    I need some help with trying to come up with SEO keywords. I am not showing up in google searches when I type in Ace Lawn Care TN. My facebook page shows up as number 3 but my website sure is not there.

    Here is my site description: Ace Lawn Care - Lawn Care Service, Landscape, Mowing Seymour, TN 37865

    and my Meta keywords: ace lawn care, TN, Tennessee, lawn, lawn care, fertilizing, aerating, over seeding, yard work, mow, mowing, landscape design, landscaper, landscapers, landscape design, landscape maintenance, landscape company, landscape, hardscape, flowers, grass, sod, tree removal, seymour tn, knoxville tn

    I need to work on the meta keywords some more But what do I put for my header and footer code?

    You're actually not going to like the reason, but it's because you use weebly, and used their standard username.weebly.com address.

    I'm not familiar with weebly but I would imagine they may have an option of using your own domain name, and if not, still buy a domain and setup a permanent redirect with masking to your lawnsite.weebly.com address.

    Also, focus on the Title and Description. Google doesn't use keywords metatag anymore.

    Focus on getting your domain name, and getting it setup properly, and you should get indexed in google then.

    Hey thanks for the help. So now I bought a domain name. www.acelawncaretn.com but the site is not running yet. Says it takes 24-48 hours to transfer over but if I go through weebly site it goes to my new site.

    So how should I set up my site description than? I am new to all of this but I want the best I can get.

    Also do you have any other recommendations for a free web hosting site? I seen websketch.com? I dont know how good they are. Might try them.

    I'm replying 30 minutes later and looks like your AceLawnCareTN.com is working.
    It may take full 24-48 hours to fully work world-wide.

    Anyway, for any type or size of business I would never recommend free hosting.
    You get what you pay for, just like with everything else.

    Hey yea it appears to be working but still nothing in search engine. But what would you recommend for a hosting site? I just want to get my name out there. This is really my first whole year into the business and just looking for new ways to get business.

    Well your site is already hosted with weebly,
    you only need, and can have 1 host at a time for
    your site, so I'm confused. What are you trying to do?

    It may take a few days/weeks for Google to index your site.

    Sorry if I am confusing you. You were just saying you didnt recommend a free hosting site so I was just asking what you thought would be better? I know I can only have one host at a time but if I got rid of weebly and went to something else I would still only have one host than.

    So you think if I just wait my site may eventually pop up on google? I registered my business with google places but it has not showed up yet either. I just registered it yesterday and it said it could take a day to show up.

    Did you confirm the business via phone, or request a letter mail to
    finalize your listing in google places?

    Also pretty sure you'r website is built from within the weebly
    service - there is no moving that website over to any other host.

    And yes your site will get picked up by google.

    Yea I confirmed it. Im sure it will show up here in a few days.

    Yea I understand it built within weebly but I was talking about rebuilding the site with a different server but I guess I will stick with them for the time being and see how it goes. I have my website posted on all my fliers and stuff. Just hope google will eventually pick it up.

    Ok yes, most recently I started using hostgator, but if you have a simple
    site you can also use GoDaddy. I'll have to write a review of top hosting
    companies I've used.

    When you move, you'd have to start from scratch. So you're right,
    for now stick with what you got. Google Places should help you,
    wait the 24 - 48 hours.
