Date 1 March  2009

Well its that time of the year again, with the first two months gone. Most businesses, I think would agree that they where bad trading months, although new car sales are reported as significantly up on the same period last year. I see a significant drop in the volume of vehicle auctions, as well as the prices of some used cars, most likely the result of them not moving off the showroom floors.

I am very pleased with the progress we have made with our Sports and Exotic vehicles that we have index by make. These pages have continued to show improved positions in search results and  improved traffic volumes.

Future business plans are coming along slowly, and market research is about to start in earnest. Needless to say the services currently offered by Auto Start  will continue.    



That's it for now
