Entries & Layout

We create an entry from supplied content. The layout of entries ensures that every boat, equipment or service is presented in a consistent format. The entry is written in the style of a press release and to emphasise certain keywords for search engines. To ensure that the Shock Mitigation Directory website does not include leisure products each product will reference professional users. If a third party disputes a professional reference it will be removed.

You are responsible for supplying electronically to the Company, high resolution photographs which are suitable for publication on a website. All photographs will be digital images displayed in a landscape format. The main image will usually be of the boat, equipment or service. Images 2, 3, 4 should present a variety of views or detail of the boat, equipment or service or show it in use.

Categories & Order

As the Shock Mitigation Directory evolves we will create new categories and sub-categories. Our decision is final regarding the appropriate category or sub-category for each entry and the order of each entry. Where possible entries will appear in categories or sub-categories in size order. If size order does not apply entries will appear in A to Z order.
