The best way to list Vebra properties on your website is using their "API" service so that buyers stay on your website. If your property links start with "www.vebra.com" then you're not getting the most from the service.

This involved a wholesale review of the code and a lot of meetings to come up with the best way forward.

Tracking user behaviour can help you tailor your website to users' needs and keep them on your site.

If for example you found that hardly any users actually scrolled to the very bottom of your web page you may then decide to either condense your content or adjust it so more users are likely to view it.
