At first, DrEats used scanned images of menus because it was the fastest way to get them up to the web
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 8, 2010
Restaurants using images of their menus find that search engines can’t read this content for search results. DrEats.com now gives the option of text entered menus to restaurant owners, which will help their customers find them online.
DrEats.com came on the scene as a casual eating menu service three years ago. “At first, DrEats used scanned images of menus because it was the fastest way to get them up to the web,” says Melissa Nichols, co-founder DrEats.com. “Customers and restaurants would fax the menus to us and we could just upload the images. But now that we have nearly 50,000 menus, it is time to make them accessible to search engines and no longer simply rely on customers coming to our site and searching for the restaurants from our main page.” By transitioning menus from images to text, customers performing Google or Yahoo searches will have access to all of the site’s content from the search engine. DrEats benefits by improved search engine placement, the restaurant benefits from increased exposure to potential customers, and the customer benefits from finding new restaurants in their area.
Three years ago, the main competition was regional menu services. But now with many sites attempting to offer menus nationwide, DrEats.com needs to attract customers right from the Google and Yahoo search bars. To get this high search placement, there needs to be a large volume of text content and links to information about each restaurant. So now at http://www.DrEats.com, owners can display their menus online in text format for free and create links that increase overall search-ability in the major search engines.
DrEats.com is an online menu service for takeout and delivery restaurants. Free for customers and restaurants alike, it helps customers quickly and easily find the food they’re craving.
