    This site gets a ton of traffic in our area.
    I'm no SEO expert, but it looks like keyword stuffing or some kind of low-rent SEO tactic.
    What's the deal?

    Define what amount "ton" is support to be. From what I can see, SEO is moderate at best.

    Honestly, it's a really crappy site.
    People who run a business should pay to have better products.
    That thing is a code abortion that looks to have time-warped out of 1997.

    "Ton" means this site comes up in every search for real estate in this area.
    The guy is (apparently) making mega-bucks and he claims he gets lots of good leads from this awful site. I told my client I don't do sites like that.
    Would Google approve?
    TIA and Merry Christmas.

    People claim many things. It's usually absolute baloney.

    Sometimes it's not a matter of a site being "good" as much as it sucks the least, compared to the others it's competing against for placement. I'd have to know a lot more about the search queries, SERPs, etc.

    ... and you're sort of getting into what I do as paid work.
    So I mostly look at this, for free, from my own curiosity. But I need lots more info.
