The Hondón Villas website has always been ahead of our local Real Estate competitors in design and speed. We regularly update, validate and code check the technical site of our sites and try to ensure it works for you and follows the latest and proper coding techniques such as HTML 5 and the European GDPR privacy rules. Our in-house expert (25+ years experience) codes and changes the site for best practises, security, privacy and in particular to make our site friendly for our mobile phone users.
So it’s great that we get regular feedback from Google Insights that our site is often graded 100/100 in terms of it’s speed, usability and 85/100 for it’s mobile friendly approach. Great! Hondon Villas were the first to offer a small screen alternative of our website for mobile and tablet users, which is around 60% of our visitors now. Our main competitor locally scores 5/100 for their mobile site. As far as we can ascertain no other website in our locality gets near 100/100. Proud!
It’s important because independent stat’s and research shows that most Internet users expect web sites to be fast, usable and mobile friendly or they simply move on … a lost chance to sell or inform.
So it is in our interest to get it right for our sellers and buyers marketing opportunities. We know we have had over 1.5 million site visits to our main hondonvillas.net site alone + 10,000’s more through property portals, sister websites and social media. WOW! (and you thought Hondon was a secret!)
Having had a Google Page#1 search position for 10 years or more is no accident. We have earned it through investing in technology, good W3C standards coding and regular content! But we cannot be complacent as Google does what Google wants and does de-rank sites for poor design or slow sites! So all websites owners like us are playing a cat & mouse game with Google to stay at the top. How you do that is no secret actually but it’s a constant process and takes up a lot or resources and time.
