Default Me and everybody Else

I checked out the site, and it's like the Yellow Pages, Yipple or Merchant Circle.. You are one of many listings.

Why not stand out? For a one time payment of $60 you could get www.Articlez.com to write 10 articles based on your keywords. Paste those into your Word Press blog and also submit to the directories/article sites that I list at Google Slam and you would rank as a STAND ALONE RETURN for those keywords.

Submit those posts to the RSS feeders and you own the serp (search engine return.)

And, if you do it the way I explain in the free report, there is no "monthly fee". Do it once.

That's whats nice about OWNING versus RENTING serps. Once you own it, if you want, you can sell it.

No different than terrestrial real estate. Owning beats renting every time.

Default More confusion

Jim,
Thanks for your sincerity but I have to tell you that it is not my company. We are a publicly traded company. Our CEO, Bob McNaulty was the early business plan geniuses that came up with the Home Depot business plan. He started the Home Club and Shopping.com. He sold them both for about half a billion. So we are not just any company friend. I am am merely an independent sales brand builder. I simply thought that there were some folks on here that would see the value of our service. You will soon see in the very near future, your competitors on the top sponsored links listed on LocalAdLink..And I was NEVER giving anyone a free test of this. It cost money to advertise, to put these ads all over the internet and for our contextual reading software to aide in your search rankings, hell no this was never free. Would you mow someone's grass for free to show them you knew how to keep your mower in line and not scalp their yard...EXACTLY

I could spend the time to make every ad I have specifically geo-targeted, if I wanted. But the thing is sometimes my clients are away in California or have two homes or are just moving into our area. So most of my stuff is geared more toward specific key words more than it is geo targeted. And I pay so little for those little ads anyway, I don't really care.

My PPC main ads in Google and Yahoo, those I pay some serious dough for. The bid price on those is pretty high. But the bid price for these little text ads is ike 40 cents and they rarely get clicked on. I spend less than $20 a month on those. So I've never felt the need to really get them totally dialed in like I would like them. It's just additional advertising.

My main advertising is getting my site to the top of the Google organic listings. My fall-back is PPC advertising with Google and Yahoo. And then I have several other fall-backs to catch people too.
Organic is fine but slow and hard to maintain. Get results quick with LocalAdLink!
