Hi,
I think it is not possible because SERP also depends on the backlinks and traffic and success in these two can be achieved through promotion of the site only, and promotion can be done only through the off-page processes.

Exactly!
Previously there are only few websites exists on the web and only some companies with high profile will took the risk of investing on websites. Now the competition is too high that if you are not promoting the site you will hardly get the business and your poor competitors will took the delight.
You can check this fact by putting any search term (single search term) on the search box and see the keyword competition, it will show you the number of websites competing for that term.

well the problem is simple: the old sites, good websites that already have a high rank will they still be in a high position if they stop promoting live SEO for example?
