Hello!

Paphos Life has a News section. We scour the web looking for suitable articles, and post snippets of them here. The process is semi-automatic. Once we have identified a News Source, we write a routine to import a link and create a news article.

If you are worried about content duplication, don't be.

  1. We never print the full story.
  2. We include a nice big button at the end of the snippet, directing the reader to the News Site the story originated from. News Sources
  3. Every news page we show has the HTML attribute "CANONICAL" set to the originating page. In English, this means that the search engines know that your page is the source of the article, and our page acknowledges this. News Sources

If you are a News Source and you want us to use your stories, just drop us a line at admin@paphoslife.com. We don't ask for any back links in return, and you won't have to provide us with any technical details. We will examine your site and work out the simplest way to extract data.

If we are using your news site and you would like us to stop, please also contact us at the above address. We will be happy to oblige if that is what you want.

Love Paphos

The Garden of Memories

Back in June we were approached by Geoff Eccleston. He wanted help creating the online presence of a charitable drive he was organising for the St Michael's Hospice. The aim was to build a peaceful oasis for their residents and visitors to relax in. The appeal is now well under way, and construction of the Garden began some time ago. They are still short of their financial target though, and need money for ongoing maintenance and a wheelchair ramp. With that in mind we thought we would do a blog showing you how far the project has already come. It would be great if you could dig your hands into your pockets and help them hit their total, but even if you can't, have a look at the blog and see what is possible if a group of people put their minds to it...

Abandoned Villages - Makounta

We recently assisted on a litter cleanup along the nature trail to Argaka Reservoir. While we were there, we couldn't help but notice the abandoned village of Makounta on the other side of the valley. We were also curious where the nature trail went once it passed the reservoir. So the other day we returned with our camera. This is what we found...
