Why Feedback Ratings Make Things Worse, Not Better

Today’s understanding of feedback has reversed those terms. Positive ratings are a kind of holy grail on sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor, and negative reviews can sink a burgeoning small business or mom-and-pop restaurant. That shift has created a misunderstanding about how feedback works. The original structure of the loop’s information regulation has been lost.

Do This To Gain Instant Trust With Hotel Website Visitors | By Dave Spector

Social proof is critical to easing the worries of potential guests. In fact, a study in the Washington Post showed social proof had more influence over customers than a discount. This is why a guest review site like TripAdvisor is so popular and impactful on purchase behavior. As travelers and meeting planners are faced with more and more hotel options, it's vital to win their trust first, to win their heart and their wallets.

Escaping The Advertising Void: How Blockchain Can Help Us Stop Spending Billions On Digital Ads

by Melanie Mohr, CEO and founder of YEAY Google parent company Alphabet booked more than $54 billion in ad revenue in the first half of 2018. Meanwhile 30% of US internet users turned on ad-blockers – and that’s a conservative estimate for younger users. So how much reach do those targeted ads really have?

Koh Kood: The Prettiest Island in Thailand

I almost didn’t go. After spending three beautiful days on Koh Mak, I was convinced I’d found the best island in Thailand. It had everything you could need from a place to call paradise. The food was delicious, the locals were welcoming, the beaches were gorgeous, the views were spectacular, and there were hardly any tourists around. When you throw in getting to stay in one of my new favourite guesthouses — Bamboo Hideaway — I had a solid case for cancelling the rest of my plans in the country...

Are TripAdvisor and Yelp credible?

The more skeptical among us would have you believe that online review sites are all fake news. TripAdvisor is full of good reviews businesses pay for. Yelp is an online mafia of extortionists. In an era when anybody can pretty much say anything online and people will believe it, it’s hard to know how much of what we see on online review sites is true. Equally as difficult is determining how many allegations of review fraud are also true. Are review sites completely discredited? Or are they st...

Do You Really Need a Guidebook to Visit Hawaii???

In the age of smart phones, are guidebooks necessary? For most visitors, the answer is "No." Most visitors are seeing Hawaii for the first time, staying for about a week, and mainly want to hit the highlights and log some serious beach time. Each island has its top attractions, which are easy to identify and find. And, since Yelp and TripAdvisor have been on the scene, books are of little help in finding good restaurants. But ... If you are adventurous and independent, and want to ge...
