Carriage House vacation home site goes live

December 21, 2004

The Carriage House is a vacation rental home in Lakeport, CA. Owners George and Cheryl Smith wanted a web presence that spoke to the quality of the home, its historic value, and the various features of the home.

The site is overall a simple one, but the eye-catching design and well-organized content make it stand out from other local B&B/Vacation rental web sites. Site content includes rental details, floor plans, an extensive photo gallery, local attractions and links, amenities information, and driving directions.

The site was developed and is being hosted by BitSculptor.

Site visitors can then register for the event online, submitting secure credit card payment through the site.

Secure checkout capabilities are also used for the Bell Shoals store, which currently sells Senior Pastor Forrest Pollock's sermon series' and will soon expand to other items.

Powerful, custom site search tools unveiled

March 8, 2004

We are excited to announce the availability of our custom site search tools to our web site development clients. These tools let your site's visitors search your site by keyword(s), effectively placing every page of your site at their fingertips. Our tools have been under development for over a year, and we honestly believe that they offer a solution that is second to none in price and performance compared to other search solutions available today.

You can test the search tools on several of our live sites, including:
Lake County Board of REALTORS®
Riverside Community Church
Enviro-Safe Refrigerants, Inc

Sitewide search tools are very helpful, especially on sites with a high number of pages. They offer an easy way for your visitors to find out if certain content is in fact on your site. Additionally, site search tools are useful to you, the site owner, because searches are logged, allowing you to find out what people are looking for!

Most site search solutions on the market today suffer from one of two issues. First, they may charge a monthly or yearly fee in order to keep your search indexes up to date. This cost can run into the hundreds of dollars per month, especially on sites with a high number of pages. The second problem that many site search tools have is that they do not index site content properly--they may not index content which is stored in the site's databases, or they may only search the content found in those databases (but not the rest of the site's content)!

Our search tool overcomes both of these obstacles. First, the only cost incurred is only a one-time setup fee of $150. Secondly, ALL of your site's content is indexed, including PDFs, Word documents, and more.

Contact us today to have us set up sitewide search tools on your web site.
