I have seen a few sites which instantly rank on some competitive keywords with 0 Backlings and genuine content.
Hahah, it's possible bro, but I'm pretty sure that those rankings won't be permanent, just a matter of time to kill them and rank better.
But bro these site get lakhs of traffic on Trending Topics. Let's say..Paytm Payments Bank or any Jio News.. Sites like Jiocare.net, onepromocode instantly rank the articles..even on better than News websites..Their should be something I believe..
You said "0 backlinks and genuine content" right @Rishabh?
It's possible to rank with this, but we can overtake them with "Good backlinks and genuine content".
