Pittsburgh, PA, United States, 2012/05/01 - Pittsburgh internet marketing company ProFromGo announced that it is officially engaging in online communities Squidoo and HubPages - ProFromGo.com / ContentForConversions.com.
ProFromGo – a Pittsburgh internet marketing and SEO firm – announced that it has joined the web communities of Squidoo and HubPages this week. The announcement by the firm's founder was timed to coincide with a number of other recent projects and public messages.
SEO expert and Chief of Operations for the company Chris Vendilli stated that Squidoo and HubPages were to be a more central part of search engine optimization and readership campaigns for its clients.
"There's a lot to love about them [Squidoo and HubPages], not the least of which is powerful SEO effects. Because these are such highly respected websites, they can pass ranking to your referenced site when done correctly and legitimately."
But Vendilli said that their efforts in these communities are about far more than just search engine optimization. ProFromGo's primary editor, Russ Hudson, explains;
"These properties [Squidoo and HubPages] are phenomenal places to share and interact. Clients that engage with their consumers in meaningful ways like this are often extremely successful in building powerful brands and authority. But at the end of the day, it's all about learning and having fun, and we intend to do a little bit of both ourselves."
Hudson refers to the interactive modules on Squidoo and HubPages that allow readers to vote in customized polls, make public predictions, upload videos and pictures, recommend certain pages for home page features, comment on topics and discussions, and other features designed to encourage human engagement.
Although both are very different in style and overall theme, Squidoo and HubPages are similar. Users are essentially permitted space on the websites to build their own dedicated web page that features a tightly focused subject or topic. Both HubPages and Squidoo provide specialized tools for even inexperienced users to make professional, highly interactive pages, and both share a percentage of revenue with its users – a feature that Vendilli downplayed during a recent interview;
"Yes, our Squidoo and HubPages program actually earns money for our clients. And while that's a unique feature, that's not what we're focusing on here. We're focusing on yet another way to reach out to the people and businesses in our industries and interact with them in meaningful ways. And by that token, we're doing more than just earning money. We're earning trust, and that's the primary currency I'm interested in."
