    site looks great.

    Although the seo is not bad, there is more to be done.

    Tony is. He can pick up strange code that hinders your ranking. Very friendly and honest with his advice, He will be along shortly I'm sure.:usflag:

    Ranking-wise, there's really nothing to adjust for with a new site. As long as there is a base of optimization, there's not a lot to do other than add and refine content. You can track when and how it starts ranking and adjust and implement from there. Besides a solid foundation, I don't do anything beyond making sure the site is on search's radar and beginning to be indexed. Once I start tracking keyword rankings, and think that there is a legitimate baseline, I'll start tweaking.

    Personally, I follow a methodology of phasing in additional SEO once a site starts ranking so as to have a natural progression. This is an approach I follow to very good success, especially over the last 4 years.

    I think it looks good....I also must add that it is a good thing you are not located in Cincinatti OH, because your site is very similar to this site: www.dklawncare.com

    Great looking site. Very clean and professional.

    Work on some additional content. A great rule of thumb is 300-500 words. Think about adding some outbound links to some trade organizations. And consider putting in a customer testimonial or two.

    Grammer is important and there are many mistakes. You can get all the traffic you want and still fail to make a good first impression.
