A little history

(please go here to read on separate page and leave your comments)

This is a brand new website (created February 2018) – and this is the first post.

Bbut the story starts many years earlier:

I created another website about air compressor a few years ago:

That site grew and grew, more content was added and more and more people visited the site: more than 2000 visitors per day to be more exact.

But there was a problem. There were two main ‘types’ of visitors looking for information:

Those working at, or owning big factories with huge industrial compressed air systems. And those working in a small business, or pro ‘do-it-yourselvers’ using much smaller compressors – I call those ‘workshop compressors’.

I couldn’t help both types of visitors effectively on one website.

So I decided to split the website up: for the big industrial compressor stuff, and this brand new website for the smaller ‘workshop type’ air compressors. I named it: “The Workshop Compressor”.

A scary move, and I hope it will all fall into place, especially with the Google rankings. But it was needed.

I hope you like the brand new website. I got some great ideas for new content and some online tools for you to use (coming soon!).

If you have any comments or suggestion, please let me know 🙂
