HKGSEO Provides Free Website SEO Analysis and Consulting Services
HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 5 January 2021 – The COVID-19 epidemic has lasted for nearly a year. The sharp fall in the street traffic has been affecting core shopping districts everywhere. In addition, under the “Anti-epidemic Fund”, the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) launched the ” Distance Business (D-Biz) Programme subsidy. Increasing number of large and medium-sized enterprises have turned to the online market, setting up websites and opening online shops, in an effort to open up online sales channels to recover some of their businesses during the epidemic.
As many companies are not familiar with website technology, website optimization and SEO promotion are often ignored. In fact, SEO is one of the highest ROI of many online marketing channels and it is worthy of a long-term investment.
HKGSEO has performed SEO for more than 500 enterprises, with the SEO process bringing considerable traffic and sales to the companies. Leveraging on their years of experience, they now provide free website analysis (worth HK$2,000) for all content types. Here are some website analysis projects HKGSEO has engaged in:
CMS Web Content Management System
We recommend using the most popular CMS in the market to build a website. Well-known CMS such as WordPress, Wix, Shopline, and Shopify will make it easier to manage web content and make the website easier to crawl and index by search engines.
HKGSEO hence cautions against web design companies that use their own CMS. Generally speaking, these websites are not SEO friendly. For example, they might have undesirable attributes such as duplicate page titles, dynamic URLs, or category pages that cannot update new content, etc. These attributes are disadvantageous to implementing SEO plans, which ultimately leads to the redesigning of the entire website, resulting in a much higher cost.
SSL Website Security Certificate
If your website does not have an SSL certificate (HTTPS) installed, it will be marked as an insecure website by the browser, which will adversely affect the credibility and conversion rate. SSL should be installed immediately to protect customer information, especially for e-commerce websites. There are some free SSLs available on the market, such as Let’s Encrypt, with paid premium certificates recommendation by online shops.
Mobile Version of The Website
The latest personal computer and Internet penetration survey published by the Census and Statistics Department shows that more than 5.97 million people in Hong Kong have mobile phones, and 99.7% of the users access the Internet on smartphones, higher than those connected to computers or other devices. Besides, Google has launched the Mobile-First Indexing mobile version of content priority indexing. If your website does not have a mobile version, the ranking will be poor and a lot of traffic will be lost.
Website Loading Speed
According to research, more than 68% of viewers will leave a website when it takes more than 3 seconds to open. The main reason for the slow loading is the use of shared hosting or non-local hosting. Switching to local hosting, SSD or CDN can effectively improve the loading speed.
Is the website content of high quality? Does it answer the questions of potential consumers? To build up the content, some corporate websites have piled up keywords, and some have published blog articles regularly. However the content of the articles is sometimes plagiarized from news media. Plagiarism makes search engines recognize the overall website quality as low, which will in turn affect the ranking.
Websites and online shops are platforms that promote businesses. An optimized website will reward twice the results with half the effort of both online and offline marketing campaigns combined.
Please log onto www.hkgseo.com, fill in the website, email and contact number, and our network promotion experts will reply within one working day and arrange a free SEO analysis and consultation.

Suncity Group believes that HOIANA will bring significant revenue and sustainable development prospects, and is a demonstration of its determination to gradually evolve into an integrated resort operator and actively expand its resort management business.
In addition, through Suncity Group Holdings Limited (1383.HK), Suncity Group is now the single largest shareholder of Summit Ascent Holdings Limited (102.HK), and participates in both operations of Tigre de Cristal Resort Phase I in Vladivostok, Russia and the development of the resort’s second phase. Currently, Tigre de Cristal Phase I is the largest integrated resort in Russia, with a positive trend in business and revenue growth driven by the local Russian clientele.

The project covers an area of over 20 hectares and is set to open its doors before 2023, creating the hub of entertainment of Philippines together with our local partners.

Adhering to the spirit of patriotism, Suncity Group has been actively supporting the policy of the Macao Special Administrative Region Government, placing the development of the Motherland as our top priority. Through the business expansion of Sun Food and Beverage in the Mainland, Suncity Group aims to bring in the best of foreign cultures and contribute to the country’s prosperity. Since last year, Sun Food and Beverage established 8 restaurants in Chengdu and Chongqing, including “Danang Vietnamese Cuisine”, “Pho Thuy”, “Bangkok Cock” and “Đồ ăn vỉa hè Hoi An Danang”. Together with HOIANA, invested by Suncity Group Holdings Limited in Central Vietnam, the Group strives to introduce Vietnam’s culture of gastronomy to the Mainland.
In order to further expand its footprint in the Mainland, Sun Food and Beverage is preparing to open more quality branded restaurants in 2021. In the meantime, Sun Food and Beverage has successfully created new cooperation opportunities for the catering industry in Macao and the Mainland by taking initiative to organise investment visits to the Mainland. Currently, Sun Food and Beverage is actively supporting the “Luzu Temple District Renovation Project” of Chongqing as the company plans to open at the site more branded restaurants presenting Vietnamese cuisine, not just to increase company revenue, but also to help reinvigorate the old district. In addition, Sun Food and Beverage is preparing to set up a joint venture with Macao’s catering industry and open 3 restaurants in the area, bringing Macao-style hot pot, Portuguese cuisine and local desserts to Chongqing. This move not only enriches Mainland’s catering market, but is also a way to support the Macao Special Administrative Region Government’s core effort to promote Macao as “Creative City of Gastronomy”.
In the entertainment sector, Sun Entertainment Culture Limited has been actively expanding its entertainment-related businesses, covering film productions, online films, concerts and other commercial performing arts. In 2021, Sun Entertainment Culture Limited will expand its footprint in Southeast Asia through its subsidiaries in Japan and Malaysia, and is also enthusiastically preparing for the full recovery of the film industry this year. Currently, productions of film and TV drama invested by the Group from last year have been completed and are scheduled to be released in 2021, including “Limbo” starring Gordon Lam, which is scheduled to participate in international film festivals, “Dust to Dust” starring Gordon Lam and Da Peng, “Mom, Don’t Do That” produced by and starring Alyssa Chia. In addition, Sun Entertainment Culture Limited will be producing Macao’s first action and car racing film this year, with Han Han as producer of the film. For the acclaimed films “SPL: Sha Po Lang” and “Paradox”, production of the sequels “SPL III: War Needs Lord” and “Paradox II” will also begin in 2021.
As Alvin Chau, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Suncity Group stated, the tough year 2020 is now in the past. With the new COVID-19 vaccines being distributed worldwide, the global economy is expected to soon recover, which will be conducive to a strong growth of the motherland and Macao’s social, economic and tourism sectors in 2021. At the same time, staying true to the core values of patriotism, he understands that the prosperity of Macao and the country are inextricably linked. In the future, Suncity Group will continue to look forward to a prosperous future together with the country and Macao by vigorously upholding and following the long-term direction of the country in all aspects.
