL, but from the information you left about your competitor I can still ID it, so you're still outing your competition instead of working to beat them.
