Default New Site Packed With Content

We finally put the new site online tonight. There are still a few things to work out but we wanted to start having Google crawl it now.

I am still working on the blog. Pressure Washing Louisville, KY

Most would not have this large of a site, but this is going to be the anchor site for several more sites to come. Web design and SEO is more than just making the page look pretty. It requires a plan.

It is not as expensive as you think. $12 per domain and less than $10 per month for hosting all the domains that you purchase. You do not have to purchase hosting for every domain individually with GoDaddy.

Now you want to see why I preach so much on content. See the link below. I dominate page one. The only result that has nothing to do with me is #5. My pages are 1-4. That means only one spot for competition.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
That is awesome!

We have been talking a little more lately on here about using word press. What is your view about using word press when you make a website along with using it for your blog software? Are you using it on this new site or no?

I will show you what one looks like when I get done. Wordpress is the bomb right now. very fast indexing and crawling. at one time my site had 22 bots crawling it at the same time.

Take a look at my SEO site. That one is wordpress. I have not had much time to work on it though.

The Veteran Power Wash Blog is ready for them to start inputting the blog posts. The neat thing is there is a plug in that will update the site map every time there is a change and then update Google and Bing every time.

You did an excellent job with the site. What tips do you give them when it comes to writing blogs because most people it seems detest writing anything.

For one, you have to be passionate about what you are writing or it is best left up to a professional writer. You can get someone to write posts for you very cheap. Secondly, You should attempt to make them no less than 250 words to about 500 words.

In the bigger picture, should the goal be to get people to read the blog or is it more important that it has your chosen keywords in it to get a higher ranking in search engines?

I really like ixwebhosting.com for hosting my lawn care website, it was $45 for a year with a domain name included. you can purchase domains anywhere you like and then associate them with your site host's servers.

their customer support is also quite good.
