Congratulations to Rule4, the peoples choice for Baltimore's best contractor website, 2010. Rule4, who received 49% of the vote, is one of five finalists to be recognized for their supburb website design. We received over 65 entries during the nomination period and selected the finalists based on overall design, content, interactivity and ease of use.
The purpose of this search was to honor our local contractors who have continued to invest in themselves, despite a floundering economy. It was my intent to reward all five finalists by (hopefully) boosting their organic search rankings via a peoples choice award (to help drive traffic) and inbound links from the Examiner. Accordong to an article in USA today, "Google ranks sites based on popularity. If authoritative sites link to you, you must be good, and therefore you get to the top of the list."
The Rule4 website is clean and very well layed out. It is difficult to design a webpage to include a lot of information and not look cluttered and confusing; however, Rule4 as met the challenge. Here is what one voter said of Rule4:
I've visited all five Websites and I believe this is about their Websites' content, not quality of service. As a Marketer I have to go for RULE4's website. It needs to improve its looks a little, but I found tons of useful information that would help me and others to make the decision to hire them. The Wallenstein's Website looks good, but ...that's just a starting point." Josh
Congratulations to all five finalists and especially our winner, Rule4. Keep up the good work and remember, although Rule #4 is It's not done til it's done, a website is never "done"! I look forward to seeing your site evolve.
