    This site still has huge traffic with bad & old SEO practices


    So, there's a website I made when I was still a complete SEO noob. It uses things like :

    -Every keyword is a hyperlink to a different page
    -It has 15 of the same pages where the only difference is the (example)state behind a specific keyword.

    For example:

    Page #1
    Get your fresh cannoli Arizona in our special stores in Arizona.

    Page #2
    Get your fresh cannoli Alabama in our special stores in Alabama.

    -Copied meta descriptions (I know this doesn't matter for SEO, but still)
    -<b> on every keyword.



    Overall it's just an incredibly unnatural website, so does anyone have an explanation for the insane traffic it has been getting for over a year now?

    External links, domain age, and lack of competition in local results/top keywords would be my guess.

    I agree with Alorenzo.... Domain age and lack of competition helps you maintain top ranking in Search Engines...
