A clever animation that mentions Subway but is universal.

Spot on for the United States and fundamentally accurate for Canada and any other country.

  • Nice touch mentioning the veterans’ franchise program scams (VetFran).

Franchising and Google: More is always better, am I right?

July 20, 2010

Franchise sales claims are frequently inflated.So I was wondering:

What franchisee-related websites, weblogs, “communities” get the most Google search Results?

Here is what I found on July 19, 2010.

The Top 10

Rank Franchise Entity Search Term in ” ”
Results
1 IFA franchise.org 217,000
2 AAHOA aahoa.com 120,000
3 WikiFranchise wikifranchise.org 96,500
4 Franchise Chat franchise-chat.com 93,900
5 CFA cfa.ca 72,300
6 Blue MauMau bluemaumau.org 37,100
7 IAFD franchise-info.ca 34,700
8 FranchiseFool lesstewart.wordpress.com 27,900
9 Misleading Advertising Law bizop.ca/blog2 13,200
10 AAFD aafd.org 8,240

Happy now Les?

Sure: for what it’s worth…

  1. WikiFranchise.org is #3 (alive for less than 1.5 years) and
  2. FranchiseFool.com is #8 (3.7%) and
  3. together 16.5% (2nd only to the evil International Franchise Association).

Unfortunately, the industry continues to promulgate its long-ago discredited success claims (ie. BP Makes Discredited 90 Percent Claim).

These are the sites that I find interesting. Note that 59% of the sites are non-USA. The greatest translation site on WikidFranchise is Japan.
