fairly remote, little villages
where there's no/low competition?
They rank for any placename, region, county, area, town, village, etc you can think of, even big cities where there must be plenty of competition.
Part of the SEO Co's service is to generate (dynamically? although .html suggests static content) 10,000's of pages with identical copy, just varying the placename.
