Thanks for the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the new look. We think it makes allmediascotland more user-friendly, not least in providing the opportunity to directly comment – anonymously too – on individual stories (there’s a comment box at the bottom of each and every Spike story).
Crucially, the site is now much more stable and therefore able to handle our increasing levels of traffic.
Some of you have bemoaned the death of the single Spike column, but splitting stories by sector means it should be much easier to navigate the site and search for that cracking tale a few days after publication. There is now a much more comprehensive search facility, whether for a specific Spike story, or media release, or skill being promoted in the directory.
The proof of any publication is in the readership, and our numbers are up. Most new readers are from the UK, but welcome to the loyal readership from Applecross – no, not over the Pass of the Cattle on the west coast, but Applecross, Eastern Australia.
