Pest Control in Boston

Not much of a Daddy Blog these days, however all the work that has gone into this blog is now being exploited in my entrepreneurial life. I am blogging about carpenter ants, termites and rats, I am directing the search engines to my company website and I am seeing how it goes. My hope is to recreate the success I had optimizing the Tutu Boutique. Wish me luck

That was a trial, surviving an hour long, snooze-a-thon, while keeping a two year old boy who is jacked up on a blood sugar rush, fueled by chocolate and jelly beans occupied is tough. I am worn out, the six year old and four year old were not much better, opposite in fact. They were coming down and felt that the pew we were in was their own personal park bench. They did not understand why I kept insisting that they sit up. They lack training, these little ones. I am remiss in their lack of discipline, how are they suppose to know how to behave if there is no practice.

I don't want to practice either, I do not understand how the principal of the Easter Sunday celebration, can take a room, full to the brim, with an audience craving a message, and put them all to sleep. The Priest was so interested in the sound of his voice that he missed a gigantic opportunity. I am sure that this man has not had such a packed house since he put us all to sleep at Christmas. If he had delivered a concise message, that prompted us to reflect, I may have wanted to return next week. Instead I was left trying to keep two kids awake and trying to stop the third from mooing at the top of his lungs.

The Irish Catholic side of me insists that we start attending regularly, the sane part of me asks, why?

Maybe I need a more dynamic congregation, or leader of a congregation.

Pest Control in Boston

My family has been in the pest control business for over thirty years. My father started the company I work for now back in 1979, before that he worked in the industry for another company.
The way our industry has traditionally reached out to residential customers has been the yellow pages. The yellow pages are very costly, you can easily run up a tab into the thousands of dollars every month. We have made a decision to slowly extract ourselves from these yellow pages and have been looking into signing on with the directories which list you on the first page of google for the key words you select. The most prominent key word/search term being, Pest Control in Boston. Instead of handing over the money, I decided to see if I can use the weight of this blog to draw the search engines attention to my business that pays the bills.
It seems to have worked, The Tutu Boutique blog is currently residing on the first page of google search results for the term Pest Control Boston. I just wish I could get the bug blog as well recognized. I am posting results of inspections and services over there, in hopes that that blog will be recognized by thge search engines with out having to depend on Tutus to get recognition.

Pest Control Boston

I haven't been posting much over here, needless to say, I have been busy with other things.

One of the things I have been doing is posting results of pest inspections in Boston at my Bug Blog.

We are chasing rats over there and I am documenting it.
