    mac book repairs
    Just thought I'd post an item on here for the readers to show whats going on with apple mac repairs - worldwide, in late 2017 google silently banned all ads from their paid results meaning when a person types in google "mac repairs" "apple repairs" "iMac repairs" or any derivative containing the word repair and associated with 3rd party repairers then the results will no longer show up any paid ads thus limiting the consumers choice to only organic/local results - if anyone wants a better choice you would be advised to type your actual problem in the search bar as these results still show ads so for arguments sake if you spill liquid onto your macbook then type macbook liquid spill thus giving you better results - as an owner of a business that has taken years to build google have basically just almost wiped us out and possibly never allowing us to advertise again will cost thousands of businesses to fold and go pop

    Get yourself a local Web designer who isn't just a kid or a mom working from her kitchen table, but someone who really knows what they are doing. Then talk to them about manipulating the "meta-data" on your Web site so that your Web site will show up in any search by potential customers. A good Web designer will know exactly what I'm talking about and will be able to easily do what's necessary to make your Web site easy to find for potential customers. A hack Web designer will stand there with their mouth open and not have a clue. You should run from the latter.

    This is known as "Search engine optimization (SEO)" and you can do it yourself, but it will take some reading:
