    I have a competitor for one of my websites. His site is ranked above mine for my keyword, yet his website is really unprofessional; he includes smileys in his text and speekz likee thiz.
    I know its kind of a small thing but is there anything I can do to knock him out of the rankings?
    Thanks

    lol no. Nothing illegal there and nothing against Gs terms. Sounds like he is doing something right though, so you could learn from him and do better and pass him up.

    You can out work him and get higher in the rankings. Not a popular answer but the most truthful one.

    Check where his backlinks are coming from and pay some dipshit at DP a couple of bucks to get your links also there.

    He may not know he is your competitor and may not care. Why don't you contact him and buy a link from his site to anchor text the keyword back to your site.

    Until a better site takes your ranking..... Its better to do as advised and check backlinks, on page seo, and domain name, and other factors....

    LMAO. Are you joking? Try building backlinks to your site and stop worrying whether or not your competitor has smileys on his site.
