I did a search for "landscaping doylestown" and check out the results. Only two were of actual lawn care business websites. The first one has some kind of php script running, like a blog to show off the different projects they worked on. Very interesting!

It's also fascinating to see that none of them rank in the number 1 spot. The #1 is being held by merchantcircle.com. Which I am guessing it would be really important to be listed with them.

I guess it also highlights the importance of using a site that is seo friendly. Especially with some sort of php coding to offer many different pages.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
In regards to SprinklerRepair, That is the point about narrowing it down. THAT IS WHAT WE DO. We help local companies like landscapers in a small (3-10) zip code area find local customers that are looking for that particular service by placing their ads on the websites that they visit. We do optimize and help their website rankings, but that is not what we specialize or guarantee. It just happens "ORGANICALLY" I guess you could say. By being in our network or directory, each advertiser gets the exposure we get as they are connected with us. I swear it isn't rocket science. We do what no other company does. No company has what we have for the price either. Google doesn't give each advertiser an I-Supply store front to make money, NOW DO THEY SPRINKLREPAIR? Many people get caught up in what they read when they Google something and think it is law. Many of those people are mad at a company or been burned but they speak out of revenge but all should know that it is rubbish and people are going to write what they want to..LocalAdLink will go on with or without SprinklerRepair...No hard feelings

Default Steve, Here are a few landscapers in our system

Now Steve, these are a few companies that were loaded into our system as many companies do for their directories. Now, in time many more will become customers as the word gets out. Remember, we started our company in Nov. and since have totaled over 3.5 million in ad sales. With ads only 50,100,and 200 dollars, that's a lot of sales my friend. Even though I am in Atlanta Ga. I might try to contact these companies, but I like to stay local. Are you familiar with any of them?

I am not sure but I am guessing people will click on what ever comes across as being the most relevant to what they are searching for? Whether it be ads or organic search results?

SprinklerRepair is an unknown quantity at this point
Default

The point I'm making is that SEO beats PPC in the long run, on both cost and traffic volume.

PPC is easier, SEO a little harder. Better sometimes takes a little more elbow grease than easier.

But, it is not nearly as hard as uninformed believe.

To get from page 100 to page 1 just takes a road map to show you the way.
