Will replicating my competitor's backlinks get me to his spot ie #3. Even 4 or 5 is better

    Hi

    I checked his backlinks and they are like 90 but then he had some web 2.o's redirected that have like 30 links each all handmade(looks like this)

    However its event based keyword and I dont have that much time. He started like 3 months ago and I have like one month.
    So i will be making them all in one month. While I silo my site with 20 t0 30 2000 words fresh content.

    He also got some really high quality links from authority sites. I dont know how. But they are like 2. News sites mainly(do follow)

    So is it possible?

    Im sure it will help but its not a guarantee you will out rank them.

    You should replicate your competitors links + do your normal SEO.

    That way you can beat them.

    Good Luck OP.

    It's a possibility but also remember the keyword in the domain, age, etc. all play a factor.

    Replicating what works is always a good idea, but understand that there are more factors in play than just backlinks (even though links are most important). For example, your on-page elements will determine the keywords that you do end up ranking for. Can you subtly re-write your competitors content and put it on your own website? Sure, but that may not "click". Just keep doing what you're doing, but do it better than them.

    He has more traffic than you. If you dump all his links on your site it may be too many too fast and cause you to drop not gain.

    Just because you can't see backlinks, it doesnt mean they don't exist. May be your competitor is using PBN links. Most of the quality PBN links providers block backlinks crawling spiders (like majesctis and ahrefs).
    So you can never be sure that you have 100% replicated the backlink profile of your competitor.

    My advice:
    Use the competitor's backlink profile as a reference, but keep building backlinks of your own. Throw some strong quality links in and see how it goes.
