“Discover The ‘Secret Weapon’ That Marketers In The Know Use To Quickly and easily launch fully customized websites that draw tons of natural search traffic.
Dominate highly profitable niches, and crank out serious money – In Just A Few Clicks!”
From: Denis de Bernardy
Subject: Your Online Success
Dear Website Owner,
Have you ever wondered why a few people succeed online and make money quickly while most struggle just to break even?
It's not a lack of good ideas for new websites. The pros know little secrets that amateurs do not. One is a solution that allows them focus on marketing.
Most web entrepreneurs spend so much time creating, customizing, and maintaining their websites, that they don't have time for what really matters — creating content, generating traffic, and making money.
My name is Denis de Bernardy. I am writing these words of introduction on behalf of the entire Semiologic Pro community.
A few years back, I was consulting as a business developer for early-stage start-ups in the IT sector. My primary interest in building an online presence was to generate an occasional lead.
I picked WordPress, the blogging software, as my site's content management system. I did so because it was flexible. Because it had a growing community. Because it was free. You've heard the same reasons countless times.
Things weren't as rosy as anticipated. And I figured… If code oriented users such as myself are spending hours on maintaining a website, others such as you must be spending days and weeks on it. Things didn't need to be that way. They no longer do.
Semiologic Pro, which I initially released in 2005, turns WordPress into a niche website powerhouse.
It comprises WordPress, the most flexible theme in the market, and a carefully selected collection of plugins. It has been tailored for the needs of Internet marketers from day one.
Over the years, I've seen Semiologic Pro used for multitudes of reasons and purposes.
The built-in search engine optimization usually sparks the initial interest. Many marketers entrust it to power ad- or affiliate-product driven websites. Their success lies, among other key factors, in Semiologic Pro's ability to generate organic traffic from search engines.
Ease of use is paramount to us. Most internet marketers have little or no technical skills, yet need to generate complex websites with all sorts of features and little effort. Semiologic Pro delivers on these fronts as well.
Semiologic Pro is also about support. We never let a customer down as a rule of thumb. We do not hesitate to get our hands dirty when the need arises.
There is much more. I feel extremely comfortable highlighting — and this is widely acknowledged — that Semiologic Pro is the best maintained piece of software in the internet marketing world. Every day, members assist one another and exchange ideas with each other. And community-driven testing is an integral part of our quality assurance processes.
Many contribute ideas and resources, which we systematically take into account. Our developments are driven by user-contributed best practices. And as our customers include celebrities such as Michel Fortin, Jim Morris, Andy Wibbels and Paul Colligan, you're essentially assured that an expert contributed the very best practices.
Last but not least, we've compiled lists of expert users and designers who can assist you in all sorts of tasks. All of them know and use the software. These value-added service providers ultimately allow you to allocate even more of your time to marketing.
Looking back… I cannot emphasize this enough… Semiologic Pro is much more than a piece of software that internet marketers use to create niche websites. Semiologic Pro is a community-driven solution, for internet marketers, by internet marketers.
To Your online success,
Denis de Bernardy
Our names are Mike and Larry
We were Semiologic Pro customers before becoming hyperactive members. So much so, in fact, that we are now part of the Semiologic Team.
As Denis pointed out so perfectly, Semiologic has had a stellar history of SEO leadership, recognized by many of the topmost internet marketeers as the undisputed leader.
Indeed, while many so called "premium themes" have come upon the scene, none match the SEO capabilities of Semiologic Pro – and none of them claim to.
Now, we are pleased that we are joining Denis, becoming more involved in the daily operations of Semiologic. We have each been using and supporting the growth and development of Semiologic since near day one. when Denis first introduced it to the public after successfully using it on his own websites.
Denis remains as the CEO in the background. Larry is responsible for the business side of Semiologic in the US and is contributing to the documentation and support efforts.
Mike is leading the technical development team and is primarily responsible for product upgrades and new feature implementation. We can also be found in the support forums, and in the ticketing system, assisting a very capable staff of support technicians.
And yes, in addition to his CEO duties, Denis will also continue to lend his expertise of insight and coding wizardry to insure that Semiologic remains at the forefront in Internet marketing technology. He is loaded with ideas and many of those will be exploited with the introduction of Semiologic Version 6, now scheduled for a January 2009 release.
Semiologic Pro is a carefully prepared combination of WordPress, tweaked with proprietary Semiologic code, and integrated with over 70 tools and plugins, each selected for both utility and SEO considerations – then tested to work harmoniously with each other and with the Semiologic framework.
"I Love Semiologic Pro And So Does Google!"
"Using your great looking theme and your carefully selected collection of plugins allowed me to quickly and easily create a fabulous blog that the spiders crawl all over and my readers love."

Press Release Monkey
Entry of the Semiologic API key triggers the availability of documentation snippets which describe the use and implementation of each plugin. This is an area that is continuously expanding and is presented automatically as it is developed. No special upgrades are necessary.
Many WordPress implementations load pages left to right, making the sidebar appear before the content. Not Semiologic….. Semiologic has an optimized canvas or layout which serves your content first, then the sidebars. While this may occur before your page appears, the search engines do notice, reading and indexing your content faster, because they see it sooner.
This optimized canvas was created by Denis, while conducting research on semantic indexing algorithms similar to those used by Google for the launch of their search engine.
Layout and Skin Switchers
Semiologic Pro includes 18 layouts, 24 skins, 3 width options, 12 font options and 3 font size options. What more can you want. Actually you will probably choose one or two combinations as favorites, but it is a great comfort to know that you have so much variety, and that each one has Built-in SEO
"It Makes Putting Up A Good Looking Blog A Snap!"
"Semiologic Pro is the greatest CMS blogging software out there. The AdSpaces plugin is unbeatable. With that, anyone can place ads on their blog in seconds.
"It's easy to use, the color schemes all look great, and the number of plugins that come with it are unbelieveable."

Stop Smoking Tips
With Semiologic you can have a different header on any page ….every page, if you wish. You want the navbar above the header… No Problem….simply drag the widgets within the Header area.
In addition to the standard template based upon your choice in the Layout and Skin switchers, you can also select a sales page or a mono-column template to create some variety and override the "blog" look for those particular pages that need it
When you see how Semiologic uses Widgets you just won't believe it. Widgets can be anywhere: in the header….. before the entry…..in the content….in header and footer blocks…..in the footer…and in the sidebars. You would be hard pressed to find an area where you could not insert a widget. Imagine…Every area of every page can be reordered and is reconfigurable. Your imagination becomes your only limitation.
Semiologic has created generalized or fuzzy widgets which can be used for posts, pages, and links. They can also be further customized to show only certain categories, allowing contextual sidebar navigation.
For easy entry of widgeted content into posts and pages, Semiologic has inline widgets, a virtual widget location which can be accessed from a drop down menu within the editor to effortlessly insert a widget any place within the content. Inline widgets are discussed in more detail below.
"Semiologic has been the best purchase I have made in a long time."
"I used to use Dreamweaver for most of my sites but now I'm addicted to Semiologic Pro.
The features are just amazing and it just keeps getting better. Denis is always on top of development and he provides the best customer service I have ever seen. When I need assistance he is always there to help right away.

When you wish to control the display of the content specified in one of your widgets, you simply deselect the box where you do not wish the content to appear. The selection is done totally within the widget. Simple…intuitive… and very powerful.
The Ad manager is a widget that is simple in its operation, yet powerful in its implementation. The same widget contexts described above allow placement anywhere you want, and prevent it in appearing wherever you don't. Covers pretty much every scenario.
Inline widgets are actually any widget that has been inserted into the Inline Widget area. A very convenient way to allow the insertion of almost any widget anywhere you want within a post or page by simply selecting the widget from a drop down menu within the editor. Maximum flexibility with minimum effort… Thanks to the genius of Semiologic
Lets you fully customize the output of your site's RSS feed
There are three widgets in this category.
A Silo Page Widget outputs what amounts to an automatically generated navigation menu for your static pages.
A Silo Stub widget, which you can use as an inline widget when you'd like to automatically generate the contents of a page whose only purpose is to link to its children and
A Silo Map widget, which you can use as an inline widget to automatically output a full site map of your site.
The related widgets plugin for WordPress will let you display lists of related posts and pages. It requires that you use WordPress tags.
Lets you easily insert podcasts and videos in your post. Hassle-free approach — a mere upload and you're done. Created using the input of Paul Colligan, the podcast guru.

"Semiologic Pro – World Class SEO Application!"
"I have through testing verified my rankings based on keywords. Whenever I have changed from the Semiologic Pro theme to another theme I have lost my number 1 ranking on Google.
"I would still be on the first page however I would no longer be number 1. Within 48 hours of changing back to the Semiologic Pro theme I would be comfortably in my number 1 position once again. Function over form. It is all about results. "
– Steven Porcaro
