Website update

As I mentioned last week I will keep you updated on the progress of the page ranking for website that I am trying out my theory on. I have to report that so far no movement, but that may be as expected as it will take the google robot time to find it and validate its findings this can take from two weeks upwards.
On another front our site has seen some great improvement on several fronts. Firstly the new fresher look website is nearly ready to put up on the server with a lot more pages added for viewers with information on the Vendee and secondly on the increase in rankings of the different pages, namely for odd terms like ‘restaurants in fontenay le comte’ #2, ‘5 bedroom gite vendee now at #2 and the two star movers ‘group accommodation Vendee’ and 5 bedroom gite with pool both at #1 not to mention on page 2 for a whole lot of search terms. Will this be enough to stop advertising on those big websites that rank highly for thousands of search term, probably not but it is encouraging.
The end of the mad season is within sight so thoughts now turn to next years advertising and works needed around the complex. Niggling little break downs that kept re-occurring need to be sorted to make next season better both for me and my customers. The leak on the indoor pool has been traces to the bond de fosse where a split was made in the outer casing by using the wrong length screw. This will mean emptying the pool and putting in a new bond de fosse, well relatively easy it is time consuming, but will save a lot of expensive water and heating costs. As for the advertising I’m still not sure which way I’m going to go. The temptation is to reduce the advertising on the big sites to 1 or 2 and then make up with PPC if needed, or leave it as is for another year. Keep watching these pages to find out.
