Top level domains like SidingInstallation.com are extremely valuable… but why?

WELL… if you were searching for “Siding Installation” would you be more likely to click on a link for SidingInstallation.com or Home-Siding-Contruction-Guys.info ? Ya, we know – obvious right.?. Another thing to keep in mind is that there is ONLY ONE SidingInstallation.com in the whole wide world. That’s pretty significant as well.

Please allow me illustrate:
Advertising on Google’s AdWords to generate new clients can be very competitive, very expensive and every advantage is like gold. And when someone searches on Google the exact keywords are highlighted, subsequently drawing attention to certain ads and not others.  Keep in mind, it only takes people a fraction of a second to pick which link they will click and a slight advantage can make a HUGE difference in your bottom line.

Hardboard siding can be very vulnerable to mold and rot, especially down near the foundation or in spots that stay shaded.
