Oilonline Teams With Rigzone To Launch New Site

Rigzone introduces online marketing program and showcases web development expertise with the re-launch of OilOnline.com.

Rigzone and OilOnline, two influential petroleum industry destinations, recently teamed up to put a new face on OilOnline while adding important technology enhancements. The redesigned site has been modified to better serve OilOnline's users with improved navigation, a cleaner look, and easier access to the site's renowned industry news services. The site also benefits from two new additions, a career center and an online store, developed in conjunction with Rigzone's industry-leading career services and product offerings.

David Kent, Jr., Rigzone President, said, "Through our relationship with OilOnline, Rigzone quickly doubles its marketing leverage in the online and offline worlds. With a combined reach of over one million page views per month, Rigzone's store and career center become the highest trafficked in the upstream industry. We are very proud to be one of the few .com companies to successfully leverage the Internet in this sector."

The Rigzone affiliate program, implemented in OilOnline's career and store sections, provides incremental revenue to oil and gas industry website owners. The program, available to any industry-related site, provides commissions for sales originating with member sites. It is backed by the strength of Rigzone's career center and online store. The career center provides hundreds of industry recruiters with easy access to a vast pool of qualified candidates and offers cost-effective payment options including individual resume purchasing and monthly access licenses. Rigzone's store serves as a central repository for books, maps, software, and data products for the upstream petroleum industry with hundreds of titles from leading publishers and smaller independents available anytime, from anywhere.

Rigzone's Web Services Group, the development arm of Rigzone that made the new OilOnline possible, provides Internet development and consulting services for companies in the oil and gas industry. With expertise in graphic design, programming, backend integration, strategy development, online marketing, and more, the Web Services Group was the perfect companion for OilOnline's development efforts.
