I've replied several times to virtually the same question, can you confirm if you've even read my previous responses. I'm not going to waste my time replying to these every couple days if you're just going to repost the same thing over and over.

If you can't confirm you are actually reading these replies, I'm going to restrict your posting rights. We can't have the same question asked over and over, and answered over and over, it's a waste of everyones time.

I apologise for causing so much trouble. I have read the replies but no one has been able to tell me how this site can have thousands of reciprocal links arranged but have none appear on the site. The reason I asked again was I was hoping that someone could actually anwer the question. I appreciate there have been replies but as I said none of them actually answer the question!

Fair enough, it would be better if you replied to those threads saying that was not the answer you wanted so we could try and elaborate.

No one but the people who do the SEO for that site will know how they got to number 1. We can only speculate.

I would imagine they got thousands of backlinks by link brokering, as I said in my previous replies. They have probably purchased links on hundreds, even thousands, of other web sites and this has boosted their ranking in google. For a highly competitive keyword (something in the financial industry) I would guess it would take over $50,000 in JUST purchasing back links to even approach a top 25 position.

Please keep in mind that the number of links shown using the link:domain.com query is not the actual number of links, but merely a sampling. The actual number of links can be better obtained by searching for "domain.com"

It is very off putting for a new member of the forum to be shot down by antagonistic responses. I am new to this type of thing and was only asking for help. I apologise if I have behaved in an inappropriate manner.

Look at this from our persepective, you've asked the same question repeatedly, it has been answered repeatedly without a thank you, or a "that's not what I was looking for", instead, you've just reposted the same question worded differently as if to ignore the fact we took the time to answer a question which can not be answered.

If we knew how that site got to #1 on google, I can assure you I would not be sitting here running dreamincode.net for little or no profit. I would be charging thousands of dollars to get people to that #1 spot.

Nobody but the person that did their SEO knows how they got to #1, and I would imagine it's a very closely guarded secret. There's no reason to be condescending, symphonic was being sarcastic. Which, given your question, was a valid response.
