You need to be smart about building up your website. What that means is to go from the usual number of pages that a typical garage door website has. It usually has around 5 pages – Home, About Us, Services, Coupons, Contact Us. That somehow limits the indexation or the placeholders on the major search engines.

What you can do is mimic what other contractors do and add other services. Some of those other services include emergency garage door services, new garage doors, iron gate repair, welding service, and more. By creating a separate page for each of those services, you’re able to build up your website. This will also result in your website getting listed on the major search engines for the various keyword combinations.
