design / IA / WordPress dev. and template adoption / hosting
In an attempt to generate wider attention on this high-end property sale, the owners of this beautiful town house / gite in the heart of the Dordogne in France, commissioned this fast turn-around website project. The emphasis was two fold: presenting this stunning property in the best possible light (easy), stuffing the site with best practice organic SEO tools and best accessibility for fast ranking results (unpredictable).
We focussed on the WordPress engine to deliver a reasonable chunk of general SE spider readability and web standards, plus implemented the latest Facebook Open Graph Protocol, Google Plus authorship markup and extensive image tagging.
A further challenge was the multi language requirement. As plugins for WP are limited, it eventually became a task of manually combining existing functionality, theme based options and manual adjustments. It works with minor limitations, but is serving the purpose of allowing multi language support on almost every page and editability of page content across the entire site via WP.
The entire site was built over the course of five days, which included a substantial high-res image gallery built and file optimisation and testing. The utilised template enabled us to provide view port responsiveness for this site as an extra bonus.
The hosting has been outsourced to a short term shared contract for this particular project on a fresh IP address.
