Nearly 90% of online adults have used the Internet for Health Care Information.

Found at http://www.ECRBayArea.com the local elder care website was recently launched as part of a growing national network of consumer resource sites.

ElderCareResources® BayArea is a complete online information resource where local seniors and caregivers can find hundreds of informative articles, watch videos, download helpful guides, check local events, even ask a nationally recognized Gerontologist about aging and caregiving issues all on one easy to navigate "local" website.

"We're getting 50,000 hits in only our second month. In addition, our visitors are looking at and average 6 page views and staying on the site for just under 9 minutes, says Frank M. Samson, CSA and founder of ECR Bay Area. Samson continues, "My background is in senior care, so I leave the technical aspect up to the experts. However, they told me these results even blew them away!"

In the Biz Report, News and Insight for Online Marketers, the average amount of time spent per website online in 2012 was 2 minutes and 49 seconds. Also, Wendy Piersall from Mom Blogging For Dummies says if you have a high pages-per-visitor count (over 3-4), or average length of visit is over 2-3 minutes, it means that readers feel your content is valuable and want to stick around.

The ElderCareResources® Bay Area site is seeing much higher averages than more established national sites because the ECRBayArea portal is "localized" including Bay Area events for caregivers, blogs written by Bay Area experts and member providers available to directly connect and meet face to face with family caregivers, seniors and local health industry professionals. Member providers offer much of the information on the site.

"I like that we have full control of the information we provide. It's not like an ad in a publication that remains stagnant for a long period of time. If we have an announcement to make or conducting a local seminar, we can update that information easily," says Robert Nations, owner of Senior Helpers, a care management company based in Napa, CA. The ECRBayArea.com team includes an experienced technical staff that provides ongoing search engine optimization to help maximize the number of visitors who can find this important information.

In order to inform more seniors and caregivers about their free online resources ECRBayArea.com is now a proud sponsor of the "Walk to End Alzheimer's" put on by the Alzheimer's Association in Petaluma, Walnut Creek, San Jose, San Francisco Yountville and Suisun City.
