This woman standing by the side of the road in the middle of Death Valley, is a frequent irritation to some of the largest companies in the world. Her name is Brenda Priddy, and her job is “Spy Photographer“. She’s the worlds foremost automotive spy photographer and she specializes in getting shots of new vehicles before anyone else has ever seen them.
Car companies hate having these spy photos taken for a lot of reasons – most of them competitive. But a problem most auto executives probably aren’t aware of is the SEO impact these spy photos can have on model year specific vehicle name keywords. Once these photos go out to Automotive enthusiast websites like Jalopnik and Left Lane News they spread fast and virally onto blogs, forums and tweets.
