Power of Backlinks Demonstrated
Note: Before you read this post I am not in anyway saying you should do this. This is purely an example, with proof, to show what backlinks can do.
Do you know how powerful backlinks are? Sure they can help you rank well in the Search Engine Results Page (SERPs), but did you know that with backlinks alone you can maniuplate the SERPs?
I have in the past shown examples of ranking a website for a keyword phrase that is not included on that site, and that alone goes against the very nature of what we all learn about SEO. Now there are reason why this can be done, the more competition in a niche the harder it will be.
However I can show you something even more amazing, ranking a site for a keyword that is both not mentioned on the website AND has no relevance at all to the websites content.
Go visit Google and search for:
st louis aids cure
And you should see something like this:
What we have here is 4000 forum profile links with the anchor text 'st louis aids cure' being pointed at www.stlouisautoglass.net, and that has resulted in them ranking for this phrase. They obviously have NOTHING to do with this search phrase.
Now you are not going to get results like this from some dodgy Xrumer blast on Fiverr from some noob, so don't rush off and order 10,000 profiles (done wrong you can really mess things up).
However I hope that helps to show you how powerful just backlinks can be. Imagine if you added them to a consistent and high quality backlinking structure...
