Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2009
Wholinkstome.com is unveiling its Beta version this week at SXSW Interactive. This first level launch provides free services to bloggers and businesses interested in learning about the strengths and weaknesses of their websites' linking structure. Unlike current link analysis services, WhoLinksToMe.com reports cover a significantly broader online footprint in near real time, using technology far superior and more secure than previously offered. The services are web-based which removes the risks often associated with such an enormous continuous search, including banned IPs and immense lag time.
Links are a key player in the evolution of the internet's influence over reputation and brand exposure. According to Marketing Sherpa's 2009 Social Media and Marketing PR Benchmark Guide, 42% of small to medium sized marketing businesses and 32% of large businesses currently use inbound links as a metric to evaluate effectiveness of their efforts. As this trend continues, WhoLinksToMe.com will serve as an effective web-based tool that provides needed information and insight to intelligently gauge the impact of marketing efforts.
As social media expands, most businesses recognize the significant impact of online conversations about their brand. One of the key challenges continues to be finding an effective means to capture and understand the related data. WhoLinksToMe.com helps businesses meet those needs and will soon unveil additional corporate services, which are slated to include enhanced reports and in-depth information on competitors' linking structures and strategies. WhoLinksToMe.com's corporate services will function as a one-stop resource for companies interested in maximizing their web marketability, while providing a blueprint for results-driven strategies.

"When departmental walls are broken down and best practices are put into place, amazing wins in the marketplace occur."
