    Why is this site ranking #1 for keyword - government leadership? It has no links with 'government leadership' keyword in the anchor text.

    govleaders.org/articles.htm

    does anyone have any ideas?

    No competition nor monotary gain in that market. Simple to do when there is no one else pushing for the top knotch.

    pretty much hit the nail on the head with that. What would one even think about marketing in that niche? I can't think of a single thing aside from maybe briefcases for bribe money.

    We can't say exactly want Google want. May the site is very popular in people.

    If you look at this site and can't figure out why it's ranking #1, then I would advise you to give up SEO marketing or get back to the drawing board.

    And this site is the top result for sites with anchor text links for "government leadership".

    Type in inanchor:"government leadership" an you'll see.

    Besides all of that, why would you even want to rank for this keyword? There's no real monetary value like Aftershok pointed out.
