Yes Logan, I KNOW.
But unfortunately, several people who learned roof cleaning at the RCIA Forum no longer want this knowledge shared with others!
They fear local competition, or the roof cleaning customer learning how to clean their own roofs!
I have tried to make everyone happy Logan, even closed the forum to please them.
The result is the number one ranking we once had is GONE.
As I watched what I worked so hard for slipping away, I re opened the forum in desperation, and the result was a new roof cleaning forum opened and formed by the disgruntled.
W/O a high Google ranking, my guys will not get much work, if people can't find them in a Google Roof Cleaning Search!
I have the RCIA Roof Cleaning Training Forum completely open to search engines now, and the Public, except one sub forum.
But, to Post, you need to register.
You just can't please everyone, no matter how hard you try
