Google is a search engine and it’s where people go to to find things products and services google has competitors like Microsoft AOL back-in-the-day Yahoo but Google is the most widely used and pretty much everybody else just tries to simulate what they do they have the most data they have the most traffic and they bring the most value to any cleaning business so that’s why Google is the most the single most important search engine to show up on now when people are searching for a cleaning service today!
