Having Website Issues?
We are constantly striving to improve our website functionality and design. This means we’re continually making small tweaks and changes to different aspects throughout the site to improve the guest experience. Occasionally, a developer will try out a new design or functionality and may decide to reverse it because it’s had an effect elsewhere or otherwise doesn’t seem to fit with the design or functionality we’re going for.
Enter “caching”. Caching is the ability for your browser to retain some information about a site or page you’ve already visited, in order to optimize future visits. This is not limited to our website, but is a function used on all sites you’ve visited. Ever notice your property may seem to sit in roughly the same location in the results when you search for it? Or that you’re new to our program and can’t seem to find it on third-party sites at all? That’s most likely caching at work.
With that, we’d like to introduce instructions on how to optimize your experience as an owner, to ensure you’re seeing the site the way a new renter would see it when they arrive on the page. This should help not only with our websites, but also with searches on VRBO/Homeaway, Airbnb, TripAdvisor/FlipKey, and other third-party channels where you may be frequenting to check your property.
