Our Goal


 

Founded in December of 1999, by a now former resident, American Canyon Online has become the largest online resource for the citizens of American Canyon. We are a site run by the citizens, independent from the city, striving at creating a gathering place for each and every current or future resident in the area.  In essence, an online community for all of us in American Canyon.  It is the number one place to be updated on the latest local news and events, to discuss issues with other residents, and to contribute. Our goal is to make this website a supplement to what our city provides with an emphasis in bringing together our community, and to honor a freedom of speech other mediums do not provide.  Let your voice be heard!

 

"Two years ago when you would search for American Canyon nothing would show up. I wanted to create a place where eventually people could interact with each other. I wanted to create an online community for the city." - Issa, Founder, 2-18-2002

Services For Businesses

 

Without a doubt, American Canyon Online is the largest website on the internet dedicated solely to American Canyon. Check the online ratings and you will see we get the most traffic out of any other independent American Canyon related site.  If you have a company, own a web page, or want to use our site as a tool or investment, there are plenty of opportunities for you. If you feel that our site is the right place for you to advertise or become a partner with, we will gladly accept propositions and review all of them carefully. We are a growing community and are expanding daily. As of August 2008, we receive thousands of unique visitors (a visitor within 24 hours) to the front page each month according to our collected data - this number does not include the amount of page hits we receive among the entire site, only front page visits.  We are also ranked in the top 10 on search engines such as Google, and MSN.  We get an increase of 30% of visitors each year based on yearly trends and 60% of our visitors live in the American Canyon area based on IP address data.  However, unlike the majority of websites, we do limit the amount of advertising that we will allow so we will turn down offers. 


What we offer:
  • Text or image advertising anywhere on the website - contact us for a quote.
  • Premium listing in our directory with a link to your website.  A cheap and quick way to promote your website!
  • Web space for your new business with your own FTP username and account in the form of "YOU.AmericanCanyon.com" - contact us for a quote depending on the amount of space/bandwidth you need.
