Edinburgh - UK free Wi-Fi capital?
For us Wi-Fi has been one of the great enabling technologies of the last few years.

We use it all the time on laptops in offices, cafes, hotels etc.

Edinburgh is especially great for free Wi-Fi sites - there aren't too many streets that don't have a cafe providing it free of charge.

Contrast that with London. When we visited recently, but we didn't come across a single free Wi-Fi site. There must be some, somewhere...

The Blot May Newsletter

  • KRA Architects showcase projects
  • Kenneth Reid Architects is a dynamic, design-led firm of Edinburgh architects working particularly in the commercial, residential and health sectors.

    We've just completed their website which showcases their imaginative and innovative work in a series of project pages.

    The site is managed by the Blot Content Management System, which has a special module developed for projects.

    So, in addition to managing their page text and graphics, news items and job vacancies, they can add and amend projects in different sector categories - allowing prospective clients to quickly see relevant examples of their work.

  • Google Churns
  • Google own such a position of power these days that your site's ranking on the search engine can make a huge difference to your business' success. Some businesses have even folded when their sites have 'disappeared' from Google.

    This, coupled with the fact that only Google insiders know the ranking algorithm and its subtleties, makes keeping an eye on your ranking a potentially fraught occupation.

    Recently, the rankings have had some major fluctuations back and forth, which is a little unusual.

    Are you concerned? Is there anything you can do?
