Who is linking to your competition? Use Yahoo's "link:" service to see the back links of your competition. For example, type in "link:http://www.yourdomain.com" into Yahoo search without the quotes). Try to get links from the same sites as your direct competitors. Better yet, see if you can replace them!

Here is who links to The Lawn Blog right now

Hi ritchiem,

Could you explain to us all the importance of back links?

Well backlinks or inbound links come from people who link to your website from theirs. And the number of quality backlinks shows the popularity towards that site and search engines like google loves that.

When inbound links to your site come from other sites, and those sites have content related to your site, these inbound links are considered more relevant to your site. If inbound links are found on sites with unrelated content, they are considered less relevant. The higher the relevance of inbound links, the greater their quality.

Make sense?

Yes it does.

Does Yahoo and Google treat these links similarly or different?

Yes they do...in fact Goggle is so picky on what they consider whitehat SEO backlinks are one of the best ways to show that your site has credibility.

I've got to have the spring photos uploaded,customer testimonials added,more landscape installs uploaded,and I noticed some of the photos aren't on the site any longer.
I'd like to add another page to the portfolio and the before and after pages.
