Do you have two locations that need to use the same SiteLink location code? No problem! StoragePug has got you covered with our Satellite Location feature:
What Is the Satellite Location Feature?
Simply put, our Satellite Location feature allows you to use one SiteLink location code for two different location pages on your website.
Here is a brief video overview of the feature:
What Are the Benefits?
Beyond the obvious benefit of being able to use one SiteLink location code for an additional satellite location(s), let’s have a look at some other benefits that are a result of using the Satellite Location feature:
The business address & directions to each location are clear for the customer when renting online
Google Business Profiles can be created for each location which points visitors to the respective location page on your website
Your web presence is increased (significantly) with the addition of satellite locations on your website
Amenities & features unique to that location can be accurately represented on their own location page on your website
Setting up Your Unit Type Names in SiteLink
If you are going to be using a single SiteLink location code for two locations, then you need to take special consideration when it comes to creating your unit type names in SiteLink.
When you enable this feature in Insights, which we will look at below in more detail, you need to be able to differentiate which unit types need to be selected for each location.
Using the example screenshot below, both of these locations are using the same SiteLink location code. You can see their unit types names have some language that clearly differentiates which unit types need to be at which location:
In our example above, all of the unit type names for their Emerson Ave. location begin with EMERSON AVE. All of the unit type names for their College Parkway location begin with COLLEGE PKWY.
How to Enable the Feature in Insights
Now that you have all your unit type names set up and differentiated in SiteLink, let’s have a look at how to enable the Satellite Location feature within Insights.
Shared Location Code
We turn on the option to only assign certain units to this location
We can select the unit assigned to that location.
Example unit type name for a main location: Drive Up - Lubbock (A).
Example unit type name for a satellite location: Drive up - Lubbock (B)
