ExactSeek Search Engine Endorses Metamend SEO 'Seal of Approval'
Metamend SEO Approval Tag Gains a Home on the Web

June 26, 2003- VICTORIA, BC - Metamend today announced it has reached an agreement to produce a new Meta Tag for exclusive use within ExactSeek, an Internet Search Engine. ExactSeek is part of the Jayde Online, Inc. network. The new meta tag will be accepted by ExactSeek's search Spider on individual web sites meeting Metamend's search engine optimization standards.

Metamend specializes in the development and implementation of search engine optimization (SEO) technology and services. The company is regarded by many to be the world leader within the SEO field.

ExactSeek is an internet search engine and directory that receives and indexes over 25,000 new site submissions daily. To date more than 1.2 million distinct web sites have been indexed and added to the ExactSeek database. That number is expected to exceed five million by the third quarter 2003. In addition to standard web search results, ExactSeek also offers targeted searches of specialized databases. It also supplies search content data to a number of other search engines.

According to Jayde Online President, Mel Strocen, the adoption of the new proprietary Metamend/ExactSeek Meta Tag will be a boon to his search engine spider's existing ability to read, index and properly classify web sites. "We are very impressed with Metamend's Search Engine Optimization technology," stated Strocen. "We have decided to embrace it as our search engine optimization standard."

"What we are looking at here," continued Strocen, "is a quality control procedure which ensures the tagged web sites are fully optimized and completely readable by our robots, before they are submitted to ExactSeek. It's like having a web site submitted to us containing an SEO seal of approval."

"The procedure will save us a lot of time and bandwidth spidering sites which, for any number of reasons, are currently unreadable. Now, when we see a submission come in containing the imbedded Metamend-ExactSeek SEO approved tag, we'll know it will be easy to spider and perhaps more importantly, easier to relevantly index."

When questioned, Strocen acknowledged the new Metamend-ExactSeek tagged sites may have a competitive advantage over an non-approved submission. "It's quite possible that tagged sites may gain a boost in our rankings," admitted Strocen.

"A fully optimized web site, meeting or exceeding the highest SEO standards, should do well in any search engine," explained Strocen. "Since this is our own SEO quality control tag, it's entirely logical to assume that web sites containing it, should do well across our entire network."

Before the SEO approved tag is awarded to a web site, it will be proactively prescreened and optimized by Metamend's SEO procedures. Once the site has passed the SEO approval phase, the site is coded with the new SEO tag and forwarded to ExactSeek for expedited indexing.

Metamend CEO, Richard Zwicky was pleased with his Firm's latest Industry Coup. "The alliance with ExactSeek means we have once again broken new ground in the field of search engine optimization," beamed Zwicky. "One of the primary goals of Metamend, from the inception of our business plan, was to have our SEO technology endorsed by the search engines themselves. Our alliance with ExactSeek proves we have now begun to accomplish this goal."

"We are currently negotiating strategic alliances and partnerships with other search engines as well." continued Zwicky. "Our SEO technology enhances a search engine's ability to index documents relevantly. It's in every engines best interest to produce the most relevant search results for its users. Utilizing our SEO technology makes the indexing process much more accurate. Metamend should be regarded as an ally to the search engines," stated Zwicky. "We want to accomplish the same goal. To make the Internet much more useable and relevant."
