Tightlines-Portugal website

Tightlines Portugal web design, promotional material, site management – good SEO

Tightlines-Portugal websiteJohn Bate commissioed a small website back in 2005 for his fledgling angling holiday, guiding business in the Algarve region of Portugal.  This served for a couple of seasons to get him started, but it soon became clear that the business needed a bigger and more efficient website to manage the information that was coming from trips with customers, testimonial, and ever developing new venues and hotels.

In to 2009 Hooklinks undertook a complete rebuild and loaded all the existing data into a new Content Management System that had the scope to develop to match the aspirations of the business, allow regular editing and updates with a blog of news as it was happening.

In late 2009 a new section was added that promoted property for local clients and businesses, this utilised much of the hidden features of the holiday site, adding the benefits of a Google map showing the locations of the properties and allowing a closer look at the area by any prospective home buyer.
