    I am going to list "Tips, Tools & Resources" to help anyone who can't get a handle on advancing their site on the search engines. And if Reggie has the time to implement the work it shouldn't take very long for the site I put up for him.

    You can pull great information about seo from this forum and you should have a handle on about everything you need to know by just reading the stickies.

    What started just trying to help someone out who's site was down has turned into getting his site on the first page and hopefully to the top for his keyword. On page two of this thread.

    The free version comment hut lite go to this site.
    http://www.commenthut.com/

    Just get one ( 1 ) new link a day from using comment hut. It's your business your going to get far more from these links than most people can imagine if you put a little effort into the process. Did I mention it is free.


    Listing your business on the internet,

    These are all places where you can put up links and descriptions for you business. To do all of them might take 30 minutes to a hour.

    Keep a list of the sites and the passwords you use for them because you may want to go back and change a listing sometime.

    I found a few years ago I got more business from the internet than the yellow page ads and I stopped advertising with them. I Thank my Lord I broke free of the phone company and their jive.

    I'll post some more resources in a couple days. Reggie should have submitted the www.lawncaretampafl.com site to these free sites and anyone who is interested can get a feel for how long the process takes.

    Here are some sites that help you get links to your site, you need to add a few basic details and the sites semi-automate the submission process.

    www.onlywire.com
    socialposter.com
    http://www.socialmarker.com/

    find one you like and do it once every 4 months

    Turf, check out titles of my pages, it will help with the individual seo if you set up similarly...

    Try this Lawn Care | Lawn Mowing Tampa, St Pete

    etc...

    Thanks Bill,

    I have done a few like that but stopped for " lawn care tampa lawn care"
    or - "lawn care tampa lawn service" Sometimes I like to put the phone number in there so it shows up in the search listing title.

    If there is serious competition I would probably go the way your suggesting.
    50% of the time I don't do what I know is a better method until I get a site close to the first Page. I guess I better go take care of "lawn care tampa " site soon.
