    Question about backlinking again


    My competitor is ranking number 2 on google with 0 backlinks. How does one website managed to rank so high in a short time (less than a year) with no backlinks?

    I have been using moz free tool to check competitor's backlinks. Is this tool reliable and accurate? I have included the link below and hopefully some SEO expert could answer my question.

    It is important to know that not only backlinks are a solely responsible for ranking a website. There are a lot more factors which together contribute towards top search ranking. Moz's free tool is not at all bad, for more precise results, you can use other free tools at the same time and compare their results to get a better answer.

    Majestic and Ahrefs are probably the best ones to find competitor's backlinks.

    With O backlinks is not possible to stay on ranking no.2, I think your can't analysed properly.
    Free tools is nothing to check competitors backlinks.
