Today I met with a friend and he is saying that ranking on 1st page of Google without any backlink is possible. I discussed it for 2 hours.

And, he proved me because he is ranking for most competitive keyword No#1 on Google without having too many backlinks.

He made a single backlink on a highly relevant website and ranking No#1. How is it possible?

Everyone says high-quality good backlinks is the key to rank higher. But what are the characteristics of the good backlinks?

How to find out which links are good are working for me?

    Hey Amarjeet. Good question. I think the backlink on the highly relevant website (ranking No#1) certainly helped. In regard to your headline question - I would say...no. Link building is still the key component to ranking today. Other factors contribute, of course, but without relevant, useful and authoritative backlinks, you won't rank as highly as those that have them. Happy to hear other thoughts! Have a good day!

    IF the particular link have the same Target keyword it will automatically rank in first page and also the content must be unique.

    So that's not ranking without a single backlink? He has links.

    And it's probably not that competitive of a keyword.

    Have you checked the link profile?


    And how competitive is the keyword?

    If you find an easy keyword, put out great content and allow it to have the time to rank you can do it without any backlinks of your own.


    You'll still get natural links from other sites, but no links that you created.


    It's not only possible, it's my SEO strategy.

    Hi Amarjeet
    There are many ways to get on top of the google page and backlinks are only
    one of them, Its not the sole thing to be on the first page. Worthy meta descriptions for each page, targeted keyword in the URL, Adding keywords to your post strategically, Posting Long Contents play an important role too
    Many Regards

    It is possible in 2019. Google is ranking on the basis of quality content and On-page optimization, but it is a really tedious job to do.

      No, it's not, unless, as mentioned before, it's a keyword with little competition.


      If you want proof, google a competitive term and go to pages 2 and 3 and look at the pages that show up there. You will find quality content and good optimization but fewer links than #1...

    He must have earned some backlinks from high DA sites and his website's onpage optimization must be up to the mark . Another thing is that may be the keywords he has targeted has a low competition. Backlinks are still key factors to rank website. These can be earned in many ways such as Guest Posts, Q/A, Forums, Citations and many more.

    You need lots of traffic to do this. I mean huge traffic.

  • If the keyword is not that competitive, the site has relevant, unique content, and it is well optimized for the targeted keyword, then the site can rank highly, even with few backlinks.
