    Engine Seeker, Your Thoughts?

    Hey All,

    I am trying to get targeted traffic to my site and I dont seem to be getting anywhere. I have submitted to directories, submitted to prleap. Even tried some paid advertising.

    Has anyone had experience with engineseeker.com? Are they a good way to go? I am out of ideas to try and get traffic to my site. Any ideas and input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You and Happy Holidays
    Thanks In Advance

    I don't have experience with engine seeker, but I do have experiences with PR (Press Release) services and I would move up to a one with a wider distribution for starters. However, generally the launch of a new web hosting business is not regarded as news by the journalistic community. In fact, for print media, the launch of a new business usually won't get free mention even on the back pages.

    As competitive as your business is, I think your best online promotional methods are adwords and other PPC programs, followed by postings in classified forum sections and becoming an active member of forums like this one - using your expertise to encourage clicks on your signature link.

    Even so, I wouldn't limit your promotion to online only. Start with local promotion. Think of who really needs affordable web hosting services that might be your best target market (web designers?). I would send out a short introductory flyer or even postcard to web design firms in your area. Start with 25 or 50 per week and fan outward from your location. Join your local C of C and any other business networking groups in your area. Your C of C will usually send out new member profiles in their member newsletter.

    Advertise in business services classifieds and do a few small display ads in local print media. If you have the capital, check into some radio ROS adverts.
