    You'd have to analyze the economics of it using costs/effort levels to potential ROI. Unless you discover a rank reason to do so, such as Lawn Mowing is dominated by Lead-gen companies, such as Angie's List and Service Magic, but they are leaving Lawn Maintenance alone, maybe, but then why not just shape your content to rank well for both?

    If you were working for me, and brought forth this idea, I'd have to ask you to present your case with as much supporting detail as possible. Time-based hunches, such as splitting out content to two distinctly separate sites and waiting for Search to catch up, are still money-based hunches. Can your business afford to lose both?

    If you'd like more specific input, based on your target service area and demographics, I'd be more than happy to weigh in. Just PM me the info.

    I am wanting to do 2 separate companies and service the same area. My current business providing full service landscape maintenance and the a separate outfit to do mowing, bush trimming and mulch at "budget friendly" pricing. I really think that would reach more customers. One focused on quality and one focused on bottom dollar

    Knox,

    Yeah that's the exact angle I was considering. I think you could advertise to those different customers much easier that way.
