Is it legit to have pages from the same domain in multiple rankings (domain crowding)?

by Simon B   Last Updated June 05, 2015 22:01 PM

I'm trying to optimize my site and notice that one of my competitors appears in all of the top 3 results same domain, different pages.

Is this normal or considered an abuse?

Does anyone have any comment about this can I should I report it?

There's no violation of any sort for just being on multiple ranking in the first page.

Here's an example

If there isn't any sort of spamming, backlink abuse or other blackhat practice, it's completely legit.

Here's some words from Matt Cutts that answer all your doubts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxv-AvNPoh8

As he said, if a domain has very high quality pages about a topic, even if Google prefers diversity, they can show people resources from that domain in multiple rankings.
