“While businesses are hard hit by rising pay per click costs, and the search marketing industry relies on hit or miss consulting, SEO Samba has built a system that helps website marketers succeed instantly with search engines instead of following ad hoc trial and error SEO process,” said SEO Samba CEO and Founder Michel Leconte. “In most cases, systematical optimization processes via SEO Samba results in page-one positions in Google search results for targeted search terms.

“What I love best about SEO Samba is the ability to set search engine optimization rules, and perform automated cross-linking throughout sites. The system is well designed, and handles lots of the headaches, such as 301’s redirect pages, that come with managing multiple websites,” says Scott Gordon, marketing guru at ActivSupport, Inc, a nationwide IT support company.

“Our busy staff of scientists did not have the time to learn a complex content management system when we decided to redesign and optimize our website,” said Olga Potapova, scientific director at Cureline. “Samba’s integrated CMS and SEO platform proved easy to use and deploy and logically organized which is critical when dealing with scientists. In addition the platform allows us to easily keep track of ongoing optimization of content,” added Potapova.

“Our customers have reacted very positively to our newly-deployed white label version of SEO Samba, allowing us to propose sophisticated multi-site SEO strategies at a cost-effective price point,” says Arnaud Tessier, CEO of the SEM and hosted application development firm Altervisions.
