Thank you - we use the coolest site design for idiots program called Web Studio - drag & drop and voila, website!

California is a little out of our delivery range and actually, we are now fresh out of pups (thank goodness!)

OK OK, I got rid of the checkers, and I agree consitency is key. I think I will omit pricing atleast most. What background color changed? anyway thanks for the advice. P.S I may look into that web design software.

if you do look into web design software look into a program called coffee cup. It is really easy to learn and use.

Celeste,

Did you know that you can start a blog on your site that nobody sees? This blog can be a place for you to write articles about wood care, concreteoverlays, pressure cleaning etc... Those key words won't be visually messing up the site as seen to the world but will non-the-less be there in the files of your host server for the search engines to pick up on. Also, if you'd like, you can always link to and from it on your site or from your signature to attract the search engines. It is a good way to educate consumers also and to get your writing juices flowing.

This is a great idea and I wish more people would do it. We've had a few guys get top ranking for a few key terms just from linking to their site from ContractorTalk.com and nothing else.

One tip though is to use key words to link to your site instead of just a web address. Use a term someone might search for like "Dallas Carpet Cleaners" or whatever.

I know it's hard to start a site...but what bothers me the most about your site are all the spelling & punctuation errors. When I'm looking for someone to provide a service...I notice that kind of thing right away.
Keep tweaking it... Don't give up!

Hey all, I unpublished that site. I agree it was not professional enough. I have purchased several domain names and am currently working on them. Thanks for all your input and I will post the new site here when I feel its up to par.

Also you can use lots of content that visitors will see and be educated.
What is good for the search engines can be good for the visitors.

hello...I was just hoping to pick up some professional cleaning tips. I've got a good business, but sometimes, don't seem to meet my client's rigid standards.

Welcome Extremecleaner, you have come to the right place for tips. Is there any specific area that you would like tips for (hiring, cleaning, etc...)

I guess I'm just trying to figure out how to achieve perfection. I have a small crew working for me, but we all generally clean houses and businesses alone. I occassionally check their work, and generally am satisfied with their end result. It is me I would like to fine tune. I just can't quite achieve that 'nirvana' that makes one the perfect cleaner.

New MrMoms.biz

Hey all, I have been working on a new site, and no its not finished and most likely will never be. A few grammer issues, still using dial-up, so this is driving me crazy! and I must stop before I break something.

Anyway, what do you think of the logo? any color changes I should make?

Also, I own www.mrmoms.biz www.mrmoms.info and www.mrmomscleaning.com
all of them redirect back to one site, so wich one should I advertise? I think mrmoms.biz , easy to remember. Or mrmomscleaning.com, maybe the .com is easier to remember but longer???

Later, JP

P.S, Lisa, I like the site, but Im not sure about the domain name. It may be a bit tough to remember, allthough I cant think of a better one, so keep it LOL MMMI.com maybe?
