I am sitting thinking to myself. Why the heck has my website been just dead. I mean I been contacted 2 times in the last 2 months.
I look at last year at this time and I was kicking arse. So obviously I am thinking my site stinks, better change it… wait, not so fast bucko.
I thought to myself, self, is it possible no one is looking? Normally I would just think my site was a turd. Then I noticed that craigslist has been just insane with established companies advertising. Everyone knows craigslist is horrible for this type of “come into your home” service. So it is usually filled with lowballer guys with no real company.
I thought to myself, self, go see if people are searching for window cleaning. To my surprise I find the numbers as low as I have seen, ever. No one here is searching. My number 1 search keyword is at 81 impressions for the last 7 days (which have been beautiful days)
Last year it would have been over 300, just for that keyword! Now imagine how many of those searches are window cleaners checking on their position because of the dead silence. I am on there everyday looking.
Why have all these real companies started groveling on craigslist with the dregs? I mean they put new ads on everyday to stay at the top of the searches! That is a pain in the arse, they are desperate.
I don’t know how your areas are doing as it comes to PPC or your site. But it is bad here…
I predict possibly the most competitive year I have seen.
