Yippee… Google says our main website WWW.HONDONVILLAS.NET is faster than all our competitors! In fact our HOME PAGE scored a perfect 100 for desktop and 95 for mobile today with Google! *
*Why does this ‘page speed’ matter?
Well, we want the end-user to get the most out of the website and ensure that potential buyers don’t drift off to the competition. Google tell us that faster websites get more enquiries and conversions – and 90% of people use Google to make informed choices of products and services! Now how fast a website loads varies from minute to minute as there are many external factors that influence a website’s speed. But page speed is a critical factor to end-users! If a site is too slow users soon get fed up and move on, (we’ve all done that right?). Indeed Google deems it a very important ranking and search factor these days, it’s part of their legendary algorithm.
In-House Web Development
Hondón Villas host and manage a few property and blog websites to help promote our client’s homes for sale or rent. As we have our own in-house web developer we have full control, speed and design flexibility in how we present, optimise and manage our websites…. down to the core coding.
Faster. Full Stop!
We can react to issues faster, add new offers, banners, change the layout and add properties quicker than agents with off-the-shelf products. Our main websites are bespoke and optimised for speed and mobile devices. Our web technology and coding is checked for errors and standards. We write content and code that Google likes… yes there is a knack to all this and it’s not automatic that Google likes a website.
Google Page 1 Ranking for Years!
All that extra work & web knowledge pays off as Hondón Villas have enjoyed 10 years of Page #1 search Ranking with Google. As we compare ourselves to local Real Estate competitors, most don’t have a clue on how to get listed or ranked by Google. And we get 1000’s of page hits every week. Even we are surprised at the interest in this “secret” we call the Hondón Valley!
Simply, having a fast and popular website is work work work! So it’s nice that Google recognise our sites as better than most.
