Canadian Web hosting service, BlackSun, is teaming up with Attracta to provide free SEO services to all of its retail and reseller customers. The move comes at a time when web hosting companies all over Canada are ramping up services in order to compete for a growing customer base. The deal has Attracta providing SEO services that will boost page ranking on Google, Yahoo!, Ask, and Bing by automatically generating and submitting XML site maps.
Attracta uses XML site mapping because it is the preferred method by which Google page ranks are achieved. Google prefers them because they are a very effective and efficient way to index site content. SEO services that can effectively use XML site maps stand a far better chance of achieving positive search engine results than those that don’t.
SEO, also known as search engine optimization, is a practice that has been employed in Internet marketing for more than a decade. In its early years, it was mainly the art of inserting keywords and phrases into Web content in order to increase its page ranking. Meta-tags were also used heavily at that time.
Since then, SEO has evolved to include article marketing, social media marketing, pay-per-click advertising, and much more. And with thousands of new pages being added to the Internet every day, having a good SEO provider is paramount to making sure a website stays consistently near the top of the search list.
Black Sun is banking on Attracta’s track record of helping more than 1 million site owners improve their page rankings. The company prides itself on creating the perfect website to meet the need of any company, offering direct Web hosting as well as hosting reseller accounts with state-of-the-art equipment, industry-leading support, and an uptime guarantee.
