Search Engine Optimisation will be performed on your homepage when your web site is first designed. There will then be a Google ranking review each month for the first 3 months to ensure your site is ranking well on the search engines. We will then do a quarterly review of the Google rankings and an SEO analysis/update to make sure your site is still optimised for Google and ranking well (in case Google changes their ranking methods/algorithms). The SEO will be concentrated on 1 main search term, but will include up to 4 other minor search terms aswell as targeted locations.

This will show how many visitors came to your site, where they came from (usually Google!), and how many enquiries you received. You will also be able to view your statistics online at any time to view graphs, reports, and drill down into a huge amount of detail about how your web site is performing, how the visitors are finding your site, what they searched for, and much more.

 

Features included in your Online Directory

Yes
Automatic link validation - The directory will automatically check all your links to make sure they are valid, so your directory won’t be linking to any sites that are no longer available.
Yes
Automatic reciprocal link validation - The directory will automatically visit the web sites of your reciprocal link partners (if using this feature) to see if their sites are still linking to your directory. It can automatically disable their link in your directory if they no longer link back to your directory from their site. This saves you personally viewing all of the web sites yourself and disabling links in your directory yourself.
Yes

Built-in email system with custom email templates

If you are looking for a way to make it easy to have a system for seeking and managing reciprocal links, this is a strong point of this program. Furthermore, the system makes it very easy to hire freelancers to help you do the work yet maintain a level of quality, and also be able to see exactly how much work was done.

  • Enter site name, url and email of webmaster and click submit and an introduction/invitation email is sent using the email template you created.
  • Multiple Email Templates can be used if desired, so it is easy to send a variety of messages efficiently.
  • When submitting, a variety of methods are used to check and then warn you in the event you are trying to email the same person or website. This becomes especially important on large campaigns over periods of time.
