This is a commonly asked question, so we have decided to do a test. New York City has over 8 million people! We have bought a new domain > newyorkcityhandyman.net and we will be attempting to optimize it for these 3 keywords, “New York City Handyman”, “New York Handyman Services” and “New York City Handyman Service”. So far all 3 are on page 5 respectfully, not bad for a major market with tremendous competition! Once we get this to the first page we will be offering the website as a rental for New York City handymen. We are optimistic that we can accomplish this feat because we have already accomplished this before with our domain > newyorkcitygardner.com which ranks #1 for “New York city gardener“. This took us 7 months to achieve this ranking.
Every business category in every city is different as SEO (search engine optimization) results are dependent on many factors including the SEO on your competitions websites and whether it has been done properly. There are 2 kinds of SEO, black hat SEO which yields quick results but gets flagged and penalized by Google and will ruin a sites ranking, and white hat SEO, which is how we do it, in accordance with Google’s guidelines.
So far after 2 weeks we have been unsuccessful in getting our site to rank for our targeted keywords. Most SEO companies would give up at this point but because of our extensive experience and knowledge in search engine optimization we are just getting started.
We have added https to our domain to strengthen the authority so this should help. We have also added extensive images and optimized them and also added a tremendous amount of content to compliment our website and images, and we have cleaned up a lot of errors that we found which were conflicting with our targeted keywords. After using our Google tool box to reindex our website and submit a new sitemap we should be able to crack the top 20 pages on Google for our search query. Stay tuned as we will visit this in a few days and see where we stand. So long for now, Mark@acmewd.com
