Google Launches Google Guaranteed for Locksmiths, Plumbers, and Handymen… What we found was interesting!

Well, on a daily search for a current client in the contractor world, we stumbled upon something pretty interesting; Google Guaranteed.

It looks like “Google Guaranteed” is rolling out a plan for guaranteeing work provided by locksmiths, plumbers, and handymen. This is to protect homeowners against locksmiths, plumbers, and handymen who are not licensed, bonded and screened.

Also, Google is making a step in increasing its measures on security against fraud and online scams.

What does it look like?

Google Guaranteed Screenshot

The Search Engine Journal wrote an article about this a while ago, stating;

Google is fighting back against fraud with an advanced verification process for handymen, plumbers, and locksmiths.

Locksmiths, plumbers, and handymen who are not licensed, bonded and screened are going to have a hard time going through this process to get a listing on Google My Business.

Showing Proof of License, Bond or Insurance will be Mandatory

If they do manage to get a listing or already have a listing on Google My Business, they will need to show proof that they are “Google Guaranteed” by uploading documents showing that they are licensed, bonded and screened.

Failure to prove that their company is licensed, bonded and screened will result in Google My Business removing their Google My Business page (YIKES). That will end up being hundreds of locksmith who will be in need of some serious recovery services.

How to Get Google Guaranteed?

how to get Google Guaranteed

  1. Create Your Listing on Google My Business
  2. Navigate to “Local Service Ads” of Google
  3. Enter in your NAP (Name, Address, Phone)
  4. Select and Set your Hours
  5. Select and Set your Cities
  6. Select and Set your Services
  7. Enter License Number
  8. Request reviews from clients
  9. Background Check
    1. Also background checks for all employees who enter customers home
  10. Upload insurance/bond/etc.
  11. Enter Billing
  12. Publish your local service ad

Keep in mind, we had to bold out “Enter Your License Number” 

After you have rolled through all the steps to complete your submission, you then need to complete advanced verification by finishing your application with a separate third-party website. This is all so new in the world of Google.

  • Finish your application with Google’s trusted partners at Pinkerton:

Here is the crazy part: Your application is going to take an additional two-four weeks to process and verify, that is if they are all caught up and on time. From Google directly; Complete your application with Pinkerton (this usually takes about 30 minutes). After you have finished your application, you will be notified within that two-week period if your application has been successful or denied. If you do not hear back of if you have any questions, you can email Google support directly at [email protected].

Will Google Guaranteed affect more than Locksmiths and Plumbers?

How will Guaranteed affect us?

This is the whole reason why we wrote this post in the first place.

We can see where you are heading with this one, Google.

Not that this is a bad thing for the homeowners and people looking to do business on a local level, but it definitely makes the local SEO companies jump through a couple more hoops to get set-up.

Any Inbound Marketing company is going to have to get familiar with this process to better understand how Google is now working with these industries.

Will Google Guaranteed Spread to More Industries?

This is a huge deal, not just for Locksmiths, plumbers, and handyman business models.

We can see the Google Guaranteed trend and the process to get Google Guaranteed spreading to any service that needs a license, bond, and insurance plan to do business. Google Guaranteed might have an effect on many industries: landscapers, kitchen builders, general contractors, flo
oring installers, arborist’s, carpet cleaners and basically any other service that has to be either “Certified” or “Licensed” in their field of expertise.

Why did Google Launch Google Guaranteed? — Locksmith Scams

Why did Google Launch Guaranteed

So how does the locksmith scam work?

  • You get locked out
  • You call a locksmith
  • The call is re-routed to an off-shore call center
  • They sell the lead to a shady locksmith
  • Shady locksmith shows up
  • Shady locksmith drills your lock instead of picking it (or looking for alternate method)
  • You get slapped with a big locksmith bill

The same scenario can be applied to almost any industry: plumbing, handyman, landscapers, contractors, etc. Most of whom are not licensed and just want to make an overly paid quick buck without providing any level of Quality Assurance.

Literally, Google will “Guarantee” the Work

 Google will

Pros that are pre-screened and insured is the goal that Google is going for here.

Google guarantees the job will be done right or your money back. Learn More Here

How The Google Guarantee Works

To reap the benefits from Google Guarantee, there are two steps:

  • Step 1: Activate the Google Guarantee by filling out a form on the link provided above. Once you enter in a few details about the job and the company name.
  • Step 2: Submit a claim about the company if issues do arise. You can also CALL GOOGLE DIRECTLY at (844) 885-0761 to submit a claim (This is a new one as well). The Google claim team will investigate the company and claim against the company to determine if your claim is valid or not. The team investigates and decides on a resolution.

What the Google Guarantee Covers

If you are dissatisfied with work quality, we’ll cover claims up to the job invoice amount, with a lifetime cap of $2,000.

The Catch: The job must be booked through the home services section of Google. Any additional payments to the contractor, locksmith, plumber or handyman will not be covered. Jobs completed before September 14, 2016, are not covered. Google just wants homeowners to be protected against fraud, which is understandable. You can also read the Google Guarantee FAQ section here.

How Does Google Guaranteed Look in the Future?

Future of Google Guaranteed

This is why we wrote this whole post. The future of Google Guaranteed is a little grey right now. No one has a true grasp on what Google Guaranteed can mean for local SEO companies or even every local service industry that needs a license number to operate. Google Guaranteed in the future may apply to every service industry on a local level.

This would include landscapers, kitchen builders, general contractors, flooring installers, arborist’s, carpet cleaners and basically any other service that has to be either “Certified” or “Licensed” in their field of expertise.

Again, this is not a bad thing. It is just a very interesting shift in Google’s positioning towards security with SSL’s and preventing scam and fraud on the internet.

What we thought was crazy about Google Guaranteed

After doing a search for “Outdoor Kitchen Builder Sacramento” and “Outdoor Kitchens Sacramento” on a mobile device, our client is still number one organically; however, dropped off the map. This was interesting because the map listing had been replaced with—you guessed it—HANDYMAN listings. NOOOOO, Google. No.

In what world does a homeowner want a handyman to show up and build them a $100,000 outdoor kitchen. In no world, that’s where.

We understand Google is still testing this new feature and we are sure that they will eventually fix this mistake.

Until then, it is going to be interesting to see what results they will display for home builders, contractors, remodelers and other higher priced items through Google Guaranteed.

Is Google testing other industries with new Google Guaranteed listings just to spread the word?

5 common computer problems you can fix yourself

  • 4d33b882-


  • 5877e8ca-


Computers always act up at the worst times. You’re in the middle of a major report or playing your best game ever and — pffft.

Often, users get so frustrated that they needlessly go out and buy a new computer or pay for a computer repair. With a cool head and a little know-how, however, it’s easy to fix the most common computer problems. In fact, the solutions I recommend below are free.

1. Speed up a sluggish PC

Computers slow down over time — that’s normal.

If your PC is fairly new and it’s slow, remove the pre-installed programs, or bloatware, that came with it. PC Decrapifier will remove trial programs and other junk in a snap.

To give an older PC a speed boost, break out the CCleaner. This tool looks through Windows, Web browsers and other third-party programs for unwanted clutter and gets rid of it. CCleaner can also scan and fix errors in Windows’ registry. Just make sure you allow it to backup the registry before making changes.

Grab Duplicate Cleaner to remove duplicate files that might be clogging up the system. But, limit your file hunt to the Documents area of your computer. You don’t want to accidentally delete important system files.

In your cleaning process, you might find programs you no longer need. Windows’ built-in uninstaller has a tendency to leave fragments scattered around your hard drive. You can remove those fragments efficiently with Revo Uninstaller.

2. The Blue Screen of Death

Thankfully, Windows’ dreaded “Blue Screen of Death” is getting to be a rare event, but it still occurs. When it does, it isn’t very helpful in helping you hunt down the problem.

The problem can often be traced to bad memory modules. Memory is cheap and buying extra RAM capacity is usually worth it for the performance boost. You can find out what kind of memory your computer takes with this scanner.

It’s not difficult to remove and install memory modules. You’ll find video tutorials at all the major online memory stores.

Just remember to ground yourself when you open your computer. You don’t want to fry sensitive electronics with static electricity.

3. The zombie spyware plague

A message pops up on your screen repeatedly, telling you to buy a security program. It happens so often that you can’t get any work done.

Your gut tells you that this is a rip-off, and your gut is correct. The message is adware that found its way on to your system, probably through an online ad for a “free” security scan you clicked on.

If you do download – and often pay for – the security program, you’ll end up with fraudware. No matter how many times you run the program it will always find the same problems and keep trying to get more money out of you.

Before you buy any security software, make sure it’s real. Use this site to stay current on fake antivirus programs.

Once you have fraudware, running a real antivirus program probably won’t help. To stop the pop-ups, you must run an anti-spyware program. There are a number of good ones — I’d start with Ad-Aware. You can find that and more legitimate free security software in my Security Center.

4. SD card stuck in CD/DVD slot

This is one for the Mac people. If you’re distracted or pre-occupied, it’s annoyingly easy to shove an SD camera card into an iMac’s superdrive. The two slots are right next to each other on the right side of the computer.

You don’t have to take the machine apart or ship it to a service center. The fix is easy. Cut an L-shape out of cardboard to use as a fishing hook. Slide it in and pull out the SD card. Watch this video to see how it’s done.

5. Network issues

If your wireless network is dead, your router, cable or DSL modem probably crashed. It happens. Reboot the gadgets by unplugging them for 30 seconds, then plugging them back in. That usually solves the problem.

If your signal is weak or the connection is slow or drops out, there are a few tricks you can try to improve your home Wi-Fi, such as the beer-can antenna booster. I made a fun video to show you exactly how to make your own. Watch it now.

What is SEO Search Engine Optimization 2020

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, which is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results.

What goes into SEO?

To understand the true meaning of SEO, let’s break that definition down and look at the parts:

  • Quality of traffic. You can attract all the visitors in the world, but if they’re coming to your site because Google tells them you’re a resource for Apple computers when really you’re a farmer selling apples, that is not quality traffic. Instead you want to attract visitors who are genuinely interested in products that you offer.
  • Quantity of traffic. Once you have the right people clicking through from those search engine results pages (SERPs), more traffic is better.
  • Organic results. Ads make up a significant portion of many SERPs. Organic traffic is any traffic that you don’t have to pay for.

Organic search traffic is specifically any unpaid traffic that comes from SERPs.

How SEO works

You might think of a search engine as a website you visit to type (or speak) a question into a box and Google, Yahoo!, Bing, or whatever search engine you’re using magically replies with a long list of links to webpages that could potentially answer your question.

That’s true. But have you ever stopped to consider what’s behind those magical lists of links?

Here’s how it works: Google (or any search engine you’re using) has a crawler that goes out and gathers information about all the content they can find on the Internet. The crawlers bring all those 1s and 0s back to the search engine to build an index. That index is then fed through an algorithm that tries to match all that data with your query.

There are a lot of factors that go into a search engine’s algorithm, and here’s how a group of experts ranked their importance:


That’s all the SE (search engine) of SEO.

The O part of SEO—optimization—is where the people who write all that content and put it on their sites are gussying that content and those sites up so search engines will be able to understand what they’re seeing, and the users who arrive via search will like what they see.

Optimization can take many forms. It’s everything from making sure the title tags and meta descriptions are both informative and the right length to pointing internal links at pages you’re proud of.

Learning SEO

This section of our site is here to help you learn anything you want about SEO. If you’re completely new to the topic, start at the very beginning and read the Beginner’s Guide to SEO. If you need advice on a specific topic, dig in wherever suits you.

Here’s a general overview:

Building an SEO-friendly site

Once you’re ready to start walking that SEO walk, it’s time to apply those SEO techniques to a site, whether it’s brand new or an old one you’re improving.

These pages will help you get started with everything from selecting an SEO-friendly domain name to best practices for internal links.

Content and related markup

A site isn’t really a site until you have content. But SEO for content has enough specific variables that we’ve given it its own section. Start here if you’re curious about keyword research, how to write SEO-friendly copy, and the kind of markup that helps search engines understand just what your content is really about.

On-site topics

You’ve already learned a lot about on-site topics by delving into content and related markup. Now it’s time to get technical with information about robots.txt.

Link-related topics

Dig deep into everything you ever needed to know about links from anchor text to redirection. Read this series of pages to understand how and when to use nofollow and whether guest blogging is actually dead. If you’re more into the link building side of things (working to improve the rankings on your site by earning links), go straight to the Beginner’s Guide to Link Building.

Other optimization

Congratulations! You’ve mastered the ins and outs of daily SEO and are now ready for some advanced topics. Make sure all that traffic has the easiest time possible converting with conversion rate optimization (CRO), then go micro level with local SEO or take that site global with international SEO.

The evolution of SEO

Search engine algorithms change frequently and SEO tactics evolve in response to those changes. So if someone is offering you SEO advice that doesn’t feel quite right, check in with the specific topic page.

For a more technical look at SEO, check out this short video from Rand Fishkin.

Go forth and SEO…

IBM Founding, History, Products

IBM, in full International Business Machines Corporation, leading American computer manufacturer, with a major share of the market both in the United States and abroad. Its headquarters are in Armonk, New York.

It was incorporated in 1911 as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company in a consolidation of three smaller companies that made punch-card tabulators and other office products. The company assumed its present name in 1924 under the leadership of Thomas Watson, a man of considerable marketing skill who became general manager in 1914 and had gained complete control of the firm by 1924. Watson built the then-floundering company into the leading American manufacturer of punch-card tabulating systems used by governments and private businesses. He also developed a highly disciplined and competitive sales force that adapted the company’s custom-built tabulating systems to the needs of particular customers.

In 1933 IBM purchased Electromatic Typewriters, Inc., and thereby entered the field of electric typewriters, in which it eventually became an industry leader. During World War II, IBM helped construct several high-speed electromechanical calculators that were the precursors of electronic computers. But the firm refrained from producing these electronic data-processing systems until Watson’s son, Thomas Watson, Jr., became president of the company in 1952 and sponsored an all-out push into that field. Having entered the computer field, IBM’s size allowed it to invest heavily in development. This investment capability, added to its dominance in office-calculating machines, its marketing expertise, and its commitment to repair and service its own equipment, allowed IBM to quickly assume the predominant position in the American computer market. By the 1960s it was producing 70 percent of the world’s computers and 80 percent of those used in the United States.

IBM’s specialty was mainframe computers—i.e., expensive medium- to large-scale computers that could process numerical data at great speeds. The company did not enter the growing market for personal computers until 1981, when it introduced the IBM Personal Computer. This product achieved a major share of the market, but IBM was nevertheless unable to exercise its accustomed dominance as a maker of personal computers. New semiconductor-chip–based technologies were making computers smaller and easier to manufacture, allowing smaller companies to enter the field and exploit new developments such as workstations, computer networks, and computer graphics. IBM’s enormous size hindered it from responding rapidly to these accelerating rates of technological change, and by the 1990s the company had downsized considerably. In 1995 IBM purchased Lotus Development Corporation, a major software manufacturer.

In 2002 IBM sold its magnetic hard drive business for $2.05 billion to the Japanese electronics firm of Hitachi, Ltd. Under the terms of the sale, IBM agreed to continue producing hard drives with Hitachi for three years in a joint venture known as Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. In 2005 Hitachi took full control of the joint venture and IBM stopped building a device that it had invented in 1956. In December 2005 IBM sold its personal computer division to the Lenovo Group, a major Chinese manufacturer. In addition to cash, securities, and debt restructuring, IBM acquired an 18.9 percent stake in Lenovo, which acquired the right to market its personal computers under the IBM label through 2010. With these divestitures, IBM shifted away from manufacturing so-called commodity products in order to concentrate on its computer services, software, supercomputer, and scientific research divisions.

Since 2000, IBM has placed one of its supercomputers consistently at or near the top of the industry’s list of most powerful machines as measured by standardized computation tests. In addition to producing supercomputers for governments and large corporations, IBM’s supercomputer division, in cooperation with the Toshiba Corporation and the Sony Corporation of Japan, designed the Cell Broadband Engine. Developed over a four-year period beginning in 2001, this advanced computer chip has multiple applications, from supercomputers to Toshiba high-definition televisions to the Sony Playstation 3 electronic game system. IBM also designed the computer chips for the Microsoft Corporation Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Company Wii game systems. IBM became the first company to generate more than 3,000 patents in one year (2001) and, later, more than 4,000 patents in one year (2008). The company now holds more than 40,000 active patents, which generate considerable income from royalties.
