WEB TECHNOLOGY PROVIDER OFFERS INDUSTRY LEADING SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION FOR RICH INTERNET APPLICATIONS
New York, August 23, 2006 -- Roundarch, a user-centric Web design and technology services provider, announces that it has hired Navneet Virk, as search engine strategist, to expand the company’s search engine marketing (SEM) expertise. Virk is an expert in directing and implementing Web search initiatives including keyword research, content development, Web development, link strategies and pay-per-click (PPC) campaign strategies. Virk will focus on integrating Rich Internet Applications (RIA) with SEM.
“RIA offer users a more engaging online experience, but it is difficult for traditional search engines to index them,” said Aman Datta, vice president at Roundarch. “Navneet’s strategic hire will help us solve the RIA/SEM issue and provide our clients with the power to influence users’ online experience at every touch point – from the crucial search phase to the final decision making process, within a rich and immersive site.”
Prior to joining Roundarch, Virk worked with Agency.com where he consulted on search engine optimization for a multitude of clients including Maidenform, CNN, Long and Foster, Choice Hotels, AllSteel and Audible.com. He received his masters in science from the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
“It is exciting to be on the cutting edge of Web 2.0 and SEM,” said Virk. “I was drawn to Roundarch because of its dynamic team and its vision for what is possible in the next evolution of the Web.”
Virk recently made a presentation on maintaining and increasing search related traffic during a site redesign or a domain change at the Search Engine Strategies Conference & Expo. The conference is the premier event for search engine marketing and optimization and was held Aug. 10 in San Jose, Calif. To receive a copy of Virk’s presentation, please email email@example.com.
