Timor Black Bamboo

Here's the rock garden - you can see where I have put rocks over and on top of the paving that is underneath.

The paving underneath was simply too well done and solid for me to start lifting it out - considering the main part of the driveway is still in use and any lifting would spoil the integrity of the paving overall.

Large river rocks and smaller river rocks fill the surface over so you cannot tell the paving is still underneath - except that the strength and firmness of the paving makes for steady walking over the pavers.

Here is my pregnant wife an the bamboo growing like mad!

Garden Plants at the Markets

The Value Of Markets Directory

At The Australian Markets Directory, we have collected the attention of a vast group of people with similar interests, beliefs and experiences – that being Local Markets.  And as a focal point for these many businesses, markets organisers and enthusiasts, we are able to offer a unique selling proposition – having the industry as a whole at your fingertips.

Now we have the attention and focus of the Australian Markets Community, it is important to channel that value into the best proposition for new and existing member of the directory.  And we do this by offering a direct connection between your individual concern and the wider markets community. 

After we have assessed your application and where applicable, edited your submission to meet our strict quality control guidelines, you will be granted a listing in the directory.  This opens up great opportunities for your brand and with the consistent online promotion of the Directory, increased exposure to traffic and potential business arrangements.

It is critical that whislt we value so highly the attention and participation of the markets community, we do not go too far with cross promotion or advertising of content that is not directly related to the specific niche.  So you won’t see ads for locksmith North Carolina or Real Estate Vancouver.  Just real world listings of local real world business and markets and stallholders.

Newcastle Website

 A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I did once partake in the pleasure of the company of the esteemed Internet Marketing Guru – and for a moment there, we made the connection (big deal back in those dial up days).  Yes indeed, haven’t we all met an Internet Marketing Guru?

So, um yeah, at Newcastle Digital we can spin unique content and have your site zipping with traffic, especially locally and mobile where the biggest growth is forecast.  Crucially, Newcastle Digital fills a local niche and local mobile search is the future.  People want online support for where they are, right now.  No national clunky corporate can offer the specialized individual support we share when you build and manage your search engine optimization program, right here in Newcastle.

The Three Pillars of Wisdom any Internet Guru worth her salt will share with you are Original Unique Content dense with your niche specific keywords.  That means copy written original articles specifically about your niche, about your business and about the topics and issues that are current in your business and affect your customers.  Newcastle Digital has a University trained copywriter and we understand you would expect punchy, sales converting articles to promote your business.

The second Pillar of Wisdom is onsite optimization – that is a website that has all the SEO features that facilitate ease of indexing and findability.  Like seo friendly urls and attention to detail with alt tags and the like.  Onsite optimization is ensuring that your website has all the features that will make is easy to be found.

The Third Pillar of Wisdom, and one that is most difficult to define and track, is off page optimization.  This is where the search engine measures the number of links pointing to your site and measures the inbound links for quality, authority and relevance.  So you want links from respected industry organization ‘s websites and as opposed to links from free for all link farms based in Eastern Europe.  Get the picture?
