I was searching for some plumbing stuff I need done and I noticed that all the sites on the first page of results from google are owned by the same person or rather have the same contact number. And when I say all, I really mean ALL.
I only started getting relevant results on page 2.
I admit, I don’t know if this breaks any rules but it seems very morally wrong.
Leaving aside the morality of it, the person/company that owned these sites had really inflated prices. Up to 150% markup price. It’s insane.
Indeed has been double stuffing SERPs for years with multiple versions of the same page (or more if you count the fact that they also own Glassdoor and other brands) but you don’t hear me complaining about results for any search with “jobs” or tagging /u/johnmu in Reddit comments
In the SEO business, it is not the reputable companies that get to the top, it is the ones that know how to game the system. If the guy figured it out, why are you trying to report him? Learn from him.
