The "Number One" -- Most Fundamental and Essential Question --

We pose here the ultimate question for all Webmasters:

"How to attract visitors to your web site and keep their attention longer than a mere 60 seconds?"

Because that is all the time you will have to get your message across. That essential problem is fundamental, whether usage is at home or in an office environment. Internet users are impatient, and focused upon immediate gratification. How well you solve this nagging problem will have significant impact on your corporate bottom line.

Proof for the 60 second time limitation is provided below.

For Answers to the first part of the question: "How to attract visitors to your web site ?"

News provides information on registering your web site with search engines and making use of Safe Lists (i.e. spam-free bulk Email) to encourage more visitors:

About the Search Engines:

You may register your web page for free with more than 1,500 search engines on the web site shown below. Scroll down for the magic words "Submit Free Webpages." There are links for quick and easy submission to all the major search engines with one click. You may also submit your site by country, by state, and by worldwide listings:

Search Engines Worldwide

About the all important "META TAGS:"

All search engines require Meta Tags. Meta Tags are special HTML source code that search engines like Google require to list your web page. Designing Meta Tags is Marketing Function rather than a web site design function. Most web sight designers do not understand how to create Magic Words that will attract visitors to a web site. They know how to make wonderful gateway pages that dazzle they eye, but they do not know how to attract "hits" via the Search Engines.

Converting "hits" into true visitors is a more daunting challenge.

The Meta Tags for were designed to attract visitors from a world wide audience. We must be good at Meta Tag research and marketing, because we have visitors surfing in from 58 countries. Our April statistics show our Meta Tags must be working, because this site was not listed with the major search engines until March 12, 2003.

About "Push-Marketing" and "Safe Lists:"

Using Safe Lists is an established Guerilla Marketing tactic. Safe List Email is not considered spam because people volunteer to receive solicitations from other Safe List members. Some providers of this service claim to send out two million or more Emails each day under strict operative guidelines. Some providers may actually send out as many as '30 million' or more solicitation letters each month.

Using these services may be an inexpensive way to build an Internet business. Many of these companies provide * FREE access so you may test how well their service works.

"The Informer" Has 'Ratings' by Users of 250 Safe Lists and Many are Free *
"All My Lists" Has a List of Fee Based Safe Lists Reaching 'Millions of Members' *
