A funny plumbing commercial

So first of, want to give some link love to my friend’s new plumbing business Guillen Plumbing . From the reviews that they’re getting from Service Magic, seems like they’re doing a good job so if you happen to be in the Rio Grand Valley area in Texas and have plumbing issues, definitely go ahead and give them a call! =)

On a side note, if you search for “Guillen Plumbing” now on Google, you’ll see that there’s a “rip off report” of a seperate company in Miami called “Guillen Enterprises”. Even though this is a completely different company operating in a completely different area, having such listing on Google next to yours is never a good thing and thus my business partner asked me for advice on how to get rid of it.

Now there’s no real way to “get rid” of a listing on Google, but there are ways to make mutiple pages to outrank it such that it is no longer visible on the first page (or at least on top of the page). I recommended her to create a page on Twitter, youtube, Facebook (fan page) and Squidoo, and give them some links so those pages can outrank the report. It is always good to have multiple listings of various source representing your company when people search for your company’s name, because you get to control what your prospective customers will think of you. If you do a search on Google for “Dominic Lee”, you’ll find that almost all of the top page listings belong to me. =)
