Why are you people even discussing SEO when so many MFA/scrapers dominate?
In my widget sector, ripped-off old-style stuff reigns supreme or even better, have an Alibaba-style Chinese or Indian directory site with loads of genuine, but company-submitted link pages, and then their sites rule.
Google has not a clue...Bing seems to mostly at the moment...but to answer the orignal post, "Why would you trust anyone you did not know?"
Honestly, I hear the biggest amount of BS in bars every night regarding site construction and optimisation...I've tried, I've tested, I've done, I've discarded, I've proven all of their crap...since 1994!
