Caithness Business Index Now Features Facebook and YouTube

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. (Follow the link to the Caithness.Org entry below to see an example). Show off how popular your business is and get a link directly to all your Facebook goodness.
Don't worry if you don't have a page on Facebook yet, we'll be adding page like links soon so Facebook users can like your entry on the business index, giving your business more exposure.
Is your business featured in a video on YouTube? Send us the link and we can embed the video in your entry to help show off what you are about to the world.
Have a look at The Captains Galley for an example.
To have a Facebook like box or YouTube video added to your entry simply contact us via our contact us page. Please send us the name of your business and the full link to the YouTube video, Facebook page or both.
We will be working on a new layout to our business entries over the next week and hope to improve the look and prominence of the new features as well as making sure that our visitors can easily find the information they need about your business.
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.
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.
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.
