What a great meeting!!
28 members and 4 guests. 32 in all makes it our best turn out yet… and we did it without Paul Booth… and yet there was still somebody in the car park at 5.48am, – Jason Nortey.
Guests included Ed Crocker for the second time and who it is anticipated will be a member next week. Stewart Roberts a business coach and Diane Mathews an electrolysist. I do hope she joins, if only to find out the lengths some of us blokes will go to to improve our appearance.
Chairman’s Blog – Meeting Thursday 21st March 2012
A disappointing turnout, 21 members, slightly alleviated by two visitors; Jamie Adelizzi, offspring of the Suprema magnet Michael, who is on work experience, therefore also on breakfast experience and Ed Crocker operations manager of Nationwide Same Day Couriers, which apparently “does exactly what it says on the tin”. Ed expressed an interest in joining and an intention of coming to the next meeting which was very good news.

27 present including Mark & Ian Buckley from JJB Electrical. They are completing an application form. We also managed to get one of them up a ladder when the projector could not be made to work. Apparently the projector wasn’t connected up but if their electrical skills match their agility they will be a useful addition to the meeting.

28 present including visitor David Studd, a business coach.
Jason Nortey delivered the education slot this week urging us all to keep an eye on our businesses generally; making sure that we checked our past performance, kept up with and thanked our best customers, as well as doing our day to day work. It was a very helpful contribution.
Some time ago, Matt Cutts, one of the senior quality engineers at Google, released an excellent video that explains how Google works. I’ve included this video below and it is well worth a watch to help you understand the many many factors that help to decide which pages are shown in the Google search results when you type in your query and click the search button.
More recently than this though, infact last week, Google have released a new Interactive Infographic that goes into more detail and explains lots more about how Google Works.
The infographic is split into three parts:
- Crawling and Indexing
- Fighting Spam
And each part allows you to explore further information and links to useful resources.
It goes a long way to explaining how over one hundred billion searches per month are processed. Pretty amazing really!
The post How Google Works appeared first on Eseyo Website Design and Search Engine Optimisation.

Good turnout, 28 present and apologies for absence from all those unable to turn up. Congratulations to all members.
The Ed slot was delivered by Scott Griffiths who had asked us all to set out 3 things we thought people did not know about us. We then had to fit the name to the information. It did help illustrate that we knew each other as members very well as identification was largely successful and helped confirm the point, namely the better you know your fellow members the more likely and able you are to make effective referrals.
You’ve probably seen the famous quote around before – “If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do a job, wait until you hire an amateur!” but it is ever so true in the Web industries.
At least once a week when I meet with new clients or even existing clients I hear them say that their son, daughter, niece, nephew, next-door-neighbour or other such connection is capable of doing the services that I am suggesting they purchase from me.

Our second anniversary meeting and a great turnout, 29 members and one visitor Chris Holmes. This was his second visit and he is completing an application form to join. A great way to herald our second year.
Chairman’s Blog – Business Networking Meeting Thursday 14th February
24 present – 23 members and 1 guest, Chris Holmes of AD2000 Services Limited.
Slightly lower than usual attendance brought about perhaps by absent members stealing some Valentines Day duvet time. I think all of those who attended the meeting would agree that we discovered something that was better than sex………….well almost!!
I will do my best to try and sustain the aforementioned myth by describing the excitement of the meeting as best I can.
