Specific comments made about this task

Birmingham City Council - 2013-12-18
On Google search the results page was called Petitions, but on the internal search it was called Citizens - 'Have Your Say and Make a Contribution' which isn't very helpful

Birmingham City Council - 2016-07-18
Getting to the petitions was quite easy, but the whole process of then going on to create an account, create a petition, and wait for it to be validated was a bit of a pain

Bracknell Forest Council - 2014-03-18
Other websites appeared much higher in the google search results

Camden Council - 2014-02-13
Both searches work very well (1st result), but navigating to this page seems impossible. Content-wise, there is a lot of procedure and guidelines text and several pages to go through before you reach a page where you can actually create a petition, so that could be easier.

Copeland Borough Council - 2014-02-12
I was only able to find the external petitions site via the Google search

East Ayrshire Council - 2015-08-18
nothing about petitions, also the search function is broken. hitting enter refreshes the page and if you click Search it will refresh the first time and actually search the second.

Essex County Council - 2015-08-18
no info or pointers on how to actually write or submit a petition

Fylde Council - 2014-03-12
Although Google found the information very easily and took me to the right page, when I clicked on 'create a petition', I got a page not found error!

Gravesham Borough Council - 2014-12-08
Even though the council is called Gravesham, the area is Gravesend and typing this in Google means it doesn't come top.

Liverpool City Council - 2015-01-15
I couldn't find petition information.

Manchester City Council - 2014-02-13
Excellent seamless integration between the online petitions system and the CMS site. Seems odd that I was unable to find it via navigation, though.
