Getting the best from your Website – Search Facility

One of the challenges that we had when developing the new website, was to present a vast amount of information in a manageable and user-friendly layout. We believe that we have done a fairly good job here, but are constantly looking at ways in which we can improve the usability and ease of navigation.

A recent website enhancement, which may be your first port of call if you are a new visitor to the site, is the search facility. It is located on the top right of the screen, underneath the contact telephone number. We have chosen to power the search facility with the Google Custom search engine, as it delivers superior search results. The search facility, scans through pages on the following sites: Main Website, Blog, OHS Forum and General Forum. It will also soon call up results from archived email newsletters.

As with any search, to get the most relevant set of search results, try and be as specific as possible with your search. Don’t be afraid to use long key phrases e.g. “2005 Blue Ford Mondeo with MP3 player and aircon”

If you have any comments, suggestions or general input about our website please feel free to contact us at any time.
