- Check Google, Yahoo, Bing – Try a search which includes your town and state info and what type of service you are looking to have done. Look at Google Maps (which comes up on the first page for a local search with a map of the location of the businesses), the paid advertisers section of Google (also called Adwords/PPC which are the top three listings and the listings on your right hand side of the page) usually these listings have some RI local plumbers but also nationwide plumbing companies and unfortunately sometimes even unrelated services. Under the Google paid advertisers and Google Maps is the Natural Search Results– this is where you will find RI plumbers that are not advertising with Google but instead because of how relevant the words you chose to used and the information on the plumbers website Google decides that it is a good match. This section is where you will find local plumbing companies if you put in your town and state information with what service you are looking to have done.
- Check with the BBB – keep in mind that some businesses actually buy a better rating by paying the BBB for a membership. The best plumbing companies have no complaints and don’t even buy a BBB membership but still have an excellent rating.
- Check with the RI Dept of Labor – The Rhode Island’s Department of Labor and Training has a section where you can check the plumbing contractors license information to see if it is active, in good standing and where they are located.
- Check yourlocal Yellow Pages Directories (Yellowbook & Superpages) – Look through the ads within a local yellow pages book or on online. Usually the businesses that are advertising in these local directories service area where the directories gets distributed.
In conclusion, if your looking for RI local Plumbers online the more detailed information (town, state, service needed) you give in your search will deliver the best results!
