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.

You want to create something that’s actually worth reading – not just a scrambled up splurge […]


    While it’s good to have words on your site, but copywriting isn’t just about filling up the page with words and moving on to the next task. There’s so much more to copywriting than hammering the keyboard for eight hours a day. Fulfilling the task requires a lot more than hitting the word count.


    Search Engine Optimisation is an ongoing process and in order to get the most out of your results, you need to have a long term strategy in place. On the other hand, almost all new websites can benefit from an SEO boost in their baby stages.
