If your company is having a hard time gaining visibility in the search engines, you might want to check out the new SEO solution from 1&1.

The popular Web hosting company developed and launched SEO Spotlight to help companies with a limited marketing budget acquire visibility in the search results. The solution acts as an interactive advisor and includes a keyword generator that automatically assembles the best search terms for a website.

The new SEO tool also offers tips for back-link strategies and provides support for creating a Google Places entry. Additionally, SEO Spotlight can be used to keep an eye on the competition - users simply need to submit a competitor's Internet address into the system in order to monitor the competition's rankings in relation to their own.

"Prior to the development of 1 &1 SEO Spotlight, there has been extensive market research," said 1 &1 CEO Oliver Mauss. "We found out that most solutions miss the mark on the needs of many small and medium businesses. With our new SEO tool, for the first time there is an offer that fully considers the requirements of beginners and can be used without programming knowledge."

SEO Spotlight is included in the 1&1 MyWebsite package, but can also be purchased starting at $9.99 per month with all 1&1 shared Web hosting, eShop, Dedicated Server, Dynamic Cloud Server or other MyWebsite packages. Furthermore, the company is currently offering a free 30-day trial period for the new tool.
