All Members’ Listings are automatically granted “verified” status on our platform and will have a blue tick displayed next to the Listing Name so visitors know those Listings are accurate and that Listing owners are contactable.
Listings can be found using advanced search and filtering.
Filters vary, depending on the type of Listing, but some of the more common filters include ‘Categories’, ‘Regions’ (Towns), ‘and Tags/Keywords’.
We encourage Members to fill out their Listings as completely as possible, in order to extend their customer reach.
Placing a Print Ad in the Whezzit gives a Listing a certain level of prominence in online search, depending on the type of Whezzit advert.
Promotional Listings appear on our Home page, and other high-traffic pages, for a time, giving them greater exposure.

The analytics are laid out in a clean, simple fashion, that’s easy to understand and digest.
Listing Views (Unique)
This is the first time a unique visitor looks at your Listing and the uniqueness is determined by looking at their IP address.
If a unique visitor ever looks at your Listing again, this counts as a ‘view’.

Active Whezzit Ads
This is how many of your Listings are currently advertised in the Whezzit Directory and promoted online.
Users that are logged into Windcape, can leave reviews on Listing pages to help others make better-informed decisions.
As part of the reviews, users can upload images, give star-based ratings on individual areas of experience, as well as give an overall star-based rating.
Build up your reputation and improve your listing’s search prominence by accumulating positive ratings and reviews.
Everyone has to start somewhere and may not have their reputation built up, so not having any reviews isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Listings can be rated by different criteria, depending on their particular Listing Type.
Reviews are always moderated and can only be submitted by registered users.
Listings are tied to a Free or Paid subscription, so as long as the associated Listing subscription is active, the Listings tied to that subscription will be as well.
Listings with an active Whezzit Ad are promoted on the Windcape platform. Promoted Listings get higher priority in online search and exposure, and special designation badging. The duration of these promotions depend on the type of Whezzit package.
Basic level – Whezzit Line Ad and Block Ad:
Standard level – Whezzit Business Card and Banner Ad:

Promoted Listings are designated by a gold line next to the business or brand name.
