What's up guys...I wanted to start a thread to see if anyone would be interested in exchanging links to their site; I'll put a link to your website on my website if you put a link to my website on your website.

This is a great way to build traffic, particularly where high "rank" and high indexing are concerned.

The more "backlinks" you have to your site from other sites, the higher rank Google will give you - especially if those backlinks are on a related website.

It wouldn't make sense for me to link to a LOCAL competitor, so please, distantly related companies only.

I look forward to working with you for the betterment of both of our businesses!

Reply to this thread if you are interested, intrigued, or if you have a question.

Well, I get about 250 visits a month. Up until now, I have not gone after backlinks, only natural rank. The first few months the site was up, I had great rank. After a while, rank got lower as it does, so here I am!

on the cpanel just now, I checked traffic and all...looks like googlebot is visiting daily.

I try to do fresh material on my blog.

Hope it's good enough to merit some exchanges - maybe some more fresh, newer sites would be more interested in exchanging.

thanks,

I am always learning about this stuff and I was wondering, does it help if your lawn care business website is posted in a post say here on the forum?

Does that help?

absolutely, it helps. As long as this site isn't in a bad hosting neighborhood or on google's blacklist lol

I don't know if google bombing still works...I think they fixed that, so that's not an issue.

I'd say yes, it helps - it helps because the more opportunities you present to be found by the Search Engine Spiders, the better chance you have of winning the popularity contest that google/yahoo/msn/etc consider to be precious.

Ashley,

What would you say most people would look for when they looked for a lawn care operator in your area and how do you rank on that list?

Maybe I could offer some suggestions on that?

I think they're just looking...whoever they call is just another yard guy. You have to wow them - create a "Raving Fan", and earn referral based business.

Well, I try to rank highest - I'm in it to win it

Hi Ashley:

My site gives free links to lawn care business websites such as yours.

I am not a link farm or anything nefarious...just testing a theory.

And, of course, I welcome a return link from you.

Cheers:

Keith

Ashley,

How has it been, to be a member of SCBDC

How did you get involved with that group and what do you think you got most out of it?
