how to appear high in our web pages
Our locations are displayed in a category system, and within a category (such as Mansions)
each location is given a priority rating from 0 to 999. The priority is worked out as follows:
:: location "quality" (rating 0 - 300)
- a subjective scoring up to 300 points. Is the location unique / fashionable / desirable?
Do we have lots more like it, or is it a "one-off"?
:: picture quality (rating 0 - 250)
- quality of the images: do they show the location off to its best advantage?
Are the shots recent?
:: "nearness" quality (rating 0 - 250)
- up to 250 points. This is to do with closeness to a centre of production.
In the UK, "centres of production" include London (highest rating), Manchester, Glasgow,
:: an "ordinary" property close to a centre of production will score highly;
:: a less usual property (for example a beach hut) will score well even it is farther away;
:: an unusual property (for example a hill-top castle) will score well no matter where it is.
|Is the location registered with another library?
|Are similar pictures on the web site of another location library?
|Is the location a member of our exclusives club?
These scores are totted up and result in a priority rating between zero and 999 (maximum).
So to be sure of appearing among the first locations within a category, here is the ideal:
|a "superior" location, such as an architect-designed modern home, or minimal loft, or castle
|within or near a major city
|not with any other library
||= maximum points!
Locations with the same rating are regularly "shuffled" so that each stands a chance of appearing first.
But don't be put off if your house doesn't appear right at the top. The Location Works web library is
a serious research tool which is used daily by professionals looking for the perfect location.
Even a location on the last page will be given fair consideration.
