Yellow Pages & Thomson are both business models that are dying and their web presense is not well placed, too little too late. We stopped using them 2 years ago because it made little if any difference to our income.

Long tail searches are very easy to rank for just a carefully worded title in the landscaping & design space should be enough.

Not sure I'd recommend Blogger from a business or SEO/SEM perspective, Word Press or Drupal are far better options IMHO.

"Blogs and social media is now the most effective medium to take your business forward"- Are you serious?

I hope this does not reflect your business sense.

I am not saying yellow pages is the best or worst. I also am not in the landscaping industry. However I do know blogs are pretty much worthless when it comes to growing a business. If I need a landscape contractor I do not want to read 50 posts (like this) about why I should/should not call someone. When have a need for a service you want a phone #, not a 10 page essay.

Thanks for your comment.

Please share this with us, after all, if I am wrong I need to know why.

I am not sure why you visited this thread to find a landscaper but please, feel free to visit http://www.landscapejuice.ning.com for a landscaper in your area.
