Graphics.net becomes part of SEO.com to form a comprehensive Internet marketing firm. The SEO company now offers full-service, professional Web design combined with all aspects of search engine optimization.

SALT LAKE CITY (Aug. 19, 2009) — SEO.com, a leader in Internet marketing and search engine optimization, today announced it has expanded its services by acquiring Graphics.net, a Maryland-based Web site design and development firm.

“Graphics.net is made up of very skilled, talented graphic designers and developers. I’m very excited about the potential this change offers for new business,” said David Bascom, CEO and founder of SEO.com. “We will be able to offer a much more expansive array of services to our clients for even better results.”

This acquisition makes SEO.com a more inclusive Internet marketing company by enabling it to combine Website optimization with Web site design services and social media applications. In essence, it will help existing customers and future clients’ Web sites become search-engine friendly, aesthetically pleasing and more user-friendly.

“With Graphics.net, we’ll be able to merge top design skills and SEO strategies to deliver a compelling user experience along with the ability to show up at the top of search engines,” Bascom said.

Michael Benson from Graphics.net will join SEO.com as the vice president of Web development.

He’s worked with many types of clients, ranging from large corporations to small, non-profit organizations. His broad experience in marketing, project planning, and management skills make him a valuable team member.”

    Johan, it’s all about conversion. SEO gets people to the site. Good Web design and content keeps them there and converts traffic to sales. That’s what it’s all about, in an ideal world anyway.

    Exactly. And the good design means great flow, simplicity and leads to great conversion – just like you say. Many talk about this but few deliver.
