From what I've read and been told, links between credible sites is one important factor in upping search result position.

As an irrigation and fert program company my brain is at a loss about who to link with except for some other service providers such as a couple landscapers and a tree service I refer to.

Universities doing turf research would be nice but isn't going to happen. Irrigation manufacturers won't do it because contractors are not authorized, regional service rep, a distributor etc.

Any one have ideas? How about linking with quality non green industry sites?

all links help to a certain extent... including ones in your signature. Also the words in the link has weight in SEO. Hence the link in my signature.

(Let's see if I can do this without getting my posts deleted)

SEO is a long-term strategy. You will not see anything immediate, but it does help - I promise. So keep looking at getting links from other reputable sites by join, contributing, and seeing if you can do the day. If you missed my original posts (that got deleted) also look at getting with some of your buds in the same industry (but different region) and see if they would be willing to put a link to your site and you put on on their site. It will help out both of you.

Thanks. One thing that never has changed is the value from linkbacks.

I have found that people that jump every time google sneezes don't get too far. The same basic rules always apply: Good solid non-spammy content will always win. Work on getting good links back from sites that have a good reputation. Anything deceiving or blackhat eventually gets caught and busted,.

As patrickAllmond mentioned, SEO is an ongoing, long term strategy, it's hard to gauge exactly when you'll see return and increase of website traffic. Obviously the more you have it listed, the more traffic you'll get.

One tip I HIGHLY recommend is registering your business on all the local listings within search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.

Not only will your business pop up within a search (such as someone typing in Google "landscaper tampa, fl"), but it helps your website's SEO. It's also another form of free advertising.

Unfortunately, Google (and other search engines) don't make finding the URLs to register your business very easy, so the marketing team I work with here at PostcardMania found all the URLs and created a PDF which has them all listed, instructions included. You can get this PDF here: http://bit.ly/gR3zsh

Hope you find this helpful :)

Besides the basic links (which our report has a different one for Google that helps pull your business in searches), there's a bunch more that are provided on the PDF... plus we offer other free tools and resources that people can opt-in for, only if they want to of course.
