Question: In terms of using pitchengine.com, does the panda update affect this? Is pitchengine a “warehouse”?
Question: Are viewers clicking on Google places listings and if so, to what extent, versus organic versus paid?

For a search like ‘Chicago Roofer,’ I recommend that a company really focus on Google Places, which is a function of SEO and social media marketing. We actually just broke out a special one hour class on Google Places because it is so absolutely critical!
