Elite Ayrshire Business Circle websites achieve two major milestones
The online web presence of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle has successfully passed two major new milestones.
Visitor numbers at Ayrshire Scotland Business News, the Circle’s rolling local business news blog, have now passed a quarter of a million.
And the Circle’s collection of images on Flickr, the photo and video hosting site, has now welcomed more than 100,000 visitors.

Frazer Coogans Solicitors senior director and Elite Ayrshire Business Circle executive chairman Norman Geddes commented: “Our Flickr photo collection is a unique archive of some 1,600 images illustrating major events and successes achieved by our member companies over the last five years.
“And our business news blog Ayrshire Scotland Business News contains over 1,100 articles covering the same period, permanently archived for posterity and highly accessible to search engines.
“It is notable that 62% of our visitors come from outside the UK, so our websites provide a great shop window to the world, particularly for Ayrshire’s exporting companies.”
The top ten countries for visitors to Ayrshire Scotland Business News are as follows, followed by actual visitor numbers to date:
United Kingdom 95,190
United States 46,268
Norman Geddes concluded: “We are delighted to report these latest highly satisfactory visitor numbers, and look forward to continuing to provide our member companies with more of the same powerful publicity and visibility on the Internet, especially during the current challenging economic climate.”
In addition the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle has its own website at http://www.eliteayrshire.com and also provides Elite Ayrshire Business Circle News at http://paper.li/f-1319150860 - a weekly compendium of local, national and international business news.
The Elite Ayrshire Business Circle is now accepting applications from potential new members.
