May 3, 2012 Website Update

There have been some improvements to the website. If you look at the Link Directory link in the toolbar of Newark, Ohio Links, you’ll find a few more ways to discover the websites connected to the city. They are organized in a few different ways and more will be added. 

The old link system was outdated and the new one is more flexible and easier to update. The admin will get instant notification when a bad link is found so the directory will stay updated with nothing but valid links. 

New websites that have been added are – 

The types of sites deleted due to failed websites – 

  • Geese Control Company
  • 1 Landscape company
  • Licking County Sports score website.
  • 4 Personal blogs that had either quit posting for years or were gone.
  • 1 bed and breakfast
  • 1 Hotel
  • 1 office supply store
  • 1 restaurant
  • 2 Bars
  • 1 clothing store
  • 1 Pizza restaurant
  • 1 Firearms instruction school.
  • 1 Travel Agency
  • 1 Golf Course
  • 1 Clothes Cleaner
  • 1 Tanning Salon

It’s sad to see so many sites leaving. Many are failed businesses and others are giving up on owning their own websites and resorting to the walled content at Facebook. As Facebook begins to lose followers, I expect to see some of these return to the benefits of owning their own website again. 

Some of the new websites are Yellowbook websites with nothing more than a few photos and a phone number. It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing. 

The new link system may not look much now, but I will phase in more functions later. It will also free up some time for other features that I’ve been wanting to add. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
