    I think if you've got a good site and a consumer that is likely to log on to find his or her lawncare (I.E. more of an urban/suburban person under age 50), then it matters alot.

    This is where the new media money is going to be made. tv ads are dead because everyone has a dvr or they get their content on the net.

    in my opinion google pg one is almost as good as printing money.

    Lawn service searches in my area put me on page on four times, but i'm thinking it's time to start spreading it around to other keywords.

    I think I can handle that, assuming it's done roughly the same way everyone plays, clean and fair I have no problem with.

    That's where I have a problem.

    I think you'd be more pissed if someone whooped your $3000 guy with $40.

    Exactly, and about as questionable in terms of how you got it.

    That having been said, I do agree that it's almost a requirement nowadays,
    what you folks speak of, page one results, the key being that it be for SOME
    kind of search as in... Not necessarily the one I wanted, but most anything I can
    be happy with, so long it's at least somewhat related to what I do.
