I think the other thing Tony was trying to tell you is you need the contact on each page because you do not know what page they will land on. If people have to look for it too hard they become

Frustrated
Suspicious
or both.

Oddly enough people are afraid to call you and tell you to come to their house knowing you will bring a chain saw and other implements of destruction. They want to know who you are and you are who you say you are.

If I originally wrote the content, I'd be bothered by this. If you read the Gold Leaf review thread, the subject of duplicate content is addressed.

No, I'm really not.
I copy/ pasted it to Google and I came up 3 times and someone else came up once, and I've changed it.
what other content?

Your entire home page's content is identical to the same site I pointed out that has the identical service area wording. Only difference I see is the first word of your content is "They" whereas their's is "We". It's a bit amusing, given the context of "We" vs "They" and who actually owns that page of content.

http://greencrewlm.com/

Given your same target market, I'd strongly suggest sorting this one out.

Seriously, if they tell me to take a hike i have absolutely no ( legal) recourse.
Can i contact google and have it removed?
I know i could with photos, but words arent copyrighted.
Google would know history and who was first right?
My buddy jim lewis did that with davidsons here in salem when they stole pictures right off their site, and Google would have shut their site down if they didnt remove them.

I called and left a message and emailed them.

Ok, i went online to Google and filed a webspam report on them, and will follow up with a call to google tomorrow.
When u said duplicate cont. , I thought, "what a coincidence, i said proudly serving, and someone else did" and didn't take it seriously, and when i went and looked at it...even the colors were the same!!!

Jeez consider it "getting sorted"


The last time i got cheated in a similar manner- made posters that could hold buz. Cards, and a company took the cards out and replaced them with their buz cards, and then told me to "$&@$ off" i called "blocked" and gave them a random address an hour away,and got a quote over the phone and to please go ahead and do the cleanup.
I then called them in the evening and said "where were you?!
He said he started to work and someone ran out and stopped them. I convinced them that they were supposed to be at a different # (reversed the numbers) a couple blocks away,that i really needed to have a meeting of the minds, and that i needed them to be there at 6:00 sharp to make sure they understood. I said I would probably be in the back room getting ready for work, so ring the bell several times and knock loud please.........(good times)

Ps-

Latinos are a proud people and are very hard working, and motivated peoples.
I have the utmost respect for them and this is not a good example of them as a whole.
