    Hey everybody with a website. I'm sure most of you know that reciprical links on your websites to "like kind" business's is a big plus for the search engines. I would love to trade links with any body out there.

    If you'll put my website http://www.PensacolaTreeCare.com on your links page and send me a message to let me know you did to mark@pensacolatreecare.com and tell me your web address, I will in return put your site on my links page.

    Anybody interested?

    Have a great one!

    Mark

    So, by not telling us where you're actually at, what you are about, and blantently SPAMMING, what redeeming things do YOU have to offer AS? Just curious how your obviously brilliant business mind is seeing things, then again I could be, like, totally missing it, then I'll deserve a slap or two, take my lumps, go back to cave and hide out. My thought is that if someone has a decent site there shouldn't be a need to solicit it in a post of this sort, hm, sort of, um, gahQ!, not feeling right or something, am I wrong? If so, I bar me.
    Yah, I am wrong, this seems like an honest offer to reciprocate traffic, its a fine idea and sends more here, still........................................could've just posted your link in your sig or something? Why is my bells ringing? Oh nm, its the phone thingy..........
    I be cut offffffff!

    Hey Sprig, no, i have a great site and I'm already near the top on all the search engines. I'm in Pensacola, Florida, so of course I understand if a direct competitor didn't want to exchange links.

    All I'm offering is a way for both of us to get higher and stay higher in the search engines. Simple.

    I've read lots of books on SEO and this is one of the number 1 ways.

    I don't know about you'll but I get tired of advertising/marketing, if I can make this website things work real well for me I can say goodbye to other ads/flyers/doorhangers, etc since the web is the ultimate advertising medium these days in my mind.

    http://www.PensacolaTreeCare.com is my site.

    Have a great one.

    That's right. Your site is rated by how useful it is and being linked to popular sites boosts your placement. I'll link up. I can't seem to show my site link here. WTF www preferred tree service dot com

I like how it is still affordable round there and lots of developement to come. By the looks of your website you're a real go getter. Hope it all goes well for ya.

    Awesome corndogg, Pensacola is a great little town! The Mighty "O" is a great dive. I know all those guys your talking about, when I was a kid every summer I deck handed on dive boats (in between tree jobs of course!) out of Divers Den (which the west side Divers Den was sold to Fritz who started MBT) . We're very thankful for the NAVY sinking her here!

    No prob Serge on the comment, I know it was a little "out of the ordinary" post, just trying to do something mutually beneficial for us all!

    Good deal ReachTree Service, if you want to go ahead and give me your link I'll be happy to go ahead and put it up. The sooner you get something online, even if its "under construction" the quicker you'll get into the search engines, and longevity is a key factor for Google and Yahoo especially!

    Have a great one!

    There are so many factors involved in this, but the easiest one to target is keywords. My area is Pensacola, so I shoot for anything with Pensacola and tree in it, like: Pensacola Tree Care, Pensacola Tree Service, Pensacola Tree Work, Pensacola palm pruning, Pensacola palm trimming, etc.

    You never know what the person is going to type into the search engine, so you have to predict. Any of the above searches on yahoo and I'll be number 1 or real close to it, google is a different animal but I'll at least be in the top 3 pages.

    My site is only 3 weeks old too, so I'm real excited to know where it will be in a year!

    Good luck,

    Mark

    At least you have a bit of content growing.

    You are not quite where I want a site to be for my links page, but you are getting there - content wise. I don't just "exchange" links. I list links with information that people can use. Your blog area seems to be that content area.

    Where do you keep your ISA number on your site? Or are you able to?

    I'll reread your site this week to make sure I'm not missing details by skimming too quick.

    If all you want is the TOP THREE pages, forget it altogether. If you can't make it to the first page - save the effort.

    Now, if your goal is the first three pages with the intent to rise higher come hell-or-high-water, that may be different.

    Hey M.D. Vaden, oh yeah, your right, no doubt. Your website is sharp, no doubt! Good job! Do you remember where your page was in the rankings when it was barely 3 weeks old?

    On YAHOO and MSN I am number 1-3 in the rankings, mostly number 1. Google seems to fluctuate, there are days I'm in the first page and the FURTHEST I've seen it back was on page 3.

    I know I've got a lot of work to do, thats why I'm here... Obviously your site is already near the top or the top I'm sure, it looked real good! Congrats! Some of us need to do things to get ours better though, thats the only reason I offer the link exchange. If you don't want to. No biggie.

    I got a $330 palm pruning job off www.PensacolaPalms.com this morning from an active military lady that is currently deployed. I'm happy!

    Have a good day.

    You can do the "pay per click" with google that will put you in an "add" form on the top or right side of the page. BUT with good SEO and a little luck you can get near the top without paying google. Good luck!
