We’re not about to reveal our algorithm secrets any more than Google is, but what you do with your listing and how you respond to your guests does influence your position in the search results on Holiday Lettings.
Here’s how: respond, respond, respond to every enquiry and/or every booking request.
Do it now: tomorrow could be too late for the guest (beyond 24 hours will impact your response rate), so prompt responses count too.
How you respond today as well as how you did last month and continue to over time are all factored in, so every response really does count.
Also influencing things: offering online payment via Holiday Lettings (it’s what guests want); the popularity of your listing (if people like it, there’s likely a queue of more wanting to see it). It’s not an algorithm factor but travellers can further sort their results by reviews; homes with the most reviews will show first if this option is selected.
Every search is unique because guests sort and filter their searches by different options. So your position will always shift from search to search.
