There is a new photographer in the area that came on the scene probably 6 months ago.
A search engine result of xxxx photographers puts her first on the page, even though she has not been in business very long in this area. Don't know if she has been in business somewhere else as her website doesn't discuss that.

How is that possible ? Is there some way to put one's self at the very top of the search engine results with only being in the area for such a short time ? I always thought that maturity of one's online presence as well as search engine opt was what caused that to happen.

Thanks.

Maybe she didn't hang up after getting one of those Search Engine Optimization calls.

That's SEO. She either learned it herself or hired out.

I've heard many different opinions on that from members here. Most of them negative.

She wants to be "an affordable Rancho Cucamonga photographer." Does that concern you? It wouldn't concern me at all.

Always check an seo company that contacts you to see if they come up first in google. Most don't make the first ten pages.

Could just be something she wrote that agrees with google and nothing more.

Yeah that's a total fallacy......I guess lying is o.k. A review of her galleries show
very little past work. I know ALL of the photographers in this area for the past
15 years. She just popped up one day. Strange.

Nope, doesn't concern me. I was just curious how someone goes to the top
so fast. Is there a method or a SEO company artificially placing her there or ?

She appears at the very top, along with my business and another
photographers in the area. All of the results look the same, no difference
to appear as a paid ad. How does one tell if it's paid ?

What search term are you using. Also, are you logged into Google/Gmail when you do the search? That will skew the results.

Also if you have been looking at her site recently google starts to remember things you have searched for and what sites you opened on those searches.

Google on a different computer if that is the case.

SEO business... there are tons of ways to get to the top... Call her and ask her how much she is paying to be there.
If she says nothing she is lying
