    New Town, New Start

    See if there is a local paper that will do an auricle on you "moving your business into the area". Many times these guys are looking for new stuff to write about.

    Maps at it again!

    Check your GMB listings - they have disabled service area distance. You now have to put the zips or towns you service. They have also made it so you can't use general categories as your main category like - cleaning service. UGH

    Youtube vs ads on website

    Well optimized videos can kill it in local search as well a strong channel. Type in "grout cleaning warwick ny" - you should see my vids Also - why would you only be able to do only 1? You should do both

    Google My Business update

    That's odd - normally once you enter the code all is well. Google up the adwords support number - they can help you

    Google My Business update

    Local service program is different than GMB - GMB calls are from marketers. I get them all the time - funny - my listing is tops all over the place already thx to me!

    Trouble with Yelp?

    Seems like Yelp is getting worse and worse! They also (at least around here) somehow call from a local number so it's hard to block! Concentrate on Google reviews and FB reviews.

    Google My Business update

    Not google calling you - it's a marketing outfit that has found your listing.

    Latest Wordpress Update - Caution!

    Be very careful if you are updating to the latest WP - many reports of sites getting messed up. I had one go completely wonky on me!! Back up your site first - or better yet - wait till they throw out a few more updates!! I have heard some issues with DIVI themes which are petty popular.

    Olympus M1200 - hoses and a wand - $750

    Works good - I haven't used it in a while. I replaced the regulator and the high pressure hose from the pump. Pump out not coming on but prob an easy fix. New pressure hose - vac hose hose is almost new. I rarely used it at 1200 PSI. It comes with an older want too. I am in Orange County New York.

    I hope your using video!

    The video is 20 seconds long - what I meant was it landed on page 1 of the searches 2 mins after I posted it.

    I hope your using video!

    YouTube - I'll embed it on my site. Google my biz not a bad idea either. It showed up 2 mins after I uploaded to YT.

    I hope your using video!

    I just uploaded a video for a service I did. I titled it service_city. 2 mins later it was on page 1. It's a decent little town in my area. It was a backsplash I installed - not a huge service I know - but still! get those vids uploaded and optimized - I dominate my area with vids!!

    I've dominated for years - maps was my 1st delve into the online world as I was getting my rear end kicked bye all the competition.

    Somerhing cool I think

    It's new so no and there is really no way to track the results. Again - I see it as a trust factor. I can tell you that I helped Jason get to over 150 reviews and it definitely helped him pre-close jobs. This can only reinforce that.

    Somerhing cool I think

    I agree but I like it in case they find your site 1st. It also reinforces reviews over all as well as social trust.

    Clients don't care for sure! Easy to switch out if you ever want to
