We are relaunching www.resdiary.com to help increase the bookings you get from our site. We’ve done a lot of work improving the SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) of the site so that it appears at the top of Google diner searches in your area.
This means that www.resdiary.com is going to have a lot more diners visiting and you might need to make some improvements to ensure that you’re appearing high on the page for your location and cuisine.
Update your text
Do you just have “gastro pub” written as your description on www.resdiary.com? It’s time to fix that. The more information you put on your page, the more likely diners will find you and make a booking. Without telling everyone your life story, you should add some more text to your microsite, focusing on what food you serve, and the history behind your venue.Update your text
Now we don’t wanna nag, but some of you still have Christmas 2017 menus on your site. Guests want to know that what they’re seeing is timely, so you should regularly update your menus, making sure they are your most recent.
Apps like Instagram have trained diners to “eat with their eyes”, and how your venue looks online can have a big difference to your bookings. If the photos on your ResDiary site are not up to scratch, now is a good time to refresh them.Upload photos
Using promotions is a great way to attract people to book your restaurant. In later iterations of our site, we’re going to give diners the option to search by promotions, which will help attract more bookings. If you run a pre-theatre menu, or a discount on Tuesdays, add it to your ResDiary promotions and get more bookings.Set up promotions
Update cuisine tags
The new site will allow people to search for restaurants by both location and cuisine. And we filter those results by the tags on your microsite. If you’re an Italian restaurant in London and you don’t have “Italian” tagged, you’re not going to appear in relevant searches.Set up new tags
We can’t stress how important it is to take ResDiary Reviews. Take reviews! Not only do they help you move up the rankings on www.resdiary.com, they can also help with your own site’s Google ranking, as Google pulls ResDiary Reviews through to your Google Business page.
If you don’t take reviews, you won’t be ranked high on our listings, meaning the chance of potential diners finding you is less.
