Property Sales from Skene Edwards,WS

Leveraging your blog for search engine success

The ultimate travelling experience


Google buys YouTube
You might remember last month we featured the YouTube video service site.

The Google guys must have been reading the Blot newsletter, because a few days later they bought YouTube for around £850m!

Dot-com success lives on! YouTube have yet to make any profit, so why have Google invested? Well, it's for the advertising potential of the YouTube audience. Nielsen Market Research reckon that in August more UK people (4.4m) visited YouTube than tuned into ITV.

Google know how to make money and YouTube have lots of potential spenders. As long as they can sort out copyrighting of the music and videos, it could be a licence to print money.

AND you can still see the two Eddie Gray wonder goals for Leeds Utd against Burnley - worth £850m alone!

Welcome to our October newsletter....

  • Property Sales from Skene Edwards,WS
  • We’ve just completed the second phase of the web site for solicitor and estate agency Skene Edwards, WS.

    One of Edinburgh’s oldest companies, they have a tradition of providing professional legal services with a personal touch. Skene Edwards solicitors are all experienced across a range of legal areas, so it means you don’t have to deal with a different lawyer for every specialty – and this means you get better service.

    In the latest phase of the site, we’ve added our web property sales and rental system, which allows visitors to browse the estate agency properties for sale, view property details and download schedules.

    It’s all managed by the Blot Content Management System, which lets the estate agency team quickly add and amend properties, and even put an Under Offers stripe across a property photo, all at the click of a button!

    If you’re in the market for an Edinburgh property, make sure the Skene Edwards web site is the first place you look.

  • Leveraging your blog for search engine success
  • Over the last few months, we've been running a series of articles about blogs - what they are, and how you can use them to increase business.

    Regular readers will now know how valuable a blog can be in a business sense to give you an easy to use article management system and a means of generating good content that will help your site with search engine placements.

    This month we are going to look at how you can use your blog articles to give you even more of a boost on the search engines.
