To those who questioned my intentions & my motives,
I'm definitely not an SEO expert, so it never occurred to me that experts on this forum might reveal some questionable tactics. I was merely trying to figure out what they're doing that's working so well. I think we all have some pretty good ideas now. I do compete against O in one vertical, but considering how many verticals they compete in, it's hard to find an eCom co. that does not compete against them in some vertical. That's what made me think it would be of considerable interest to members here.
I had no idea of the NYT article about JCP until it was mentioned here.
I didn't post my homepage because I have a few. Now I'm concerned that there's some kind of risk of posting a HP on here as some of you have alluded to that.
As I started my post, I still commend O on a great SEO job. In my opinion, the link building is genius on that scale, and the on page is extremely well thought out & a great user experience too. When you get as many positive reviews as O does, you deserve the natural links that come with it. Maybe this is proof that even the biggest players need to guide the linking process.
I definitely appreciate everyone's input. It's been really interesting.
