Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and social media professionals are invited to put their skills to charitable use this holiday in a program sponsored by PeoplePond.
SEO Santa 2009 is a collaborative effort by the SEO & Social Media community to drive charitable giving through increased visibility of Santa’s PeoplePond profile.
While PeoplePond staff have selected an initial slate of charities to benefit from this effort. Other non-profit causes will be considered. Current beneficiaries include Toys for Tots, Angel Trees, Salvation Army - Red Kettles, Trees for Troops, Make-A-Wish Foundation and American Lung Association - Christmas Seals.
Any SEO and social media experts who can help give Santa Claus’ PeoplePond profile a boost before Christmas Day will be rewarded with a free PeoplePond profile of their own including a free one-year subscription to the PeoplePond SEO and identity verification services (a package worth $99).
“There are plenty of commercial search results for Santa. Our goal is to boost Santa Claus search traffic for non-profit causes,” said PeoplePond CEO and founder, David McInnis. “We are excited to provide the SEO and social media community with a means to come together to help worthwhile charities this way.”
PeoplePond also announced a new tool embedded into the PeoplePond online profile. Customers subscribing to either the SEO or Identity Verification packages can now embed their Google Analytics UA number into their PeoplePond profile.
