  Search Engine Optimisation
Posted by: webnetics - 30-09-07, 12:43 PM - Forum: Latest News - No Replies

The internet is a crowded and competitive marketplace with literally billions of websites competing with each other for people’s attention. To make the most of your website’s potential you need to have the best possible rankings on the all major search engines. It doesn’t matter how good your website looks, how impressive the ordering process is or how easy it is to navigate, if people do not know about it, they can’t use it.

Although you can submit your site yourself, manual submissions have limited effectiveness and due to the sheer scale of the task involved it restricts the level of exposure to only a small handful of search engines. With Submit Xtra you benefit from effective and comprehensive search engine optimisation software designed to give your website the competitive edge.

This service will be lanuched on the 5/02/2006

  Companies Act Regulations as of January 1st 2007
Posted by: webnetics - 30-09-07, 12:40 PM - Forum: Latest News - No Replies

Under Government Legislation introduced on 1st January 2007 companies in the UK must include certain regulatory information on their Websites and in the Email footers.

Failure to do so is a breach of the Companies Act 1985, and you could be liable to a substantial fine for authorising the issuance of a non-compliant document.

Companies to update websites and email footers before 2007 Companies in the UK must include certain regulatory information on their websites and in their email footers before 1 January 2007 or they will breach the Companies Act and risk a fine.

As a result of an update to the legislation of 1985, every company should list its company registration number, place of registration, and registered office address on its website. The information, which must be in legible characters, should also appear on order forms and in emails. Such information is already required on "business letters" but the duty is being extended to websites, order forms and electronic documents.

The information is likely to appear in the footer of every email sent from a company, to avoid having to decide whether each email amounts to a "business letter" or not. Many companies do this already because the term "business letters" was thought likely to include emails even without this new clarification.

For websites, contrary to the fears of some, the specified information does not need to appear on every page. Again, many websites will already list the required information, perhaps on their "About us" or "Legal info" pages.

Information that must be on your website

The following is the minimum information that must be on any company’s website:

The name, geographic address and email address of the service provider. The name of the organisation with which the customer is contracting must be given. This might differ from the trading name. Any such difference should be explained – e.g. "XYZ.com is the trading name of XYZ Enterprises Limited."

It is not sufficient to include a ´contact us´ form without also providing an email address and geographic address somewhere easily accessible on the site. A PO Box is unlikely to suffice as a geographic address; but a registered office address would. If the business is a company, the registered office address must be included.

If a company, the company’s registration number should be given and, under the Companies Act, the place of registration should be stated (e.g. "XYZ Enterprises Limited is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1234567")

If the business is a member of a trade or professional association, membership details, including any registration number, should be provided.

If the business has a VAT number, it should be stated – even if the website is not being used for ecommerce transactions.

Prices on the website must be clear and unambiguous. Also, state whether prices are inclusive of tax and delivery costs.
