Cairns Unlimited takes off!!!

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

I figured I should sneak one blog update in before the new month. What a month October has been for Cairns Unlimited! Loads of new advertisers, a serious spike in traffic through the site (up 40% on September, and in fact over the last couple of days more than double the September average!) Then Cairns Unlimited’s Google page ranking leapt straight from a zero to a three (non-webbies won’t really appreciate that, except in as much as it is obviously a good thing!)

And somewhere in there, we found time to buy a new car. Well, not new … better than new! A 1992 European classic, a calibra, built in Germany and brought into Australia between 1991 and 1996 as a Holden. It’s a trip down memory lane for me, as you’ll see by the photos below. The car on the left is the Calibra I bought in 1999 and sold before my last round-the-world trip in 2003. The pic on the right was taken last week at MACHANS BEACH, right here in Cairns. This one needs a bit of work, and it will be some time before it is back to its former glory. But we’ll get there.
