When I found the amusing little customer bait web site “googlefight,” it was about an application where you could see two search terms “duke it out.”
Well, it appears that the term “google fight” could apply to another situation. Dean Hunt maintains a blog. Dean Hunt posts to his blog on a regular basis and obviously, does very well with the search engines. So well, that he actually got an email from a company that USED to rank well on a keyword and, when Dean’s blog beat them on the term, they sent him a letter telling him to remove his site so their site would again be number one.
There are those who question whether this is real or not. After all, the guy is in the SEO biz… and his post has generated quite a bit of media buzz…..
So is this is publicity stunt?Â Is there really anybody who would cry “foul” for being beaten fair and square?Â (Gee, when I put it like that… maybe this ISN’T a publicity stunt!)
