Come on now, really? These are not organic results and even they have 50% success in delivering good returns.
The organic results are dominated by yelp and citysearch, both websites having nothing to do with watch repair. In other words, the big boys still take the traffic, while the small guy is out cold.
My point is that not a single watch repairman in NY is actually ranked for the search of a watch repair in New York.
Now, compare this with the same search on Bing. I don't know about you, but I see four watch repair companies ranking in the organic results, not the local box. And the #1 result is...wait for it... a watch repair company in New York! Can you believe it?!? The audacity...
Before all those algo changes, this is exactly how it would've been on google, too. But now - forget about it. If you still believe that the small guy can win the battle through great service and product, I can only wish you good luck.
