How do I write a listing?
You need to think about what a visitor to Coast Radar is doing. They are most likely asking “nearest” questions like where is my nearest beach cafe, my dearest surf school,..

Make sure you add a good photo and don’t duplicate what you have on your own website. Try to write a slightly different title and description then our page will list in Google search results to different searches to your own website.
