Talking I'm 4th on GOOGLE page ranking!!! I never even tried anything!

Wholly cow, I don't know what I did. I never even finished my web site, or put on my phone number b/c the site wasn't done!

How the hell could this happen? There are about 30-40 computer repair companies in my area. I only have the words "computing solutions" in the name of my company and domain.

So, does anyone what to check out what I did and what I can do to make it better? I'm going to be at least #2 if not #1 by next year!

I just did "manheim computer repair" and came up 4th.

How do you check backlinks?

The competition of that keyword is <10 searches a month however so it wont count for much. I would recommend targeting a better keyword.

What would be a better word to target? I have the city/town, computer and repair, all of which I do. I guess I would rather do small business support so I guess I would have to figure out how to focus on that..

Well there are tons of keywords you can target for traffic, but the easy ones for you would be

lancaster computer repair - 480 searches a month with low competition

it business solutions - 5,400 a month with medium competition

There are a lot more you can target, but I save those for clients. However you just need to be creative to find them.

Thanks for the info. So what would be a good place to start to learn this stuff. I know Bryce said to "stick to being the Idea man" but that doesn't pay in times like these. I HAVE lots of time to learn and the abilite and desire. I'm guessing SEO is a good start but Isee so many SEO classes and what not, many of which seem like scams.

So, could you lend any more insite here? Muchas Gracias!

Well classes may be great but most of the information is freely avaliable on the internet. I started with my own site and got it ranked in the top 5 for about 10 keywords and then did it again with a family friends. At that point I put it on my resume and got hired by an SEO company which is where I learned a lot. You just have to look around, but be careful. However tempting "blackhat seo" looks 9 out of 10 will get your site banned or sandboxed. Experience is the big ticket item though you need to keep up with google and find new creative ways to get backlinks to succeed.

Use Google Keyword Tool to generate keywords, cpc, and local frequency for your area.

These keywords and appropriate optimisation of your site and backlinks to rank for them are critical if you want to market yourself online

Also, consider Adwords, if you havent already. It will fill the gap until you're ranking organically. Be careful how you set it up though as it can be like putting money into a bonfire.
