What does this site have to gain traffic?

I recently came across this site: thegardenbugdetroit.com

It has no authority.
All content Ai.
Almost no images.
No author information.
Not optimized for speed.



Even so, the update did not hit and still gaining traffic. Do you see something strange?
 
There are lots of wonders in the world and so this is not surprising anymore. It will just leave us to wonder how and why?
 
A good indexer and a lot of posts
As per Ubersuggest they only have 177 referring domain backlinks, but I notice that they are ranking very high competitive keywords. You do mean they are using indexing service for their existing backlinks? If I make any mistake in asking pardon me.

Typical AI auto blog targeting a bunch of easy keywords, gaining some topical authority & using simple plugin for internal links,
Probably over rewarded by G or/and using a hidden PBN, nothing much
 
Sometimes you just can't tell but odds are hidden PBNs or some other shady method I would guess

We can give them a call and ask? Well I was checking the site history and it seems like it was a business, the Facebook posts are older than 2020 I think.
Maybe it's an expired domain with authority of an established business that got turned into a junkie blog

Interesting. That may be it then. Google rewards businesses.
 
It seems that the original website is this one: thegardenbugdet.com
But the 2016 facebook has the new website....
