    I came accross a competitive keyword. And it seems that the first spot in google has 5,500 back links and the sencond spot has 40,000 backlinks.

    Why is the first guy ahead with less backlinks?

    Hard to say without seeing the sites but, the guy with the fewer links probably has better, more targeted and niche related links. Normally with a higher pr and authority value on the backlink connections, it will give the second guy more authority himself, with the additional factors of onsite keyword content density, relating to the keywords he is trying to rank for.

    Bottom line, he is doing something to add more authirty to his site and provide more value for the niche rank. Google is all about ' information ' and content is key to that. It is the most important factor their is, be it in connecting to it as a backlink or building it on your onsite page.

    Ok I see what you mean.
    It seems like the guy with 5,000 backlinks, 75% of them are coming from forum posts relating to that topic.
    And the guy with 40,000 backlinks about 75% is coming from xrumer..

    I find domain age extremely important as well... I know I have a heck of a time trying to outrank sites that have not much else going for them except a 10 year old domain...

    Forum posts related to that topic could have been done with Xrumer also...
