PHILADELPHIA, PA., June 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 1 &1 Internet, Inc. (www.1and1.com), a global leader among Web hosts, today debuts 1 &1 MyWebsite 8 featuring powerful new tools for building online visibility. Since online visibility is a mission-critical issue, especially for small businesses, the award-winning 1 &1 MyWebsite package now offers a central, easy to use dashboard called the "1 &1 Online Success Center." This platform analyzes and displays the elements needed for online visibility while guiding business owners via a step-by-step process to improve their online presence. The new generation, 1 &1 MyWebsite 8, offers unbeatable tools especially for small businesses and freelancers to achieve online success.

Most business owners today find that an effective website has a direct impact on both their online and offline success. To support businesses in their need to get found on the Internet, 1 &1 MyWebsite now includes a new dashboard (the Online Success Center) providing optimization across three distinct areas: Basic Information, Online Directories, and Content Optimization.

By centrally managing Basic Information like name, address, phone number (NAP) as well as opening hours and directions, users can enhance their local search ranking. With this information and the semantic appeal of the website, the Google preview is automatically generated allowing users to check how the data is displayed to their customers on the most popular search engine.

1 &1's Online Success Center also provides an instant appraisal of how a website appears on the most relevant Online Directories like Google Maps or Yelp, which are getting more and more important for local searches. Users can automate the management of their listings by applying 1 &1 ListLocal to their online strategy.

The innovative Content Optimization interface guides users through an easy-to-use, speed-dial graphic that illustrates their success level for search engine optimization (SEO). Content can be optimized to a high degree by leveraging the SEO tool which is integrated in selected packages.
