A number of websites designed by DesignForProfit are now offline. But we always had a soft spot for Samphire.
Samphire Restaurant was an ambitious attempt to sell West End quality food in a local neighbourhood. Sadly, the attempt failed — the locals preferred the cheap 'n cheerful Ethiopian restaurant next door!
DesignForProfit's website for Samphire was elegant and modern, reflecting the restaurant's style. It included an online reservation system.
Samphire's performance in the search engine's is a lesson in how search engine behaviour has changed.
This was fifteen years ago, before the internet had really taken off. And with little effort, the restaurant was able to rank in the top three listings on the first page of Google for search terns like restaurant north london and restaurant hampstead! Unimaginable today.
Nowadays, such success would be very hard to achieve.
