SEOPressor WordPress Plugin Scores a Big Hit Now Supporting More Than 15 Million Pages

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2010

After following a rapidly increasing popularity since June 2010, SEOPressor has now reached the enviable position of one of the most top-ranking plugins for WordPress pages. September analyses on the popularity of this WordPress plugin show that more than 15 million pages of this popular blogging platform have SEOPressor on it. Daniel Tan, the developer of the product, is currently basking in the glory of the numerous awards SEOPressor has received, with talks about it being voted as a compulsory plugin for WordPress powered sites.

SEOPressor is available at: http://www.SEOPressor.com

What SEOPressor basically does is to help WordPress websites with search engine optimization. It helps basically in keyword optimization, i.e. in finding the right keywords that should be used on webpages in order to enhance their ranking on popular search engines such as Google. The plugin suggests various optimizations to webmasters, along with various automatic optimizations that has proven to produce results.

The one thing that has made SEOPressor so highly appreciated is its very user-friendly feature of the SEO Score. This is a score generated by the plugin for the website depending on how well it is optimized for the search engines. Using various parameters, the plugin can accord an SEO score for the webpage. Intriguingly, it has been found that the SEO Score given to any WordPress blog perfectly corresponds with the ranking of the website on services such as Google Analytics.

SEOPressor is available at: http://www.SEOPressor.com

The success of SEOPressor is unprecedented. Speaking with the reporters of this website, he says, I expected SEOPressor to do well because I had developed it in response to Internet marketers requests through my Warrior Forum, but I didnt expect it to be received so well. Perhaps it is the feeling that a website needs to be good for the search engines if it has to succeed that has made SEOPressor work so well. Also, I found that SEOPressor works exactly as per my expectations and that has given me the courage to work for something bigger in future.

SEOPressor is also being praised for its consumer-pleasing interface and for its search engine performance. There is a customer support of 24/7 for all global users of the plugin.

Amazon Consulting Unveils Exclusive New Channel Research: “From Rookie to Rockstar: Accelerating the Development of Channel Partnerships”


Mountain View, Calif. (Vocus) October 21, 2010

Ramping partners quickly and effectively from new recruits to productive sellers has been an age-old vendor challenge. Amazon Consulting, a leading partnering services firm dedicated to helping companies elevate the impact of partnering, just published exclusive channel research entitled, ”From Rookie to Rockstar: Accelerating the Development of Channel Partnerships.” An executive brief of the studys findings can be accessed at Amazon Consultings website.

”With the collaboration of Arrow ECS, we interviewed 47 leading vendors and nearly 200 solution providers to better understand what it takes to efficiently develop a successful channel partnership,” said Amazon Consulting CEO Diane Krakora. This executive brief addresses how long it should realistically take a vendor to elevate a partner from new in their channel program to being a productive seller; what are the key steps along the way, where does the process stall, and what kind of support are solution providers looking for from their leading vendors to accelerate the process?

According to the research, solution providers are willing to invest for up to 12 months in a new vendor line before realizing revenue. But, both vendors and their partners would like to be actively selling within 6 months. Issues such a rebounding economy, new technologies that cause shifts in new practice investments, and industry consolidation are impacting the time and cost of developing solid vendor/solution provider partnerships.

Amazon Consultings recent study identifies key areas that can boost the time to market and ROI for vendors and solution providers. For example, vendors indicate that it only takes their partners 30 days to enroll and get activated in their program, and another 2-4 months to begin actively selling and marketing, after training. Solution providers consistently indicate that throughout these development steps, they rely on vendors staff in sales, technical, services and marketing to accelerate their ramp. They do value some other on-line systems and automation, but the value of people in building new channel relationships remains key.

”We have analyzed this data in depth from both the vendor and solution provider perspectives to better understand the disconnect between the vendor and solution provider communities expectations,” said Beth Vanni, Amazon Consultings Director of Market Intelligence. ”The findings of this particular study validate the common vendor challenge of having 20% of partners producing 80% of their revenue. But, it forces vendors to look more closely at aligning their support along the partner development continuum to what their partners need most. For instance, we found many vendor support programs are unused or under-valued. We also found that the vendors and solution providers had quite different expectations of their distributors for development support. Bottom line, vendors need to spend smarter, know what programs are most valued and used, and clearly identify distributors role in support.”
