The Most Complete Set of Promotional Tools in a Website Builder

CityMax has gone to great lengths to provide their customers with a complete set of tools to help them make money with their websites. From free credits to integrated tools, not to mention their extensive library of articles, they've really demonstrated an understanding that it's not just about having a website, it's having a website that makes you money.

Plenty of Free Credits to Start a Promotional Campaign

Through their partnerships, CityMax provides a number of useful credits to help you get your promotional campaign started. You get a $50 credit for Google AdWords, which allows you to put up pay-per-click ads in Google’s sponsored results. You also get a $60 credit with Yahoo’s equivalent program. These programs automatically show your ad when people search for the keywords you specify.  You pay a designated amount whenever someone clicks on your ad. 

In addition to pay-per-click advertising credits, you also get free credits to list your products on shopping listing sites, including Shopzilla, Froogle and Shopping.com. They also offer you a month free with ExactSeek to get your website on the top ten listings on 200+ search engines.  And these are only a few of the freebies you get with CityMax.

Increase Your Rankings on Search Engines with a Google Sitemap

CityMax created a tool that allows you to easily add a Google Sitemap to your site. This sitemap maps out your site so that Google understands its navigation and doesn't miss any pages. This is important to ensure that your whole site is accounted for in Google's search.

Usually, adding a sitemap is a complicated process that involves dealing with code and using different kinds of software. But with this system, you can add a sitemap in just a few clicks from the "Power Tools" tab in "Manage Pages."  All you have to do is have the site verified then check the boxes for the pages you want to include in your sitemap.

From within "Power Tools" you can also easily add Google Adsense code so you can display ads on your website and earn extra money.  Or you can add tracking code for website statistics software.

Learn to Make Money with a Wide Variety of Marketing Articles

The “Make Money” section on the toolbar has lots of useful marketing tips and articles.  There’s information on all the different types of Web marketing strategies (ie. link popularity, paid inclusion etc.). They even give you copywriting guides specific to different industries. If you want to make money with your website, CityMax shows you how to do it.


Great Strategies for Making Money

 

Easy Meta Tag Editing

CityMax, like most other builders, gives you an area to enter meta tags.  This is where you enter keywords, descriptions and titles to help search engines understand the content of your site. You can set up the same meta tags for all your pages or different ones on individual pages, a feature that not all builders have.

Add Friendly URLs to Help Search Engines Understand Your Site

In addition to adding info to your Meta tags, you can also give your site friendly URLs for each of its pages. This allows you to customize your web address extension. (ie. from www.ADDRESS.com/page/page/12345.htm to www.ADDRESS.com/store.html). This makes your web pages look more professional, while at the same time being more search engine friendly. It helps them better understand your site's pages' contents. In other website builders there’s sometimes a workaround to do this, but CityMax makes it easy by providing a simple form in which you can enter the info.
