Builders Near Me!

In years gone by, if you needed a supplier, you had a couple of choices, Daltons Weekly, Yellow Pages or maybe Thompsons Local; how the world has changed. In this modern era of computers, the laptop, desktop or smartphone is the preferred work tool for so many people. With advanced search engines like Google, if you want to find high quality “builders near me” or “building companies near me” rather than flicking through hundreds of pages in the local directories, you simply fire up a search engine and type in what it is you want. More recently, you don’t even have to type anything into your device. With the introduction of Apps such as Google Assistant, Alexa, and Siri, you can use voice command and tell your device what you want. If you’re looking for a local and using Google you would typically say “Hi Google” and once the App responds, verbally ask it to find builders near me. If you have GPS switched on in your APPS, Google will do a fantastic job at delivering a local builder to you within seconds, and you’ll have yourself a list of companies as long as your arm.

Building Companies Near Me

As helpful as this is, things aren’t always what they seem. Ultimately, Google needs to make money, and it does this in several different ways. One way that we will all be familiar with is those annoying little pop-up adverts that appear like magic on every page we browse, the other more common route is through advertising on the search engine results pages or SERPS. As an advertising/marketing tool, Google’s algorithm delivers the things that we are interested in, and it’s staggering brilliant at doing just that. However, when you search for “builders near me” you don’t necessarily get what you are looking for, well, not on “page one” anyway. You see, Google’s wealth was, and continues to be, built on the back of advertising space which like a Dutch Auction, companies bid for based on how far up the rankings they want to be. So when you carry out your search for a local builder, the results delivered to you will be made up of a combination of a variety of companies. Typically the first and last three companies on the page will be companies that have advertised to be there. These are often large national brokers that have no experience at building anything except databases. In simple terms, their websites are designed to pool enquiries that get sold onto builders that are prepared to work in a particular area, not necessarily local to you though! The other companies on the page, typically ten of them, will then be a combination of directories and bonafide building companies. If you want to support your local community, these “organic” listings are probably your best bet.
