Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
my main rival has a website all about central heating boilers and generating leads for them and selling them on.
i am actually a gas engineer and hope to develop a similar site to that one.
my question is what kind of traffic does a site ranked 8600 in the uk with alexa generate?
obviously using lead generation would yield less income than actually taking on the jobs first hand. its very big business so thats why i wanted to ask for any advice before i start.
every UK home has a boiler and a new boiler would cost at least £1500 supply and fit, half would be labour- so theres lots of income for a site ranked high, or number one!
If you are looking to create a new site in a saturated niche to rank nationally then I suspect that you are going to spend too much time on your site and too little on the day job. I would suggest aiming to rank on searches that reference town or county and build your reputation regionally first.
