I was wondering what other sites everyone is using to list their business... here's a short (and incomplete) list of some of the ones we're using:

Ziply.com
iBegin.com
Findoha.com
LaborTrader.com
MerchantCircle.com
Hire-Contractors.com
LawnCareCompanies.com

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
You know, I do wonder how effective all these sites are.

Maybe some who run blogs could jump in here, but I wonder if it would just be much more effective if you had a blog on your site with a lot of lawn care discussion content on it.

If these search engines are looking for key words throughout content and the more content you have the better, then maybe this is the way to go?

Hmm... interesting thinking... I was using them for multiple reasons:

1- Get listed on the sites where potential customers may be looking...
2- Network with other businesses in my area (which could be potential customers, too) that are also listed on the site...
3- Create more inbound links...

I don't know how effective the third one is...

From what I've read all over the internet, it appears that inbound links are good, especially if they are 1 way links, which means your website doesn't link back to the referring site. But this is just what I've read.

Really? One way links? Do you remember where you read that? I wouldn't think it would matter either way, but I'd love to find out for certain.

How does craigslist.org play into all of this too? Do you think that helps increase your inbound links?

Oh that's good! I really like your stripes pictures. I noticed you can also add video!

Maybe you might do that? Or Patrick might too!
