In episode 213 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if a company's branding is affected when an RYS G Site ranks higher than the money site for the main targeted keywords.
The exact question was:
It looks like it may be possible for the RYS G Site to rank for the main targeted keyword before the money site does. If so, that would be an unfortunate money site branding situation (even though the G Site is carrying links to the money site). I thought the RYS stacks would push ranking juice to the money site so that the money site gets the ranking and the traffic juice. Am I confused on this point?
