EngineWorks SEO Enhances New Online Presence for RockResorts, Highly Optimized Web Sites for Luxury Resort Hotels

May 20, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
PORTLAND, Ore. (May 20, 2009) EngineWorks, Inc. (www.engineworks.com), a full-service Search Engine Marketing (SEM) company based in Portland that specializes in proven ROI-based, data-driven marketing solutions, is pleased to announce its contribution to the enhancement of thirteen (13) all-new dynamic Web sites created by Resort Technology Partners (RTP) for RockResorts International, LLC (RockResorts).

RockResorts, owner and operator of an impressive collection of luxury resort hotels including The Osprey Lodge at Beaver Creek, CO, and the Lodge at Vail, CO, unveiled its completely redesigned Web sites on May 7, 2009. These exciting new online destinations have been designed by RTP to spotlight the world-class amenities and awe-inspiring locations at each alluring resort, and to provide an enhanced on-site experience for visitors. RTP, a Web site design and development agency specializing in services for the hospitality industry, partnered with EngineWorks to ensure that these new RockResorts sites feature proper search engine optimization (SEO) enhancements, so that they can be easily found by travelers shopping online for resort destinations.

In addition to integrating advanced optimization elements into each new Web site, EngineWorks worked closely with RTP to implement proper '301 re-directs' for more than 500 Web pages that existed on the previous RockResorts Web sites. A 301 re-direct is an SEO technique that informs search engine algo-rithms (a.k.a. 'spiders') that a specific Web page has moved permanently to a new location, and is no longer available at the prior URL. This process ensures that returning visitors, and book-marked links, arrive at the newly redesigned RockResorts pages.

EngineWorks also implemented a robust social media marketing campaign for RockResorts that features newly created social media profiles on the popular networking site Facebook.com for each destination resort. These Facebook profiles enable prospective lodging guests to directly interact with other individuals who have stayed at, or are considering staying at, a specific resort owned by RockResorts. Ultimately, this social media marketing campaign is designed to increase the volume and richness of two-way communication between RockResorts and its target audience.

"RockResorts takes pride in delivering unparalleled service and exquisite experiences to our resort guests," proclaimed Daniel Swanson, Corporate Marketing Manager, E-Commerce at RockResorts & Vail Resorts Hospitality. "Our new enhanced Web sites convey this fact instantly," Mr. Swanson added, "which is why we chose EngineWorks to ensure that they are easily discovered by individuals searching for luxury resort accommodations."
