* Lake Erie Charter Search - our newest tool to help
Lake Erie charter boat services, with many new easy search features.

You get 2 website listings for the price of 1 when you sign up here!!!

Our system was created out of a need we found in YOUR fishing industry. The need ... thousands of charter boats on Lake Erie and only a handful of these business get the TOP SEARCH ENGINE SPOTS.

Our solutions is quite simple. With the advent of Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising space on ALL the major search engines, we now can co-op our member charter captains advertising budgets to provide this website TOP SEARCH ENGINE PLACEMENT for over 200 keyword phrases. By doing this we drive traffic to the website and these visitors are just a click away from finding the port they want to fish from and a link to YOUR CHARTER'S WEBSITE or DETAILED CONTACT INFORMATION (for those without websites).

In order for a charter boat business to provide top PPC advertising placement to cover ALL the major search engines it would cost over $10,000 per year and this amount is growing each year.

We know this because for the past 5 years we have been managing several PPC co-op campaigns on a smaller scale for 16 charter captains.

HOW IT WORKS
You pay a yearly membership fee which we pool with all the other membership fees. The membership fees contribute to the PPC advertising budget to keep this website on the very first page of results for over 200 keyword phrases on Google, Yahoo and MSN search engines. We have chosen these search engines because 90+% of all searches on the Internet begin with these 3 search engines.

When you become a member you  provide specific details about your business such as dock location (home port), a small description, website address, contact information, etc. This information is then entered into our database which places your details on the appropriate port page within our website.
