Code18 Interactive Moves Web Design Studio from Atlanta to New York City

Digital agency, Code18 Interactive, is pleased to bring their web design, WordPress development and creative digital advertising services to the New York City area.

Originally established in Atlanta, Georgia and founded by Steve Pilon, Code18 Interactive has recently relocated its web design studio to New York City. Code18 Interactive is now operating out of Manhattan’s Grind Spaces—a collaborative workspace located on Broadway at 39th Street, just South of Times Square.

“Grind Spaces is the ideal home for us,” says Pilon. “We’re a small team, so it is great to be able to feed off of the energy of such a smart and varied group of people. Plus, when we need to avail ourselves of another’s expertise, there are dozens of talented people to draw from all working under one roof. The range of available talent is extraordinary.”

Code18 Interactive’s move to Manhattan comes on the heels of a successful ten-year run in Atlanta. “Our hands-on, small team approach allows us to provide thoughtful, high-quality work for a wide range of consumer and media brands,” states Pilon. “But as our client base continues to grow, we realize that we need to contine to grow as well. So we decided to shake things up and begin our next chapter in New York City.”

Code18 Interactive is a seasoned, full-service team of creatives and developers offering web design, WordPress development and digital advertising services to consumer and media brands. Through unconventional thinking and user-centered design, Code18 Interactive has brought measurable growth and results to a wide range of leading brands, including Unisom, Gold Bond, Algonquin Books, CNN, Verizon Wireless, Coca-Cola, USA Today, TKTS and many more.

The digital agency is currently seeking new clients, new partners, and new talent to join its growing team. For more information, visit http://www.code18.com

Search engine marketers discuss a variety of methods to raise website awareness and rankings within search engines

Flooding web pages with keywords is not only user-unfriendly; it’s also a waste of time. That was the message Search Engine Marketers William Leake and Kelly Meacham had for attendees of the 2007 South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Panel discussion “Making SEO and Usability Work Together.”

“When it comes to natural search results it’s really just a robot analyzing the HTML of a site, with external and internal links being much more important than the text on the page,” said Leake, CEO and President of Apogee Search. Both Leake and Meacham expressed the need for website content to be tailored to the user and not the search engine. “Keeping users engaged, ultimately keeps them satisfied,” Meacham added. “If a site is full of jargon serving as keyword density, a user’s interest and/or sales are lost.”

The SXSW Interactive Festival features five days of panels, keynote discussions, trade show and exhibition events. The wide variety of programming offered at SXSW Interactive in addition to the presence of SXSW Film and SXSW Music helps make it a completely original event. Together, Leake, and Meacham, have over two decades of SEO, web marketing, and website usability experience; and were happy to share their know-how to a room-overflowing crowd of 200+ people.

Attendance at the “Making SEO and Usability Work Together” power session was standing room only despite rainy weather conditions that dampened overall attendance that day. This impressive turnout reflects the intensity of interest in search engine marketing, as almost 90% of all websites are initially found through search engines. For those that missed the session, the SXSW website (www.sxsw.com) will be adding a podcast of the session in the near future.

As for better search engine optimization Leake stressed the importance of putting keywords within a website’s title tags and letting in-bound links serve as the main bait for the algorithm robots. He explained this strategy by saying, “Google’s search algorithms are constantly changing, and keyword density is only a small portion – typically no more than six percent — of what drives those algorithm. Therefore, the most sure-fire way to keep up with their changing patterns is to always have a wide variety of outside sites linked to your site.” Afterwards Leake closed the session by saying, “A proper site is one designed for humans and not robots. So if you want it to rank high and still be user-friendly, write fluidly and link constantly.”
