Optimised search results for the BCCI website

To provide a more dynamic and searchable online directory of member business, the BCCI website was recently optimised to ensure anyone who searches online for services in Bungendore will now find the relevant Chamber webpage on the first page of their search results. For example, anyone searching for 'Bungendore restaurants' will see a direct link to the Chamber's restaurant page on their first page results. The same will hold true when people search for other categories such as accommodation, shops and galleries, professional services etc. This new feature provides even more reason to take advantage of FREE member advertising on the BCCI website! If you haven't already done so, simply send your business name and contact details and a few words about your business – along with your logo and up to three photos – to secretary@bungendore.com.au
