    Average SERP position of 2.0 and 0 clicks?
    Just beggars belief.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    That translates to 0.00625% hit rate with no clicks. Maybe the calculation was done from picking up magnetic fields of intention to click - man that's damn good

    Dave,
    are you registered on website for Pest Control?
    Is it your company? Or would you call yourself an expert?

    Gee, I didn't know I had to register on website to do pest control. As if one doesn't need enough registrations in this field already



    Heidje, I do happen to have a financial interest in, and some knowledge of the industry.
    How may I assist?

    Dave, my apologies. You were commenting on the search result of a Pest Control Site. What I was asking is are you registered on Contracting websites that should help with back links and rate you higher on Google, It will most probably also help with traffic to the site. Our company is always looking for sources for editorial and thus the reason for the other question. I will inbox you with more information.
