Optimizing Your Listing on Rent-in-France

Tips on Creating & Maintaining Your Rent-in-France Advert:

We CANNOT stress enough how beneficial it is to have an informative and attractive Property Listing!! An advert that has a Full Description, Good-sized photos, Up-to-Date Availability Calendar, Rental Rates information, Local Area & Activities information etc... will receive up to 800% more enquiries/bookings! 

It is very simple to do any changes to your listing! We have provided all the necessary features to describe the important characteristics of your property.- SO WHY NOT USE THEM TO THEIR FULL POTENTIAL!!?? 

Here are some useful tips for each section of your Rent-in-France advert: 

ADVERT TITLE:

The title element of a web page is meant to be an accurate and concise description of a page's content. This element creates value in three specific areas and is critical to both user experience and search engine optimization:
Each Rent-in-France Listing will, in time, acquire its own Google index - Therefore, it is important to try and include words/key phrases that potential holiday-makers may search for when looking for property to rent in France. Creating a descriptive, keyword-laden title tag is important for increasing rankings in search engines. 

As title tags are such an important part of search engine optimisation, implementing best practices for title tags makes for terrific low-energy, high-impact SEO results. The recommendations below cover the critical parts of optimising title tags for search engine and usability goals:

Be Mindful of Length:

70 characters is the maximum amount of characters that will display in the search results (the engines will show an ellipsis - "..." to indicate that a title tag has been cut off).

Place Important Keywords Close to the Front of the Title Tag:

According to SEOmoz's testing and experience, the closer to the start of the title tag a keyword is, the more helpful it will be for ranking and the more likely a user will be to click them in search results.

Consider Readability and Emotional Impact:

Creating a compelling title tag will pull in more visits from the search results. Thus, it's important to not only think about optimisation and keyword usage, but the entire user experience. The title tag is a new visitor's first interaction with your brand when they find it in a search result and should convey the most positive impression possible.

Here are some examples of 'Titles': 
- Normandy Holiday Cottage with Pool in Manche, France
- Holiday apartment Cagnes-sur-Mer, Cote d'Azur, France
- Var Holiday Home with Pool in Aups, Provence, France
- Self-Catering Valescure holiday gite St. Raphael, France
- Brittany holiday Villa rental in Morbihan, France near beach


seomoz.org is a good additional info site....

SHORT DESCRIPTION:

Write a short summary of the main description including key words/phrases that have been included in the title, the location of the property and how many it can sleep etc. 

MAIN DESCRIPTION:

Try and include as much information as possible with regards to the Location of the Property, Property Facilities and nearby Amenities / Activities / Attractions. 

SPECIAL RENTAL CONDITIONS:

Include information about any additional charges that the renter may incur, the deposit amount required to secure the booking, cleaning costs etc. 

TICKBOXES & FACILITIES:

Try and fill out as much of the information as possible, including: Kitchen facilities, no. of Bedrooms/Bathrooms, Lounge/Dining seating, Garden Furniture, Parking facilities, Changeover day. 

MAP LOCATION:

In the location drop down select the department that the property is located in. Then, if you enter the town and postcode in their correct fields - This SHOULD find the exact location. If Google does not find the correct location, then email us and we will help - there is another way! 

PHOTOS:

Each listing on Rent-in-France can have up to 22 photos, plus 1 main photo! We highly recommend good-sized, clear photos - width of photos should be approximately 1000 or 1200 pixels in width. Try to include photos of the Property interior/exterior, garden, pool area, surrounding attractions and nearby villages etc...

AVAILABILITY CALENDAR:

Try to keep your calendar as up-to-date as possible! A property that shows to have weeks that have already been booked looks far more attractive compared to a property that has no bookings at all! - It is amazing just how often we hear this from holiday-makers!! 

RENTAL RATES & PRICES:

We recommend displaying future rental rates up to 6 months or even a whole year ahead - if possible!? You are able to display 'weekly' prices, 'weekday night' prices and 'weekend night' prices for each month/collection of months. 
When you make any changes, remember to save them! All changes will be instantly updated on the site.
