Why no BM PAC? I would think BM and California would be a killer combo. Throw in Muralo which California owns and you'd be unbeatable.

May just be a bit redundant? They're both great brands. I guess you could cherry pick the best from both, but that usually means for us we'd get orders half as frequently (we typically have to order a certain number of gallons to get the truck coming our way) which can make logistics tricky. I think he had actually talked about maybe looking at BM sometimes. Only downside is that BM is a bit cranky about what else you stock with it. He probably couldn't get Aura while carrying California stuff, for example. Hate that BM is that way, but there you have it.

Both. I personally have worked with many painters. Our business mainly works with home service contractors -- painters, HVAC companies, electricians, etc.

With more and more lead generation companies angies, thumb homead, etc taking up more and more of the 10 spaces available. Assuming we all agree 2nd page is the dungeon right now, do you ever see 2nd page presence ever being more relevant some day???
I mean I was searching something the other day and counted 7 of the spots taken this way on the first page and I did look on the 2nd page for a direct contact #

This is because you are more educated than the average online user who doesn't know what lead generation is. You should be above the lead generation companies because you have a physical location. A majority of people never go past the first page of Google and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Google's goal is to provide the best results for the query and that makes page 1 the only page they need to view.

Google certainly wants to make as much money as possible (who doesn't?), but if they get too aggressive with it, at the expense of delivering the best user experience possible, it will end up backfiring.

They have to find the best balance between their paid listings (AdWords), where they make most of their money, and the unpaid (organic) listings, which is what keeps people coming back.

It seems the greatest fear is that Google will continue to expand with nationwide companies in industries, big and small, and that this übermonopoly will push the mom and pops down the listings. In turn, this will force more businesses to use AdWords.

It's possible, sure, but I'm skeptical it will happen. I think Google is smart enough to realize this level of monopolizing would turn a lot of people off, and have them running to Bing.

According to Moz (the largest Internet marketing site out there), there's been a sudden and dramatic rise in the number of ads showing up in Google searches. Now nearly 20% of all searches show ads, further pushing organic (unpaid) listings down the screen.

Google is constantly changing and always keeping us on our toes, righ??!! Listing directories, keyword rich content, and non-spammy high quality backlinks have helped us the most!!
