Sloppiest SEO Work Competition. “Website coming soon!” for 8 years
In this post you can see that all you need for ranking are just three things: “Website coming soon!”, the right domain name and to live it for a while… This is another example of how domain age combined with keywords in the domain still yields ranking results in 2021. SEO recommendations vs reality.
Below you can see what I found after checking the position for “Galway SEO” keyword.
And here is the result if you misspell “GalwaySEO” instead of “Galway SEO”. Nice, isn’t it?
The first result is their Twitter account, #4 – their Facebook page and #5 is the position of the website.
Now, I want to show you the really cool part: the local business results.
As I do not agree “coming soon” (for 8 years) to be on that place, I did what I believe is right:
Reviewed and reported to Google.
I am very curious to see if, when and what effect it will have.
GalwaySEO.com is an online business, but it has never worked as such! It is actually just a parked domain, with the possible purpose of selling it at some point. It should not be ranked in google local business!
I know that the “Candidate” #2 is very similar to January 2021 Sloppiest SEO Candidate #1 but we wanted to include it, because it shows us another good example of the controversy of SEO recommendations vs reality.
There is a Scottish proverb that says “Do not judge by appearances. A rich heart may be under a poor coat.”
I like it a lot, but when I look for a service or product my judgment always begins with appearances. For example, if you offer an SEO service, I will check how your own website is doing. I will never take advice or buy a service from someone who doesn’t apply it on their own website.
Nowadays, it is very trendy for everyone to write about Core Web Vitals. The posts are usually more or less the same, full of new terms, but they repeat what the official statement says. Here you can see a brief and slightly different opinion.
