How Many Links Do I Need to Rank Page 1?

The best indication of how many backlinks you’ll need to rank well for a keyword is how many backlinks each of your competitors for that keyword have. You should add up how many links point to each of the pages (the specific pages displayed in the search results and not the total number of links that those sites have) ranked in the top 10, ignore the numbers from the webpage with the most backlinks and the webpage with the least backlinks, and divide the total by 8. This is only a rough estimate, and doesn’t account for the quality of those backlinks, however, if you get as many backlinks, of equal quality, as the average number that the sites currently ranking well for that keyword have, then it’s reasonable to expect your site to rank well also.
