“Where’s the best place to hide a dead body?"/"Google’s second page of search results”

"What’s the best place to hide a dead body?” The jocular answer is the second page of Google search results, because nobody ever goes there.

“Am I the only one who realises you could hide a dead body or drugs on the second page of a google search and it would never be found?” was cited on Twitter on December 2, 2011. “The best place to hide a dead body is on the second page of a Google search” was cited on Twitter on January 5, 2012.

Watchdog Reveals How to Remove Bad Reviews from Google Amidst Concerns

“It is often said that the best place to hide a dead body is on a second page of Google. If a business listing is overwhelmed with positive reviews, the negative ones will simply get pushed off the first page, effectively being as good as gone,” says Budimir, adding that this method levels the playing field for those businesses who are victims of predatory defamation tactics.

The title of this post is quite attention-grabbing and packs a powerful message. It certainly caught my attention when the quote was dropped on inbound.org by Dharmesh Shah on April 3rd. He gave Brian Clark, a.k.a. Copyblogger, credit for it; but later, Brian posted that it wasn’t his quote. After doing a little research, I found that the source of the quote was “unknown,” so I don’t know who to give actual credit to. No matter—the attention it garnered on inbound.org and the action it received on Twitter meant the message resonated with a lot of folks—as it should.

If links to your pages aren’t in the first couple of positions on the first page of the search results, the chances of someone clicking on them are pretty slim. And if you’re not on the first page, you have basically zero chance of getting the click. (Remember the old joke: Where’s the best place to hide a dead body? On the second page of the search results, because nobody ever looks there.)
