As well as building websites for clients, we also have a series of our own brand websites. Late 2008 we bought a number of domains and clients from another design agency which was closing down. One of the brands they had was Open Golf Accommodation, a website with information about the Open Golf Championships and related hotel and accommodation options.
www.opengolfaccommodation.co.uk provides us with a great mix, both golf and accommodation are popular keywords which can generate high value traffic and that gives us the option to sell ad space, publish advertisers articles and swap links with related websites.
When we took over the site it was a mish mash of html and frontpage, with outdated content and poor layout. To give us a flexible platform from which to develop the website we put together a standard content management system using Open Source Ruby on Rails, now we can easily add and edit new pages, tweak the navigation and include keywords and meta tags at the same time.
Do you like golf? Either way, take a look at the website and let us know what you think!
