Free SEO Guide for Landscapers

Hi Everyone,

I'm quite new to these forums and have done lots of reading the last few days and learned plenty that's going to help me with my landscaping business based here in the UK, so thanks.

With that said, I thought my first thread would be to give something back that should hopefully help some of you guys with websites. Its a link to an seo guide that has given me ideas on how to get more visitors to my site. The company that writes the guide are UK based and I know 90% of people here are in the US but hey, the internet is the internet so you should still find it useful (its good for me though, as my competitors won't get hold of it ).

I may be a little biased as these guys built my website for me but they seem to know what they are doing. Although they aren't doing my seo as I want to do that myself .

I'd say that's an understatement. lol The address of the SEO/Web Design company and your landscaping business tell me you're more than a little biased.

Haha, nice investigative work Tony. All I did was skim over the site really quick.

Conversely, you can buy it from Amazon and just rebrand it with your own company's info, as this guy did. lol

This is why I'm glad I didn't report his spam. This is amusing...

This is embarrassing...

My favorite part of his site is under the "social links". It says "Find us on In.com" next to the LinkedIn logo. Nice work.

Haha, that is hilarious. If the guy was just honest he probobly wouldve gotten a little more hits off of this site. Once your proven to be dishonest you are done....Just like any other business.

the footer nav bar's links are either broken or nobody bothered to make it clickable.

oops. you'd think a site that sells web design would work.
