I came across a familiar site (to me) while doing some keyword research that turned out to have a DA rank that really surprised the hell out of me. The domain name is not old, only registered less than 2 years ago. The website itself is visually a train wreck and I'm quite certain the one working on the site has no clue about seo since many factors point to that. The site doesn't rank too well otherwise. Sure, there is a lot of text, but nothing out of the ordinary I would say. So how come this site has a DA rank of around 28? Nothing seems to suggest it has to do with link buildning either so there must be some other explaination to this. Quite inspiring to see what can be acheived in such a short time frame with such small resources and would love to learn the secret he he.
