Look up their IP address, find the hosting company and report them, I pretty sure they have a legal obligation to take the site down, if they do not change it.

link not valid
When you trade links with someone does that help your ranking . If so why dont we all just link each other and do a carpet cleaning directory?
We did that maybe a year ago. I don't know if it helped or not. A few promised to do it then didn't do it on their end. So they got the benifits without helping anyone else.. I think that burned a lot of people. Lots of new people here so maybe it could be tried again?

Right now I'm working on back links to rank higher in google for certain areas we give service too. In some of the towns in the county we are already on the first page but others we are not. Any body have any advice on back linking and the fastest way to do them?

That kind of turned into a mess, I still have the links I was suppose to do listed on my site.

This is the best question on this forum in my opinion.
I posted a link exchange idea but absolutely nobody responded. Maybe most simply are in the dark about it and do not understand how important and amazing it can be if done the right way.
There is a right way and wrong way to do it. The right way can not be explained here. It slightly beyond just a link on a relevant site. But it's easy. Contact me privately if interested in doing this. I did get to page one for 3 websites and all 3 fell under extremely competitive keywords so I know it works.

It costs to be number 1, everyone wants it, but wants it cheap, it is not cheap to be number 1, the guy you knock off the top spot will want it back, and will spend money to get back there.

The problem is several of the companies that take you to #1 are still doing black hat practices and you never know it until Zap you're gone. If you pay for SEO you have to ask or require they share back links and other work.

Targeting cities with keywords works well, followed by Youtube city video, connected to a Merchant circle city blog page, and connected to every other free directory I have time for, or that I can get my hands on. Linking city videos to city blogs will give you a great boost. I have over 200 cities made from 1 single video. The video is tweaked just enough to pass Youtube's "duplicate video" rule.

something like this http://www.powerwashing-newjersey.com/roof-cleaning-freehold-nj-power-washing-freehold-nj/

No white hat techniques will get you to number 1, if it does, then you would be in retirement before that happens

Depending on the market. If you are talking about large metropolitan area yes there would have to be some extras . Just like professional sports with supplements :)

Sorry I didn't get to finish the video . I used an emergency ice pick to stab myself in the eye and make it stop .

what is a good standard on keeping fresh content on your site? everyday? every week? and what if you have a ton of pages? how do you go about that especially if your not a writer.

@dmreed4311 would you mind taking a peek at my site and giving me your thoughts. Ive only been at for 3-4 days now and have a lot of copy and keywords to add. I'm an idiot when it comes to this stuff but really want to learn all I can as fast as I can. I don't have a blog on there yet but will be adding one this week. No backlinks or citations yet because I just started Wednesday night.

Im worried about my url though. My old domain is forwarding to the new sites home page which only shows up as an ip number. I also have a stone domain name forwarding to the stone page on the site. I haven't figured out how to change that ip number to my original domain but I may just buy another cheap domain to use if I cant figure it out.

Anyone else that has any opinions lemme have it. The pics will be changed soon as well. Its all I had access to from this computer and have no stock photos, only originals. www.hittcarpetcare.com and www.nashvillestonecare.com

What is the deal with the ip address?
