Let's face it, when either of us puts our advertising money down, we
want to know that it is going to actually get us in front of our target
So, let's cut right to the bottom line and get to
the important stats about these directories:
Over 250,000 unique visitors in 2008; looking for business's in Central
Over 15% of our traffic is 'repeats & referrals' - these are sites people
bookmark and share with their friends;
The average visitor saw 3.93 pages per visit - and remember, that's
factoring in the people who only wanted a phone number and hit one page;
We're well-placed in search engines for thousands of desirable phrases
and terms (see the right panel for more details);
We have partnerships and promotion in other media to drive even more
We are constantly fine-tuning and adding to the sites to keep it relevant
What does this mean for you? - An
interested, active, educated audience - or in other words more business.
We specialize in Central Alberta business directories, and marketing and
promotion of those business's on those directories.
You know that internet search for business listings is on the
increase. 70% of Canadians are researching their purchase and business
alternatives online and you want to be found when they are looking - that's
the old "Yellow Pages" principle, though fewer and fewer people are reaching
for a phone book, they are visiting business directories just like you are
You also know that it isn't enough to just build a website and hope people
Our experience has shown that sites that receive
little traffic because they cannot be positioned by the search engines do
not achieve the results intended, in today’s extremely competitive online
arena building a site that can be found by someone searching is very
important as the number of websites increases dramatically.
The Reality: Marketing online can be hard work.
What's the point of a beautiful website that
draws few or no visitors? True search engine specialists in Keyword
Technology are expensive, and learning the process is time-consuming. When
you are running your own business, you don't have the time to devote to
learning the ins and outs of the process.
Are you missing out on your share of the thousands of people searching for
your product or service every day?
Ask yourself these questions:
If someone doesn't already know my business name, can they find me
Can they find me by searching for the products or services I offer?
Can they find me by my town name or a local area postal code search?
Can someone give my website daily or even weekly attention and effort?
Is there someone I can rely on to handle this end of my business?
Will they know the intricacies of this market?
Can it be done without costing me a fortune?
Uppgroup Inc. can help you answer "yes" to all of
these questions. We have options for all budgets!

Let's compare using our Sylvan Lake Directory website along side trying to
maintain your own website in a top ranked position, read on...
Customers need your contact information and in order for them to buy from
you a number of factors are involved: first and foremost, the particular
search engine that the customer is looking at needs to have you in the
database. Let’s narrow this down to one engine for illustration. We will use
MSN; it’s the default search engine installed in the Windows system of 98%
of all US computers.
A prospective client is looking for sylvan lake directory, or sylvan lake
planning guide, or sylvan lake business directory. They visit the MSN or
Yahoo search page and type that particular phrase in. The MSN or Yahoo
database now looks through its millions of listings and places what it
considers the most relevant sites up on the first page, and less relevant on
the second page and third and so on, in many cases returning thousands, if
not millions, of pages of results.
The same would hold true for any of our directories,
you could try Lacombe business directory, Stettler, Camrose, Wetaskiwin,
Olds, Rocky and many more, or hundreds of other business listings and
