£10,000+ Monthly Revenue – Taxi Ads:

I’m very pleased to announce that revenue from adverts on the transfers pages of our Airport Guides network (http://www.heathrow-airport-guide.co.uk/taxi-transfer.html) has now reached in excess of £10,000 a month.

We’ve been very close to this target for a few months now so it’s a great personal achievement to finally surpass this figure.

After much planning and hard work, we are pleased to announce that the new and improved version of Fubra’s Airport Guides network is live!

The 23 individual websites, each dedicated to being the definitive resource for one UK airport, have a host of new features, updated content and a great user-friendly redesign. We’ve also done lots of work behind the scenes to ensure the sites are super fast, search engine friendly and appropriately commercialised.

You can see the results live on our flagship guide www.heathrow-airport-guide.co.uk.

Hi everyone, As a follow on from Paul’s blog helping you find the best Travel Insurance, I thought I would introduce myself and tell you all a bit about the work I have been doing on our newly re-launched Travel Insurance Guide.

My name’s Jennie and I work on the usability and content side of things for Fubra’s network of websites. Most recently I have been putting my efforts into improving the Travel Insurance Guide by coming up with new features, re-designing the layout and researching content to enhance the information we provide to visitors. One of the developers, Matt Ward, has been working on getting the new features ready and they are now live on the site! However, there are lots more to come and so I wanted to explain a bit about the work we have done so far and what’s left to come!

Our developers stayed late on Friday night to get our new and improved Travel Insurance Guide launched. The aim of the site is pretty simple: to help people find the best travel insurance cover for them.

When looking for their holiday insurance, some people will just want the cheapest deal, others will want the most comprehensive cover, but most will want good value with a combination of both. Our site will help them achieve that.

To do this we knew that we needed to cover the whole market rather than aligning ourselves with a specific provider. At the time of writing, we have 68 providers featured on the site and our researchers have been busy comparing each of these to find out who offers the best price and level of cover.

Right now the site offers an editorial comparison system, a providers directory, travel insurance help and advice and a guide to policy basics. In the coming months we will also be launching a forum where users can share their tips and experiences with the rest of the world.

If you are a travel insurance company who is not featured on the site, then please get in touch.

I went camping with my girlfriend for the first time in years a few weeks ago, and it struck me how fun it was. OK, so I got a bit stressed when we took a wrong turn off the M3 and had to backtrack 20 miles, and then again when we were putting the tent up, but overall it is a peaceful and relaxing experience.

It’s quite surreal seeing cows and ponys wander freely around the New Forest, but is a welcome distraction from the hustle and bustle of living in a city or town.

Unfortunately for me, I had to learn as I went, but next time I will be sure to check out our camping guide which has tips and advice for anyone thinking of going on a camping trip.
