How did ScreamingFrog just outrank Google by just duplicating Google's PDF Guide on their site?!

    Any thoughts on what ranking factors are at play here that helped Screaming Frog outrank Google using their own PDF against them? ;)

    I saw you are searching in UK version of Google, and maybe that page got more power/juice than Google.

    I don't know if anyone thinks this but I have a serious doubt that after Matt cutts the search team is at lost. For multiple niches I am seeing forums on page 1, even when you search for 2017.. results that have not been updated since 2015 are showing up on first page. Its like they are going back on there own quality guidelines.

    Could be something to do with the misspelling of the search term.

    On .com everything is in order, screamingfrog nowhere to be found, it's just on .co.uk.
    Actually it isn't misspelling, "optimisation" is used by the Brits.

    I'm all out of ideas then :) Like you said then probably because it's .co.uk.
