Query-mattress stores charleston sc

how does this site
charlestonmattresswarehouse dot com rank?

they have a bunch of satellite sites these are the ones I found, Im sure they have way more and are blocking spiders to crawl backlinks.

mattresswarehousetampa dot com
mattressstoretampa dot com
charlottemattress dot com
mattressstorelargo dot com
mattressstoremtpleasant dot com
mattressstoreclearwater dot com
mattresswarehouseftmyers dot com
mattressstoregastonia dot com



the sites doe have alot of blog posts however most of the content is thin and spun, same posts just different keywords and the articles are all re written

the sites have barely any backlinks other than their own network sites?

and these guys are outranking big brands like mattress firm and other big stores in the area

is it just because of the EMD and blogroll that they are able to rank both organically and locally?

Wow, this is an interesting one. The content on their homepage is all in images, no title tag, hardly any internal linking. Crazy.

They do have a handful of backlinks with relevant anchor text. I have to assume that is helping.

This will need some more digging around.

I would say the exact-match domain and links with exact-match anchor text like these ones :

blog.nfm.com/2013/09/29/mattress-comfort-levels-explained/ (blog comment spam)
votetags.info/business/2014/03/04/discount-mattresses-charleston/

They also have some good stuff:
yellowpages.com/north-charleston-sc/mip/charleston-mattress-warehouse-467896841 - has reviews


It looks like they are boosting the relevance of their Yellowpages listings from their other sites by linking to them:
mattressstoretampa.com/yellow-pages/

Thanks for looking into this, but the competition has plenty of reviews also, so maybe that private link network of duplicate sites works...thank google lol


also has anyone notice Yelp being top of searches? if you google the same keyword yelp is number 5 and all they have is a silly landing page titled Best Mattress stores in Charleston, SC - Yelp
