Searching Digamextra – Approaches Advised :-

(1) Google search advised                                                                                                         I find that if I do a search on Google for something that I know is in DigamExtra, it will often return it in the search results. I did this last week and it worked.

When I visit the Digamextra website (from my iPhone browser) I can see a search button and when I click on that I can enter my search terms and it returns the appropriate posts.

Alternatively in your google search enter “site:digamextra.com plumber competa”  (without the quotes) and google will return links to the posts which contain the words plumber and competa, from the DigameXtra.com site.  Obviously change the words  plumber and competa to whatever search words you’re looking for.




I find that putting “digamextra” plus specific words for whatever you are looking for into you search engine works well. For instance the following for “furniture restorer” posted by someone in February…

We have just had a number of pieces of old dark wood and pine furniture restored and lightened by Brea in Calle Carabeo, Nerja, ( opposite No 34 ).

Vicky who owns the shop speaks very good English, and her husband, Manolo, is an absolute magician with wood.

They give you a fixed price, will collect large pieces, and return them to you fully restored in whatever finish you want.




Services Found – Thank you

 Thank you to all the people who contacted us by phone and email about cleaning our house.

We have now found someone who we are very happy with.

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
