While many websites in the industry continue to trend downward, our website traffic has been trending up over the last 24 months. Our recent SEO initiative has had a huge impact on our website traffic. In addition to improving the way we use our H1 Tags, we rewrote our Title Tags for greater optimization. We optimized all of our images and certain other elements to increase page load speed. This greatly improved our relevance scores and made us even more attractive to the algorithms that Google, Bing and other Web browsers used. The end user experience has improved dramatically with faster page loads and the ability to view all machines under a single category without having to leave the page.

We are quickly becoming the site where buyers go to Locate used machines. They can now navigate within broader categories. They can click on a listing and navigate to other listings from that dealer, listings from that manufacturer or listings within that category. Remember, they can't buy your machines if they can't Locate them. If you're not currently listing your machines at Locatoronline.com, then you're missing out on thousands of prospective buyers.
We will continue to trend up and the value of the listings and ads at Locator will continue to increase!
If you would like to discuss the advantages of putting a display ad in our directory, a Banner Ad online or have never advertised with Locator Services before, simply call Jim Bowman at 703-683-5957 or email JBowman@locatoronline.com. He would be happy to help you round out your sales and marketing strategy and discuss which products and services would work best for you.

The research group now expects a 2 percent annualized growth compared with its previous estimate of 3.5 percent growth. The lull in wage growth will be temporary, says IHS, and skilled wages will accelerate through 2020.
General Electric's new CEO is starting to lay out bold plans to return the conglomerate to its industrial roots by slashing costs and streamlining its operations. John Flannery said recently that the company will shed business units worth more than $20 billion over the next year or two.
