    The $64,000 question is. Who was doing their SEO?

    I think their first mistake was buying a hotel in Southport.

    And they didn't even get a backlink in the article, so their sales and marketing acumen is clearly shit.

    So , without SEO they were not having any other plan to get customers ?

    That means, if you are a Good @ SEO then you can run a hotel.

    Coincidentally all the top ranked sites for most travel terms are big adwords spenders.

    I do not even have to check the search terms to see that there are no people searching for a hotel in Southport, so how have these bare minimum searches ruined their business? The only people staying in hotels in Southport are the local skag heads, it is not exactly holiday destination of the year.
