As many of you know I believe SEO works best when used in a small niche, local services by definition are a small niche.

I built my wife "Hazel" a wordpress website for one of her businesses, I recently added a blog, I have yet to add a user name so posts temporarily say posted by "administrator" and I am adding categories later today.

However for those of you that are new, I thought I would show you what can be done.

We are not usually supposed to put links in our WA blog posts, however as it is clear 99.9% of you live outside Hazels catchment area, so you can see that this link is not here for commercial reasons.

Although I will say, Facebook likes on the blog posts and positive relevant comments would be appreciated should you be inclined.

very impressive! Did you custom author a theme or choose one to base it on? Not a vast distance from me btw :)

i bought a package that offered a limited addition theme, I bought it some months ago, then just needed to customize, I can use the theme as many times as I like indifferent industries but not more than once in the same.

So I did this for a relative http://professionalfloors.co.uk

Hi Jeff
Really liked the site. It was clean, practical and calming which is not a word that I would usually associate with a website.
First impressions :- straight away I felt that it was a site I could trust. Straight to the point and very functional.
Many thanks for sharing. Take care.

Very nice. I like sites that minimize words and make it easy to read the content. A lot can be said with very few words.

Hey Jeff! Great website, but I'd like to make a recommendation, feel free to disagree :) I feel like the hours of operation table at the bottom of your page could do with being centralized, so as to minimize the empty space to the right of it.
Reply
JeffWhenman Premium
You are absolutely right the space is wasted, maybe I could think of something to do with it.

Good afternoon Jeff,

That is a crisp and tidy website you got for your wife, I hope she is doing well.

Many thanks, she always does well, hopefully by adding more SEO we can get rid of her small but regular Google PPC bill.

Lol.... The laugh that I got from it being "clear that 99.9% of you live outside Hazels catchment area" was worth reading your post. Very true!

I hope that you have a wonderful day. I'm going to check out what you have been able to do so far.
