The new Grand Canyon Gateway Web site is modeled after http://www.GatewayToSedona.com, a regional online Âe-zineÂ and directory that helps businesses get found on the Internet by providing highly-ranked, search-engine optimized pages and banners leading directly to advertisersÂ Web sites or contact information. The ÂGatewayÂ is now expanding its services with its planned publication of a high quality, perfect-bound visitor guide targeted for distributed throughout Arizona and the US.
Gateway to the Planet opened its first Web portal, http://www.GatewayToSedona.com, in July of 2002. The official ribbon cutting and E-zine launch came later, on October 1, 2004. Since that time, the online publication has rapidly increased in popularity among Sedona lodging companies (bed and breakfasts, resorts, hotels), restaurants, realtors, art galleries, tour companies, and specialty boutiques. Advertisers who had very little traffic to their personal Websites received a significant increase in visitors and conversions following inclusion on http://www.GatewayToSedona.com.
Gateway to the Planet was created by Chuck and Victoria Oldham who started with the launch of http://www.GatewayToSedona.com. Victoria, a Web designer and marketer known for incorporating branding and search engine functionality, created an entertaining and user-friendly virtual environment for visitors to learn about Sedona. The ÂGatewayÂ pages are designed from the ground up to be easily indexed by search engines, creating higher placement; http://www.GatewayToSedona.com ranks in the top ten listings of major search engines for over 100 popular keyword phrases related to Sedona, Arizona.
With the success of http://www.GatewayToSedona.com, and the newly launched http://www.GrandCanyonGateway.com, Gateway To The Planet is expanding to include additional ÂGateways.Â Gateway to Scottsdale and Gateway to the Golden Isles are due for release late April, 2005.
