AmericanJuniorHockey.com has completed the contract process to become JuniorHockey.com. The transition has begun and there will be a few noticeable changes to the look and coverage of the site.
The biggest change comes with the additional writers. We will welcome new writers in the Northeast, West Coast, and even begin to venture into Canada.
The change also gives the site tremendous advantages when it comes to search engines like Google. Let's face it, Google rules the internet and is responsible for 90% or more of our traffic. JuniorHockey.com is already is #1 or #2 before the addition of our 10,000+ pages of junior hockey specific articles and profiles. In a nutshell, the move will make us the king of junior hockey searches and news articles.
What about Canada? It is not going to happen overnight, but we will begin to see the influx of Canadian content and articles. Players from Canada will also appear on our Prospects / Protected List as we are making arrangements to add all of Hockey Canada's junior players to the list.
Every player in the junior system will have their own web address that is extremely easy to remember. How does JuniorHockey.com/playername sound to you? Players currently on the Prospects / Protected List are already experiencing that advantage with the AJH domain. Players are encouraged to upgrade to a full A-List Prospect listing to take even further advantage from our level of national and international exposure.
Ultimately, the junior hockey world gets a little bit smaller today as we move forward with the site.
