Maintaining Your Listing: It’s Important to Your Business

So now that you’ve followed the steps and listed your property (or claimed your listing) on TripAdvisor, what should you do next? Here are some final helpful suggestions:

Once you have a TripAdvisor listing, click on the Business Management Centre: . Here you can optimize your listing, manage your reviews, and track your business’ performance

Optimizing Your Listing:

Photos: Add some really great photos that highlight your unique property (there is no limit to the number allowed). These will display in a carousel that visitors can click through. TripAdvisor studies show that travellers engage 150% more on pages that have thirty or more pictures

Manage Your Reviews:

Businesses are encouraged to monitor their reviews and respond as soon as possible. In a study conducted by Tnooz, 95% of respondents said they read reviews before booking

TripAdvisor users are 65% more likely to book with a hotel that responds (appropriately) to reviews

Track Your Business’ Performance:

Regularly track your business’ quality of reviews, quantity of reviews, and popularity ranking


Make sure the information about your property is accurate so that guest’s expectations are met and your reviews remain positive overall


Encourage your guests to leave reviews: properties that have more reviews receive nearly four times more page views on TripAdvisor. Use:


The quality and quantity of reviews are combined to rank each property in its popularity. Rankings are not assigned by TripAdvisor; they are determined by a combination of review quality, quantity and how recent the reviews are
