My eCommerce project is more than just eCommerce. There are 5 other service areas or departments making up the business something like:
--> Service A
--> Service B
--> Service C
All are minimally loosely related. The plan I had in mind was to do it all as part of a single website using either Menu buttons or Images on the home page to take you to each area.
Boss comes to me today after looking at competitor's sites; google local has a link to the home page of a competitor who only does a single service, Service A. As such, everything from the home page forth talks to Service A. So he is wondering why the google local link for our site takes us to our home page which is broader in scope and can we make it go to our Service A. My answer - you can only configure google local to link to a single URL - so we can't have google local take us to the various services.....
Next he asks what if we set up a different website for each service. I'm thinking, since it's the same business, same phone, that really won't solve this problem for google local, better to continue along the path of developing the specific service areas on the live website which has been around for years.
Any arguments against following this plan?
