Nobody can answer exactly that how many backlinks you should create for SEO.
Not true. Anyone can give an answer. 584 is an answer. It doesn't mean the answer is correct.

However, SEO is an ever ongoing thing and your competitors are always busy trying to outrank you so you'll need to stay ahead of them.

SEO is a constant cat-and-mouse game.

There are no limitations of backlinks for a keyword to be in the first position. You need to build the backlinks in a proper manner and continuously. It should be real and quality backlinks should be there. Your content should be real and unique. These are some techniques which helps your keyword to be in the first position in google.

As stated, it depends on your keyword and site metrics so it is impossible to know. Also if you have a backlink from a really powerful site it may take just that one, or you could reach top with 500000000 from weak sites. There is no exact answer.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misunderstanding around how Google's search algorithm works.

Some of it is mysterious. Although I do not have a clear picture myself, there are a few things to note:

1. Google does show preferential treatment to its entities.

2. Manual review.
Manual review means, a human reviewer looked at your site and decided it should not be ranked well. Google has published an example of their guidebook used for training manual reviewers of websites. The guidelines are detailed and worth reading.

It is unknown to me how many sites get manually reviewed, but I imagine it would not be possible to review every new website - only a small portion of search results.

A manual review could result in your site being ranked a "low effort site" - a low quality search result.

3. Engagement: Do your visitors leave after 3 minutes or 2 seconds? Google algorithms take this into account.

4. Your Money or Your Life Sites
Google has a criteria for sites that give financial, personal and other types of advice that can seriously influence the well being of a search user : their health, financials or personal life.

These Your Money or Your Life sites must have information verifying their legitimacy: a banking site must have a way to contact the bank - by phone, email, etc. These sites should be secured (HTTPS). These are examples of criteria that may be used for these more serious sites.

These criteria may be applied to manual reviews of some sites. It is unclear how many sites undergo this scrutiny.

5. Site load speed. The current generation of online users are extremely impatient and will abandon a site beyond 3 seconds (40% of traffic). This is a whopping percentage and an issue worth resolving before applying any other steps for ranking your site's pages.

6. HTTPS - now more important to ranking a site and considered

7. Time.

These are just a few points to consider.

I didn't think that back links were the only thing that matters for top ranking. You need good seo and content that matches peoples search.

I was watching a Youtube video on back linking. It sad that many people go out and get many back links but he called them orphan back links and said that they didn't really help. Orphan back links many times are a single link on a page that has nothing to do with their site. Some times they are left or relevant sites such as this one but they are an orphan because it is as they just came in and commented and left their link never to return or actually be part of that conversation or site. He said if you want good back links to join forums and blogs of relevant material and actually be part of that community.
