4. Can MTBS ad campaigns be tracked?

5. Why was MTBS recently upgraded? What was done, and why?


We think our monthly traffic is impressive because while we are nearly 100% promoted by word of mouth alone, it has doubled year over year over year. Unfortunately, MTBS' original web design prevented us from being properly crawled by search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. This design flaw kept MTBS hidden from the world.

To solve this, we have done the following:

• Our content management system is now something search engines can see.
• MTBS content is now indexed and can be easily found by members.
• The overall look was improved to be more user-friendly.

In a matter of weeks, all our pages have been properly indexed by Google and other search engines. Website Grader, a well respected SEO tester, now rates us at a full 98% compared to our earlier 65% score. It's a continuing process, and further enhancements and features are in the works.

6. Can and be trusted? Are there alternatives?

Alexa and Compete are services that work by having end users install a special "task bar" program. Based on how many of these "task bars" are visiting a given site, they estimate how much traffic a website is receiving. We have found no relationship between and results compared to our server statistics – and they should not be considered reliable marketing tools at all.

With the exception of direct server stats, Google Pagerank is considered the most reliable third party "importance" measurement tool. A mix of indexing and inbound linkage from credible sites; each step higher is a mark of logarithmic growth. Since MTBS' website upgrade, our Google Pagerank climbed from 4/10 to 5/10. We expect this to grow further still.

7. What is MTBS' relationship to The S-3D Gaming Alliance (S3DGA)?

S3DGA Logo

MTBS was founded and continues to operate as a consumer driven advocacy group for stereoscopic 3D gaming. Our intention was to build a large enough audience to demonstrate demand for S-3D gaming. Manufacturers and game developers could then take an active interest in S-3D gaming with confidence. This was very successful, and the next step was to create an industry body to represent the interests of manufacturers, game developers, and technology enablers in this field.

S3DGA was founded as a separate non-profit and non-proprietary organization, and MTBS serves as its consumer arm. While MTBS maintains its independence, official messages of interest from S3DGA are 100% determined by its board of directors and membership where appropriate.  MTBS has no voting rights in this organization and is not a member of its board of directors.

8. Does advertising on MTBS reflect support of S3DGA?

Not at all. MTBS is an independent organization. Advertising on MTBS does not reflect or suggest involvement with The S-3D Gaming Alliance.

9. Who owns Meant to be Seen?

MTBS was founded and is 100% owned and operated by Neil Schneider Productions Inc.
