Keyword searches on VillaSeek
April 22nd, 2009 by Tom Kerswill

I’ve finished adding a new keyword and description system to VillaSeek. We’ve been playing about with this for a while, but it’s now fully implemented.

On your customer control panel (http://www.villaseek.com/customers), there’s a “Keywords / Photos” page for each villa. As well as uploading up to eight photos, you can also enter keywords and a description for your villa.

These are embedded into your listing page as meta data, where Google can read them — potentially enabling your individual listing page to appear higher on Google when people search using those keywords.

The main advantage is on VIllaseek itself, though. If potential holidaymakers enter a keyword (eg. “sleeps 4”, or “near sea”, etc.) into the search box on the front page of Villaseek, then your villa will come up if you’ve also entered those keywords.

So it’s a way of adding more information to your villa page, and increasing its visibility when people do keyword searches.

The best way to use the keyword search area is to enter a comma-separated list of potential keywords into the box on your control panel, and then press the update button. This adds the keywords to your page, and also to our search system – ready for people to find your villa when they search using the appropriate keywords,

As always, drop us a comment below if you need any more info about the system – or feel free to contact us via email or phone if you’ve got any specific questions!
