Since 1997, one of Boston’s worst kept secrets for residents or visitors has been an unassuming, modest, yet supremely useful guide: Searchboston.com (www.searchboston.com). This “secret” resource attracts over 50,000 unique monthly visitors, features a simple interface and plenty of information about thousands of city events and businesses. As of January 1, 2010, all of this is about to change – for the better.
SearchBoston.com’s founder, Roger Kruppa, announced the new joint venture with Polar Design (www.polardesign.com), a metropolitan Boston area interactive design and Internet marketing agency. “Polar Design has established itself as a first rate web firm with a commitment to service and quality. I am completely confident that they will continue to build on SearchBoston.com’s foundation and create a dynamic website and valued resource for the Boston community. I am very excited about what the future of SearchBoston.com will hold.”
Founded in 1999, Polar Design has served clients in the Boston area and greater New England region realize sales and marketing objectives through award winning design and cost-effective search engine marketing services. Now, Polar Design will apply its expertise and resources to expanding SearchBoston.com to include an enhanced events section, real estate, social media integration and many other features.
This isn’t to say that SearchBoston.com will stray from its roots. The site’s inviting, accessible approach to the serving the Boston community’s thirst for event and business information will remain, as will its support of small businesses seeking cost-effective ways to advertise on the Internet.
