Tecmark Outranks Google?!



Ok, ok, so “Claim Google Places Listing,” isn’t exactly a competitive keyword. Not at all. But on Friday we blogged about that very thing and this morning if you type that phrase into Google… well see for yourself:

tecmark outranks google

Yes, we’re outranking Google (as of this morning at least) for a search containing one of its brand terms. I actually went as far as to having colleagues double check it and treble checking that I had all my search history turned off.

It seems it’s certainly genuine, though it remains to be seen how long it lasts!

It’s nice though, however brief a fling it might be, that Google considers us more relevant for that term than it considers its own business listing centre.

Aww… we love you too, Google.
