Minimum cost for a
nominal site is $500. This would be a site consisting of 4-6 pages
with photos, music (if desired), and a feedback/guestbook forms
page. You can estimate the cost of a more complex site by using a guideline of
$100/page. This varies depending upon the complexity of the pages

We offer three Search Engine Marketing programs.
Our recommended Search Engine program insures that your website gets
placed and remains in the AskJeeves Index which powers many Search Engines
on the Web. For example, MSN iWon, NBCi, HotBot, and Overture. Your site
will not be dropped from the index for a year and will be re-indexed
weekly to keep your listing fresh. Besides the Inktomi partners listed
above, your URL will be submitted to the other major Engines and if you
are not already in the Open Directory submissions will be
made to this directory as well. Program cost is $185.00/year. We
recommend this program, in conjunction with our SEO program (see below) for maximum marketing effectiveness.
Our basic Search Engine Update program involves submitting one URL
to the top engines each month for a one year period. Usually this URL is
your index, default, or front page The annual fee is $125.00.
With the SEO program we generate a Search
Engine Position Report using up to 10 of your keywords and/or phrases and
then do an analysis of your index (home) page. This bench-mark analysis provides the
basis for making recommendations (keywords, phrases, title,
description and other changes) that will make your site more compatible
with current Search Engine algorithms. Based on this report you or your
webmaster may then
make strategic modifications to the site and its design to comply with
current Search Engine preferences. Because of the changing nature of the
Internet and the Search Engine Algorithms, we recommend that this analysis
be conducted at least on an annual basis. The cost for this program is
$300 for each Report and Analysis. Position Reports without the analysis
are $50 each.
All other marketing such as opt in email campaigns are billed at our usual
$40/hour. Call us for details.
Activity Report Generation
These extensive activity reports are available on an individual basis for
$25/report or by signing up for a one year contract. Contract
cost is $240/year. Your report is placed on your web server for you
to view at your leisure. To view an example of such a report, please point
your browser to
. You must have
access to your server log files for us to generate these reports.
In addition to the above items, the prospective internet site owner should
realize that the site must be hosted by someone and that a domain name
must be obtained. Lade's Internet Service recommends CyberStreet
for the hosting service. The client may obtain his own domain name
or we will assist in obtaining it. Please call us for details.
