The three main units for measuring ROI are E*Card Views (general visibility), E*Page Views (targeted visibility) and Clicks-Out (clicks to the customer’s own website). The ROI varies depending on the corresponding subscription (Starter, Access, Entry, etc.). We can see that the combined number of E*Card Views and E*Page Views – which represent a company’s visibility – helps to increase the number of clicks to the customer’s site (bubble). Depending on the type of subscription taken out by the business, the more its visibility increases, the higher its ROI.10 www.europages.com 2012_SalesBrochure_ChinaENG.indd 10 29/02/12 11:43:06

  13. 13. Customized reports on demand (Findit) Who searches for what, who searches for whom, which keywords are used for which industry sector, where do users come from, which companies have been viewed, from which queries and in which countries?

  15. 15. Much like a galaxy, the structure of the Internet is determined by gravitation. In this expanding universe, websites, like planets and satellites, revolve around solar centres that represent the (big three) search engines. Given their mass, the search engines attract matter present on sites (text, keywords, video clips, photos). The more matter there is, the greater the attraction. On EUROPAGES, this matter is all the more considerable given that it is published on 26 different sites: Europages.co.uk, Europages.fr, Europages. it, Europages.es, Europages.de, etc. This makes it a highly attractive target for the leading three search engines (Google, Bing and , Yahoo!), as well as for national search engines with considerable local influence (Yandex in Russia, Baidu in China, Rambler in Korea, etc.). This system works so well not only because the content is translated into 15 languages, but also because the information’s assembly is constantly being optimized for natural referencing (SEO). As a result, the businesses listed are seen by users in over 200 countries in their native language. Translation at the service of search engine optimisation EUROPAGES translates its customers’ content into 15 languages*.

As Analysis Translation soon as a new project is memory launched, the translation memory proposes the available translation if it finds any equivalent translations. If no equivalent translations are found, the Translation content is translated from scratch. Once completed, this content is automatically placed online. If translated content is in Modification any way considered non-compliant with a company’s requirements, the company can either request a modification, or offer its own translation. In 2011, 175,000 texts and 7,000,000 keywords were translated into 15 languages.

  25. 25. Description & keywords The essential elements of your indexing on the web The description text* The first thing users will see on your E*Page is the description of your activity. This description must use expressions characteristic of your line of business, since it essentially presents your company’s know-how, much like a CV. It is translated and published in 15 languages, and indexed by the main search engines. It must be clear and concise. Bear in mind that visitors prefer short sentences rather than a long series of words. Keywords The role of keywords is to define the specific aspects or your business, and the list of your products or services. Translated and published in 15 languages, these keywords are indexed by search engines. Note that the more precise your keywords are, the better your conversion rate will be. Give preference to highly specific keywords (e.g. piston and screw- type compressors) rather than keywords that are overly general or vague, and that will merely generate "noise" (e.g. compressors). Additional keywords Each type of subscription comes with a set number of keywords (e.g. 33 for a Premium subscription). However, you can always add more keywords to your E*Page. This will improve its reactiveness to searches and, as a result, its visibility. Additional keywords are sold individually. They are translated and published in 15 languages. Priority keywords To give added weight to certain keywords, you can confer priority or ranking points to them. Priority keywords increase the overall value of your E*Page and its positioning. The «priority» option is sold per individual keyword. * Your description text can contain 1000 characters in your natural language. For other languages, you must provide a shorter description comprising no more than 500 characters. This description will then be translated in 14 languages (see pages 14-15). Your E*Page will thus be published in a total 15 languages. EUROPAGES 2012 252012_SalesBrochure_ChinaENG.indd 25 29/02/12 12:12:17

  33. 33. Description text: you can provide a description of up to 1000 characters in the source language, and another description of up to 500 characters for translation into 14 other languages. These translations effectively multiply the indexing of the E*Pages on the leading national and international search engines. Your E*Page will thus be published in a total 15 languages. Keywords: these are headings (from EUROPAGES Classification) and structured keywords (from EUROPAGES Taxonomy) selected from a predefined list, free keywords (not included in Taxonomy) and brand names. Each E*Page must contain at least one heading for classification purposes. The keywords are translated in 15 languages. Only the Latin alphabet is used. Cyrillic and Arabic alphabets and Chinese ideograms are not accepted. Weblink: this is a decisive element in relation to your ROI. Remember to display at least one link on your E*Page. Some subscriptions allow for up to 3. Always make sure that the link is valid. Contacts: there are a number of contact details that you can publish on your E*Page (phone, mobile phone, fax and e-mail address). This number varies depending on the subscription, however you must always provide at least one valid e-mail address, since this is how most users prefer to establish contact. Again, make sure that the e-mail address given on your E*Page is valid. Logo: this is your company’s visual ID. It must be in Gif format and cannot be animated. Maximum pixel size: 100 x 100. Maximum file size: 10 KB. Map: the mapping service used on EUROPAGES is provided by Google Maps. Secure account: an account is created for each member with a paid subscription. You will receive a user ID and password to log on to your account at all times and in complete security. The following can be modified: password, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, descriptions, keywords, images, videos, websites and business info. Videos and slideshows: you can display up to 10 videos or PowerPoint-type slideshows on your E*Page. The procedure is straightforward (see pages 20-21). To index these visual objects on the Internet and increase traffic to your E*Page, you can add a title of up to 80 characters and a description of up to 200 characters. PDF documents and links: you can publish up to 10 PDF documents (each with a file size of up to 2 MB) or 10 additional hyperlinks. You upload these documents or URLs to the dedicated space on your myEUROPAGES account. They will be immediately visible on your E*Page. For each element, you can add a title of up to 80 characters and a description of up to 200 characters. Images: you can insert up to 10 images on your E*Page. These can be photos, illustrations or diagrams in Jpeg, Gif or Png formats. Maximum pixel size: 700 x 400. Recommended pixel size: 420 x 420. Maximum file size: 50 MB. Once you have uploaded an image to your account, it will be immediately visible on your E*Page. For each image, you can add a title of up to 80 characters and a description of up to 200 characters. Business info: you can provide a number of details on your activity. These details will help users get a better idea of your company: type of activity, workforce, year founded, legal status, revenue, languages spoken, terms of delivery, payment methods, etc. myStats: you can access your account and its stats at all times to gauge the effectiveness of your E*Page (visits, clicks, e-mails, geographic origins, etc.). Your stats are updated every month. EUROPAGES 2012 332012_SalesBrochure_ChinaENG.indd 33 29/02/12 11:43:26

RU The customer’s products can be retrieved by a crawler on their Internet site or via an electronic file (see page 22-23). You must first make sure that the crawl operation is feasible before proposing this option to the customer. This is because the data on sites that use Flash technology or PDF files cannot be retrieved via the crawler. Moreover, you must check that the address of the site to crawl (i.e. its URL) is valid. Lastly, remember to provide the name, phone number and e-mail address of a person to contact on the customer’s premises in the event of any technical problem. Concerning the multiple-language publication, if the customer wants to publish his catalogue in German on the German version of his E*Page, in English on the English version and in French on the French version, he will have to purchase three catalogues. EUROPAGES can proceed with a multi-language publication for the following nine (9) languages: (EN) English, (FR) French, (IT) Italian, (ES) Spanish, (DE) German, (NL) Dutch, (PT) Portuguese, (PL) Polish and (RU) Russian.
