website ranking: Why Some Websites or Pages Rank Well With No Content - 01/02/19 01:34 PM
I'll be honest, this drives me nuts! When I research a community or area and find the first 10 spots on Google with NO CONTENT! What? Doesn't this break all the laws of SEO? Well, yes and no. There are about 200 factors when it comes to SEO rules and ranking factors so no content on a page is just one of those, albeit an important one. 
But why do these pages rank?
And it could be any site too, Homes.com, Market Leader, Real Geeks, Wordpress, etc... That may not be the deciding factor at all. So what it is?

~ Algorithm Foreplay ~
We all know what foreplay is but many don't know what an ALGORITHM is. According to the WikiPedia  "In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is an effective method expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function.
