World Buy Direct Selects Metamend Search Engine Optimization

June 07/04 - Victoria, BC, CANADA - Metamend Software and Design Ltd., announced today the signing of another licensing agreement to utilize the firm's search engine optimization (SEO) technology. The World Buy Direct Network will make the fourth partnership agreement announced by Metamend within a month. Others have included Victoria based, Transitional Media, UK based web services provider, K15 Solutions, and managed hosting services giant, InQuent Technologies.

Metamend specializes in the development and implementation of Industry leading search engine optimization technologies and solutions. The firm's web site optimization techniques have garnered great favor since product inception. The automated SEO portion of the service may be tuned to fit businesses and web sites of all size and description. Private labeling of the firm's SEO solution is becoming an increasingly popular industry option for ISP's, hosting firms, web designers and larger managed services providers who wish to outsource their SEO needs, but need to be assured of good results within search engine listings for their clients.

WorldBuyDirect.com Inc., an existing Metamend client for the past two years, has realized these results first hand and has now made the decision to utilize Metamend's SEO solution throughout its entire network structure. WorldBuyDirect owns in excess of one thousand industry specific BuyDirect.com categories, which are licensed to independent entrepreneurs.

Ron Trainor, WorldBuyDirect Chairman and CEO, explained why the agreement made good business sense for his firm. "The service and technology that Metamend provides will play an essential role in achieving our network growth plans for the coming years, stated Trainor. "WorldBuyDirect's plans are to substantially increase the number of our independently licensed .com networks, while providing those networks with a result driven, search engine optimization solution," continued Trainor.

"The other option was to saddle our licensees with the unpleasant, unwanted, time consuming and labor intensive task of performing this function manually, which of course didn't make much sense at all. It was a no-brainer for us, as Metamend fit the bill perfectly. In addition to the time reduction benefits, we are completely sold on the superiority and overall performance of the Metamend SEO solution and their back-up support," said Trainor.Trainor concluded, "WorldBuyDirect is very pleased to be partnering with Metamend and are happy to have Metamend become our exclusive search engine optimization provider."

Metamend CEO Richard Zwicky was similarly pleased with the new partnership. Especially since it came from an existing client. "It's great to constantly hear from our SEO clients how pleased they are with the results of our web site optimization solutions," said Zwicky. "But then to have one of them take it a step further and adopt it for their entire network... Well, that says loyalty and credibility. Obviously our SEO solutions work, otherwise we would have never been approached for such a partnership. I welcome WorldBuyDirect's network into our growing family."
