  • Google adwords is it worth it?

    Did anyone try google adwords for their local business? There are 4 ads in my area on the first page. I'd like to know if you had any experiences or heard of any and what to expect.

    1) The first one seems to be an illegal company. They'll be removed I'm sure
    2) The second one is the biggest service plumbing company in the region.
    3) One of the worst company around.
    4) Mr Hooter from the other province.

    Did it get you on top of the first page?

    Did you get calls, did it land you jobs, were they mostly price shoppers?

    How much did you spend? Is max budget of 150$ a month feasible?

    What words did you use?

    Granted, most of my work is repeat/referral, I use a variety of listings/lead services, Google, ironically, yields me the least.
    Yelp is amazing. (in my area)
    As for Google, they're too big, they automate everything, forget reaching customer service to tweak your coverage or ask questions.
    With Google, I allowed them to place adwords on my website back around 10 years ago, they owed me money and I never got it, no number to call, nothing.

          Is your competition back in jail?

          I think one of mine just got out of spin dry.

                You never told us what they went to the Pokey for?

                Turd Burglars?

              Looks like you have your fair share of dilemmas. I have one now. It is nuts but I decided to ignore the threat and complaint.
