Recently Updated Specialties Page

by

New:

Organizations who have recently updated their Specialties Pages are now listed together on one page.

Example:

http://members.barriedirect.info/updated-specialties-pages/

Breakdown:

The recently updated pages are organized in two ways. First, they are separated by Enhanced and Basic Specialties Pages. Recently updated Enhanced Specialties Pages come first, followed by the recently updated Basic Specialties Pages.

The recently updated Specialties Pages are then broken down by the date and time of the last update.  The most recent updates are found at the top of the category.

However, Enhanced Specialties Pages always come first, no matter how recently updated the Basic Specialties Pages are.

For example,  Golf Hunter Inc., with an Enhanced Specialties Page, was updated 5 months ago:

Even though The Flower Place.ca was updated 2 weeks ago:

Golf Hunter Inc. would come before The Flower Place.ca because it is in the Enhanced Specialties Page category.

Features:

Merit badges: Merit badges are placed on the left hand side of your logo and reflect how recent the update was with a gold, silver or bronze badge.

Time of last update: The time of the last update is shown so that everyone knows how recently your page was updated!

Headline and subhead: The first Headline and first Subheading from the Specialties Page are pulled into this list to provide more information about the organization. This also creates consistency between pages.

These headings were taken from the Specialties Page here:

Logo and name: The organization name and logo are shown in the Recently Updated Specialties Page list for easy recognition

There is a maximum of 20 organizations in the list for recently updated Specialties Pages: 10 Enhanced Specialties Pages, and 10 Basic Specialties Pages. Organizations can get their names on this list simply by updating their Specialties Page. The more your Specialties Page is updated, the more your name can be featured on this list!

“Last Updated On” Date, “Verified Authentic Page Published by Owner” label and Merit Badges added to each Product Page

Now: These improvements will be added to each of the Product Pages (Start, Profile, Brands, Contact etc.)

With the addition of “Last Updated On” date and Merit Badges onto product pages, Business Members are now being encouraged to update more than just their Listings.

Placing this date on each Product Page lets users see how current the information is on each individual page. This being said, the Merit Badges also change from page to page, depending on the date of the last update.

Just as on the Listings, the breakdown of the Merit Badges is as follows:

The “Verified Authentic Page Published by Owner” label identifies pages that are managed and maintained by actual businesses and organizations. Similar to the “Verified Listings Published by Owner”, this label builds trust, credibility and shows that you are paying attention to your listings.
