Local Business Directory Template with Gas Prices

I know I keep threatening to release the Xsitepro Local Business Directory Template and I apologize for the delay. I keep finding ways to improve the template and working on a script for rotating some of the contents.

The Mchenry Local Business Directory has been gaining visitors steadily and I haven’t really done anything with it. By that I mean, I haven’t added any more businesses or other content. I’ve been surprised at the number of returning visitors along with the steady increase of traffic. It’s not much, but Mchenry isn’t a very large town….in fact it’s quite small.

The performance is just as good, if not better than a wordpress blog.

I found 2 tricks that keeps Xsitepro sites ranking in the SERP’s and the rankings have staying power….that is they don’t drop in rank for the keywords I’ve targetted. Here’s 2 results:

Mchenry Oak Flooring Contractor

Mchenry Oak Flooring Contractor

Mchenry Oak Flooring Contractor

Or how about Mchenry Chiropractor

Mchenry Chiropractor

Mchenry Chiropractor

As you can see both keyword phrases are on Page 1 of Google. The best part is both businesses list for a handful of buying keywords each!

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I was experimenting on adding a script to the local business directory template that will hopefully turn browsers into regular visitors. I purchased a script that pulls in gas prices from across the country. I put up a quick page, however, I haven’t had a chance to customize the gas price page. The idea is simple. You simply enter the zip code or city and state and you’ll get the gas prices for your area. Check out Mchenry Gas Prices and let me know what you think of the idea!
