18.05.2006: Search engine marketing specialists Site Visibility have formed a partnership with Madgex, the UK market leader in job board software and B2B web publishing systems. The partnership enables Madgex to offer a complete end-to-end solution to clients looking to grow revenues through their online job board.

One of the key elements of making a job board successful is being visible on the Internet through search engines such as Google. Not only does visibility bring in more visits, it also means the job board can attract higher quality candidates and recruiters.

Simon Conroy, CEO of Madgex comments: “After speaking to several SEM companies, we felt Site Visibility offered the best fit for our clients, which include LexisNexis Butterworths, Centaur Publications and Incisive Media. We chose Site Visibility because they demonstrated a deep understanding of how to integrate search related activity into our client's business models .”

The partnership has already helped both companies secure new clients. Damon Lightley, MD of Sussex-based Site Visibility adds: “The online recruitment market is really hotting-up; more and more publishers are looking to their job boards to help fill the gap in lost revenues from classified ads. To do this though, it’s important to get prime visibility on major search engines. This is arguably one of the best ways to build up a quality audience base.”

Site Visibilty:
Site Visibility helps clients harness the power of Internet search engines like Google so that they can acquire and retain customers on an ongoing and profitable basis.

The business was set-up in 2003 by Damon Lightley to provide clients with a more integrated approach to search marketing. Site Visibility believes that a search engine marketing campaign cannot be set-up in isolation - it needs to be integrated with other areas of the marketing mix. To do this effectively they have developed skills in the following areas:
Strategic marketing communications planning; pay per click advertising; search engine optimisation and visitor reporting.

Damon has also held online marketing roles at The Financial Times and The Energy Saving Trust. Site Visibility is a Google Adwords Qualified Professional and a member of the UK Search Marketing Association.
