With the recent public release of the Site Assurance Seal program online shoppers can now rest assured that sites bearing this seal have been inspected for Authenticity, Privacy, Support Availability and Longevity and retain a complete report just a single click away.
Site Assurance raises the bar for independent third-party "seal" and "certification" programs by combining many of the best features with a unique method for determining critical other factors. They are also offering a 3-month free trial for Webmasters who take advantage of this service by December 31, 2004 and they even waive the setup fee.
In today's online marketplace consumers need the tools to help identify the various types of criminal element proliferating the Internet. An example of this criminal activity is the 'fly-by-night' Webmaster. An unethical Webmaster can launch a Web Site on a Monday market the site on major search engines using 'pay-per-click' advertising for a week earning tens of thousands of dollars and then disappear completely leaving the consumer with limited or no recourse. Equally as bad are those criminals who "spoof" a web site, creating a copy that draws some or all of a Web Sites' visitors and then illegally collecting personally identifiable information including credit card data, social security numbers, etc.
Site Assurance does have competition for third-party seal programs; however, they have taken the best features of each, added valuable features not available anywhere and kept the price point low enough to allow even the smallest merchant site to participate.
Currently Business Owners can add the Site Assurance Seal to their web sites free for 3 months, just in time for the holiday rush. Normally there is a $19.95 setup fee plus a $5.95 monthly maintenance fee. The service is available now at http://www.siteassurance.com.
Setup is easy. Simply copy some text onto your home page, save it, view your web page through a web browser, click on the new icon that appears and complete the short form. Site Assurance then runs a certification report for your web site and your done! The entire process should take less than 5 minutes.
