Huge amounts of social proof of varying descriptions built up over an extensive period of time. I suspect that most of them have got pretty hot SEO teams, too.

I think Google once said it this way...

I think many are missing the point of the discussion from the beginning with Contemp. So I'll do my best to address it. Major Brand Companys that are Nationwide have "Authority" & "Trust" in their industry overall, so they rank well just on those two factors alone in most cases.

Plus major brands have big marketing budgets and usually do 100's of thousands of dollars in PPC alone not including SEO, and traffic is a big factor in ranking as well. Yes, you heard right, the amount of traffic a site is getting, turns into activity, and if the pages are sticky enough, that is a huge plus for them as well, because the major SE's are crawling the big brands site pages a lot more. If the national brand is providing fresh content all the time, that's another big plus because the SE's are there crawling their pages even more to see where they should rank.

Contemp said that MIDAS ranks well nationally, but not locally!? Not sure exactly what you mean Contemp? You mean locally for each city they have a physical store in nationwide, or locally where thier main offices are, not sure!?

Anyway, if they are not ranking well in their local marketplaces where each of their stores are, they need to focus on Local SEO for each location they are trying to get ranking for. Yes, local SEO is a specialized field and there are many things that need to be done to rank well locally too.

E.G. Make sure there is a google places for each office in it's city, be listed in all the major local online directories, and optimize for google maps. Having seperate PPC campaigns for each MIDAS office nationwide that have the local city and state in the the keyword terms. This is the jist of it, and again, local SEO is a specialty in itself, and should not be overlooked by National or local brick and mortar businesses especially.

Big brands have a lot of other sites linking to them- that's the first basic thing, lot of returning visitors and all in all search engine knows. The algorithms have become smart enough.

While I love to see salespitch turned on the forum rules to post links to forum posts. I know there are some exceptions, but not in this case. Please explain to me why. If you see a message with a link to it, even though it is pure attitude I think I can post links on the forum and post a request spam. You can make a blog or an article and post a link.

In my view big brands do rank well because of their name in the market. Since they easily come in mind when we think of products and services provided by them. Many People visit their sites, so indirectly it is the traffic they have on their sites. Secondly Thanks for the video. It was a great tip. I would definitely try it for my website.

That's right. If your brand is reputed and well known, then it's easy to get good traffic on your site. Most of the person prefer to buy branded products and items from well branded company.
