Easy ways to boost your hotel listing

Link to your hotel listing

An easy and effective way to increase visibility for your hotel listing and to make sure that it is displayed prominently by search engines is to add links to your hotel listing on VegTrip. If your hotel has its own website, blog or any other page those all make ideal places to add links to your listing.

If you login and go to edit the details of your hotel, you will find templates at the bottom of the page that you can copy-paste for convenience. Otherwise you can just as well create your own.

Frequently update your hotel details

It's very important to display up-to-date information on your hotel page and to make sure that you let visitors know about what's going on in or around your hotel. Every time you update some textual information on your hotel listing, we will list your hotel on the front page as recently updated, greatly increasing exposure of your listing.

 

 

Let visitors know what's going on in or around your hotel

A great way to increase exposure of your property is to make visitors aware of what you have going on there for the moment. Do you offer special time limited offers or events? Is there a festival going on? Those are just some examples of what may generate interest from visitors. You can add up to three such promotions for your hotel at a time and doing so will highlight your hotel on our front page as well as on the special promotions page

Use social media to your advantage

About 30% of our daily traffic is coming directly from various social media networks so it's needless to say that a strong presence here might generate a lot of interest in your hotel. Each hotel page on VegTrip is optimized for easy posting in social media. On Facebook for example, the main hotel image along with the short hotel description will be displayed by default when posting the link to your listing.

Another social network which is very popular with our visitors is Pinterest. It's particularly well suited if you have some great images of your property uploaded.

 

 

Add high quality photos

The photos of your property and it's surroundings is one of the most important things a visitor will look at. Many hotels on VegTrip are located in truly stunning locations so it's essential to have photos that makes the location justice. Remember that these are the photos that will represent your property every time people are talking about it in social media. There are many professional photographers around that can help you with this.

 

VegTrip available in additional languages

In order to make the website more easily available for additional markets we have worked on partially translating some of the most visited pages of the site. For the moment we have translated the major navigational part of the site, while hotel content still remains in English.

We are now offering VegTrip in German, Swedish and Romanian with French, Italian and Spanish version to follow shortly.

A big Thank you to all our volunteering translators!

Luxurious vegetarian paradise in Mumbai, India

There is no doubt that India is one of the top destinations for vegetarians. With nearly 30% of the population being strict vegetarian and a big part of the others having varying degrees of meat restrictions vegetarian meals usually makes up more than half of the menu in most restaurants. With so many different dietary requirements, many restaurants are also accustomed to modifications, which is good news for all vegans.

One of the latest additions to VegTrip, The Trident Bandra Kurla is a luxurious five star hotel in Mumbai. Featuring three different restaurants (Indian, Italian and mixed) all having large vegetarian selections and being extremely flexible with special dietary requirements (vegan, gluten...) this hotel guarantees a warm welcome to India.
