Review Widget Magic

We recently added a neat new feature to the site. For all those of you who have your own blog or website this could be of interest to you -- a review widget for all your activities on

It’s really simple too -- make sure you are logged into SaySo then go to the review widget page where you will find the code to copy and paste into your blog/website.

You just need to answer 3 simple questions to shape your widget -- preview it then and there.  You can copy and paste it directly or get us to email the code to you!

Yes you can add videos

Not so long ago we added You Tube videos to the site. This means you can add any relevant You Tube video to any listing on the site. Videos are a great way to give further insight to people when they are deciding to use a business or service.

Gallagher’s Boxty House know how to make a good video, with this one below you not only learn what a Boxty is but also how to make it and what it looks like. In fact you can get Boxty 3 different ways, pancake, boiled or baked.

Win dinner for 2

They also know how to make their customers happy and want to give away a free meal for two. All you have to do to win is become a fan of their page on the site. All fans by Aug 3rd will be in the draw to win.

Check out the Boxty below or have a look around the restaurant.
