Getting Your Business On The Map

I have just completed the registration process to get The Gables Holiday Cottage, Crail onto Google Maps. This is almost the final piece of the jigsaw in promoting this lovely holiday home on the web.

We launched the site about a month ago now and are now happy that it has found its way across most of the search engines, and in particular to Google. The next task has been to set it up as "location" on Google Maps.

To do this we used Google's "Local Business Center" and registered "The Gables" as a new listing. We then put the full business details plus photos, and web/email links on the site and submitted it for indexing. Having verified the listing ownership by phone it is now live on Google.

What this means in practice is that the relatively tiny site now sits among the "big boys" in the area, and has every chance of appearing on the front page of a Google search that includes "Crail" as a search term. At the moment it is a little way off the top spot, but we're confident that it will move up the listings as it gets more widely indexed.

We're also in the process of listing the new website with a lot of free holiday accommodation listing websites for the area. This should increase its exposure and enhance Google's impression of it as a widely indexed site. We'll be tracking the results and let you know how well it all works.


New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
