Ok, so i have a relatively new site, have optimised it by the book, gone for human content over keyword stuffing & dodgy tricks etc.
although listed, my site is nowhere to be seen in the relevant keyword searches,(sandboxed i suppose?)
so anyway, this morning im analysing the top ten sites on those searches to see what theyre doing better, and the number one site has no meta tags, no keywords and is using an image as their front page, (and on most pages in fact)
there are several other similar sites high in the searches with extremely low keyword densities, no repeats, & generally not optimised at all, but regular top ten search performers.
how does that work??
im also fairly sure its not by large traffic volumes to these sites, as its a fairly niche area we're in.
anyone throw any light on what theyre doing?
can supply details if required? ..suffice to say if you did a google keyword search for "Triathlon Camp" the site in question is top of the page (not including the sponsored link, which is prob my PPC - please dont click it, ;)
