TripAdvisor to add direct business listings for hotels globally
Many hotels on TripAdvisor have long felt ripped off because reviews of their properties make TripAdvisor and its advertisers — often competitors of the hotel — big bucks, but there are no direct links or contact information for the property itself.
TripAdvisor announced today that the policy will change on all its global websites beginning Jan. 4, 2010.
At that time, hotels on TripAdvisor will have the option to pay a flat-fee annual subscription for TripAdvisor Business Listings and will be able to display their properties’ URL, telephone number and e-mail address.
