We've done some updating of the group's homepage the most visible being the insertion of the news items directly from the blog to give the page more immediate interest to the visitor. We've also inserted the Facebook Connect button which should be interesting to monitor as it allows Facebook users to click Like directly from the page and post a comment without even leaving the site. Really cool little function that you should consider for your own website.
In addition the Blog has had a mini makeover with the addition of a dozen new posts, the addition of the search blog feature and the Share button to the articles allowing it to be published to the users own Facebook
The blogs get indexed very quickly indeed and should be seen as a positive distribution channel – for example open Google and search for “sunset golf Ayrshire” – it was only published at 12.15pm yet it’s indexed first and second on Google already and ahead of the Turnberry listing itself – this isn’t an issue as it has a direct link back to the website.
