Well, January has flown by, what a start to 2013. We’ve picked up a couple more clients including Ashby Crane and co who specialise in Jewellery repairs in Exeter . They offer a truly world class service and we’re delighted to be helping them grow their online presence.
In other news, we’re moving (again), which is a shame because we love The Barton in Dunchideock but we feel our business will be better to suited to the environment which the Innovation Centre at Exeter University offers. We’re really looking forward to working from such a prestigious location. We’ll keep you updated on the move.
We’re very hopefully that 2013 will see the development of a least one app for both iPhone and Android, these apps will be aimed at making you life easier. We’re hoping they’ll be free to download but a final decision has yet to be made, again we’ll keep you posted.
2012 saw another big change to Googles algorithm and with spring just around the corner I’m sure they’ll be another interesting change by Google – the Good news is, if you are already a client of our you shouldn’t any massive changes to your rankings as we solely focus on white hat techniques.
Right, that’s all from the home of Exeter’s number one SEO Company.
Thanks for reading.
