Updates for Property Pages Begin
Submitted by Niall Fernie
27th March 2011
Due to increasing demand from our visitors we have started working on several upgrades to our property section. To begin with we are focusing on the Property for Sale section.
The first part of the upgrade allows visitors to filter the properties by location. We will shortly be adding more filters such as number of bedrooms and price range.
Also to improve the section further we have added a new category, building plots. This will allow our site visitors who are looking to build their own home find an appropriate spot without having to trawl through all the residential properties.
With some general housekeeping we have also removed all of the duplicate adverts. This was a careful operation to ensure we kept the best or most relevant entry. Many properties were advertised by both the home-owner and their agent. If anyone feels we have removed the wrong entry or would like the information updated or altered in any way, please feel free to e-mail niall[AT]caithness.org with the details.
This week the web site passed 16000 articles. The first article went on in April 2001 and each year since then has seen an increasing number of articles.
Caithness and Sutherland businesses can take advantage once again of our offer to run your ads in the run up to Christmas completely FREE of charge. Just send us your article ready to go with a photo and we will get it on our business section linked to your FREE business index page.
Employers in Caithness have made great savings in advertising their vacancies since we set up the recruitment section in our forum. Using our message board jobs section is simple and effective due to the large and growing audience on Caithness.org pages including this business section.
Phew, what a long week! We've just finished checking every web site link contained within the Caithness Business Index. On top of that, we've added links to every Caithness Business Facebook page, Twitter feed and YouTube video we could find on those web sites.
In order to provide a better service to the businesses in Caithness we have upgraded our business listings. Businesses in Caithness are now able to add more contact information to their listing helping their customers reach the right person for their enquiry.
In order to further promote businesses in Caithness we've added a couple of new features to our business listings, Facebook and YouTube. If your business has a page on Facebook we can add a like box to your listing here on the Caithness Business Index.
A long term error in the code for the Contact Us page on our Business Index site has now been identified and repaired. This should now mean that any reports of updates to Business details, changes or removals required of properties for sale or rent will now be able to be acted upon instead of being lost to the digital ether.
