Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) December 14, 2004 -
Want to inexpensively reach a highly targeted Ohio business audience?
Ohio's leading business search engine/directory website, OhioBiz, http://www.ohiobiz.com, has begun selling targeted text ads to companies who want to reach the Ohio business community. The four-year old search directory provides visitors simple, quick, and efficient access to over 53,000 Ohio-based business, community, organization and education-related websites.
"OhioBiz allows businesses to reach a highly-targeted Ohio audience with relevant text ad content that correlates with the actual directory categories and keyword search results from the OhioBiz database. OhioBiz is a great vehicle to increase your business' online local visibility," said Mark J. Geyman, owner and founder of OhioBiz.
OhioBiz Text Ads offer advertisers a flat-rate schedule for an unlimited number of click-throughs and impressions based upon annual or semi-annual buys. For each text ad, advertisers can select up to three relevant categories and up to six relevant keywords/phrases. Text Ad title, description, and target keywords can be modified by the advertiser offering greater versatility than yellow page ads. More detailed information regarding the OhioBiz Text Ad program can be found at http://www.ohiobiz.com/ohiobizad.htm.
According to Geyman, current site traffic is over 1.2 million unique visitors and growing annually. "This is a great opportunity, particularly, for smaller businesses and organizations that seek greater visibility and targeted traffic throughout the region. We want to promote the Ohio business community!" said Geyman.
The OhioBiz search directory offers FREE and prompt website listings to any company or organization that has a physical presence in the state of Ohio.
Many Ohio business, government, library, education and media sites, including the Ohio Department of Development's site, link to OhioBiz.
Searches on the site can be performed by entity name, location, and category. Recent search enhancements to the site allow users to look up website traffic info of site listings (from Alexa), visitor review of site listings, archive listings of indexed sites (from archive.org), and further detailed site listing information (from Fagan Finder's Update). A partnership with CareerBoard.com has resulted in the OhioBiz Job Search Center, http://cleveland.careerboard.com/cgi-bin/a/searchjobs.cgi?cb=ohiobiz, a hub for Ohio jobseekers.
OhioBiz also contains an index of Ohio streaming media links at http://www.ohiobiz.com/Ohioradiofeeds.htm (including Ohio broadcast radio and television stations, Internet-only, police scanning, weather info, etc.). "The OhioBiz Streaming directory has been used by many local avid high school football and basketball fans on Friday and Saturday nights. It's a one-stop location to listen to 35 or more Ohio football games on a given Friday night," said Geyman.
Mr. Geyman, who has been a pioneer in developing web-based regional search directories, developed one of the country's and Ohio's first regional web directory, SitesOnline Ohio, back in 1995.
