I have pictures of my own from 20 years ago, I went gross overkill in the construction but I have never had an issue and it works perfect, I will post them as I have step by step, just have to find them and scan them.

I personally didn't change the theme per say as I don't have time but I have done that with my woodworking site in the fall changing it to a Christmas theme, not sure if that made a difference on hits.

What I do know is the changes I stay ahead of on my website make a major difference, within 48 hours of receiving an email from the software that I have been crawled I start getting inquiries, when I check to see what the person may have been searching I see the new keywords have been updated in the search engine. Then i run another software that tells me where I rank in our area for that keyword, if I am fourth or 5th, I run the other sites to see what keywords they are using and how much that word is in their home page contant, I adjust accordingly and within a week I am number 1 or 2, all of this takes less than 30 min of actual time, it's free.

I change a month ahead of a season, almost as bad as Costco, they have had Christmas stuff out for three weeks, should be summer by December
What software are you using that does this. I received 3 or 4 calls yesterday from people that said they found me through google and I'm trying to up those numbers.

I find that people that contact you are more willing to be straight forward about business.

I'm interested in these two different software apps that give you keyword and ranking info.

I can't wait for you to get back with me.

Web CEO, I can't believe the number of calls we get from people using google, I should say mainly emails from the Contact Me on my website. I reset my visitors in May, in one year my website had just over 15,000 hits
