Getting Results the First Time

Getting Results the First Time

I relied mostly on word of mouth for my website because I served a very local clientele. When I had some requests from people who lived nearly 900 miles away, they explained that their mother lives in the same town and told them about my website. That alone made me realize that I was missing out on the bigger picture and had me doing an online search for SEO small business. I realized that if I could get my site on the front page of search engine results, i might actually be able to have a wider customer base.

The only reason I even understood what had to be done is because I do a lot of online research and purchases. It is very rare when I will go the second page on a search engine results page. Actually, it is very rare for me to go to the bottom of the first page. I usually find what I want within the first several results, and I knew that I needed to get my own website in that position on the first page of search results too. I had put myself in a very small mind position, thinking that I could only serve local customers, but I now had a nationwide mindset.

I was able to find a company relatively quickly. I did what I do with any other thing I am looking for. I looked at the first few results, and I was impressed by one company more than the others. It did not take long to secure this company's services, and they had me on the first page of search engine results faster than I thought possible. I went from having a modest business to one where I had to hire several people to help me out. That is more than I could have imagined!

Started Working on a New House

Started Working on a New House

The land is a bit out of town, it takes about thirty five minutes to get back in town. However it is only about twenty minutes from the plant and so it is not that inconvenient for me to get to work. If I need to get into town that will be a good drive obviously, so I shall have to get all my business done when I do go in. Right now it is all farmland, but it has not been farmed for a long time. I am trying to get power now, I went here to check on which electric providers are available in this area. I am going to try to do as much of the work as I can myself, but I need to get the infrastructure required to start the job. Obviously I need to have electric power to run my tools. After that I am wondering how much work it would be to put in the foundation. To start off I think I might erect this prefabricated metal building that a friend of mine is willing to let me have. It is about twenty eight feet long and twelve feet wide so it is big enough to store all of my stuff and I could temporarily live in it if I put heat and air in it. That would make it a lot easier for me to take my time working on the house. I need the time for a couple of reasons, namely money and the fact that I am going to need help from people with the necessary skills. I know quite a few guys who can do all of the work that is required, but they are going to help me only when it fits in their plans. They will do it when they have no other work obviously.
