Rule4 voted Baltimore's best contractor website 2010


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.

    as the webmaster of Rule 4... 'popularity" is also measured by human visitors to your site ,"engagement" and length of visit... "in-bound" links from authoritative higher ranking sites are good for a google page rank however if the link does not bring you business or traffic it could hurt you in the long run if it is not a "relevant", traffic producing element on your home page...

    There are many 'factors' that aid in the visibility and ranking of your site... but hiring an expert search engine optimizer who happens to have marketing experience is a wise investment these days...

    Website might be good but their excessive employee turnover is a disgrace! You might talk to the same person for maybe 3 months if you're lucky and then, POOF they're gone! Longevity and loyalty doesn't appear to be their strong suit. Other than the owner, there probably isn't a person on staff that has been there more than 18 - 24 months. Tells me something!
