How does Advertising Solutions CMS solutions compare to other content management systems?

Advertising Solutions Content Management Systems have many advantages when compared to other CMS solutions:

  • Cost
    When it comes to cost, Advertising Solutions differs from the competition in a couple major ways. First, Advertising Solutions does not charge an annual licensing or renewal fee like many other CMS providers. This simply means with Advertising Solutions there's more money to invest back into your business for growth and additional sales!

  • Assistance
    With Advertising Solutions Technical Support, you've always got a helping hand. We offer 24/7 support by phone or email. Our team is knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. We're used to working with clients new to the internet and are happy to answer questions and explain things in non-technical terms to better help you understand and learn. With many other content management systems, you don't have a helping hand and have to hire a developer or designer if there's ever an issue or problem with the CMS.

  • Flexibility
    Advertising Solutions Content Management Systems are extremely flexible in several aspects including design, function, upgradeability, and hosting:

    1. A Advertising Solutions content management system website can have any custom design or layout integrated to match your company's image. Any designer familiar with PHP and HTML can make changes or edits to your website's overall graphic skin and design. Because PHP is open source and a main-stream preferred language, finding a developer to work with you is easy. With most other CMS solutions you are fairly limited to the templates provided and cannot truly customize the design to match your corporate image.

    2. The Advertising Solutions CMS solutions are more secure and functional than any competitor to date. Advertising Solutions builds using well documented, minimal code for quick and compatible browser rendering and function; in turn this makes for an optimized site at the programming level. The security behind Advertising Solutions are second to none as our programming team builds using only the best tested and secure technologies. Other CMS solutions are often littered with code and functions that are never used yet cluttering the system. In addition, other content management systems are often filled with so many extraneous files that upgrading or adding features can be cumbersome and costly.

    3. With a Advertising Solutions CMS solution, your website can be altered and modified to fit any of your company's unique and custom needs. Since Advertising Solutions uses open-source technology, you have an unlimited source of upgrade options and are not limited to the upgrades and add-ons Advertising Solutions has listed here on the site. Most content management system solutions are built with only a couple business models in mind, thus making you the customer adapt to the system instead of the system adapting to you. This can severly limit your website growth potential.

    4. While most customers choose to host their website here with Advertising Solutions, your content management system can be hosted with any company you choose that supports PHP, MySQL, Javascript and Apache on a Linux, Unix or FreeBSD server. Most other CMS providers require that you host with them and pay a setup fee, and then pay a monthly fee that will increase as your hosting requirements increase.

May I have a CMS site built while my current site stays live?

Yes, as long as you setup your new site on a separate hosting account from your current live site. Once your new site is ready to go live, then you can point the domain DNS to the new site and cancel the old site. If you want both sites running live simutaneously, you'll need to purchase an additional domain name for the second site.

What makes Advertising Solutions CMS search engine optimized?

Advertising Solutions Content Management Systems are optimized for search engines due to the extremely clean, tight, cross-browser compatible code used to build the system. Advertising Solutions doesn't use any code or functions that could potentially cause a browser malfunction and is made to work on practically any browser. Search engines such as Google factor into account whether or not the code used in a site is cross-browser compatible and how clean the code is when determining ranking in search engine results. Therefore, a site that is more compatible than another is going to get a better ranking in the search results than a site that has browser errors.

In addition, Advertising Solutions CMS solutions are built with content optimization in mind when it comes to your dynamic navigation system and utilizing proper META TAGS for header, link, and content optimization. Many clients utilizing Advertising Solutions Content Management System solution enjoy first page listings for their associated industry and search when following our optimization guidelines as noted in our newsletter.

Will switching to a Advertising Solutions CMS affect my current search engine listing and ranking?

Because Advertising Solutions Content Management Systems are optimized for search engines, and because your website will be increasing in size and content due to new unlimited pages and more, your website should see a dramatic increase in search engine ranking and popularity. The more information you have on your website related to your industry, the better your ranking with search engines will be. Remember, a search engine gives preference to those sites that appear to be an 'encylcopedia' of information on a particular topic.

If you currently are worried and have good ranking for certain pages, there are numerous ways with which to either duplicate the URL structure so as to not loose your indexed URL, or if needed look at using a 301 Redirect to direct traffic to the new page URL if it is different than the old URL.
