A web developer starting a window cleaning business


Hi John or @windowcleaningxl

I own a Window Cleaning and Pressure Washing business just 15 minutes down the road from you. I am in Ajax, you are in Toronto.

My business is exactly 1 year old as of this Month. I would like to give you a bit of a challenge. Beat my traffic ranking in the .ca domain. Here are comparative screen shots of the traffic ranking of our sites:

You currently have no data or ranking, and I am in the top 68,000 of websites in Canada (nothing to be proud of, I know!). However, I am not a professional web developer, and made my site myself.

Wouldn’t it be a cool benchmark for you to beat my ranking and show what you can do?


Hey, not a bad website! Good job.



Challenge accepted then?


Anyone want to build me a website?:joy:


I’m not the only one, and I don’t have a dog in the fight as I sold my web agency last month. You are more than welcome to reach out to the forum owners to inquire about becoming a vendor.

Just saying, this ain’t my first rodeo, and your post is probably about the 30th conversation of this sort I’ve had, each one ending in someone trying to sell their design and / or SEO services. Maybe I’m wrong, but it would be a first in scenario like this.

There is no further justification or clarification necessary. Enjoy the forum as a window cleaner.


Who really cares if he was selling something on the side? Most guys here aren’t going to buy services from someone who just shows up out of the blue anyway. As it is, much of the ‘advice’ that new guys get here is so biased to support only certain vendors.


After Paul MacQuillan, the Legend of Doug etc it was decided that people couldn’t sell web services on the forum without permission. A lot of people got ripped off in those days.

I don’t get paid for modding this forum, its a labor of love. However, although I don’t do it much, when I have to actually moderate there’s a reason behind it.
