HUGE Changes Ahead
All of the major search engines, with the exception of Google, have now either already activated or have indicated that they will soon be activating various "pay for your listing" schemes. As they say, "THIS changes everything!" and I am now in the midst of forming new promotion strategies for somedomainA, somedomainB, and somedomainC.
Make no mistake, this marks a sea-change in the internet as we've come to know it. With these search engine charges and fees, effective web marketing for even a modest-sized site could now easily approach $3,000 annually to fund and manage the various accounts involved in promoting a site. To give you an idea of the scope of this, submitting the somedomainA pages to just ONE search engine database now costs approximately $54,000 per YEAR. Other programs are referring traffic and charging "by the click" with the industry average already being bid up to 21 cents per visitor referred.
