Independent Search Engine & Directory Membership Climbs To 108

Independent search engine & directory network gains international representation with member signups from more than 16 countries.

Winnipeg, MB , November 15, 2005 -- The Independent Search Engine & Directory Network(ISEDN.org) founded by ExactSeek.com in late June, 2005 continues to sign up new members at the impressive rate of 5 to 6 members per week, surpassing the 100 member mark just several months after its founding.

The organization whose stated purpose is to bring affordable and fraud free advertising to the online search world has adopted ExactSeek's hybrid pay-for-inclusion model and is marketing the fixed, flat-fee program to the web community, targeting advertisers who have become disillusioned with click fraud and escalating pay-per-click costs.

"In October, our best guesstimate was that the ISEDN would have at least 100 members by year end," said Mel Strocen, CEO of Jayde Online, Inc., ExactSeek's parent company. "Obviously, we're delighted that interest and signups have exceeded our expectations and even more pleased that the ISEDN is evolving as a true, world-wide entity with representation from Australia, Israel, France, Singapore, Switzerland, Russia, Armenia, Puerto Rico, the Phillipines, Germany, Pakistan, South Africa, India, Canada, the United Kingdom and the USA. Our current projection is that membership will top 140 by the end of 2005 and continue to grow rapidly during the first quarter of the new year. By necessity, this "fast" growth has made member integration and the creation of a governing executive committee the primary focus for the ISEDN, but we expect this to change in the new year with the focus shifting to raising public awareness of the ISEDN and promoting it as a viable alternative to the major search engines."

Strocen went on to say that the ISEDN was an emerging giant in the search industry and would be difficult for the public, the media and competitors to ignore as its size and search reach grew.

ExactSeek.com is part of the Jayde Online Network which includes GoArticles.com | SiteProNews.com | SEO-News.com | Blog-Search.com and FreeWebSubmission.com. Jayde Online Inc. has been Internet-focused from its inception in 1998 and primarily involved in the publication of email newsletters and the development of niche and general search engines.

The ISEDN was established in June, 2005 and is an outgrowth of ExactSeek's featured listing paid inclusion program which offers affordable, non-PPC search advertising to the online community. More information on the ISEDN, its mission statement and future plans can be found at ISEDN.org.
