Fresh Traffic Group Announces Contract Renewal With Winnipeg Goldeyes for Third Consecutive Season

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2010) - Fresh Traffic Group Inc. (OTCBB:FRTG) ("Fresh Traffic" or the "Company") a provider of innovative branding and leading Internet marketing services and solutions is pleased to announce The Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-engaged the Internet marketing / SEO services of the Fresh Traffic Group for their 2011 season. This is the third consecutive year for services. The two organizations teamed up two seasons ago to begin expanding the Goldeyes brand across the major search engines with the goal of driving increased traffic to their e-commerce store at www.goldeyes.com.

"We've always been very proud of our merchandise and receive countless compliments on our unique look and style," said Goldeyes assistant general manager Regan Katz. "We decided in 2009 we wanted to test the market by engaging Fresh Traffic to help with our visibility on the search engines and promote our merchandise online. Fresh has us listing #1 in Canada for the search terms we've selected. Our focus now is to improve our e-commerce platform so we can capitalize on our increased traffic and established online brand."

Jerry Booth, President of Fresh Traffic Group stated, "We are quite pleased to have received contract renewal for a third consecutive season for the Winnipeg Goldeyes. It will be an exciting growth year as the Goldeyes have recently joined the American Association league, there will be more games, and more entertainment for baseball fans on both sides of the border. We can help the Goldeyes win on-line, we also wish them the best to be winners on the field for the 2011 season."

Earlier this year the Winnipeg Goldeyes joined the American Association of Independent professional baseball league. http://www.americanassociationbaseball.com 

This is historic for a number of reasons. For one, it will be the biggest loop in which this latest incarnation of the Goldeyes franchise has ever played. For another, the American Association is steeped in history. The first edition of "The Association," was created in 1902 as an independent minor league in the Midwestern area of the United States. After undergoing various changes throughout the years, including becoming a Triple A loop for awhile, the latest version of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball was formed on Oct. 11, 2005.

This is a win-win for everyone involved, including the fans and here's a sampling of the comments from around the league:

"It's an exciting day for the American Association," said Association commissioner Miles Wolff. "We're adding four clubs that have excellent operations on and off the field, and it's going to make us a very strong 14-team league. In 2010, the four clubs joining us drew nearly 900,000 fans to their games."

"This is a thrilling move, both for our fans and for our players from a competition perspective," said Kansas City T-Bones co-owner Adam Ehlert. "It gets us back to the regionally-competitive landscape of when we founded the T-Bones. Lincoln was a great rival, and I know Wichita will be!"

"We're looking forward to our new venture in the American Association and continuing our tradition of championship baseball for the fans of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks," said RedHawks owner and president Bruce Thom. "We are excited to renew our rivalries with Lincoln, St. Paul, Sioux Falls and Sioux City and competing with the other teams in the American Association."

And of course, these comments from Sam Katz, Goldeyes owner and the man who set the merger in motion: "The merger will re-establish the competitive rivalries the Goldeyes once had with the likes of St. Paul, Sioux City, Sioux Falls and Lincoln, while maintaining the longstanding rivalries with Fargo-Moorhead, Gary and Kansas City."

It's going to be a great season in 2011. Not only will the Goldeyes be in a brand new league but there will be: "New Teams, Old Rivalries, Great Baseball."

With the new additions, the league will now be split up into three divisions: the Goldeyes along with the Fargo-Moorhead (N.D.) RedHawks, St. Paul (MN) Saints and Sioux Falls (N.D.) Fightin' Pheasants will make up the North Division. The Kansas City (KS) T-Bones, Lincoln (NE) Saltdogs, Sioux City (IA) Explorers and Wichita (KS) Wingnuts and Gary (IN) SouthShore Railcats will form the Central Division. And the El Paso (TX) Diablos, Fort Worth (TX) Cats, Grand Prairie (TX) Air Hogs, Pensacola (FL) Pelicans and Shreveport-Bossier (LA) Captains will make up the South Division.
