    Dont put a phone number in your title...put it in your meta tag...you will have more space here to write a pitch then drop the number

    Agreed, put it in the meta description so it will looks like this in the SERP:

    Joe's plumbing service NYC
    www.joetheplumbernyc.com
    Emergency home plumbing repair. 24/7 in NYC, call now 1-800-JOEPLUMBER

    Ok I had a bit of fun with this, but the idea looks good doesn't it ? :)

    that is nothing to do with google.it will seriously hurt your on-page seo_On-page seo should be done well,then you get good benefits from off-page seo.
