Do you have to sell against them a lot there?
I use some of the webmaster tools, I like to see how many links google is counting and what pages are indexed with them. However, I like the backlink tool better from Yahoo. It shows more of the links, whereas google seems to pick and choose what links it will show you...
We are nationwide as well so we sell against paychex pretty often, I guess. We have numerous customers who have used them in the past, but Paychex has so many clients, I am sure they don't even know about us...
We are MUCH smaller than they are, but we just cracked page one of google for "payroll services" and "payroll solutions", so maybe they have taken note, but honestly, I doubt it. They were actually an inspiration for us, and they continue to set the standard in the industry.
