Why advertise your Sierra Madre business with a web page on the News Net site? Because we are the number one visited site dedicated to Sierra Madre.  We are averaging more than 85,000 visitor sessions per month on our site, (450,000 visitor sessions from March 1 to July 31, 2008) with spikes prior to and after each major Sierra Madre event, i.e., 4th of July, Mt. Wilson Trail Race, Pioneer Days, Wistaria, etc.   We regularly submit to dozens of search engines, so we are easy for your customers to find.  In fact, recent research shows that we appear in the top 10 sites/pages listed on 4 of the top search engines using 5 major search criteria.  This is critical as most surfers stop or revise their search if they don't find what they are looking for in the first 20-24 results.  How does Sierra Madre News Net rank with search engines?  And the cost of a web page on the News Net is substantially lower than the cost of print advertising.  Your web page can be an electronic brochure working for you 24/7, at substantially lower cost than print brochures.  And since people can access your brochure on the internet, you can substantially reduce the money you spend on printed brochures, not to mention time and postage savings.
