    Hey Mastercraft,
    I think it’s interesting that your posting my posts on your blog, HOWEVER, don’t you realize that this practice will NOT help your blog AT ALL!
    This is simply due to the fact that the Google God considers it Duplicate Content, Which It Is! and they PUNISH your for it, or I guess a nicer word may be PENALIZE – and Believe me, They DO! (Notice your Alexa – 19 million +) Please understand that I’m trying to help you, because this practice actually Damages my Website as well, So Please Don’t Do This Anymore!
    Google DOES like and Reward people for creating Original Content – that is placed on Your Blog or website.
    SO – what I would encourage you to do is start writing about Your HVAC experiences and current trends and this will help your blog rank better and get traffic too.
    I guess I should offer this, if you want to get found in a particular location for your business let me know. I know very well how to do this, and we may be able to come to some arrangement.
    If you are a company that has been hired to start that blog and get traffic then you have it all wrong. The blog looks nice, but that does NOTHING to get you found on the internet.
    Send me an email through the website if you wish.
