small company websites

I'm sure the larger companies get a great deal of work from their websites. What about the little guys? Just curious, how many small companies have a website? Do you get a significant amount of jobs from it?
Tell us how many jobs & estimates you get from your site yearly. (rough est. will be fine.)

Spelling Mistake on Your Site

Weather Forcast - Should be "forecast"

Looks great otherwise!

It's good that you have gotten some requests for estimates - so quickly. Question: How did these people find your website? Did you register it on Yahoo? ? etc
