Hello world!

Posted: February 26, 2009 by Thos003 in Uncategorized

Welcome to SEOpestcontrol.com. This is our first post. We are adventuring out into the great wide world of Pest Control SEO.  Currently we have over 24 million competing websites for “Pest Control” .  The three key players are Orkin, Terminix, and DoYourOwnPestControl.com.

Bulwark hopes to take a first page position within 12 months.  Ranking in right now at 350 on a good day. Is it possible?  Can it be done?  Can a family owned pest control service beat billion dollar pest control companies?

There certainly is going to be a challenge ahead.  Both Orkin and Terminix have added 20,000+ inbound links in the past 6 months.

I am sure that this will be one of the many blogs that will be anxiously watching this showdown.  David meets Goliath in the 20th century on Google.  Except that’s two giants they are facing up against.

We favor the underdog.

    You have a great chance of beating the big guys on the block. Way to go. Yes, they have lots of links, but they bought most of them. Are they quality links? Let them drown in the cost of those paid links, while we go for quality. Truly, Orkin, DoItYourself, do they have quality links? Only Google knows.

      You make some great points. I really hope that we can beat them. I am sure that if we get enough smaller guys together that they won’t stand a chance!

    you look to be taking this very seriously so you should do very well. im still learning about seo and spend more time on it than i do actually treating pests.

      Make sure that you focus on the primary objective of your business first, and that is taking care of the bugs. After that, I would focus on building your customer relations and focusing on exceeding their expectations. You will get the most from your efforts by impressing your customers. You get them talking and business will start flowing in. Lastly, focus on your marketing and web presence.

      Of course, if you are balanced you can allocate your time to do all of these things, as they are all important, but just make sure that you stay balanced.

    Hi Thomas,

    So it is almost one year now. How are your stats compared to the original big three (I won’t even mention their names)?

    Happy New Year,

    Gerry

      Well Gerry it’s pretty interesting in that we have come closer to our goal… but the game has changed. A year ago google wasn’t trying to personalize the search results. They didn’t have the local maps at all. So, progress has been made but it’s a moving target.

      How has your online presence been going?
