Dear ExplorOz Reader,

Since last fortnight, we've made some visual and structural changes to the site. We highlight the changes throughout the newsletter but the most obvious of all is that the home page has been completely transformed into a fully dynamic page which changes throughout the day based on visitor activity. It's all designed to give you ease of access and show you at a glance what parts of the site everyone else is using.

New Trek Note - Wilbinga - WA

Close to Perth, Wilbinga is the ideal day trip. Suitable to any level of experience from beginner to expert, its the closest beach driving trek to Perth. This trek note was put together by Jackie and Juliana after a great day out on a recentExplorOz Members Gathering

In the site menu, you'll see that Business Search has been renamed Directory and it's been completely redesigned.

Changes are: search functions have been significantly improved, not just with a new look and feel but also with a better method. Search results are now truly ranked by relevance to a keyword or search string and once you've made a selection from a list, you'll go to the Advertiser's very own ExplorOz page. At a glance you'll quickly see what products and services they offer and precisely where they operate. Each Advertiser's page will also give links to related pages on ExplorOz where you can read unbiased articles before you buy, and where relevant, view other similar retailers or manufacturers. You can also view the top keywords used by site users - this is accessible from both the Home Page, and the Directory page - results are live, and aggregated across the month.
