Did the Doorway Page update go live yesterday?

James Norquay's profile photo
 
Have noticed some decent movement in the last few days for some sites which evidently have plenty of doorway pages. Need to compare more data tho, most of the serp visibility tools on the market only monitor mid-head terms as well.

Is the Google Doorway Page Filtering Active?

not sure my site gets very little traffic any way, but my blog at blogspot.com seems to be doing a tad better.

Is your polling station accessible to wheelchair users

One of my websites supplies portable wheelchair ramps.

I've been doing this for over a decade now and find that we tend to get a number of last minute enquiries about wheelchair ramps for polling stations.

You would think they all have it sorted by now, but I hope not ;-)

Impossible to submit a Google My Business local page reinstatement request

https://support.google.com/plus/troubleshooter/2690129?p=reinstatement_request

The 2nd last question when trying to submit a reinstatement request is;

Did you hide your address? If you don't conduct face-to-face business at your location, you must select the "Do not show my business address on my Maps listing" option within your dashboard.

There is no longer an option to do this in the dashboard, but if you click no, you can't submit a reinstatement request.

How can a reinstatement request be made?

How annoying is that? - 99 / 100 User Experience due to AdSense Ads

99 / 100 User Experience
Consider Fixing:

Size tap targets appropriately

Some of the links/buttons on your webpage may be too small for a user to easily tap on a touchscreen.

Consider making these tap targets larger to provide a better user experience.

The following tap targets are close to other nearby tap targets and may need additional spacing around them.

The tap target <div id="abgc" class="abgc">AdChoices</div> is close to 1 other tap targets.

Lovely little wildlife park and gardens with lots to see and do. The beauty of Cotswold Wildlife Park is it is compact but without being crammed which enables you to have a pleasant stroll all around with out missing anything. Set in lovely unspoilt grounds even the children's adventure playground blends in nicely as it is mainly wooden climbing frames and slides nestled in the shade of the trees. The restaurant is basic but prices are reasonable, ice creams and drinks don't cost an arm and a leg like comparative attractions. The trip on a miniature train is a must as is the children's farmyard area and the star of the show has to be the playful Asian Small-clawed Otters

Good old traditional butcher who prepares joints to the customers request. Always friendly and provides helpful advice on the best joints to use if ask what is best for a particular meal. Plenty to choose from and the preparation of chestnut stuffed turkey crowns for Christmas is 2nd to none. Nice selection of traditional sausages and in the better weather also supplies ideal barbeque titbits

Great service, great product, great price. I had been putting off getting a new kitchen but then decided at the last minute to go for it. I called in at Howdens in Stratford on the Tuesday, took a couple of samples home, ordered kitchen on Wednesday and it was delivered on the Friday. One length of worktop and 4 or 5 door fronts were out of stock, but I told them my carpenter was booked in for the following Monday and Tuesday so they did some chasing around and got them to me 1st drop on Tuesday morning from another branch. Very pleased with the finished kitchen, the quality is better than I expected and the price was a good £500 lower than I expected. With the saving I had made I decided to get some up stands to match the worktops and a nice pewter coloured glass splash back for behind the cooker and thankfully these were both in stock and ready for collection. The staff at Howdens were very friendly and helpful, I received a price on the same day I dropped in the initial measurements and they also did me some mock up 3d views and scaled drawings so I was sure I was ordering right kitchen. All in all a very pleasant experience with great assistance from friendly knowledgeable staff.

I used M K M Electrical Engineering Ltd to totally rewire my new house in Honington and was very impressed with the service provided.. I have completely refurbished the whole house which meant getting numerous trades in, and as anyone with any experience will tell you, the way these trades work and the reliability of these trades is key. With M K M a simple phone call was all that was needed to arrange them to do the various stages and they always turned up when they said they would, always did a good job and always finished when they said they would. They were always smart, polite, tidy and cleared up after themselves. They went out of their way to help and never moaned about the little extras, like adding a light over a dressing table, adding a mirror/light/shaving socket combination in the bathroom and a couple of extra outside lights. The price was reasonable, they completed the stages before invoicing and supplied the lamps and fittings at cost price. All in all, I had a great, reliable, trustworthy service from M K M Electrical Engineering Ltd

Broadway Hill is the 2nd highest point in the Cotswolds and with Broadway Tower being 55ft tall it means when on top you are the highest point. What's nice about Broadway Tower is the three floors have been divided in to different sections depicting different eras of the tower. One floor is dedicated to previous owner William Morris, another gives a more general history of the tower and it's connections with Capability Brown. From the top you can see 12 counties on a clear day and with high upstands you feel totally safe, even if you don't like heights. The staff are very friendly and will tell you more history of the tower, and it also has a nice little gift shops selling all the usual things you would expect, plus a few you wouldn't "Chocolate coated deer droppings!" Set in a lovely location Broadway Tower is lovely for just a short couple of hours visit and on a lovely windy day it is even nicer.

I used Daniell Plumbing Ltd to completely re plumb and install a new central heating system in my new house at Honington. Everything went like clockwork, they always turned up on time, didn't leave jobs half finished and left everything nice and tidy. They supplied all the materials for the central heating including; cylinder, boiler, raiators, valves and oil tank at a reasonable price, and also supplied the showers and sanitary ware for the downstairs cloakroom at cost price. The pipework was nice and neat and located where it was easy to box in and the bathrooms both look a treat. I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending and using Daniell Plumbing again.

Great Service. It's been a few years since I made some Home Brew Lager but I suddenly had the urge to try my hands at being a brewer again :) I've no idea where all my old kit is so decided to order a little home brew starter kit from Trafford Homebrew. Despite only ordering online on Sunday afternoon I was pleasantly surprised when it turned up today (Tuesday) All very nicely packed and as described. It's all up to me now, if I use it properly I'll be having a drink and toasting Trafford Homebrew in a few months time :-)
