Live & Learn. Most of these people on the forum are here to help, so keep checking back or in and get more feedback when changes are made.

And it is VERY clear you have a professional company, we would hate to see your REP get shot @ for duplicate content.

Your VAC truck is awesome, I am very close to needing an upgrade myself for fall clean ups.

If you need any pointers Tony could possibly point you in the right direction or other guys who have serious years of experience with website building on this forum.

The vac was the best thing I did! We made the tailgate hinge at the top so when you dump the vac stays mounted and when you put the body down it is ready to go. When we are done with leaves you can take that tailgate out and put 2' tall swinging doors back on. It only takes 40 min to swap setups.

There is great help on this site and I really appreciate tony and yourself bringing that to my attention. I have all of the info that he typed up and I will be making all of it into my own words. I feel horrible that this even happened in the first place. Like you said live and learn from your mistakes, it will only make us better as a company. Thanks again!

I agree with Ring. If you start out the right way, you'll do fine. After you make some changes, just yell when you're ready for more feedback.

The reality is, writing content can be the hardest thing people have to do. There's definitely nothing wrong with using another site as a baseline, just rewrite it in your own words. Trust me, I think we've all seen every way one can even try to uniquely describe Lawn Edging, so just outline your thoughts and fill in from there. If you do this, it will be unique. Search Engines are likely going to just get more punitive when it comes to dupe pics and content from here on out. Google and Bing image search have noticeably stepped this up.

When it comes to new sites, my advice would be to write what you can for each page, with length not being too important. Just get something decent on the page and then register and submit your site to Google and Bing's Webmaster Tools. You'll also want to create a Google Analytics account so you can see who is visiting your site, why they are, and where they are coming from. Once you see Google has started passing through your site to index it, revise your content to be a bit deeper, more descriptive, and lengthier. This provides you with some sanity and breathing room of publishing a full site right off the bat, while allowing Google to see you're adding new content.

Good luck and just yell when you have questions.

Hey Gold Leaf, good looking site dude. Ditto on the leaf vac.... When you can you might want to post some pics of your work which you probably know that by now. Good luck with next yr.

I noticed you plagiarized large sections of content as well. Just copy and pasted.

That was brought to my attention earlier in this thread. I took over the responsibility of redoing the content and it is submitted to the web designer to be changed. Sometimes you just gotta do the work yourself if you want it right. Unfortunately, that's how the world is becoming nowadays.

I like it. It looks professional. I like having the bright and colorful colors. I think it reminds people of spring and gets them excited. Maybe not, but one could hope.
