All Travel Sites- Niche Travel Directory, a niche travel directory was just started to support the travel related aspects of our growing SEO business. As it turns out we have multiple clients in the travel business, so a travel directory will be a valuable part of those marketing endeavors.

The travel directory was set up using the PHPlinkdirectory 3.4 script. We have multiple directories, but this is the first directory using the 3.4 version. The user interface is very easy to use, as it does compare to the earlier versions that we have used. But it also has a lot of improvements.

The biggest improvement that I love is the use of blogging features, such as an integrated article directory and the ability to add comments to individual listings. I have been a fan of directories that use these commenting features for sometime, but this is the first one I have owned with this feature...All I have to say is...sweet.

Do You Have a Travel Site?

If you have a travel site I recommend that you head on over to the travel directory and add your site. For a limited time, free listings will be added with the "Nofollow tag" disabled for the first year. After a year the listing owners will have the option of upgrading or having the "Nofollow enabled".

Please feel free to add any travel related articles as well.

Penn State for Youth Hockey

Last weekend, Lizzie and I had an overnight trip to Penn State to watch my son play in several youth hockey games. Sadly his team did not do to well, having lost both games that we where there to watch.
We did however get to do a little cruising around the State College campus to include a visit to the Penn State Creamery, which actually sells ice cream that is made on the campus as part of their dairy educations program. Individuals and organizations from all over the globe come to Penn State to take the Ice Cream Short Course, to learn how to make fantastic ice cream. And I must say, the Chocolate chip ice cream was delicious.

We also had the pleasure to eat at the Mad Mex restaurant for our evening dining on Saturday night. I had the most delicious Thai Curry Burito which had rice, curry of course and lots of pineapple.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn, and were very please with the hospitality we received. The brown bag breakfast was un-expected but very welcomed.
All in all, I would say we had a very relaxing little trip to State College, and I am sure that we will be back in the future, as my son will with out a doubt, play hockey there again.
