I have seen a few sites that are top listed sites but they do not have any content. How does one do this? I thought that content was king?
i suggest those site are using blackhat methods,so be careful so that you won't fall a victim of these angry search engines.
I don’t think the search engine will evaluate an empty site that even if you do a black hat on that site with no content it will not be ranked simply because it will be bypassed by the search engines. In getting to be top listed maybe there is some magic trick done there and I do not want to elaborate but definitely it is not a legitimate method and sooner or later the ranking will be back to normal with a corresponding penalty to the site.
No content= no ranking = no traffic= no money
I would never fall prey to this. I understand that they are most likely using black hat methods but find it incredible that a site with no content would rank so well.
That site domain is high ranking domain and it is for sell..
i think this site using 301 direction. but who know.
Because since google update panda, high quality content easy to get ranking

It could be any number of reasons. It could be that they are very old sites and have a lot of age and authority behind them. So even though they don't have much content on them, they have some very old and aged backlinks and have been around a long time. Some sites like that that do have a lot of age and old backlinks to them even though they don't have much content on them (or very good on-page SEO for that matter) can still be ranked high by Google despite all the Google Algo updates that punished thin sites and sites that engaged in black hat link building methods. Some old sites like that seem to be unaffected by those Algo updates simply because of their age and off-page SEO.
That site is mysterious because if there is no content, I wonder how it could be rated. And you say that it is on top of the list, that’s really a mystery. Maybe there is a reason like it was ranked in page 1 and probably in the top 5 of the links and then the owner decided to scrap all the contents for a change of niche. That’s one possible reason. But you said that you found a few sites with no content then that’s really a mystery.
