    That Redwood must have something up his sleeve... He's getting about 7 listings per page....




    Hubspot's Grader is okay as long as you look at it in a General Sense, the accuracy of their scanner is not all that great...
    As long as you can discount their inaccuracies it gives some general ideas of what you have to do...

    Here's one that I just put up recently...
    Still new and working on it...
    But coming along nicely...

    I think I see some differences when rt clicking and viewing source when comparing yours and mine. I have more blue and red words....lol...sad...but that's all I really managed to see. Curious about what "<li><strong>" this means or if I even need to know. Also another difference I picked up on.

    I don't understand how you have so many listings. I will say this, changing my page names and adding the city and zips to the site has bumped me up very quickly for leak detection. Still not seeing much for drain cleaning though. Much to learn and do.

    Those are HTML tags, List is just what it says it is, and strong is the same thing as bold.
    Those aren't too important it's just appearance...

    What is important is which site has more of something that you can actually read and make sense of instead of:
    <style type="text/css">

    I am not picking up the differences or reasons for what is good or bad.

    Where did you hide this page? http://allthingsdrain.com/sewer-and-...-new-london-ct

    It's there... You found it, Right?

    It just isn't linked from the main website pages... But it links to the rest of the site...

    As for the simpler page source why hide what you want indexed in searches under a pile of code?

    No, I didn't find it. I just assumed it was a sub page that wasn't indexed. Once on the page the only way I would be able to find it again was to backup or redo the search. It is awesome how it is linked to everything. The tags at the bottom were neat to. Seems like a great way to get your keywords in and put people where they need to be and learn more about it without being totally redundant on multiple pages.

    It looks like this is not a hobby for you. Do you have your own servers and do SEO or do you just build the sites?

    Well it is redundant and there are multiple pages, but it doesn't appear to be that way, so the site appears to be clean.

    Yes, I dabble a bit on the web, and I tend to get carried away at excelling in my hobbies, especially when they can generate income, you should try fishing against me in a Bass Tournament sometime....
    Being good at what you do isn't as hard, it's a lot like comparing the abilities of a DIY'er that tries to clean a drain the first time to one of us.
    They might get it right if all the planets pull into their once every 3,000 year alignment, while we just pull in and go through the drill, making it look easy, and we do it time after time every day.
    Or, my fishing, where a typical tournament record for the year with 13 tournaments, might look like 12 of them in the top 3 money spots, 8 of them being wins, and a few of the taking the biggest fish money pool wins.
    It's fun to convert something you like to do into making money.
    I kind of go by the do it right or, don't do it at all....
    At 56 years old I know my days working as a plumber are limited, and I'm looking at a number of ways to generate supplemental income. I have servers, do SEO, and build sites.

    Working on the web seems to be fun, it fits in well, especially with a mobile connection in the truck between jobs...
    Sitting in the truck away from home between jobs, it's easy to keep busy and avoid boredom.
    I had/have an excellent teacher and I've learned to be quite good at it....
