    You won't come up on google either I've been told it costs thousands for that, it's nice to have for someone to look at but any work I have had since having this has come from facebook where they have clicked on the link,it's the miss selling I'm disappointed at they told me it would climb the rankings after a few months, they cold called me as well never a good sign.

    Greens comes up on google pretty sure hid never cost thousands.

    All depends on indexing and key wording etc. Also linking it with other stuff like yelp etc.

    Cold calling you for what? Renewal?

    Done all that most large districts of Birmingham and services keywords, registered with Yell, Scoot, Thompson etc, I know someone who knows about how this works unless you spend thousands to compete with big business it would take years to climb up google. They cold called me to sell it.

    If that's the case I don't know what has happened with me I have only tinkered with mine a bit as yet but considering I gave them some information and they created it looked quite professional.

    Maybe they had codes or passwords that stopped google indexing the site

    Ye seems a bit of a weird one.
    Tbh I'm completely clueless with the website side of things and have just left it all to him and he has done a great job so far.
    Maybe worth an enquiry from you to see what he would charge. Not to sure of the set up costs to be honest.
