I've only had my website up for a limited time , But was pleased to see that my company already ranks quite highly in searches for my local service area on Google . I'm sure there is a lot more work to be done but for such a limited time on the internet I can't be unhappy . :yes:

I may or may nor be correct but, after looking at your words description in your source, I don't see how the other words are going to point to you. I do see that you have reference to "old bridge nj"...which makes sense but your other words may not mean much or may be too generic maybe?

I am in the process of updating some of my terms . There are more than a few there that I'd like to swap out for others .
Try and remember the Description meta tag is supposed to be a 'description' and not a list of keywords. Google doesn't appear to have penalised you yet but may well do in the future, there is some evidence that new websites can get a 'welcome boost' from google to begin with and then are treated to stricter guide lines once you've been crawled a few times so better to try and get rid of any black hat SEO tactics now rather than later:thumbsup:

Good job! Try signing out of your google account, better yet use private browsing as your history and location will factor into your results. Any time you can, search from another computer and se what the results are.
Here is what I get, the second one I changed my location to old bridge.

I hate that damn map. It totally screws services business' that work in on area and are located in another. Like me I don't live in the city, and my shop is on our farm, I get trumped by re re's who just have a city address.
I have that same problem, make sure your cities you work in are listed in the description, there is an option to change the "areas serviced" but I have heard there are bugs in it. You could also get a mailbox (not po) in the town and use that address, but then you would have to change all your addys to keep Google from penalizing you. It sucks!

I thought about doing that. I had heard the the UPS store gives you a street address, but I also heard it has a PO box in that so that idea went out the window. Google de-lists po boxes.

You can set up multiple locations for cities that way if you had a street address. I am like you thou Chris and have to cover many zip codes, and over 60 miles to reach the customers guys in big cities can get in 10 square miles.

When I crack that nut I will be sure to let you know how I did it.

If I was looking for Bobbo, I wouldnt be finding him. Not his facebook or nothing. I would probably assume that Bobbo wasnt painting anymore.
Well 1st off nobody is looking for Bobbo . If their looking for my company and Google my company name , There is plenty of information out there for customers to find me and my business . I've said it before " I would never hire a contractor off of FaceBook " . It shows a certain amount of legitimacy when a contractor takes the time and money to create his own website as opposed to any old Tom , Dick or Harry that can create a FaceBook page .

I had the keywords reworked . I think it helps to focus on my immediate area and I feel these words are stronger for the services I offer . IMO :D
