There are MAJOR problems with the BTB's network of sites, they are doing an "upgrade" that may kill 15 years of hard work for search engine placement, and many many Belizean websites.
I fear they are incompetent, and do not know what they destroy.
Here is just a small list of problems one can check yourself:
1. All major Belize websites are no longer functioning. Go to anyone and see. This includes:http://www.toucantrail.comhttp://www.toucantrailbelize.comhttp://www.belizemediacenter.orghttp://www.belizetraveltrade.orghttp://www.belizetourism.orghttp://www.tasteofbelize.comhttp://www.belizeemergency.nethttp://www.septembercelebrations.comhttp://www.belizemaya2012.com
2. The main BTB website, Travelbelize.org is severly degraded - check out the marina in the Cockscomb (http://travelbelize.org/attractions/rainforest-inland/cockscomb-basin-wildlife-sanctuary-2.html
) and pictures of our wonderful barrier reef.
3. Toucan Trail use to have top ranking in Google for "budget hotels in Belize". Check for it now. There are over 100 properties that only presence online is the Toucan Trail, and the BTB is ignoring the fact that their web presence is gone. Do a search on "Ruthies cabanas Dangriga" and see what happens.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. For the life of me, I can't understand how no one has seen this, it has been a full week since it happened and the BTB sends out a message about how excited they are about upgrading their web presence. They may be upgrading it, but they are letting 15 years of search engine placement go in a week. They are letting a network that has been built on lots and lots of money and time invested, go to waste, but no one else seems to understand what they are destroying. There is no way any one competent would allow sites to go dark while upgrading.
