A Short Story

An example which will help you to get it better. A few years back, one of my friends was working as a freelance SEO consultant for a company, and the worst part is he got scammed by that client.

He was new to the freelance world, was ready for any client and the client had something different for him in his mind.

The client was a young guy who was looking to build a tour bus business in his city. The client wanted a website and proper monthly SEO. They did a partition to start website work first, the client agreed to pay him around $500 before the SEO work.

He started the work and after a few days website work completed and the client paid him with a fake business cheque. He went to the bank to cash it in, the bank gave him the bad news that this business doesn't exist, they asked me for his phone number, he picked and said they had the wrong number.

After that client blocked him from every communication source. His name was not that what he told my friend. Now it is the revenge time for my friend, he quickly put up a Blogspot blog, gave a title " XX SCAM" and wrote in full detail whatever the scenario was. After a few moments, it indexed in the top 3 of Google for his business name. This is because of the company's name was unique and had zero competition.

This long story was just to prove a point in front of you guys, it is possible to rank for those keywords with zero links in the case of zero competition. But don't expect any actual traffic for it.

Many blogs have become successful without link building.

Yes, It is possible to rank in Google without building backlinks, but only for uncompetitive keywords. Some people can ignore Link Building but healthy activity is to build links, otherwise, it's a chance. If you want to grow traffic on your website, building links is necessary.
