Can You Outrank Big Sites? Yes. Here's Proof.
I was recently looking for a Nutribullet Review and came across some really interesting Google results I wanted to share. This guy that is ranked #1 has a very simple website that outranks everyone else, even the "big sites" that everyone fears, Amazon, YouTube, news outlets, and even the exact match domain website.
From my research, it looks like his website has been running for just about two and a half years. He looks like a normal type dude, and also notice that his website is SUPER SIMPLE. It's just a blog on Genesis Framework, with a white background and black text. He is using a simple static home page. Nothing fancy.
He is currently outranking
This is exactly the kind of website you are building here at Wealthy Affiliate.
So yeah, you can outrank anybody in the search engines, even as a totally average blogger.
Update 2019: Now I have website that does it too! There was some speculation in the comments here if the guy was using backlinking techniques, but I was able to achieve the same results, without any backlinking at all! >>> Proof
...just took me 4 years to do it LOL
