Who is ACTIVEWEB?
ActiveWeb is formerly the Internet Technologies division of AllCity Technology. AllCity Technology has been developing SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) technologies for a decade.
Until 2009, the ActiveWeb team worked under an exclusive contract for a prestigious marketing firm performing SEO and SEM for Fortune 500 companies. ActiveWeb is still engaged and performing services for that marketing firm, but has recently negotiated a limitation to the exclusivity. This allows ActiveWeb to offer advanced Internet marketing techniques to businesses in non-competing industries or areas. Maintaining our high non-compete standards, once you are a client, ActiveWeb will not perform services for your competitor(s).
ActiveWeb developed Active Search Marketing (ASM) as a solution to fill the waning capabilities of traditional Search Engine Optimization (SEO). After a decade of research and development, ASM has evolved into a solution that is 10x(ten times) more powerful than traditional 20th century SEO. ASM is a 21st century solution that catalyzes page one Google results ten times better than SEO.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) includes a variety of techniques that are intended to make your web site "search engine friendly" and tune your site to the Internet. Search engines used to have trouble analyzing the content of a site unless it was outlined in a particular way, and SEO was a way to fix that. SEO no longer works as well as it did in the 1990’s. Today’s search engines are very good at determining site content, and with the exponential growth of the Internet and the competition associated with that, SEO now has much less effect over your search engine.
Search Engine Marketing (SEM) seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in search engine results through the use of paid placement such as Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising.
Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising is advertising purchased from the search engines themselves. These ads appear on search engine results pages when you search for certain key phrases. When a web surfer expresses interest in your service by clicking on your PPC ad, you are charged a fee. This model may sound perfect, but it has been plagued with its own problems, such as rampant “click fraud,” wherein someone repeatedly clicks on your ad for the sole reason of running up your advertising costs and depleting your advertising budget. In addition, PPC ads are placed in boxes labeled as “advertising” above and to the right of the organic search results, but 4 out of 5 Internet users surveyed say that they intentionally ignore them and never click on them.
Probably not. ActiveWeb Search Marketing technology focuses on tuning the Internet to your site, not tuning your site to the Internet. Old SEO techniques often promote complete site rewrites and are not compatible with some content management systems. With ActiveWeb marketing, quite often your current site is fine. As long as it is intelligently designed to convert visitors into customers, you should be able to continue using it with only minor modifications at most.
