You may be a perfect Airbnb host who has an admirable short-term rental property with all household bells and whistles imaginable, predicts and fulfills all the needs and whims of guests, and always hires professional cleaners to keep the vacation rental home at its best. And still, all these hard endeavors might not be enough to get lots of booking requests to roll in.
How is that possible?
The matter is, the booking rate of an Airbnb property doesn’t entirely depend on its loveliness, modern comforts, and professional care. Instead, it all depends on how visible your Airbnb listing is to potential clients. And that is where Airbnb listing management (or Airbnb SEO) reveals its paramount importance.
What is Airbnb SEO?
Airbnb search engine optimization (SEO) involves complex enhancements to be done to your Airbnb listing (advertisement) so it appears on the first page of the search results. Great visibility of an Airbnb listing enhances your chances of making a deal because customers are very reluctant to check out more than the first 2-3 search result pages when looking for accommodation in a given area.
The ranking of each listing on the Airbnb platform is determined by a smart Airbnb algorithm. This artificial intelligence uses more than 100 factors to assess the value of each listing and define its place in search results.
Airbnb’s algorithm builds its list of recommendations based on what the machine has learned from the millions of searches that resulted in confirmed bookings in the past. The algorithm also considers specific data provided by the user, such as desired destination, previous reservations, properties in a wishlist, and more. To top it off, the machine is ever-evolving to keep pace with the fast-changing traveling environment.
How Does Airbnb’s Search Robot Work?
When a guest applies filters to find a short-stay rental home in a particular location, Airbnb’s robot carries out a complex job to compile a list of the best offers that match the provided criteria. It scans the listings in terms of their quality, popularity, price, and reviews so that a guest is presented with the most relevant and credible offerings.
To improve the listing’s exposure, a host has to do lots of work, such as identify the optimal keywords to describe the rental, analyze the offerings of successful competitors and Superhosts in a given market, understand what the target audience is searching for, and perform lots of other things to drive more traffic to the listing.
