Fort Worth, Tex (PRWEB) April 3, 2008
Range Online Media, a pioneer in paid search and search engine optimization since 2001 and leading interactive agency, is continuing the expansion of its SEO department with the hiring of Will Pendergast as Director of Search Engine Optimization. Pendergast joined Range after an extensive career at CompUSA, where his work spanned nearly two decades and where he most recently served as the Senior Director of eCommerce for the electronics giant.

"Will's thorough understanding of client-side challenges, success criteria and unique pressures makes him uniquely qualified to offer our clients the highest level of support and insight possible," said Misty Locke, president and co-founder of Range Online Media "He also brings specific working knowledge to the role stemming from his thorough understanding of Web site architecture, comprehensive content management knowledge, and many other elements beyond the realm of traditional SEO. We have had the pleasure of observing Will's technical expertise, management prowess and analytics ability in an agency-client setting, and now we are thrilled to have him leading our stellar SEO team."
Beyond his management of SEO programs at CompUSA, Will also orchestrated the Compusa.com backend support systems and site interfaces, integrated Coremetrics analytics package and analyzed trends on a daily basis, and led the business unit to be named number 39 of the top 500 eCommerce Web sites in 2006 by Internet Retailer.
"As search engine marketing continues to grow and shift, I am proud to be able to lead Range's team of experts to anticipate trends, set industry agenda and further client success," said Pendergast.
