SEO Expertise Means Maximum Revenue for Hotels and Resorts

Renowned Link Building Authority, Eric Ward, Gives Personal Instruction to VIZERGY® Team



Jacksonville, FL (March 29, 2011) – Striving to be the most knowledgeable search engine optimization (SEO) experts in the hotel industry is a primary focus for VIZERGY.  Through advanced education, experience and numerous awards for unique designs and marketing, the company has solidified itself as a hotel Internet marketing leader.

VIZERGY’s search marketing team recently continued their advanced education with a series of private trainings from respected link building guru Eric Ward.  This education allows VIZERGY to use advanced techniques to help client properties receive optimum search marketing.
Ward is the Chief Link Evangelist at www.AdGooroo.com, the President of www.ericward.com and the publisher of www.urlwire.com.  He has experience dating back to the advent of online marketing and was profiled in the acclaimed book Online Marketing Heroes.  Ward has worked with prestigious clients such as PBS, National Geographic, The New York Times and Weather.com.

VIZERGY’s private training sessions discussed link building’s evolution in the travel industry, the most effective ways to build valuable links that go beyond the industry norm and create high quality, long lasting link profiles and the future of link building’s role in SEO.  Much of the training was hands on, with actual advanced link building being performed by the VIZERGY team.  The customized “boot camp” was broken down into 10 sessions over the course of approximately two months.
 
“Link building strategies are a key component of online marketing, whether it’s for search engine optimization or publicity,” says Ward.  “That rings true more than ever in the ultra competitive hotel industry, where proper, ethical link building tactics and tracking are vital to properties’ success.”

“Eric Ward is the authority on link building, so our team obviously gained valuable insight and knowledge from this experience,” said Lisa Klueppel, VIZERGY’s Senior Manager of Online Acquisition Marketing.  “He catered his presentation to the hotel industry, which ensures our search marketing team’s knowledge in helping properties succeed is second to none.”
