Tree services UK. Websites, what going on?

Recommended Posts

Until about a two years ago I ran a business 'Morland Tree Services.' from Morland near Penrith. Morland being the name of the village I lived in.

I have just had an email from my internet host saying I need to renew the morland.co.uk domain name. I won't be doing that as I now live in Devon and the Morland based work is not really relevant to me now.

 

Out of curiosity I googled 'morland tree services' I couldn't remember if I still had the domain name pointing at a website. 

 

This is where it gets interesting. morlandtreeservices.com came up and linked to apparently a tree firm based in Penrith.

 

Giving everyone the benefit of the doubt. My first thought was 'has somebody in the village started up a tree business? wonder who that might be? 

Its a small place and everyone knows each other so it would be likely I'd know them and wish them the best of luck, even point leads their way.

 

Having looked at the morland.com website and its content I'm pretty sure something else is going on. The questions is what?

The about us page suggests they are not a local firm. Saying they are based in Penrith. Unless they are actually based in the Morland/Penrith area there is some misleading marketing going on here at best. I probably know all the tree surgeons in Penrith area and those I don't know the ones i do will. Its a small world.

 

At the moment if any of my old customers google my old business name they will pointed at this .com website.

Building on what I left behind.  If I was still trading in the area I would be very concerned. 

 

Perhaps a few of you might like to have a look at a few variations  on your business names  on the internet and see what comes up?

e.g. morlandtreeservices.com    morlandtreeservices.co.uk   morlandtreeservices.net etc.

 

'Tree Services UK'  features in the website.

Who are they? (who are you?)

 

I'm interested in finding it if this situation is affecting others perhaps more seriously than its affecting me at the moment.

 

Thoughts please?
