    Good website pics will trump the year of the car. My White 120" is a 2000 model, people don't even care though when they see the pics or the actual car in-person. My area is one of those that can't justify newer cars, a 1998-2002 body is still totally acceptable.

    I also have 2 websites, the main is www.PreLimo.com but the second is geared toward the sedan market, www.DaytonAirportSedanTransportation.com . They both work well and draw the business that I am looking for.

    First off, my original website was www.limokings.net , but then I was advised to get another website with San Diego in it, so I got www.limo-sandiego.com

    My main question is which site do I try and market. I'm guessing both. But which one is more important. I'm not even sure which one is linked(forwarded) to the other. I think the limokings is forwarded to the limo-sandiego, but I would appreciate some good advice as to how to go forward. So basically, do I tell people to go to the www.limokings.net or the www.limo-sandiego.com? Am I wasting money having both?

    As far as my web page, there are a bunch of things I want to change. Updated pictures, and more content. But I could use your help. Thanks.
    It looks like you have www.limokings.net forwarded to www.limo-sandiego.com with www.limo-sandiego.com being the main domain name. I have noticed relevant domain names do help with ranking.
    You do need to get some updated pictures on the site and maybe a pic of you with the Limo dressed to impress instead of the pic of what I assume is you next to the Excursion. Can't wait to see the new interior.

    All you need to do is to put one basic company logo and try the customers to contact you through search engine optimization so you can tell your company website for the next transportation requirement or just leave it as it really matters to customer to get the quick feed back .

    Digger,

    Your website is ranking pretty well. Although I do not see it listed in http://www.google.com/places/ you should add your websites (both of them to this ASAP). Google places results are taking over and your missing a lot of business without this set up.

    I agree the year of the car does not make a huge impact, but the images of it does. You can get some great images of your exact limo from places like this:http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-pho...-side-view.php

    Generally from an SEO perspective, your website is pretty good, although you could possibly use a few more keywords within your Title Tags, both on the home page and your internal pages. You could also use some more links (this is always the tricky part). To start with change your signature here in the forums, using keyword anchor text, like Dayton Limos rather then your URL.

    If your looking to give your website a face lift, a really good resource is a website like http://99designs.com/ you can get a really clean website built for about $600. The nice thing about this service is you will get multiple designers, and multiple designs to choose from....one note, if you us this service make sure you specify that you want the website design and you require it to be "coded". This may cost you another $100 but unless your an HTML coder, having a design without the code it of no use.

    Hope this helps.

    Geoff,

    Yes http://www.limokings.net is redirected to http://www.limo-sandiego.com/ one problem is the type of redirect your using. Your using a 302 redirect which does not provide a passing of seo rankings from one website to the other. You need to change this to a 301 redirect.

    You should also make sure you have http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ set up for all your websites, it is really easy.

    Limo Kings is the better domain, it is older and has more authority. That being said if you have the budget to build and manage 2 websites keep both, otherwise do a proper 301 redirect from one to the other. I would stick with Limo Kings myself. It might be worth looking into buying http://limokings.com/ as would not want someone to buy this and use it to compete against you. jon@eic.com owns this domain http://www.eic.com/

    Other than that the same things mentioned above apply to your website about Google Places, and a design resource.

    Good Luck.
