River Meadow Ranch
Website For Vacation Home Lodging in Whitefish Montana
The River Meadow Ranch in Whitefish, Montana needed to improve its search ranking. The old site has very little text but worse yet, the robot text was noindex, nofollow meaning that the site told search bots not to follow the website and not to index it for search results.
The owner provided many beautiful images which we slightly enhanced and reduced file size on before featuring on the website.
We designed the site with mobile users in mind. We anticipate the site will viewed more by mobile users than with desktop users. There is a separate menu just for mobile users.
We built the website on the WordPress platform for its ease of use. We installed a premium theme that boasts many features such as premium image slides, the ability to add testimonials, responsive headers for desktop, tablet, and mobile specific.
Colors and Fonts
We chose a palette of colors to reflect the colors of confidence and trust – colors with hues of green and blue. The off-white background color makes the site easy to read.
Optimized For Search
Each of the 14 pages has a complete SEO title, SEO description, and all images are appropriately titled with a complete ALT description to help the site be found by search engines and indexed.
Google Analytics and Webmasters Tools
We installed Google Analytics in the website for tracking website visitors and allowing for Google Adwords advertising to track conversions. We submitted a the website’s sitemap Google Webmasters Tools to monitor the website’s health and learn more about the site traffic and organic search terms.
Currently, the River Meadow Ranch does not offer online bookings. We created a form for guests to complete to request a reservation. The goal is to have guests book using the site instead of OTAs such as HomeAway or Airbnb.
